Best Honeymoon Option for August

Recommended Posts

Good evening, ladies!

I'm getting married next year in August and have been looking for a honeymoon

destination that isn't wracked with bad weather because of monsoons or hurricanes.

We're looking for a place to spend roughly 12-14 days with a combination of beach,

activities, and day trips.

What places would you avoid? Where would you go? We're working on options first.

We've already been to Greece, Jamaica, the Bahamas, the Caymans, Mexico, etc. So

we're looking for something else! Any suggestions and help would be great - we're

kind of getting lost with options and aren't sure what to do because we don't know

if we should go somewhere after I move (my fiance and I will be living in London)

or leave after the wedding from Michigan.

If I were you, I'd go directly from your wedding in Michigan to Mackinac Island, Michigan.  It's close, so you don't have to hassle an airport, flights, time chages, etc.  You can just get there quickly and start your HM immediately.  And they have everything you are requesting there.    Or if you are determined to go far away on a plane, go to San Diego,.  Weather is always perfect, and they have a delightful mix of beaches, museums, sports, day trips, etc.  We HMed there.

Depends on your vacation style and budget, here are a few options I am sure if you get a travel agent they would be able to recommend some others


Napa Valley, Ca

Hi ………………!   We took a 14 day honeymoon in CA last year, in 14 days we had 20 minutes of rain. We flew into San Fran from Detroit, spent 4 nights there, rented a convertible, and drove down the coast of CA on the Pacific Coast Hwy all the way to Coronado Bay near San Diego, and returned to Michigan from the San Diego airport. Multi-city flights are not that much more than round trip. We stayed at various places along the way (Carmel, Santa Barbara, Malibu, then Coronado). The views are fabulous, there are plenty of beaches (though we are not beach people), we did the Hollywood touristy stay, went to the Monterey Aquarium (best I've ever seen).   You've traveled to a lot of great destinations, so this might be a bit boring to you, but for us it was perfect.   If you want more info, just send me a private message via link below with your email address and I can send you some info. The email address is important because without it I can't send you anything.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
