Did you go on HM? Not yet! We're shooting for May of 2012.

Where did you go? Either Italy or Washington, DC

How did you decide on that location? We've always wanted to go to Italy. But if we can't afford it by January, we're going to go ahead and book for DC. We have DC as the backup because there's so much to see and do, and we love museums.

Are you going/Did you go on HM? yes, a few days after our wedding we will go.

Where are you going/did you go? Buenos Aires, Argentina and Uruguay!

How did you decide on that location? Beunos Aires is very inexpensive, a lovely city to explore, and we'll be renting an apartment for a week+ for less than the cost of a hotel! Food is great, the dollar goes far, and they call Beunos Aires the Paris of South America. We'll make a stop in Uruguay for some relaxation time on the beach.

Did you go on HM?  Hopefully we will; it depends on if FH can get off enough time.

Where did you go?  We're going to spend one night at this B&B (http://www.woldert-spence.com/) and then we're going to spend a few days at my future SIL & BIL's cabin in Arkansas.

How did you decide on that location?  My FH fell in love with that area of Arkansas, and he always wanted to bring me up to the cabin to visit his sister, BIL, and family.  We were originally going to stay at a B&B in Hot Springs, but we figured that we couldn't afford it.  So I search and found the B&B in Tyler (which is where he is from) and we both loved it.  We were going to spend a few days there, then we found out that his BIL received a promotion and they would have to transfer to the Buffalo, NY, area.  Since they were keeping the cabin in Arkansas for the kids when they grew up, his sister said that we could use it for the honeymoon.  A cabin by ourselves in the woods, and we don't have to pay for lodging?  Too good to pass up!

Are you going/Did you go on HM? We are going the day after the wedding!

Where are you going/did you go? We will be going to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

How did you decide on that location? The original plan was to take a trip to Japan. We however have changed locations because we are in the middle of buying a house and didn't want to stretch the budget too thin.

Are you going/Did you go on HM? Yes. We left the day after our wedding on a 7 day cruise to the Caribbean!

Where are you going/did you go? We sailed out of Galveston, Texas and went to Jamaica, Grand Cayman Islands and Cozumel.

How did you decide on that location? I've been on cruises before and absolutely LOVED it! Your cell phones don't work, so it's TOTAL privacy! It's so relaxing and not to mention FUN! My parents knew I wanted another cruise, so they gave it to us as a gift! We can't wait to go again!!

Are you going/Did you go on HM? Not yet. We will be taking our honeymoon next summer.


Where are you going/did you go? We are not sure yet -- deciding between Europe and Hawaii. I really want Europe, and DH really wants Hawaii. If we can afford Europe, I'm definitely going to push for that ;-)


How did you decide on that location? We both want to go somewhere that is romantic and honeymoonish. Aside from the super expensive private islands that we can't afford, we figured Hawaii and Europe are the two most romantic options. We love being outdoors, sightseeing and seeing beautiful places. Especially anything that involves nature or history!

We've done a few road trips and had a blast so when Cali came up in convo we were like "Yeahhh, let's do it!!!"

Are you going/Did you go on HM? Yes. We left 10 days after our wedding. The last of our overseas guests (my parents) left 8 days after the wedding, so we took a day to pack and organise etc then left the fllowing day early for the Honeymoon.


Where are you going/did you go? We did the first 2 nights in a very nice hotel in the mountains (Drakensberg, South Africa), and then the following 3 nights in a luxury bush safari game lodge (Nambiti Game Reserve, South Africa).


I should probably mention that we LIVE in South Africa!


How did you decide on that location? Well we won the 3 night stay at the luxury game lodge so that made that decision lol! And for the extra 2 nights we went to the mountains because it is a fairly close drive to the place that we won, and we've been to another area of that mountain range before and loved it. 


We did want a longer honeymoon but we kept it shorter to save money. And we were going to go somewhere further afield (after the game lodge) but again we reevaluted after looking at the budget lol!

Are you going/Did you go on HM? Yes, we left the Monday after our wedding

Where are you going/did you go? We went to Mexico and stayed at Secrets Maroma

How did you decide on that location? We originally planned on going to Germany for Oktoberfest, but by the time we looked into it, everything was booked up or way over our budget.  We had been to mexico before and loved it, so I looked around for some adults only resorts and then we decided on Secrets.
I'm SO glad we went there instead of Germany.  It allowed us the time to actually relax after all of the wedding chaos and really enjoy our time together as husband and wife :)

Are you going/Did you go on HM? Yes we are going one day after the wedding.

Where are you going/did you go? We have decided to go to Curacao!!

How did you decide on that location? Doing tons of research. I picked this spot because it wasn't overly touristy. It's a destination that I don't see lots of people picking for their honeymoon. I wanted to go to a spot and be able to tell people about my experience without everyone saying: "Oh I've been there".

Where are you going/did you go? Ras Al Khaimah - 7 days

How did you decide on that location? We booked the trip "last minute" and because we will stay at the Hilton Hotel we decided to take this far country (it will be a hot hot HM!)

Are you going/Did you go on HM? Yep! We leave at 6am the morning after the wedding.

Where are you going/did you go? We're taking a 7 night cruise on Royal Caribbean Serenade of the Seas. We fly to San Juan to hop on the ship, then we go to Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Maarten, and St. Croix before heading back to San Juan. We're spending two extra nights at the Ritz in San Juan. It's almost the exact same HM that plumcrush went on! :)

How did you decide on that location? Ideally, we would have gone to Italy, but we don't have enough $$ yet. So then we were going to go to Hawaii, but it just was missing something. We've done all-inclusives and cruises, and we LOVED the cruise because we're not really sit on the beach kind of people, so we decided on the cruise so that we could see these gorgeous places and do lots of different things! :) Plus - it was cheap!

Yep we are going to stay on Maui for an additional week following our wedding.  It just made sense to stay where we are getting married but we are going to the other side of the island for a little separation from our guests.

Are you going/Did you go on HM? Yes, but not until next June (8 months after our wedding).

Where are you going/did you go? Still deciding between Europe, Iceland, or Australia and New Zealand. It's looking like Iceland.


How did you decide on that location? Will most likely go to Iceland because the dollar goes a long way and it looks absolutely beautiful.

Are you going/Did you go on HM? yes, we are going the day after our wedding at 8 am!... did i mention where we are having the wedding is a 3 hour drive from the airport!


Where are you going/did you go? mayan riviera


How did you decide on that location? We had looked at a ton of options including hiking up kilamenjaro or backpacking india.. but eventually we decided that a) we need some relaxing time... especially since we are doing ironman canada 6 days before our wedding, then the wedding craziness we will need some time to relax b) budget, we are also saving for a downpayment on a house and couldn't justify blowing it all c) I have NEVER EVER been to an all inclusive relaxing beach vacation so I am soooo excited.

Are you going/Did you go on HM? We will be.


Where are you going/did you go? TBD. We are mainly looking at cruises since they are more affordable, but right now it is between a cruise in Italy/Greece or a cruise from Boston to Bermuda.


How did you decide on that location? Cost, weather, what we like to do. The Caribbean and Mexico are out since it is hurricane season. We love Europe, but it gets pricey. If we do the Bermuda cruise, we don't leave for a few days after the wedding, so we will do a quick stop in Martha's Vineyard or something.

Where are you going/did you go? Vegas, baby!


How did you decide on that location? FI has never been there and it's the theme of our wedding. We wanted to make sure we went somewhere where we could party as hard as we wanted to. :) Open containers on the street and 24/7 drinking and gambling? Yes, please.

Are you going/Did you go on HM? We are going on one two days after our wedding


Where are you going/did you go? On a 7 day cruise with carnival to San Juan, St. Thomas, Grand Turk, and Nassau


How did you decide on that location? We both wanted a cruise because I've only been on one before and FI loves them and we wanted ports that FI hasn't been to before.  Also, the price was great for a balcony room :)
