Where is everyone going on their honeymoon? My fiancé and I are big travellers but stopped travelling once we started started wedding planning. We’re really looking forward to a nice relaxing honeymoon, preferably somewhere beachy but also gives us the opportunity to explore. We’re also trying to find a “Zika-free” location as we’re hoping to start trying for a family right away. Does anyone have suggestions?
Another vote for Thailand! You should definitely go there! If you find cheap flight s , it's really not that expensive. We did a tour through Asia and went to Bangkok, Koh Samui, and Phuket. We stayed in four star resorts. Our total cost was $1,900 and that covered flights, hotels, breakfast everyday, lunch half the days, and a few optional excursions. If I only was able go back, I would spend a shorter amount of time in Bangkok and do more of the islands instead. I heard Koh Phang Nga is great, so it's my next destination for sure
I totally get you, my FH is going to be 29 in less than a month and he is adamant to start a family... well, as of yesterday If it was up to him we would have started trying the moment we got engaged lol
I know with me being 21 going on 22 that I'm still young, but when you are hoping to have up to 5 kids - you got to start early right?
The one thing my FH is scared of is that he won't get to be hands on with our future grand kids if he is too old... or gone...
*Baby dust sent your way for when you start trying!!*
Thanks Everyone for their suggestions! I think we’re going to check out Greece. There seems to be tons to do and. I shortage of beaches. And with a September honeymoon looks like the right time of year!
If you havent been to the Greek Islands yet I would sugges that or the coast of Italy (Cinque Terre down to Amalfi). We initially planned to do both but we dont think we will be getting enough time off work now so we've settled for just Greece. We're doing Santorini, Kefalonia and Athens in 2 weeks. There are so many beaches and beautiful sights, wonderful / picturesque hotels but also LOTS to explore and sight-see. Hikes, history etc. We plan on renting ATV's on Santorini and exploring the whole island on our on time as well.
We thought about going somewhere warm but then we considered zika, plus we figure doing an all inclusive will be a little more attainable price-wise after we have kids, as opposed to going to Europe which will probably be a bit more difficult/expensive at that point.
We are going to Scotland and Iceland...SO excited!
We'd planned on South Africa, but decided against it for the same reason. So now the plan is Europe. My FH hasn't been anywhere on the continent, but we don't want to do the backpacking thing or cram too much into too little time, so we're thinking of just tackling Italy for 3 weeks.
We’re going to Aruba. It has zika, but we’re not planning to try for a while. I did a quick search regarding zika and getting pregnant, and it said you only have to wait 3 months before you can start trying to conceive (just in case you still want to go somewhere that has zika).

We’ve heard the same thing Casey, but all the carribean is still on the advisory list 😔 at the advice of our doctor we are avoiding it. Which is a shame because I love both Jamaica and Mexico. If you do Mexico, Id strongly recommend the Royalton! We stayed there a year ago and it was beautiful. The beach had quite a bit of seawood, but otherwise gorgeous resort!
