The honeymoon should really take priority over the whole shindig but we found it difficult to find, and stick with, a plan. Our starting criteria was that it should be someplace special, exotic, a once in a lifetime experience. So we went with this:
Where else have we both always dreamed of going? How about here?
We are both super excited about this which we weren't really about any of the other options. Nothing else really seemed to fit for us right now. Yes, it Bora Bora and Tahiti are total honeymoon cliches but it doesn't matter because it fits perfectly with the criteria we had decided need to be included in our honeymoon:
- A trip right after the wedding so that it feels like a real honeymoon and not some regular, albeit very nice, vacation? Check!
- Exotic, special and once in a lifetime? Check!
- Time to really relax and spend time together because there isn't a ton of stuff to run around and see and do? Check!
- But still has some interesting things to do like swim with sharks and rays and see the Gauguin museum and hike a little? Check!
- Warm? Check
South Pacific here we come!
