Jump to last reply

*NOte; this is a repost from theknot.com honeymoon message board...A bride advised that I post this message here on this board too, due to the great responses and assistance she continuoulsy receives on here from many season travelers....So I would Like to formally say hello to everyone I am a new comer to the board! Thank you all in advance for your help


Our honeymoon Location changed and now we are stumped...

We originally had planned and was set to pay for our St. Lucia Sandals grande honeymoon but as I dug deeper into my research on the location and the resort, my excitement to go to St. Lucia depleted. I just found to many mix reviews for the resorts + food + entertainment on the Island and for the price tag associated w/ the trip we did not want to add another nail bitting decision to our wedding planning anxiety list

Also, we realized that St. Lucia is not a location to go to if you want a great night life .......but it is a great spot for relaxation/beautiful surrondings. However, the future husband and I would like to have a mixture of all of this (esp. night life entertainment) therefore we decided to back away from this Island (for now).

Now I am looking into other safe Islands to travel to during the month of October and November. I love the following locations: Barbados, Bermuda, and Aruba.

With the wedding closing in I desperately need some thorough advice, opinions, and leads on these location.

I am in the begining stages of researching on these locations and I am begining to feel pressured. I feel as if I am cutting it to close. I was hoping that enough "fodorer's" would reply to this posting with some leads which will ultimately cut some of the independant leg work for me.

FYI: here are some of the sites I have already hit for references: Honeymoon bio, travelchannel.com, reviewed a few reviews from trip advisory and did a search on the knot for postings on Barbados, Bermuda, and Aruba. I have found good info regarding Aruba thru theknot so far but very few on Barbados and Bermuda.
I would love to hear from first hand Barbados, Bermuda, and Aruba travelers too, Regarding: 1. On locations, 2. sites on the Island, 3. food diversity and options, 4. expectant total price of trip , 5. to go with Inclusive or not.

I do apologize about the length of this posting...pls don't disregard posting due to lenght ...this soon to be Honeymooner really needs help today

Thank you all for your assistance!
