  • Honeymoon Ideas Needed!

    Ok yall. My fiance wants to go to Vegas for our honeymoon. Im not totally against it, but Im looking for some place more romantic. I live in the midwest and Ive only seen the ocean once.

    Our thoughts for Vegas are to take some time and do things outside of Vegas like go to the Grand Canyon, and to take a day or two and visit a friend of his in LA.

    I dont think its a bad idea. I just think theres gotta be something more fun and relaxing. I dont have any restrictions. Wedding is in late September. Im thinking somewhere sunny and warm with enough to do and not be bored, but not so much that we forget that its a honeymoon. We work opposite schedules, and my New Years resolution is to have more sex . I plan on my honeymoon to be some place romantic yet fun.

    Any ideas yall?

    Las Vegas can be whatever you want it to be--romantic, fast paced, slow and relaxing, etc--because there is so much to do and see it leaves what to do and how fast to do it completely up to the traveler.

    Beach-wise--in September the ocean is starting to cool down so if your plans want to include swimming and ocean activities you're going to have to travel pretty far south, perhaps all the way to Florida, or into the Carribbean to enjoy the water. (I live in Va Beach and September is really pushing the ocean temps). Of course, Florida and the Carribbean are always good choices .

    The good thing is that you stlll have a few months to decide on a location to honeymoon--plenty of time to investigate places and get feedback..

    Have fun planning!

      You might enjoy Northern California. You can spend some time on the ocean down in romantic Carmel (plus visit Monterey Bay Aquarium), visit San Francisco, and spend some time in Napa wine country. I know that the Napa wine suggestion might seem weird for an IC patient, but it is a beautiful area with many romantic attractions. It is the only rural area that I know of where you can drive through beautiful countryside knowing that you are only minutes from a bathroom. If you can drive a little further, Lake Tahoe is recommended also. Lake Tahoe also has many of the Las Vegas attractions (casinos, shows, night life).

        I like the Napa suggestion. I can actually drink wine...in moderation. Let me ask other half about that one. I really appreciate yalls help!

          Rose Petals

          If you do happen to find that you have a day to spend in your room, I have a cute idea. I can't go out much, so on our 5 year anniversary we had a room with a Hot Tub and fireplace. I bought one red and one cream colored rose and had the petals taken off and put into a bag. I took a cooler along and kept the petals cool until we were ready to use them. I placed them on the bed and along the sides of the hot tub with tea lights all around. We had the fireplace going and sat in the hot tub with the candles all around us. It was wonderful and we will never forget it! I saved the rose petals from that trip and dried them out for later use in a shadow box.

          I don't know if that is your kind of thing. I just wanted to throw out a suggestion.

          Most of my Journaling now is currently on Facebook. These are old and my ICN Patient story is very old and outdated.

            We had a wonderful honeymoon in Pigeon Forge Tennessee! We got a cabin at Hidden Mountain Resorts and loved it!
            There are lots of shows and Dollywood there.
            A friend and her new husband honeymooned on a DisneyCruise and loved.
            Another friend honeymooned at Disney and loved it as well.
            Good luck and God Bless,

              I got married in Grand Cayman in December, 2005, and it was truly amazing! The entire island is only 26 miles wide. They do speak english there so you don't have to worry about communicating. Their whole lifestyle is super laid back and stress-free. If you do go, there is the "tourist" side of the island and then the other side where there are only a couple of resorts...it's a little more quiet over there.
              There is fantastic snorkeling out there, we could walk right out of our hotel sliding glass door onto the beach and into the water...it was amazing.
              I'd be happy to send you some pics of the island, if you are interested, just PM me.
              Also, if you end up choosing Vegas, I go there quite frequently, so I can give you all kinds of tips and places...plus I have a load of VIP tickets for different clubs and stuff.

                I have been to Vegas about 8 times in the last 10 years. Although it a place I like to go it is not very couple oriented. You probably find that you are apart more then together. It takes about 6 hours to get from Vegas to the Grand Canyon. Once there you would spend about 2 hours or so. Most tours require you to stay overnight. They have a lodge at the base of the canyon! It might require you to hike or take a mule which take a day down and back up each. When I was there they stopped the helicopter rides because they were crashing into the side of the canyon. I guess the canyon causes a spiral airflow that helicopters get stuck in. You can fly into LA and take the shuttle plane to vegas in 45 minutes or so. Sorry if I sound negative but both places are just great vacations spots but I don't think very romantic. We just booked our honeymoon last month. We decided to go to Italy. We had the benefit of saving for it for it in advance. I can't wait to go!!! Good luck and remember you only get married once pick a place that you can afford and that you will remember a lifetime.
