My fiance and I are getting married August 29th in Washington DC, we've been trying to figure out where to go for a honeymoon. Ideally, we want somewhere close where we can just lie around on a beach doing nothing and relaxing. I went to Bermuda once about 11 years ago and loved it, so it strikes me as the ideal place to go (very close, beautiful beaches).
However, our honeymoon would be the first week in September, which is prime hurricane season. With hurricanes getting worse (now hearing they're forming off the east coast), is it really worth the risk to go and hope a hurricane doesn't hit us? Or if it does, to hope it doesn't hit badly?
I'm aware that some travel companies and hotels/airlines will offer refunds if your travel dates coincide with a hurricane, but I'm not sure if we also want to risk canceling our honeymoon (which would be a real bummer).
What do you guys think?
