    We want to Japan for our Honeymoon for 12 days. Been back 2 more times and planning another trip back in March.


  2. M:

    oopps, we went, not, we want...lol


  3. frankie:

    I've been to Paris. If I wanted to see constipated people I'd go to the metamucil aisle at Walmart. Blech. Hahahaha!

    Honeymoon locations:

    For the US:
    1. San Francisco. It's quite romantic to walk around the city, with all the different neighborhoods, restaurants and such. It's also cold, so it forces your wife/husband to stay close! From there Santa Cruz, Napa, Carmel and even Reno (if you like to get your game on) are all within driving distance. By comparison LA has too much traffic, gang violence and the Clippers!
    2. Portland. Very walkable and clean city with all the bridges and the rivers. Pearl district has been revitalized, Saburo's has the best sushi on the west coast for the price, the international rose garden, and bomb diggity hikes within 40 minutes of downtown. If you go during the summer, the sun stays up unil 10 pm.
    3. NYC. It has everything you want in a honeymoon...and everything you don't want, whichever you prefer!

    Outside of US:
    4. Switzerland. Boooootiful, period.
    5. Japan! Because nothing says love like having to ask your wife how to operate the toilet.

    i better not answer this survey . . . i mean, i don't even have a dude to even consider where i want to get married, let alone where i want to honeymoon (violins playing!) :P

    reminds me of my sister - when we were making the center pieces for her wedding a few months ago, she asks me: "so, what color scheme are you going to have at your wedding?!" i was like - "WTF?! i don't even have a BF and you want to know what colors i'm going to have at my wedding?!"

    you can just use my "dream vacations" list for this one!!


  5. Bre:

    We got married in South Lake Tahoe, California. It was beautiful and I would highly recommend it. We honeymooned in Victoria, Canada. Again, very beautiful and it was not that expensive. Also, there are things to do there but not too much so we were able to sightsee (we went killer whale watching and to Bouchart Gardens) but could also rest up from the wedding.

    Of course, my first choice would be Hawaii but most of my family would not have been able to come so we had to pick a place they could drive to.


  6. Buzzbunny:

    My honeymoon was to San Francisco and Napa, including hot-air ballooning, which was so much fun!

    Can't wait to tweet about your wedding tomorrow!


  7. Scott:

    I got married on a beach in Hawaii and honeymooned in New York City.
    Paris is the most beautiful city I've ever been to. I've been there 7 times and would consider living there someday if I get very rich. Hmm, doubt that will happen, though.


  8. Dave:

    I say the best place for a honeymoon would be Japan. I would also have to say it would be a great idea if you took the person doing the banzai toast with you because he's wishing you so much luck and happiness, you definitely would want to return the favor to him.

    Just a thought
    Make sure you cry at your wedding, let dem tears flow like a real man. I'll be sure to have a tissue for you to wipe dem tears off your face and off my face.


  9. Ynaku:

    Best place to Honeymoon? Behind closed doors :lol:

    Congrats and welcome to the Chain and Ball Brotherhood j/k After tomorrow, you be da man!!! Have fun and enjoy the moment. It's your special day.

    BANZAI! BANZAI!! BANZAI!!!!!!!


  10. snow:

    I didn't want to go someplace far for our honeymoon - I've seen couples leave for their honeymoon who were exhausted from their wedding and were then tired during their travels, as well! Ooops, hope you two are not too tired!! Anyway, though I went to the Big Island (Waikoloa) for only a short stay due to work, it was nice and relaxing! I just wanted to enjoy the time with my new hubbie.

    Other places I think would be good - San Francisco, New York, Disneyland (fun!)!

    Hope you're having a great wedding day!!!


  11. bB:

    spent my honeymoon in japan

    nothing better than eating, drinking beverages, picking up car parts and going to tokyo disneyland.

    oh yeah, spending time with the wife. lol.

    Woah, contrary to what frankie said above, it sounds like Paris is the place to be. I do want to go there one day!

    LOL! Shucks, I only read this now. If I read this before we would've taken you Dave! Haha! Nah! Thanks for the awesome job with the banzai "Best Friend!" ;)
