We are thinking of getting Married in January 2010 and were wondering what Island destinations you'd recommend for that time of year? I know a lot of tropical places will be in their wet season during that time so looking for somewhere that will be warm and sunny!

We need to get married during the school holidays (I am a teacher) and the 6 week summer holiday break seems to be the best time.

I agree with Gezz. Wherever you go you will have a good time regardless of the weather. I was in Bali and Brunei in January this year and the weather was pretty good. Some little showers, but when it rains on the islands it often doesn't last for long.
It is still very hot.

I just went to Fiji a month ago and even though it was in October nearly everyday was overcast.

I think you will just have to chose a place that you want to go to and hope the weather is nice!

PS I went to Thailand in August last year and the weather was lovely, but a few showers.

although it's their 'wet' season, its like a rainy day in Sydney or Melb... or any other urban city... which is miserable! it is still usually humid and hot, rains a little bit, stops, sun comes out and its great!

when we were in fiji, it rained a bit but some nights it was fun..because we would race back to our room and it would be torrential rains... thunder, lightning... ( i like storms when i am with fh though)

Don't know your budget but have you considered hawaii???
its their winter but not cold..


ps we are getting married in january 2010 too! as its the only time we can do it as well...and were wanting to do an island honeymoon... hamilton is the last place we looked at, but we have a while to choose!!

We too were in the same situation. We got married Feb 2nd and honeymooned in the Maldives and it was perfect weather there.

We have also been to Thailand and Malaysia over January and it is great weather in both places at that time (Phuket and Sabah)Not all places in those countries will be good so you will need to check.

Any questions let me know. You will have a ball anywhere you decide to visit smile.gif

We got married last February but we're only just about to go on our 'proper' honeymoon due to work and study commitments.

We've opted to go to Hawaii, 5 days in Honolulu and 5 days in Maui. It's winter in Hawaii, but the climate seems fairly warm and pleasant year round.

We also looked at Phuket, as it's currently their dry season, but due to recent airport closures and instability in Thailand decided against it.

It's also the dry season in the Maldives, which would have been my preferred option, but we decided to go somewhere we could use our frequent flyers.

I am a teacher and I got married in Oct holidays and honeymooned in Brampton Island - that was gorgeous.

I have been to Bali in January - hated it - just tooo hot for me personally.

Got engaged in Hawaii and have been there in January and the weather is divine - just gorgeous.

January is also meant to be great weather for the maldives and for mauritius.

Wherever you go you will have a fantastic time
