Q: We want to honeymoon in French Polynesia, but it’s too expensive. Suggestions?

Consider Hawaii as a closer, less costly alternative. Or look into St. Lucia, which is closer, more affordable and, geographically, somewhat like French Polynesia too, with its lush green mountains and white-sand beaches. When booking your trip, make sure to tell your travel agent and resort that you’re honeymooning, as you may be entitled to perks like free room upgrades. If you’re still stuck on French Polynesia, ask for cash in lieu of wedding gifts to help pay your way.
