All the advice I got here made for a great honeymoon for oct 12th - 24th. In a nutshell here are my thoughts:
In a slightly bigger nutshell:
Food: enjoyed Passions and Madame Janettes, and had the greatest dining experience ever at Flying Fishbone. The view that night had sunset/moon/and lightning over Argentina all at the same time. Amazing
The Pega Pega bar next to Bucuti had great happy hour from 5 - 7, loved the atmosphere
Hotel: Stayed at the Bucuti, which was lovely. The beach was quieter than Palm beach (as i'm sure 98% of you know) and very romantic. So many honeymooners there, and watched 3 weddings on the beach.
The people: Actually found the locals to be pretty rude in general. I am really easygoing so it didn't bother me, but I felt like I was bothering them every time I purchased something in a store. I enjoyed the way they drive, especially found the way they park entertaining.
Beaches: Beautiful. Palm beach was pretty, but so crowded. The Bucuti beach was quiet, but a little rough for the wifes liking. (A wave attacked her the first day and threw her around a little, and she hasn't forgiven it yet). Baby beach was great. I had not snorkled before and it was great for a beginner.
Cats and dogs: Didn't like seeing so many, but you see that in a lot of countries.
entertainment: We went to Aruba because there wasn't a lot of forced entertainment, just relaxation. Bucuti does show a movie on the beach twice a week which was fun. "Pirates of the Caribbean" with the waves crashing and a lightning storm was pretty cool
Thank you all for your planning ideas.
