      Well, we are on a tight budget, so since we are getting married at Dreams Resort in Cancun, that is where we are honeymooning. We will be there for a total of 8 days. I wish it could be longer, but it is what it is.

            Wow...we just came back from Paris and Flourence. They were great!!! I totally recommend a full week in Paris because there is just so much to see and do. You will have a great time!!! Flourence was cool, but I saw what I wanted to see in the 2 days we were there. None the less, what a stellar vacation!!!!

              We're getting married at and honeymooning in the same place. Staying for 2 weeks though. First week is wedding week and going to be too busy to really relax. 2nd week - everyone leaves and we get to enjoy Jamaica all by ourselves!

                We are staying at our wedding resort for 8 days (5 days after the wedding) so that will be our mini-honeymoon :)
                That sounds fun Ashli :)

                Ooooh ultra luxurious! :)

                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                We will be staying 7 or 8 nights (I can't remember! lol) at The Royal Plantation resort in Ocho Rios. Holy MOLY am I excited about this trip!! Talk about the ultimate in luxury. You literally don't need to move a finger while you're there - the butler carries everything for you (like your beach chair, etc.) and then when you need something while lounging on the beach you just wave a flag and they come bring you whatever you want (it's AI which is NICE). They also start your day on the beach off by bringing you fresh Mangosas (Mango juice & Champagne) and fresh fruit! And they have tea time every day since it has sort of a British theme. We got the extra luxurious HM suite with 2 bathrooms - the second one is a spa bathroom with french doors that open onto a breathtaking view of the ocean, and a chaise lounge to chill on, and a spa tub. Aaahhhhh.... oh geez, I can't think about it too much more because it just seems to wonderful to believe!!! We got an AMAZING deal - we would have never been able to afford a trip like this without that (or it would have been like 4 nights instead of 8!). I feel SO incredibly blessed. And I'm really looking forward to this.

                So this is the plan - stay 8 nights in PV @ the Marriot and then fly back to Dallas for 1 night, then back on the plane to JA for 8 nights! We'll be home just in time for my birthday so then we can celebrate again... that's gonna be a crazy month of celebrations I tell ya!

                  Jaime,
                  That place is amazing! You mentioned that you got an amazing deal. How did you find the deal? Where did you book it through?

                  Thanks,
                  Tiffany

                    Hi Tiffany!

                    Well, I started out with TA Jennifer (from BDW) and we threw some ideas around and then I just went searching on my own and happened to come across this place and the excellent deal! It is advertised right on their home page :)

                    We didn't get the free night because that promotion came up after we had already booked, however we did end up getting about 40% off total on our vacation

                    I would DEFINITELY recommend booking through TA Jennifer (I think you can click on the flashing banner on the top of the screen when her name comes up and that will give her you info...)

                    Hope that helps!

                      I LOVE the butler thing. You know the place in the Sex in the City movie? I know it was shot in Malibu, but I absolutely adored that private plunging pool thing.
