Is Your Wedding Trip Also Your Honeymoon?

Recommended Posts

Our wedding was in Italy and because it was an expensive trip, it was also our honeymoon. We had a small wedding with just close friends and family we asked those that wanted to stay, to honeymoon with us. We didn't mind that because they traveled a long distance for us. Plus, we were in separate hotels but was walking distance. We figured we have the rest of our lives to spend time with each other so what is a week with close friends and family. It was good times!

We're staying at the Aventura cove Palace (family side) for the first 3 days before the wedding and moving over to the Spa side (adults only) the night of the wedding. We're staying a total of 10 days, 7 after the wedding and 3 before. I cant wait!

We're staying in the Royal Service section of our hotel for 7 days and 8 nights total. We thought we would have more privacy but most of our guests have also opted to stay in RS. Oh well, we're thinking about taking a road trip when we get back home to Niagara Falls. My FI was a merchant marine and has been all over the world. There aren't many places we haven't both been to that are in driving distance so Niagara Falls it is!

We were, but due to our upcoming schedules through the remainder of the year, we will now just go early next year. When we were going to go right into the honeymoon, we were not going to stay in the DR anyway, so now we need to decide which of the many choices we want to go with.

We're doing it all together. Might switch hotels, but it depends on how much time we get to stay. We just want to make sure people don't try to intrude on our honeymoon time after the wedding.

We are staying at our resort for several more days. We are getting married on a Friday, our guests are leaving Sunday, and we will stay until Wednesday. We thought about going somewhere else, but we would really love to hang out with our friends and family for the rest of the weekend and then just relax when they leave.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
