Is Your Wedding Trip Also Your Honeymoon?

Recommended Posts

We are getting married in Negril and after the wedding we are leaving for Ocho Rios for a honeymoon. We think we are going to stay at The Blue House in OR. They have a program where you can do some local volunteer work with the people in the community. (It is important to us to be able to give something back to the actual natives of the island.) We will stay a day or two after the wedding to hang out with our guests then we are off to have some "alone" time. Maybe start working on having a family....:)

Take a cruise? etc etc....

I'd love to hear your plans.

FI and I have not yet decided.
Hi Danyelle,

So after 6 days in Mexico with 30 of our closest friends and fam, we are coming home for 2 days, then we are off to our dream trip of Australia and New Zealand. We travel often as this is our passion. We are so excited. Yes, we will have lots of debt, but totally worth it! You can't take it with you. Good luck to you! smile72.gif

I guess we'll see what's up with funds, but I kinda like the idea of doing the wedding at say, RIU Mo'Bay and then going to Couples Swept Away or another adults-only Negril resort for the honeymoon....

On our wedding night, we're moving to a private cottage that is about 5 minutes away from the 2 private villas our families are staying at. We'll be there for three nights and then we're leaving St. Lucia to fly to Excellence Punta Cana for 10 nights. I'm so ready for it!

We stayed two weeks at the same resort - first week with 50 people, 2nd week with 10 stragglers. Originally we were going to switch resort, but finances dictated otherwise. So out honeymoon wasn't terribly romantic, although we had our moments. Mostly days spent with the fam, evenings spent alone for dinner, watching live music etc.

 

We are planning a 'real' honeymoon for our anniversary next January.

For our trip, we were planning on moving to a different resort for our honeymoon, but flights through points didn't really allow us for much flexibility.. so we are leaving the same day that all our guests are heading home.. then the last week in Nov we are gonna book our honeymoon somewhere different just for ease of using travel points...

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
