Is Your Wedding Trip Also Your Honeymoon?

Recommended Posts

I think FI and I are going to stay in Jamaica but move to a different resort. We're getting married at the Iberostar and staying there for 5 days (June 15-20th?) with our guests, then moving the Sunday after the wedding to Couples Swept Away in Negril and staying there for 6 or 7 days.

 

That's the plan for now, although it hasn't been booked yet. We thought about going somewhere totally new after the wedding, but it is more cost effective for us to stay in Jamaica. Plus we don't really want to deal with any more plane travel than we have to. We are planning on a big 1 year anniversary trip though:-) Greece or St.Lucia.

We're having our honeymoon at the same resort that we are getting married at. We're only staying 4 days longer after we get married. I was set on having a legal ceremony and the area we're getting married in Mexico we had to arrive at least 3 full business days early. We're supposed to move to South Africa for my FI's job in 4 weeks so that'll be our real honeymooon.

We are spending a total of 9 days in Hawaii. We will be staying six days on Kauai (3 of which will be after the wedding) with our friends and family and then flying to Oahu alone for the last three days. We figured that we're already somewhere beautiful so we mine as well stay and combine the wedding and honeymoon.

Its really interesting to read what everyone is doing!

We are going to go to a different, smaller hotel (maybe adults only) for another week. Just so it can be just the two of us. We love our friends and family but we want a week to oursleves. A lot of them will probably be staying at the wedding hotel for another week.

Personally for the honeymonn, I just want to relax and be waited on so we are probably going to a "fancier" hotel but still all inclusive.

We are flying to Puerto Vallarta 3 days before the wedding, getting married on Saturday, then staying at the same resort until the next Saturday for a total of 10 days. We're only doing a religious ceremony down there to avoid all of the legal hassles. This trip is our weddingmoon. In the summer we are planning a private cruise of the Greek Islands for our honeymoon. So totally excited!!!

We are staying at our wedding resort for 9 nights in Riviera Maya, so we'll be there 2 nights after everyone else leaves by ourselves. Then we're going over to Cozumel for 7 nights and then staying in Cancun our last night before we head home. So we'll be gone for a total of 17 nights, this is the longest vacation I've ever been on and I am so excited for everything!

We are staying at our wedding resort for our honeymoon, we were originally going to move to a smaller resort or villa but it just seemed like too much effort and extra expense.

 

All our guests are coming from the U.K and staying for 2 weeks holiday. We are staying on for an extra week just the two of us after everyone else leaves.

 

Three weeks in total, Im such a lucky girl... pinkie.gif

We're doing a 7 night Caribbean cruise with our family and friends and getting married while in port at St. Thomas. When our ship gets back to Miami, we're heading straight for the airport to go to Jamaica for a week. I know we will need some "real" alone time after spending a week with everybody. I can't wait! :)

We are staying for 2 weeks at our resort. First week with everyone and the second week alone. We are booked into the Royal Service section of the resort, but probably won't spend much time there the first week as we'll be hanging with everyone else. We'll enjoy the privacy and perks of the RS during our second week - "honeymoon week"!

We are having a weddingmoon also. We are staying a total of 11 days in Tulum, and some guest will be there from 4-15 days. So we are just planing on taking our "dream" honeymoon/vacation for our 1 yr anniversay. Either a meditearan cruise, trip to Greece, PR or ?. Either way, we are excited as we have never been to any of those places.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
