    I am having a cruise wedding. The wedding will be on the day of departure in Miami, FL. The cruise is a 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise and will be our honeymoon, but some of our friends and family will be cruising with us. So, we will probably take an anniversary trip a year later by ourselves.

      We are getting married at Sandos Playacar Beach resort and then planning on moving to another resort for our honeymoon. The reason being, is most people I have spoken to say that two weeks at one resort is sometimes a little much. That they got bored of the resort and food. It was almost better doing 10 day vs 14. So we decided to go to another resort as I dont want to have a 10 day stay - I want all 14! lol
      If anyone has any ideas of where we should stay for our honeymoon that isnt too expensive I would love to here from you!

        We are spending 5 nights at GPLH for the wedding and then switching to The Caves for 4 nights. This could change we have not booked our travel yet. It is our current plan.

            We are getting married at Breezes and staying there for 5 nights...two days after our wedding we are leaving and going to Couples San Souci for an addtl 5 nights. I think we get the best of both worlds. We get to spend time with our friends and family and have our own private time. We also get to experience two totally different types of resorts

              FI and I are going to a different resort 30 minutes south for our honeymoon. It's an adult-only resort that we've been to before and we loved it.

              Only a couple family/friends know which one it is. I don't want anyone to kill the honeymoon buzz!!

                we are staying at beaches turks and caicos for 11 days total. I think that was the best way to go for us! All inclusive luxury for 11 days. Cant beat it. We will be there for 5 days before our wedding, wedding day, and then 5 days after.

                Some of our guests will be there the week of our honeymoon but it doesnt really bother us. We will spend alone time and have planned some couple only excursions. But we live across the country from my entire family and all of my friends (and now his friends as well) so I dont mind one bit spending time with them! I wasnt about to tell them when they could and could not vacation. They are traveling a long way to celebrate our wedding with us. :)

                  We are doing one week at one resort with all of our guests, then staying an extra week by ourselves at a more upscale, adults-only resort. :)

                    We will be staying the whole first week with our family and friends at the resort, and then moving to the adults only section for a week of honeymoon. I tactfully suggested to FI's best man and his girlfriend that if they would like to stay two weeks, to maybe come the week before for their own alone time. They had no problems with that.n Honeymoon saved!

                      We are staying at the same hotel, however, we'll still be will family. Christmas is the week we are going back home. Believe it or not, when we leave Cabo, we're going in different directions. My FI is headed to LA and to Phoenix to visit his kids for Christmas and I'll be heading back to Texas to spend Christmas with my kids and family. I know it sounds strange, but we're older and have adult kids with grandkids in different states. We do this every year. Then, we will meet back up after Christmas and spend the whole week together.
