    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....:)

      We are getting married in Nuevo Vallarta and then flying to the Riviera Maya for our honeymoon...

      Best of luck with your choice.

        Will you stay longer at same hotel?
        Go to diff hotel on same island?
        Fly to new location all together?
        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!

            We are staying at the same hotel, the first week will be with family and friends and then hopefully the 2nd week we will be by ourselves

              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...
