    Hello Fellow Brides, I am in the midst of planning my destination wedding in Jamaica and was thinking about Honeymoon. Wondering if we should do one, or just extend our stay in Jamaica. I mean where do you celebrate a honeymoon after having your wedding at a honeymoon destination? Anyone have any plans for honeymoon?

      We are spending a week there with family and friends for our wedding. I wanted a honeymoon on top of it. We looked into staying a second week, (upgrading to a different resort) but the prices they wanted to extend our stay was insane (almost $6000). So we decided to have a honeymoon and spend that money to go somewhere new. We are coming home for a month, then heading to Italy for 3 weeks. We are having a Honeymoon Registry (instead of gifts) so that any guest that want to buy gifts for us, can just donate money to that.

       

      But yeah, I  wanted a honeymoon... I won't get any time alone with my Husband during that wedding week.

        i Did a destination wedding in Vegas- stayed there for 5 days. My hubby and I pretty much had zero alone time, which is how we wanted it though -- to spend with family and friends. we went home for a day to repack and then left to negril jamaica for a honeymoon for 8 days. It was a lot of traveling, and during it all we began to regret, but once we were there, omgoodness it was the best time of our lives! no regrets

          Ya i am torn, I am ok spending it with the family for the rest of the week, but also want to do something fun for a honeymoon without having to do too much traveling, but i don't think that will be the case!

            We are getting married Honeymooning at a different resort.  The day after the wedding we will take the shuttle to the other side of the island for a private honeymoon.  We figured we might as well take advantage of being on the island.

              That was what I wanted to do, but I couldn't talk the FI into it! LOL

              We will be getting to the resort on Tuesday, guests will be coming in on Wednesday, wedding will be Friday, guests will be leaving on Sunday and then we will stay at the resort for an additional week. So we will have time with our guests and we will also have time alone after the wedding.

                I'm doing the same as well. We will be at the resort 2 days before the wedding spending time with our guests and then afterwards we will be moving to an adults only AI. I have already scheduled our dinner on the beach and Couples massage. My FI was against it but somebody did it as a gift for us so it will be a surprise to him!  


                Its done.....you can read my planning journal or the review...long over due.

                  I wanted to give my guest the option of staying at the resort longer  (since they are already paying the airfare).  So some guest are staying a few days after the wedding.  We still wanted the privacy is a honeymoon so we opted to go to an adult only resort for the Honeymoon!
