Any Brides Getting honeymooning seperately from DW location?

Recommended Posts

We are having a separate honeymoon about 6 months later.
That's nice do you have a location?
We're spending the whole week with family at our resort in Jamaica, flying back to Canada with them, handing off our extras, and then flying out the next day to Mexico for our honeymoon. We literally will only be in Canada for about 12 hours. :) The times all worked out great, just go to a hotel, sleep, and then off we go. AA-MAZING.
Yes..that is amazing. . I wish I could have two locations..
We are preparing to be gone for two weeks! We are remaining at the marriage website hotel for the first several weeks time and modifying hotels for the second week! The honeymoon vacation place is about 20 min away from the first one! Mix it up mid trip! And be alone.

That will be nice mixing things up mid trip..we were thinking of maybe doing that as well and save on airfare

We decided we didn't want to be around family and friends for our honeymoon so the day after our ceremony in Montego Bay we're heading to Negril for a week to ourselves.  This way we can 'get away' but it doesn't add significant cost to our trip. Also lets us see more of Jamaica which will be nice. I can't wait.

We figured hanging out with family and friends wouldn't be much of a honeymoon so we are going to Japan a year after we get married. We wanted to do 6 months but it's not in the budget. Now it will be an early (by 2 weeks) anniversary honeymoon thingy.

We will be at a family-friends resort for 6 nights for the wedding... and then we are heading to an adults-only more luxurious resort for a 12 night honeymoon in their presidential suite... Need to celebrate on our own too!!

We are staying a week at our wedding site and doing a separate honeymoon 6months to a year later. With our jobs it will be to hard to do a destination wedding and a honeymoon back to back. And we would rather spend as much time with our friend and family who traveled for our wedding in mexico.

My fiancee and I were having this conversation a while back.  We were questioning whether or not we should take an actual honeymoon since we are having a destination wedding.  Personally I think that if it's in our budget then we will take one, but if not we will try to save up for an awesome anniversary trip.  I think since we are getting married in Cuba our honeymoon should have a different setting.  We have been really interested in going to Thailand or maybe visiting Europe.  We also considered that after we return from our wedding we should do a small local honeymoon like going to Niagara Falls for a weekend or something.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
