They didn’t have groovy things like Trash The Dress or Day After Photos when we got married, but someone was nice enough to take a picture of us the day after our wedding when we landed on Vatulele for our honeymoon!

We did ours the weekend after. Just some silly photos with my MIL since she likes to take pics. I didn’t do my hair all that nice, and my dress looked poopy on me because I didn’t wear the undergarments, but honestly it was just for fun.

The last pic was my absolute favorite photo, even more than wedding pics. Perfect field of wheat. I was worried about the wind, which is why we didn’t get a lot of flattering photos, but this one was just perfect.

@Nona99:  Good lord, woman. You don’t do anything halfway. That looks absolutely amazing. Feel free to completely ignore me if I am being too nosy but how much would a week in Fiji cost? That is essentially my dream honeymoon location but I assumed it would not be affordable for us. Seeing those pictures makes me think I can start saving up more, lol.

@MrsPanda99:  You aren’t being nosey….the honeymoon including everything came out to about $12k…which is funny, because our wedding including everything cost $1k….my Dad offered us the honeymoon of a lifetime if we kept the wedding small and we leapt at the opportunity…it was worth every minute!

We did not pay the going rate for The Point, because the resort was under new management and we were the first honeymooning couple to arrive since their re-opening, they treated us to the suite and butler service as a gift….we were only on the island with one other couple, so we had the entire staff at our disposal…it was amazing.

@Nona99:  Wow! What a lucky girl…essentially a private island! Excuse me while I make my jealous face, lol. Our wedding will cost under $2,000 and I wish that my parents had made that deal with us, lol. We were hoping to spend around $10,000 on the honeymoon so perhaps it would be doable if we didn’t get the very best suite there is. I will have to cut back more on junk I don’t need to have a honeymoon like that 😀

@MrsPanda99:  I will tell you this, theres a phenomenon called “Fiji Time”, and it is worth doing literally anything you have to in order to experience it….I would imagine the rates at Vatulele have been decreased significantly since we were there, its worth a shot!  But make sure you use an agent to reserve day rooms and your puddle jump from the main island to the resort!

@Nona99:  We have decided to definitely use an agent. I won’t have time to be stressing about finding the best deals so I’d rather have someone else do it…someone who actually knows what they are talking about. I have a feeling that somewhere like Fiji would not be all inclusive? I am not sure what “Fiji Time” is but it sounds wonderful 😀

@MrsPanda99:  …actually, almost all of the resorts in Fiji are all inclusive, and if you look at what it costs to go to Hawaii, almost no all inclusive resorts, and compare it…they come out the be the same

@MrsPaperFlowers:  I took DHs tux and my dress to Hawaii with us for our Honeymoon, a few weeks after the wedding. I hired a photographer and MUA and we did the sunset on the beach pics and tons of others ones.  they are spectacular, which my actual wedding pics were not, and I had so much fun doing them with DH.  I also loved being able to wear the dress again bc its so pretty! I’m still trying to find more places to wear it…once i fit in it again 🙁
