- Wedding: March 2013
I am new to the Wedding Bee website and am so sad because I could have been enjoying the site the past 10 months of my engagement On a much happier note though, I have been as my friends would put it “too planned” and was very organized and thought of everything when it came to the wedding planning. The venue and date was booked within a week of being engaged. My wedding party and I went shopping the day of the engagement party and not only did I fall in love with MY dress and purchase it, the girls (all 7 of them) agreed on a dress and purchased their dresses as well. EVERYTHING has fallen into place so easily for this wedding for us. My FI and I haven’t argued over anything (I SWEAR!). We bought our wedding bands. We have disagreed over a few minor things, but we have both compromised and made decisions we are both happy with. I am very happy that he is wanting to be so involved with the planning and loves to see what I am ordering and hear about things every now and then (I do NOT talk about wedding all day every day, that would just be nuts to listen to for over a year).
So here it is 4 months before our wedding and I am sitting here reading the posts on this site thinking I have figured it all out, and then it hits me, we have STILL not decided on a honeymoon destination yet! AT ALL! We aren’t going on the honeymoon until June because I am a teacher and don’t want to take time off. The wedding is on my spring break (I am off the week BEFORE the wedding already). So here’s what WE BOTH want in our destination please give some advice:
-We’ve been to Hawaii. We want to go somewhere we’ve both never been. Outside of the US
-We are both certified SCUBA Divers. So Somewhere where the SCIBA diving is amazing!
-I don’t fancy a super long plane ride……I don’t mind traveling. But spending days on a plane just doesn’t sound like a great honeymoon to me?
-We aren’t big drinkers. But having a pina colada on the beach would be great.
-FI says NO to anywhere is Mexico (Bad experience there as a child?)
-We can rent a car. We want it to be SAFE
-Places we are considering, Jamaica, Bahamas, St. Lucia, St. Thomas, Barbados,Cayman Islands…Add onto these please…
-Definitely HAS to be somehere Tropic obviously
-I am NOT a fish eater but HE is….soooooo ya needs to have other food options
– We are adventurous…Love to zipline, bike ride, 4 wheel, things like that. Not really a hiker per say but I would try it if it was pretty…..
Ok so I hope I didn’t bore anyone. This topic has been weighing heavily on our minds for MONTHS because 1) We figure it will most likely be our LAST trip just the 2 of us because we HOPE to come back and start a family right away (been together 5 years We are ready) and 2) we want to go for 10 days to 2 weeks depending on how much time FI has off work.
All advice and tips appreciated!!!
