Has anyone booked their honeymoon yet or have any ideas on where you want to go? What are/were your must haves?!
We want to book ASAP! I’m messaging with a travel agent now. We’re looking at Mexico or the Dominican Republic right now. All-inclusive is a must for us! Preferably adults only, but it wouldn’t be a deal breaker if the price was right. We would like to stay under $4,000 total!

Check out Excellence Playa Mujeres, and Excellence Riviera Cancun! It’s got amazing reviews (I’ve been to Riviera Cancun and LOVED it, and am going to Playa Mujeres this year).
Secrets Maroma also gets amazing reviews.

I am going to the Dominican Republic in February. Although we just got married, we wanted to go somewhere warm when it was freezing here. I have heard good things about the DR!
We’re staying at the Majestic Elegance for 7 nights (leave Sunday morning, come back the following Sunday night). It’s All-Inclusive, but not adults only. However, they have the “Elegance Club” that is adults-only – and that’s where we are staying. Most reviews have said that thekids are minimal, and usually not a problem. We paid for a little over $4K.

gcwoolwedding: For family reasons it turns out we can’t have any friends at our wedding 🙁 So our wedding itself will be super tiny, family only, and in a backyard.
We still want to celebrate with friends so we decided to have a friends getaway instead of a honeymoon. We’re renting a big house in upstate new york and inviting all our closest friends for a long weekend on a lake. About 10 people are invited. We’ll swim, party, bbq, and at their request I’m going to put my wedding dress on for them! Which is pretty cute 🙂
Then we’re taking the money from our wedding and going to Iceland on our one year married anniversary. 🙂 which is what we were originally going to do for our honeymoon.

gcwoolwedding: I’ll second Excellence Playa Mujeres – we had the exact same guidelines as you (Mexico or DR, under $4000) and ended up booking there and I couldn’t be more excited. We did A LOT of research and I’m fully convinced that this place will be amazing, relaxing, and a whole lotta bang for your buck.

Thank you for the suggestions! We ended up going with the new Secrets Playa Mujeres!! We went a little over budget, but we felt it was worth it! It opened today so I’m pumped to see reviews, lol!
