Originally my fiance and I were planning on going on our honeymoon to St. John, but after looking at how much everything would cost (on top of paying for the wedding ourselves), we’ve decided that it just wouldn’t be feasible for us.
We’re looking for an alternate place to honeymoon now. We’ve thought of maybe going to Jamaica, since the airfare seems more affordable and the hotels are lower in price.
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? We’re looking for somewhere that it would not cost a ton to fly to (we’re in TX) and looking for somewhere where we could spend plenty of time on the beach. Thanks in advance! 🙂

the best and least expensive beach holidays are all-inclusives in domincan republic, mexico and cuba. have you checked out any of these spots? what is your budget? where will you be flying from? check out expedia or booking.com. i have seen some great deals there.

@SoCoBlue: There is a series of all inclusives called Couples that are all around Jamaica that are affordable and have great reviews!

Have you ever looked at Excellence Resorts? They have 3-4 different locations if I remember correctly. FI and I were looking at visiting the DR or Cancun with their all-inclusive packages.

We went on a family vacation a few years ago to punta cana in the dominican republic and it was amazing and I believe around 1000/person all inclusive with airfare. Not sure what your budget is but I think that’s pretty reasonable!

We are going to charolette nc. i know i know, no beach or anything exotic in anyway. but there are tons of things to do there, we are going to carowinds one day we both love roller coasters so yeah it works for us. we got a nice hotel and decided to pick a few restaraunts we just have to try and then keep our other meals as inexpensive as possible.
Plus it is not a far trip from where we live so we are saving big on travel expenses.
You could try south padre maybe? No comparison to the beautiful beaches you mentioned…but it’s a beach..
Good luck! =]

@dondiva: Oh my goodness! I’m pretty sure one of my best friends vacationed there and loved it and one of my former workers got married at one of their resorts in DR. I totally forgot about that place! I’ll need to check it out. Thanks
