The Joys of Wedding Planning: My top 3 (honeymoon) picks

May 15, 2013


Were almost there! I can count down the number of days on my hands at this point!!! I cannot wait! It’s been one heck of a year for us, full of some really amazing times and some really tough times as well, and after this wedding is all said and done…WE ARE GOING ON VACATION!

We both agree we have never needed a getaway as badly as we need one right now. We will be spending one lazy week in Isla Mujeres, Mexico and could not be more excited! It was an easy choice for us, since we both love Mexico and we know a great resort we’ve been to before. All we are really looking for is an amazing beach and a cold (alcoholic) beverage and this place will fit the bill splendidly  There are countless lovely honeymoon spots on this beautiful planet we live on. Here is a list of some other options we explored.

Big Sur, California
This is next on our travel list! Hiking in the redwood forest, miles and miles of scenic Californian coastline, bonfires in the woods! Obsessed.

Charleston, South Carolina

We have been saying for the 5 years we’ve been together “we gotta go to Charlestown!”. Fresh seafood, southern hospitality, warm breezy summer nights, charm for days…what more could you ask for!


Costa Rica
The ONLY reason we didn’t go here for our honeymoon was because we were just there last year and LOVED it and decided to do something different. From the adventurous jungle to the gorgeous beaches there is so much to love about Costa Rica. It’s a great place to enjoy hiking, coffee plantations, eco tours or just relax by the beach  Did I mention they have more monkeys then people?!
