Honeymoon

Wedding planning has been fun and exciting, but I've become overwhelmed at times with the big decisions. Honeymoon was next on our list and Kyle and I were just not agreeing. I finally gave him control to book a trip...but with my 3 requirements.

1. Beach!
2. No to Mexico.
3. I didn't want to be on a plane for 20 hours (I'm not one that enjoys flying).


Kyle started looking into
St. Lucia and Hawaii, but they were too expensive. He soon realized all-inclusive resorts were probably our best bet. After numerous Trip Advisor reviews and Expedia searches still feeling unsatisfied, Kyle actually contacted a family friend who is a travel agent. She helped us narrow it down to about 4 places that fit our criteria and budget. Three out of the 4 resorts were in the Dominican Republic. We were unfamiliar with the gorgeous beaches, buy my travel agent described it as "Cancun before it was Cancun." It is not too crowded or too developed. So we narrowed it down and finally chose the The Majestic Elegance in Punta Cana. I thought travel agents were a bit outdated, but she was great! I would recommend looking into one if you are overwhelmed. Also, another benefit is the transportation to and from the airport.

The hotel is an all inclusive resort, which we have never experienced before. It is adults only with 5 restaurants, multiple bars, a spa, and pools for days! Kyle and I have traveled a lot together to Europe and big cities in the U.S, but never a resort or beach. I am thrilled to finally have a relaxing week with no tourist attractions and lines to wait in.



The best part....it's during the winter. We will be spending a week in 80 degree weather instead of 15 below :)
