I'm bringing you TWO, count it 1-2, wedding related posts this week. WIN.
Although this one is far more exciting (for me) in actuality, I usually prefer unveiling DIY's. That being said, M and I have officially put a deposit on our honeymoon!
For 6 days, we'll be hanging out in....
Playa del Carmen, Mexico!
I'm pretty jazzed, guys. I've never been to Mexico. I've most certainly never been to an all inclusive resort! We weren't sure that it'd be a possibility for us, until Jess told us about her awesome travel agent, and the deal they got. I hadn't considered using a travel agent. I had 2 thoughts about it,
1) Travel agents are for people with money (wrong.)
2) How hard it is to find a resort? I can totally handle this myself (wrong.)
I'd never been to Mexico and I was getting tons of suggestions and advice from a lot of well meaning people about where we should go/shouldn't go, what's safe/not safe, and I had no idea what to go off. SO, we emailed the travel agent. For $20 a person ($40 total) we gave her our requirements: warm, safe, all inclusive, flights included, for under $X,XXX. She hit the ball outta the park with her first suggestion. Even better, she was able to warn us about a few other locations we'd considered, because it was the rainy season there. These were things that I'd have had no idea about, so it helped to hear it from someone who has been there. Speaking of: this travel agent didn't recommend any resort that she hadn't personally been to.
Aaannnnddd she did GOOD:
You can find me on one of those beach beds.
With a daiquiri in hand.
Not that I'm not excited to get married, and for the wedding, but locking in the honeymoon feels like it's a nice book-end to this whole great experience. Cannot wait. :)
