Where oh where to go?

July 26th, 2011 by     

So Apricot Dude and I recently began our exploration into one of the best parts of wedding planning: HONEYMOON RESEARCH!!!!! I must say, I’m ready to just fast forward to June 10th next year and be on a beach. Sigh…………

Back to reality—call us crazy but we initially wanted to go to Tahiti! I’ve have heard nothing but incredible things about the area and thought that it would truly be a once in a lifetime trip. Well, after much research I realized that it might take up our once in a lifetime budget as well. Plane tickets alone were outrageous and we decided that we would be a bit more conservative in our spending. Another sigh….

So we have been looking in the Caribbean, Punta Cana and the Bahamas especially. I’m intrigued by Antigua just for its more private beaches and less of a popularity. The Sandals properties have been especially appealing. I have heard awesome things from friends who have went as well as online reviews. From the looks of it, the properties are clean, offer friendly service, private and just an overall great experience. We are leaning towards the newest Sandals, their Emerald Bay property in the Bahamas.

I’m enjoying the research but finding that this decision is tough! We have turned to a travel agent for some help….maybe they can sneak us on a flight to Tahiti! I’ll keep you posted on our decision.

What are your thoughts on all-inclusive resorts? Worth it?
