It’s Wedding Wednesday and as usual, I’m linking up with Jordon, Meredith and for the first time Mary. One of the first questions people ask after you get engaged is “where are you going on your honeymoon?” To be honest, K and I knew pretty early on that we’d not be taking an immediate trip. We wanted time to save up for a honeymoon (after spending a lot of $$ on the wedding) and I’m also in the process of searching for a new job and wasn’t sure where’d I be in the job search process, which made it difficult to plan a vacation. So instead of planning a full fledged honeymoon right after the wedding, we’re doing things a bit differently!
K and I will be spending two nights at this beautiful Kimpton hotel in Old Town Alexandria right after the wedding (Sunday and Monday nights). Due to my frequent work travel (and loyalty to Kimpton — I LOVE them!), I had two free nights so we’ll be using them to relax after the wedding weekend. Then we will take a longer honeymoon later this fall.
So where are we going to go when we do take our honeymoon? Well, we haven’t solidified that yet, but I require a few things:
- A beach
- A cocktail
- A glorious bed
- A cozy chair on said beach so I can read / nap / drink said cocktail in peace
As you see, I’m not too picky. We will probably do an all-inclusive or a cruise. I’d love to hear where you went for your honeymoon or any tips you have. We’ll also most likely be using a AAA planner because of the great deals they can get.
Weigh in — where’d you go for your honeymoon?
