Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.
For those who may not know, I just recently got back from my honeymoon; so, it’s been quite a while since I’ve sat down and written a post for you guys. I hope you all enjoyed the working girl mini-series last week while I was away! I sure had fun writing those posts for you all and I received so many wonderful comments and reactions to them. You make me feel so loved! 🙂
Speaking of love, I wanted to start kicking off all of my honeymoon posts today with a lovey post about our accommodations. (You know I wouldn’t visit a beautiful place and not take excessive amounts of pictures!) We went down to Jamaica to stay at one of Sandal’s gorgeous resorts, South Coast aka Whitehouse. We had an amazing time and the views were amazing no matter where you looked. More on that later, I wanted to dedicate this post to those brides to be out there researching various honeymoon locations. I knew we were going to have an amazing time; but, after visiting, I can officially say that Sandal’s knows how to treat their honeymooners right!
Upon arrival, Sandal’s makes sure you feel welcome and get a jump start on your relaxation (with help of champagne). Everyone gets a glass while you check in; but, after settling into our suite, a lovely butler brought a complimentary bottle of champagne and champagne flutes to our room for us to enjoy at our leisure. And enjoy we did! It’s hard not to enjoy while looking out at an amazing view! Later in the week, they left us a cute little package with a handwritten note from the manager congratulating us on our honeymoon, a sweet little door sign, and a form for a complimentary room service breakfast. (Which was much needed on a rainy morning towards the end of the trip!) It was such a sweet little gift and the handwritten note definitely meant a lot!
For those honeymooners that want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the Caribbean, I highly recommend the month of May as it seemed to be more deserted than I had anticipated. It made for a perfectly intimate honeymoon without being completely isolated. After going to an all-inclusive resort, I don’t see us traveling any other way ever again. It was so nice to just walk around without worrying about cost or if we brought enough cash with us. It was such a great time and I highly recommend Sandal’s Whitehouse to all looking for a nice getaway! Even if you think it’s going to be too much money, I recommend contacting a good travel agent in your area and have them look into it. I’ll leave a link here for a past post explaining the benefits of booking through a travel agent. You won’t want to miss it! I think you’ll be surprised at the kind of rates they can get you.

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer
Today I wanted to talk about the fun stuff that comes after the wedding, the honeymoon! Planning your wedding is hard enough. Don’t add another stressor by planning your honeymoon too. Relying on a travel agent will relieve your stress and will also get you amazing deals. Here’s my main reasons I highly recommend getting a travel agent.
They can plan your whole trip within the time it’s going to take you to find decent airfare pricing. This is also a great benefit for procrastinating brides. 😉
They’ll find you the best rates for airfare and your stay. I’m not kidding when I say that our travel agent got our trip to cost literally half as much than when I was just looking on my own. This fact alone makes it a homerun in my book!
They’re free to get you the best deals? No contest.
Packaging your flights and your stay not only helps the price go down but it also makes life much easier. Having your entire itinerary planned out by someone else will enable you to enjoy your vacation all the more!
You can know exactly where you’d like to go or just know you want a beach (like I said to our travel agent) and they will pair you up with the best place for you. They are very familiar with the resorts that they send you to so you can trust that you’re getting your dream honeymoon no problem!
So, go ahead and Google some great travel agents in your area and forget about trying to take on all that planning yourself! Enjoy your wedding planning and let someone else work out your honeymoon details. Let me know your dream honeymoon destination in the comments below!
