Hi lovelies! I just wanted to share a little sneak peek with you today of my visit to Jamaica to bring you lots of ideas and inspiration on destination weddings. I traveled far and really had to rough it in a Romeo and Juliet Butler Suite at Sandals Resort to research wedding possibilities for you – tough work, I know! While I’m traveling back to California I wanted to share a little teaser of what’s to come. And you can find lots more on my instagram feed.

Isn’t it everyone’s fantasy to honeymoon in Paris and have a talented photographer take photos of you all around the city while you’re in deep in your newly-wedding bliss? So when this honeymoon shoot was sent my way, I literally squealed with joy. Dimitry and Olga, were married in their native Moscow, flew to Paris for their honeymoon, and Olivier Lalin of WeddingLight documented their visit. So grab a latte and a croissant, and enjoy a taste of Paris for a little while.
So, who’s ready to book a flight to Paris right now? My husband and I were trying so hard to go in May, because we spent the first day of our honeymoon there on our way to Italy and have wanted to go back ever since, but I don’t think it is in the cards for this year. Maybe our five year anniversary? We’ll see…
A little icy activity
Today’s post is from Andrew Marino, of sponsor and lovely vendor Honeymoon Pixie. I think this information is so helpful in today’s world of honeymoon registries, although some of this advice applies to all registries (like tip #1). So before you register, read this!
Wondering how to let your guests know about your honeymoon registry? Have you had to politely explain your registry to guests with questions? Honeymoon registry etiquette advice can be hard to find, and when you do, it can be conflicting. Here are the best pieces of advice for honeymoon registry etiquette. By following these five basic guidelines, you will be following the best etiquette practices and you’ll minimize the risk of offending anyone.
Never Advertise Your Honeymoon Registry in Your Wedding Invitations
Miss Manners says it is not polite to include your registry website information in your wedding invitations. Instead, you should rely on your bridal party and family members to help spread the word about your honeymoon registry, and you can also put the registry information in your bridal shower invitations. Most people will ask either you, someone in your bridal party, or a family member where you’re registered so they can get gift ideas. Word of mouth is often a great way to get the word out about your honeymoon registry.
Also, many honeymoon registry websites will provide registry announcement cards for your bridal shower invitations, will post to your Facebook wall the gifts you’ve received from your honeymoon registry, and will help you send emails to people on your guest list. These simple things are enough to make sure that most of your guests are aware of your honeymoon registry, and you don’t have to break any rules of etiquette to do it!
Who out there is considering or using a honeymoon registry?

We had a full gourmet kitchen with everything you needed to make, cook, bake, and blend anything you could want. Oh, and a farmhouse sink! And there was a laundry room IN our condo. So we didn’t have to pack a ton because we could wash whatever we needed. If you have kids, this is the only way to go. To be able to put your kid to bed in their own bedroom and then have an adult dinner and drink cocktails on your lanai and enjoy your vacation is so key. If you’re on your honeymoon (and especially if you’re on a budget), this place is perfect because you have privacy, you have luxury, but you can still cook meals at “home” instead of eating out every single meal. I get so sick of eating out on vacation, don’t you?
