Shequita’s and my destination wedding will take place at Azul Five Beach Resort in Playa del Carmen, Mexico in November. Like a few of our friends/fellow members, we’ve made this destination wedding into a DreamTrip, so that our guests will receive all-inclusive food and drink, and really feel like it’s a fabulous vacation for them too. We’ve never been there, but other members have taken DreamTrips there and loved it. The resort has nine pools and fourteen restaurants, so I’m sure the all-inclusive eating will not get boring! The vacation is four days/five nights. The wedding will take place one of those days, the pool party reception on another, and we might also plan an excursion. However, we’re not trying to plan things for all the days, so we can allow people (and ourselves) to have their own vacations.
We’ll be getting married on the beach gazebo with our Las Vegas pastor officiating. It’ll be a small gathering, including my mom, Shequita’s family, and about 70 of our friends. I’ve always wanted to get married on a beach. We’ll probably take our honeymoon on more beaches — in Greece, at a later point. We have the rings, but they’re a secret, so stay tuned for an after-wedding blog post. 😉
If you’re interested in going on your own DreamTrip, let me know!
