It all started with my own, underwhelming honeymoon. My brand-new husband and I were ready to kick back and relax in Jamaica (where I’m from), for what was supposed to be the most romantic, most important vacation of our lives. Boy, were we disappointed. Our room was dated … and dirty. There wasn’t even a restaurant at the resort — all of the rooms were condo-style, which meant they had their own kitchens. But the last thing I wanted to do on my honeymoon was cook for myself!
After two days at this hole-in-a-wall, my husband and I looked at each other and said, do we have to stay here? Instead of sticking around the resort, we decided to take lots of day-trips to visit family we had on the island. Hanging out with our family wasn’t exactly the romantic honeymoon we had imagined, but we just had to get away. So, how did we let this happen? Well, we were so busy planning our wedding, we didn’t start thinking about our honeymoon until a few weeks beforehand. And by that point, our budget was stretched too far, and we had little to work with. Plus — I did check out photos of the resort in the magazines and brochures, and I thought it looked so nice. But when we arrived, we realized we were duped. The photos looked nothing like the actual resort! My own honeymoon was such a huge “a ha” moment — this was no way to start a marriage.
From “disaster” to “dream romance travel planner” When I started my travel business 13 years ago, I had the story of my own disastrous honeymoon in mind. I wanted to make sure no other newlyweds had to experience what we had gone through. A honeymoon is so much more than a romantic vacation — it’s your first days together as husband and wife. It’s an intimate escape after the whirlwind of the wedding. It’s a chance to connect with one another and explore an exotic locale hand-in-hand. It’s your first steps into the future together — and I want it to be downright magical. Ready to experience the magic?
