Five years ago I married my husband in a perfect wedding – it took place in my family church, surrounded by our closest family and friends. We went on to the most gorgeous barn for our reception and after a delicious wedding breakfast, we danced the night away. I know everyone describes their wedding as the most perfect day, but for us it really was. We had everything that we wanted and I really wouldn’t change a thing – even the weather was perfect, which for a November day was always going to be hit and miss (and there was a massive storm the following day and loads of roads were flooded, so we were pretty lucky!)
We then had our dream honeymoon in Mexico! It was somewhere we had always wanted to go so when we were planning our honeymoon it was first on the list.
From the lush beaches, to the crystal clear waters, to the adult only hotels, it was the perfect place for nearly 2 weeks of post wedding celebrations.
Which is why if I could pick anywhere to go and renew our wedding vows, I’d definitely return to Mexico. On our honeymoon there was actually a wedding taking place in our hotel and it was just perfect – on the beach, overlooking the calm sea in the most perfect setting. I would fly out my closest family and friends to help us celebrate and enjoy a cocktail or two with them!
I can imagine a beautiful ceremony on the beach, with me wearing a lovely fitted wedding dress, completely different to my big princess dress of our traditional wedding. It would be floaty and Grecian and gorgeous! The men would be in casual linen suits and everyone would be barefoot and beautiful! Our boys would have matching outfits and would look angelic with their bright blonde hair and cheeky smiles. We’d have a bbq on the beach followed by lots of drinking delicious cocktails created just for us and dancing the night away. We’d then be able to extend our celebrations by enjoying a wonderful holiday with our family and friends.
If you’ve had your perfect wedding, perfect honeymoon and perfect vow renewal, where do you go for a second honeymoon? For me it would have to be somewhere I wouldn’t consider going for a “normal” holiday. I was asking Craig if he could go anywhere, money no object, but it had to be somewhere out of the norm, where would he go? After suggesting places like AUstralia and the Caribbean, he suggested Phuket in Thailand. It’s not somewhere I would have even considered, but when I started looking at Phuket holidays with Destination2, I could see there was lots to offer. Amazing beaches, culture and a fantastic nightlife (perfect if we leave the kids at home!), you can’t really go wrong if you want something a bit different.
