Destination weddings are fun for everyone!

I have been to many weddings, most of which were a lot of fun and full of love.  My own was a winterland love fest in Lethbridge in the dead of March.  What we lacked in sunshine and warm weather we made up in revelry and dancing.  I honestly wouldn’t have had it any other way and, ten years later, the marriage has stuck.  However if I was to do it again, and just may (loving nod to my husband), I would seriously consider a destination wedding. A few years ago I was fortunate enough to have a friend oblige me in my travel lust by getting married in Mexico and while it may well be true that she chose a destination wedding for her own love of sunshine and good times, I felt like a winner none the less.

It all started with some margaritas at the airport with friends who were also attending the wedding.  We had parked all our children and pets with caring loved ones for the week and could let our hair down from day one.  Boarding the friendly West Jet flight that took us towards the sun we were greeted by none other than the bride and groom, and while I can’t be certain, I think they enjoyed our overly boisterous excitement of their impending nuptials. The week at the stunning Grand Palladium Vallarta was spend visiting with friends, lounging on the beautiful beach, dining on delicious food, partaking of free surfing lessons, drinking frosty beverages from one of many great bars, and swimming in one of the lovely pools.  The ceremony took place on a patio overlooking the ocean and the reception was right on the beach.  It was perfect in every way.  http://www.palladiumhotelgroup.com/en/Riviera-Nayarit/Palladium-Vallarta-Resort-Spa/

It was a reunion, a party, a vacation and a wedding all rolled into one sun drenched good time.  I would recommend to all you will be brides out there to think about booking yourself in for a whole week of love rather than just one day.  Your guests will love you for it!

Alone together

Have you ever felt the need to get away from it all?  To pack a suitcase, hop a plane and find your own little piece of heaven in the sand?  In a world of instant access to work and the constant distractions that swarm our modern existence, for many of us the need to escape has gotten even stronger.

Despite the white sand and tropical sun that avails itself at every modern all inclusive resort, the availability of alone time is often restricted to the hotel room itself.   Not wanting to miss out on all the revelry, sunbathing and cocktail drinking that is to be found at the resort I have felt conflicted between my desire to be pampered and catered to and my need to get the rest and relaxation I have come for.

If you have ever felt yourself caught between the need to be social and the desire to be alone there may be a resort build just for you.

Sandals Ochi Beach Resort is now offering first class get aways at the All Butler Villas and Great House Estate.  These beautiful suites will provide guests with the opportunity to have their own private escape with Sandals word class fun and amenities right outside their door.
