Suggestions for a Turquoise Honeymoon Destination?

Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico

Due to the fact that we’re getting married on a tropical island, we won’t be doing a honeymoon right away. Technically, our dream turquoise wedding is a wedding and honeymoon in one; however, we’d still like to go on a honeymoon at some point after the wedding. At this point, we’re hoping to depart to a turquoise destination for some relaxing in the sun during our first 6 months of marriage.

After looking at what feels like every venue on each island, we finally agreed on the Dominican Republic for our turquoise inspired beach wedding. Continue reading
