Just 1 week after meeting my fiance, he asked me to come to Spain to meet his family. He proposed 6 months later and I've never been happier! We knew from very early on that we would one day get married. Now we've been engaged for 8 months and we'll be getting married in May 2018. I'm here looking for advice in the lead up to the wedding, and hoping to contribute in return!

Happily married 🎉

Room with personal pool
Maegan , on January 29, 2018 at 9:00 PM

So, I’ve seen some hotels or resorts with a personal pool and hot tub either in the room or as a balcony! Anyone have any personal experiences? Or know of any places off hand with this set up?
