Exciting day here We booked our honeymoon! I am SO SO SO excited. We're going to spend 3 days in Dubai followed by 7 days in the Maldives.

If anyone has suggestions for either venue, please let me know! We actually have good friends who live in Dubai and are coming for our wedding, so we're going to fly back with them and have some help navigating the city before we head off for alone time in the Maldives. I can't wait!!! Is it terrible that I just want to skip to the honeymoon?

In Dubai, we're staying at the Burj Al Arab (first picture) and at The W in the Maldives (2nd).

    I love how the Burj Al Arab looks like a sailboat! Sounds like you guys will have a fantastic time.

    Looks amazing! We looked at the Maldives but couldn't justify spending so much on airfare since we're paying for our own wedding. One day we'll get there.

    Nice! Are those overwater bungalows in the Maldives? Im considering going there for my honeymoon too. If I recall, you are flying from NYC right? How much is the trip if you mind sharing?

    @M&M- Yes they're overwater bungalows!!

    We're flying from NYC (JFK, to be exact) with Emirates. This is the breakdown:

    JFK to Dubai

    Dubai to the Maldives

    Then the Maldives back to New York (with a short layover in Dubai).

    Technically, it's three separate flights since on the way they're we're staying in Dubai for a few days. We paid about 1400.00 for each of us.

    Thanks Liana! That must be flight-only for that price though right? What about accommodations/total? And is it all inclusive?

    @M&M- Yes, that's just the flight. Not all inclusive! For the Maldives I have a friends and family rate for the hotel, so we got a nice discount. Both hotels are insanely expensive and I'm embarrassed to say how much they cost!

    Two members of our BP just got married (to each other obvs) in 2012 and went to Dubai and Seychelles for a total of 2 weeks. They said it was a blast. If you like to cook, that's where to pick up fresh spices.
