Nearlyweds, I got the greatest wedding gift of all last night. I had suspected it was coming before now but last night we got the definite.

Mr. GP's parents are paying for 5 nights (and his brother is paying for the 6th) for our honeymoon in San Juan, PR.


I was/am beyond floored. Earlier this weekend they had emailed us two hotels to look into - we checked out reviews for both, they're nearly right next to each other.

The Corner suite....not necessarily ours...but still. Pretty!

The pool....ohhh la laaaaaa.

We'll be staying at the San Juan Marriott Resort and Stellaris Casino. I am so very excited, the amenities are thorough, the reviews of the other Marriott had mentioned construction, so instead of risk it we went with the one that had stellar, consistent reviews. It's right on the beach, about five miles from Old San Juan, and has lots of places to eat around it, did I mention there's a casino??

I am still beyond floored. I need to be sure to write thank you notes to my future in-laws, because really, I know what it's like to be on the opposite side of having parents who adore you. I know what it's like to feel like you're not good enough for the man you're dating and this? Is an incredibly, amazing change of pace. I am a lucky, lucky gal and honored to be "marrying into" such a wonderful, generous family.

Did you get any amazing gifts from your parents or your fiance's parents??

That's really amazing. I am also Extremely lucky to have my future in-laws. Neither of my parents have any money at all, so I just figured we'd pay for our own wedding and just keep it really small. But my fiance's parents have matched the amount we originally budgeted AND they're paying for our honeymoon, which we get to plan and they'll pay for it. We're planning to go to Belize. Best part? They have no interest in making any of the decisions on the wedding or rehearsal dinner, even though they're contributing a considerable amount of money. They're just.. really amazing people. I heart them so much. We decided to have our wedding on their anniversary and plan to honor them in some way during our reception. I'm so excited!
