Does a luxury spa honeymoon sound right up your alley? It sounds like perfection to us, which is why we took a dreamy photo tour thru Cancun's ultimate spa resort, Secrets The Vine- an incredible locale for romantic and relaxing honeymoons.
This contemporary, adults-only resort is situated along a white sand beach with crystal clear views of the Caribbean Sea. Offering an adults-only Unlimited-Luxury® experience with gourmet dining, top-shelf spirits, 24-hour room service, daily activities, nightly performances, elite services and superior amenities, this elegant haven is the ideal escape for honeymooners.
Honeymoons are about relaxing and being pampered – and Secrets The Vine accommodates. The exquisite, 12,580 square foot Secrets Spa by Pevonia is boldly inspired by cave-like structures and natural cenotes of the area and hosts fourteen treatment rooms with spa suites for couples. A full-service beauty salon provides haircuts, styling, manicures, pedicures and make-up application for a romantic night out.
And, like the name implies, Secrets The Vine Cancun’s signature element is wine. Enjoy Sommelier-led wine tastings and infused spa treatments. The Spa carries a line of products made from the finest wine and grape seed essences, evoking the richness of a vineyard.
Specialty treatments include The Vine’s Diva Ritual Spa Package: a Bordeaux manicure, a facial, a massage with a blend of antioxidants, and a mélange of pomegranate and grape wine.
Talk about a toast-worthy honeymoon!

Including your pet in your pet in your wedding party has become a popular trend these days. Who doesn't ooh and ahh at the site of a furry friend wagging its tail down the aisle? But before you decide to have man's or (woman's) best friend by your side, here are some thoughts to consider:
1. Is your pet well-behaved?
2. Does your venue allow pets?
3. Which part(s) of the wedding day will your pet attend?
4. Are any of your guests allergic?
5. Who will be the handler?
6. What will your pet wear?

Paper bunting looks ultra modern and chic in polkadots and stripes. Use this simple tutorial and pattern inspiration to make accordion fold bunting for your ceremony or reception. It's sure to draw attention and adoration from guests!
Choose papers that coordinate with your palette and theme; each bunting piece is made from one 12x12 inch page of scrapbook paper.
Fold the paper back and forth- accordion style.
Locate the middle of the folded paper, then fold the entire length of the accordion in half.
Glue the center sections to one another.
Affix to a string and fan out the folds for display.
Make the strands as long as you need or combine multiple strands to create an artful wall display.
