How I booked an 18-day honeymoon of a lifetime on points My husband Jaime and I celebrated our six-month wedding anniversary on March 21 in quarantine, so with extra time on my hands, it’s finally time to write about how we planned the honeymoon of a lifetime — almost totally on points: Our points-moon.
Before we get into honeymoon planning, I need to give my dog Swisher, the marketing assistant of The Points Guy (and one of the @thepointspups) his five minutes of fame. He was the ring bearer at our September wedding and, I must say, he looked quite handsome in a tux.

As TPG’s director of marketing and communications, I had no choice but to book my honeymoon using points and miles. I enlisted the help of a few team members, including the Zachs (Zach Honig and Zach Griff) and the Nicks (Nick Ellis and Nick Ewen) and, of course, Brian Kelly, The Points Guy himself.
My planning started about eight months out from our wedding. However, the welcome bonuses I accrued from the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card and The Platinum Ccard® from American Express were earned way before that. How I booked an 18-day honeymoon of a lifetime on points
My husband and I love to travel and have taken some amazing trips in the last few years to Greece, Bali, Japan, Morocco and more. Deciding where to go on our honeymoon was a decision we didn’t take lightly. After watching TPG’s videos of The St. Regis Maldives, we knew we had to go there. Thus began the planning of our 18-day honeymoon.
