After Ree Drummond’s daughter and fiancee walked down the aisle, the newlyweds have revealed the location of their dreamy honeymoon.
Recently, Alex Drummond and Mauricio Scott tied the knot at their family ranch in Oklahoma. The wedding was not without its glamor – from the food to the dress to the venue. The wedding was one for the ages.
The college sweethearts met at Texas A&M University and got engaged in August 2020. After their nuptials, the two jetted off on a romantic getaway. However, the pair kept the location of their honeymoon a secret from fans until their arrival, but eventually, they revealed the secret spot: the Maldives.
As one of the most exclusive vacation spots, a flight to the Maldives costs anywhere between $15,000 to $30,000 for two tickets. Additionally, the newlyweds are staying at a five-star resort on the luxurious islands called Gili Lankanfushi. For a nine-day stay in April at the resort, guests would likely pay about $25,000.
While the vacation spot is not without its gorgeous views, the resort is not all-inclusive, meaning the couple will have to pay extra for food and drinks. Per estimates, their meal tab alone will cost an estimated $4,300. With basic costs, the couples’ stay will come in at around $44,000 to $59,000. However, the newlyweds will most likely splurge on activities while staying on the island as well.
Ree Drummond Reminisces on Honeymoon
As for Ree Drummond, she recently got candid about her own honeymoon with her husband, Ladd. In the days following her daughter’s wedding, Drummond confessed a “TMI” moment about her honeymoon. Even though their honeymoon was way back in 1996, it didn’t keep the Pioneer Woman from feeling a sense of nostalgia.
“Our honeymoon baby is getting married tonight. (TMI?),”Drummond’s caption read next to a post from her Instagram. The photo was an image of her and Ladd Drummond sitting with their backs to the camera. It turns out Drummond liked to make a joke or two about how much she enjoyed her own honeymoon.
“Maybe a honeymoon grandbaby is on the way!” one fan joked in the comments, adding “TMI” to the end. “Will history repeat itself?” another user chimed in.
Drummond and Ladd met in an Oklahoma bar, but apparently, it took Ladd some time to work up the courage to ask his future wife out. He waited four months before he asked Drummond on a date, though once that time came, there was no looking back.
