Really bummed about our honeymoon...

Recommended Posts

Leia - I would still go. I went to France a few years ago in the month of January and I loved every second of it. Actually Paris was my least favorite I found because the men were kind of creeping me out. I went with a group of girls, so that's probably why :P You on the other hand with be with your hubby!! I say go! Seriously it will be a very romantic honeymoon. I remember seeing alot of couples and wishing that J was there with me to experience it all.

 

What do you guys have in mind for touristy things you want to see and do?!

I lived in Southern France for about 6 months when I was younger from September - February and honestly the weather wasnt that bad. Yes it's cold not that rainy at least not like England/Scotland region. I say go for it, you will love sitting at the outdoor cafe's with boots jeans and a stylish sweater sipping on lattes/cappicianos (sp?) and people watching. Its so laid back there and so beautiful.

Well we spent 2 days in Paris a couple of years ago, so we packed in all a lot of the touristy sites (the louvre, eiffal tower, Palace of Versailles, Notre Dame, the Champs-Elysees, and the Arc de Triomphe...) I really look forward to walking around, people watching, eating at the cafes/restaurants, shopping, going to the farmer's market...just relaxing and living the Parisian lifestyle for 1 week! As for Florence, we've never been. So definately site seeing there is a must but I also want to shop at the outlets. Has anyone been to the LV, Gucci, etc. outlets in Florence?

Oh yeah, where do you guys think we should stay in Paris. We didn't get a chance to check out the Latin Quarter, but I heard that place is really lively and fun. Should we stay in that areahuh.gif

I love people watching too!!! Glad I'm not the only weirdo lol j/k

 

Oh you and your new DH are going to have such a fabulous time. What a great place to honeymoon. It was such a rainy day the day we decided to venture to the outlets, even with my umbrella, I was soaked from head to toe. I was in a miserable mood so i didn't buy anything. I think I was whining too lol. Some of my gfs bought some stuff though. Still a bit pricey form what I can remember.

 

I'm not sure about what area to stay in, I didn't do the research for that trip. sorry!

Leia Im so sorry. I think you should go if you can afford to go again during better whether. I kinda understand what you are feeling, we are going to our HM not during our preferred season either. Who wants to go to New Zealand in the winter? But look at it this way, you get to see your favorite place in a different season! Plus you get to experience two different types of weather. Warm and Sunny and Rainy and Cold. You shouldnt have to put off your honeymoon.

I LOOOOOVVVVE YOUR PUPPY AND HIS OUTFITS TOO. SOOOO CUTE! POOR PUPPY HAD TO SIT THROUGH ALL THOSE SHOTS!

This is a sore subject for me cause the day my FI and I were going to go the outlets, he left his laptop in the villa we just checked out of...so we had to drive one hour back to get it and I missed the outlets. Boo hoo!

I heard they are awesome and totally worth it. The only good part about missing the outlets was he bought me a Prada wallet at the Prada store in the airport.

The honeymoon is definitely what you make of it. It might even be more romantic! And it depends what you are looking for... if you are not on a beach, or in a tropical location, it might not bother you at all!

Paris is gorgeous anytime of year. Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower at night. Florence is also beautiful. We stayed at a really nice place right across from the Duomo in the heart of Florence. I'll look it up and see if I can fine it. Nice hotel, not too expensive.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
