How Long Will You Honeymoon?

Recommended Posts

I know many of us are going to our destination venue a day/days early prior to the wedding. How long are you anticipating staying at your destination/honeymoon location after your wedding?


My FI and I are going 3 nights early and getting married on day 4, but we are taking his kids (9 and 13) and having a "family vacation" prior to the wedding. The day after the wedding, we will send the boys home and start our honeymoon. What I'm struggling with is he keeps mentioning that we will only be there for a few more days. Part of me keeps thinking, "I only get 2 full days with you after we are married then we have to go home?" (the other days would be travel days. I kinda feel like I'm being selfish but the other part I think I'm paying for all of this wedding and I 3 nights alone? Even our first night as a married couple we will have his boys because their flight doesn't leave until the next day - not very romantic but the way it has to be in order to include them in the wedding.


I'm all for the kids being apart of the wedding but it feels like I'm giving up tons. Any thoughts? Any ideas how to approach this without coming across tacky/selfish?

I am doing the same thing. It's a little crappy not to get the extra days alone but we have decided to take a 1 year honeymoon without the children.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
