I've got another 11 days until the wedding and this seems to be a question that comes up all too often. Everyone wants to know about our honeymoon and then they argue with us when we tell them we're not having one. We want to go to Rome and do a little tour of Europe while we're over there and see a bunch of different things, but we don't have the money yet and we don't want to spend several hundred dollars on a weekend getaway or something that we don't really want. Instead, we're putting that money into savings for that honeymoon, which we plan on taking probably either on our first or second anniversary. So where did you spend your honeymoon? Or where are you going to spend your honeymoon? Did you do something like what we're doing?

My fiance and I, and my in laws are planning on taking a trip to Texas and then Arizona with probably seeing something in New Mexico as well. However, we don't have the money, plus the Swine Flu has us hesitant. Now though we're just going to go to the mountains for a honeymoon. Lol, I know it sounds strange, but yes the in laws are coming along with us as my fiance and I do not tend to stay on vacation for more then 12 hours, lol.

That's an interesting idea, having other people come along on your honeymoon with you. We couldn't do that. Our families drive us insane enough as it is. xD But a honeymoon in the mountains sounds lovely. Nothing wrong with that. I live in the mountains and it's a gorgeous place and quite romantic at certain times if you find the right places. ^_^

We live in a rural area, but both his and my family have family that are in the mountains, around the same area. It is very beautiful up in the mountains. Lol, well his parents don't drive us crazy, atleast not too crazy and they've helped us pay for so much of our wedding that we're happy to let them also pay for our honeymoon, lol.

Oh, they're paying for the honeymoon? Lucky you. Our parents let us pay for most of the wedding ourselves, though they each did select one thing they would pay for (my mother got my dress, his father bought him a suit, his mother's getting the cake, etc), so it worked out alright. The honeymoon is ours to pay for, though. I can see how you'd let them come if they're paying, though. ^_^ I hope you have a great honeymoon, either way, and it's really good that you get along with them well.

That sounds lovely! Beaches are always great for honeymoons. :) They provide a very romantic atmosphere as well as a great vantage point for watching sunsets. ;)

That's a very good idea, saving it for later so you can really enjoy it to the fullest without worrying your finances. About me, i and my hubby doesn't have a honeymoon yet,even were almost two years married, the reason is we don't have enough money and he don't have much tine from work. Maybe one of these days, we will having our honeymoon in Europe and by that time my baby is little bit bigger. So we are saving for it now. Cheers.

That's always a good idea. It's hard to have a honeymoon with a small baby, I think. You wouldn't much be able to enjoy what's going on around you because you'd have to give constant attention to the baby, but when they're a little older then they can appreciate it a little more along with you. ^_^ I hope you get the honeymoon you're looking for!

I like you idea. I always say get what you really want. I have been thinking about what me and my guy would do for a honeymoon because cash is just not there and saving to the vacation you really want is nice and a great way to spend an anniversary.

I got the idea, myself, from some friends/family that did that. My cousins waited until their...third anniversary, I think...and then they went to Italy like they wanted to. ^_^

GOOD FOR YOU! You don't have the money so you wait! That's a good plan. People will always have their opinion about what matters - blah blah blah blah. Plus, you can do all that baby making stuff in the privacy of your own home. So there. Anyway, I'm not getting married yet. But we've talked about maybe Japan, or just areas of Asia. My bf is cambodian, thai and french mix - and he's never been back to any of those countries since he was one (well Cambodia and Thailand). I wanna go back to the Philippines to visit since I have not been back since, hmmm....8 years ago I think? We both wanna go to Japan for different reasons though - for him, he just wants to all those souped up cars. For me, I wanna see all those long bridges and highways (I'm a Civil Engineer, and a nerd). Win/win situation. =D

"That babymaking stuff" LOL. That was our point, too, and that's what we told our family. xD Japan sounds like a wonderful honeymoon, and if there are benefits for both of you going then it's definitely a win/win! And don't feel nerdy...I'd love to see the bridges and highways, too, and I'm not even a civil engineer. :)
