(Closed) clueless about honeymoons?

I don’t remember what traditional etiquette says about who finances the honeymoon, but that’s one of the (few) things that we’re picking up the tab on.  I already feel guilty that my parents are picking up so much of the tab for the wedding, it wouldn’t feel right if they (or my future in-laws) were financing our vacation. 

I’d recommend going away for a day or two together, even if it’s going someplace close, unglamorous, and cheap.  Do a local mini-moon.  

Also, it sounds like you’re either hedging your bets, or making assumptions about both parents budgets.  Have you had an honest discussion with both sides to see what they’re willing to contribute?  Good luck.

I agree with Erin…even if you cant do a honeymoon far away from home…do something local for a day or two. Something like a bed and breakfast or a nice hotel with room service. Just so the two of you can have the special night together as the new married couple. And if you cant see yourselves doing that just stay home in bed, turn off the cell phones, computers, tv, etc and have a nice romantic day together…just all about you and him. 🙂
