Aww I’m sorry.  Do the two of you have limited time off or something?  A flight to Ireland from the Atlantic coast probably would only take up a day’s travel each way so it wouldn’t really have much of an effect on the honeymoon really.

irelands a lot better.. much more dreamy… Is there any reason why he would suggest the big drive part from he doesnt want to fly? I know my FH gets scared at the cost and is always looking at the cheaper option ๐Ÿ˜›

Maybe hold off until a time when he has more free time, like in the summer and just do a little trip for now?  My husband and I still haven’t gone on a trip since we got married due to time and money constraints.

Maybe you can take a shorter honeymoon some where closer so that you don’t have to spend a lot of time flying (3-4 days).

Hold off until his winter, spring or summer break for the honeymoon! That’s what I would do, personally, bc spending 13 hours driving doesn’t sound like fun to me…

I don’t think that sounds like a good honeymoon either. I hope you guys can come with something better.

Ok, I know everyone else doesn’t like the “road trip” idea- but I think it sounds nice because of the time of year. If you are getting married in October, all the leaves will be SO pretty and it will be a beautiful drive! What if you stop at a cute B&B along the way? Then, get to Ireland a little later when he has more time off from school, like winter break or next summer? Have fun whatever you decide!

I think you guys should go somewhere in the US that you want to visit and have a little honeymoon and then do Ireland when he has more time off. A road trip could be romantic but I think for me it would be a 13 hour fight because I hate being in the car. lol. I guess it just depends on your personality.

something similar happened to us

we will wait until one day down the road for the longer trip

but the first alternative he suggested sounded so lame to me and I was not digging it

so then I came to terms with the parameters and came up with something I would find romantic that wouldn’t take such a long time nor cost too much

 

I hope you find a new compromise that you will look forward to!

Definitely be honest with him about how you feel about a road trip. You might be able to come up with some kind of compromise, as others have suggested. 

As a middle school teacher, does he get summers off? That might be a good time to make your trip happen…
