- Wedding: September 2013 - B&B
My DH and I had decided before our wedding that we were going to Honeymoon for our first anniversary.
DH came up with an idea that if we can get a good enough cruise deal, that we would maybe look into surprising his brother (who gets married in the first half of 2014) with THEIR honeymoon. (Probably not just as a wedding gift, but birthday gifts too! lol)
Obviously we need to do some research: 1) are they planning something already? We sort of don’t think they are, because he recently graduated, and isn’t currently working, because soon after they get married, they want to move. (He is looking for part time.) She is going to graduate in December, with a teaching degree, so she wouldn’t start full time until the school year. But, we should do some recon.
Would they not want to go on a cruise? That seems like it could be our best option, price and amenity wise. But if it is SO not of interest to them, well then it wouldn’t make sense.
Would they be unhappy “sharing” their honeymoon? I know DH and I don’t really care… we aren’t sharing a room!!! So if we want to go off on our own, we can. If not, we have two people we get alone with to explore and do things with. But maybe they want to be totally alone?
Again, we’re just starting to explore, and we do have some info to gather, and we have to find a deal otherwise we can’t do it. What do you think? In general, awesome idea? Inviting more trouble than it will probably be worth? Have you ever bought anyone a trip?
And, does anyone have any good ideas for how to get a good deal on a cruise?
