How many days will your Honeymoon be? How long is too long? LOL At first I was thinking 2 weeks then I figured a week should be enough. Now Im thinking 6 days 5 nights. I just dont want to be away for too long then end up fighting with him over petty things. I also have a 10 year old (she’ll be 12 by then) daughter that will be staying with relatives while Im away. But

Our honeymoon was 11 days, and it was incredible. It was good to get home though after that long, but now I can’t wait to go back for 7 days for our anniversary!

2 weeks… whoa. I could never vacation for that long. If you did do 2 weeks, you would be on the phone with your daughter for hours on end… because you miss her so much.
Believe it or not, I think that after 1 week I would actually start missing my job.
Ours will be 6 days. We did a 8 day vacation to Punta Cana in December and that was waaaayyy too long. We spent an entire day in our suite watching football.

We went for 12 days, plus 2 half days of travel so ~13 days. It was nice to have time to actually unpack our suitcases for the week and relax, but we were happy to get back home towards the end. (Not ready to leave paradise, but tired of travelng lol)

After about 6 days of travelling, I start getting really grumpy. Lol.

10 days. It was great to relax for that long, but in terms of a vacation/hm in a single location, it was a little too long for me. I like to be on the move when I travel.

Just traveling in general, I don’t like to be gone too long. 4-5 days on average. Anything longer than that and I just want to get home. I really appreciate the conveniences of my home. So, we honeymooned for 4 days. It was perfect. It gave us time to come home, relax and get settled in before we had to go back to work. I like to be able to do that after every trip I take.

We’re going for 2.5 weeks. Plus our wedding is a destination wedding so we’ll be gone for an extra week before that. In terms of what’s “too long” that’s very individual. Since you have a child leaving for almost a month probably isn’t an option. However, she is old enough that you don’t really have to worry too much. So I say take your two weeks, you deserve it!

13 days for us!!! I went to the Bahamas for 8 days (had been there 3 times before) so that was a bit too long….. but I think that because we are doing one week in cancun and the next week at disneyworld….13 days will be just fine….

IT really depends on what you have planned to do on your honeymoon. If there willbe lots of activities and interesting things to do then it could be as long as 2 weeks, but if its mostly sitting on the beach everyday after about a week you would get abit antsy to do something else

We’re thinking about going for 10 days… But I am worried that it might too long?? Fiance is content with sitting on the beach for the rest of his life, but I get really antsy without anything to do!!

I would say go as long as you like. I generally would say no longer than a week for me (factoringin travel time as well) because I have a daughter and my Fiance has a son and we would not want to be away too long from either one of them.

Why would you be fighting with him over petty things on a trip longer than 6 days??
I really love 2 week long trips – we just did 2 weeks in Iceland and I wish it had been a little longer, actually! We are getting ready to backpack through Asia for 6 months, though, so I guess I’m not the norm!

@crayfish: I was thinking the same thing.
Our Honeymoon is 7 days. Originally we were going to book a 5 day cruise but we felt that was too short so we opted for a 7 day instead. For us, I think 7 days will be perfect. We have a kitty at home who we love to pieces so it will be hard enough being away from him for a week.
