Im hoping that you guys can give me and my FI some ideas to do on our honeymoon. We have decided that we are going to be doing a staycation because we are ALWAYS travelling, working, driving, picking up my stepdaughters, generally just doing something that makes us incrediably busy and really unable to spend much time together alone. We have already been on 3 holidays this year (Florida, Cancun, and visited my parents) so its not as if we dont travel, we really just dont want too this time and would much rather just sit at home, go for walks, play with the dogs, make dinner together, cuddle on the couch, do a day trip into the movies, see the girls, etc. But I’m looking for other ideas on things that we can do to make it even more special. Thanks in advance for all the wonderful ideas

@TraLo: Do you have hot air balloon rides in your town/city? I have always wanted to do that and think it would be so romantic!

Hmmm….I would find a local spa that also has an indoor pool and go for a couples massage followed by a swim. Usually resorts will let you use their facilities for a day when you book services. I’d check it out, this is one of my favorite things to do in winter on a crappy weather day 🙂

Knowing what City / State / Country you are in would be helpful in making suggestions for a Stay-cation
The one thing I would suggest is that you look at least having a night or two away right after the Ceremony (for your Wedding Night etc)
There is something totally different about being MR & MRS and having a romantic hotel room… Great Beds – Great Bathrooms – maybe a Great View or some other pampering extras… like Rose Petals – Bubbly – Chocolate Strawberries etc.
As an Encore Bride, I would not have wanted to come right back home after the Reception to my own house & bed.
Pampering yourself at least for one night / next day is a good thing IMO as Weddings (planning them, organizing them, and getting thru the long day) can be exhausting. Something nice to be said for a WONDERFUL ROMANTIC HOTEL ROOM at the end of it all.

Those are all great ideas thank you….we actually live in a really small town (approx 1000 people) but we are only a couple hours drive from large centres.We have already rented a hotel room as well to be away from the hustle and bustle and just be with each other.

While you’re staying at the hotel for the first night or two, consider having a cleaning service come in and really really clean your house. It will be a mess after wedding prep and it would be such a nice gift to yourselves to come back to a sparkling clean place that you don’t feel obligated to tidy up when you should be relaxing.
