@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.

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.
