So my fiance and i were talking about taking all of our family with us on our honey moon. what do you guys think of this? i actually love the idea of bringing everyone. but im just making sure im not going to regret it. 🙂 there would be both my parents, my 2 brothers and their wives, his parents, and his brother and sister. of course everyone will have their rooming but i think it would be great to get everyone associated with each other. ALSO we would be paying for the entire trip along with rooming . but they would be responible for all other adventures they may want to partake in ,,, is that rude to pay for only that stuff and not the other? i dont know, i would love to hear all your input 🙂 thanks so much !!

Why couldn’t my brother find a woman like you? LOL
I think most people would be extremely grateful that you’re inviting them along and providing the lodging for them. I’d hope they wouldn’t have a problem paying for anything they choose to do. Just remember, it’s your honeymoon and you and your Mr. should spend some alone time together as well.

Thats VERY generous of you. As far as regretting it goes, I can’t really answer that since I don’t know your situation but I can share mine with you…
FI and I are taking a cruise to Bermuda for our honeymoon and we have discussed FI’s brother and SIL coming with us. We wouldn’t regret having them come for a number of reasons.
1. FI and I live together (will have been for more than 6 years by the time our wedding rolls around). We’ve already done all of the things couples are supposed to do on their honeymoon. Only difference will be that we’re married.
2. Cruises are ALOT more fun with other people. Sure, FI and I will have a blast if we go solo but we’ll have an even better time if we have them there with us.
3. Cruise ships are BIG. We could easily get a cabin on one end of the boat and they on the other. If we don’t want to see them, we don’t have to see them.
We’ve mentioned this idea to a few different people, all of whom have voiced some serious concerns with it (though they were all couples who didn’t even live together before getting married so they have a different view of the honeymoon than we do). Either way we look at it, our honeymoon is still going to be romantic because its our honeymoon.
If we do choose to have them come along, as long as FI and I can have a few dinners and atleast one port day alone, that will really be all we need.

It wouldn’t be my choice of honeymoons tbh, but if that sounds good to you then I’m pretty sure you won’t get arguements from your families! Personally I wanted my honeymoon to be Anton and Teri private and alone time. 🙂

@UpstateCait: See thats the thing we were in the same situation, and thinking about doing the whole cruise scene also. our parents dont go on vacations and we have done countless things together also. lol i dont want to say we would get bored with each other but there are some things on vacations that females and males would like do that the other one doesnt want to be dragged along with lol. i just think it would be a blast and if someone people dont want to be a part in something they dont have to feel urged to go . i like how you worded your situation its exactly like ours i have been with him for going on 7 years now and although we dont live together because of certain arrangements we have done almost everything as a couple we just have a great time but like you said its always more fun sharing it with others 🙂 thanks so much for sharing
