I’ve been married a year and I still haven’t gone on a honeymoon. You can always save up a little when you can and go on a belated honeymoon later on, maybe a year or so from now? I wanted a honeymoon too, but life doesn’t always work out that way.

kittywolf13:  honestly, for us the honeymoon was just like any other vacation. Sure it was fun, but I think people hype up the whole thing more than necessary. You guys can take a nice anniversary trip instead when you are able and it will be just as fun and meaningful!

Don’t get over it…well…get over it in the sense that do not hold it over your hubs head. Set a date. 2 year anniversary (1 year if possible) and say that you want a mini vowel renewel just the two of you on a beach or other exotic locale. Travelling is fantastic and you should have that opportunity, but make a date and ignore that it did not happen in the exact pattern as everyone else.

Well if you can’t afford it, you can’t afford it. That’s that. I’m sure later on down the line when finances are better you will be able to. 

I wouldn’t hold it over your husbands head. I’m sure he already feels bad enough he can’t currently provide a honeymoon to you, don’t rub it in.

Get over it.  You can’t control your finances, and you need to stop comparing your wedding to anyone else’s.  stop dreaming about vacations you can’t afford, and focus on the good things — you have a good life with a good man, and that’s all that really matters.

kittywolf13:  Can you start planning and saving for a one year anniversary trip?

Why not plan on a nice vacation for your 1 or 2 year anniversary? If you start planning now you will have enough time to save up and have something to look forward to. DH and I are finally going on our honeymoon in July after getting married in October.

kittywolf13:  We are taking our honeymoon the following year because neither of us has the vacation time left, nor do we have enough money to do a honeymoon right after either (our wedding is in October, we are going away in April). Another friend had a staycation after their wedding and then went on a big trip a year or so later. My point is that you will eventually get that trip that you have been after – but sometimes things happen and you have to wait – it will be worth it in the end!

There is nowhere written you must go on your honeymoon immediately after your wedding! Take time to save and go on your honeymoon for your 1 yr anniversary or something along those lines. Please don’t hold it over your husbands head!! So not fair lol!! Road trips are fun too. My SO and I one time took a long weekend and drive from Toronto to Nova Scotia (Canadian) just for the heck of it. We rented a mini van, grabbed a blow up mattress and made a quick trip of it. It didn’t cost much, stayed in van one night and hotel the next. We had a great time, maybe not honeymoon worthy, but depending on your cash situation you could do something similar.

I would pick where I’d like to go, total the amount that it will roughly cost and then start saving. Sure you couldnt leave right away. But it’s not too late! Good luck!

If you start comparing your life and what you do and don’t have to other peoples lives then you are just setting yourself up for a life time of disappointment and envy.
