    No way!  He’d plan something like Ireland or Scotland.  I prefer tropical destinations.

    In a heartbeat!! My husband is a fantastic planner with similar tastes to my own. If he wanted to do something like that, hell yeah!

    No way! My DH is terrible at planning and thinking through the logistics. For example, he thinks that since a flight is 6 AM, it’s fine to be at the airport at 5 AM because no one will be there. We had to run to the terminal and got on the plane within minutes of take off with no breakfast because “there will be plenty of time to eat at the airport.” That’s never happening again.

    ETA: Also, DH is a more adventurous type while I’m more laid back. I need input or we would be going camping in Canada in the middle of winter for ten days.

    I tried, he claimed the best deal he could get was at Costco… but it turned out he was only looking at packages. He and I have to tackle this together one of these days (yes, I know I don’t have much time to do this. Ahem.)

    I really want him to to a degree – I want him to do all the research, but he ought to consult me on major details. I’d be too nervous to have it be an entire surprise.

    @SeaSalt:  FI and I decided on loa tactile together. I had a friend suggest a place to stay. He did the rest. He’s bought airline tickets, reservations, etc. it’s nice that I just haven’t had to worry about the honeymoon. However, I’m a smidge too much of a control freak to be completely surprised! I’m sure you guys will have a great time!

    I love the idea of a surprise honeymoon.  I’d let my FI plan it if he wanted to.  Our tastes in travel are pretty similar, so I wouldn’t be concerned at all about the destination he chose.

    I would let him do it- he would probably do a great job. However, he’s going to be taking the level 2 CFA exam a week before our wedding, so there’s no way he’s going to have time to do all the planning himself. I’m fully expecting to shoulder the majority of that load and I’m ok with it.

    @SeaSalt:  Nope!

    I plan and book all our trips; I deal with our travel agent, and get the best deals, and I know what hotels are best, when it’s best to travel (in terms of cost), etc etc. It would take him much longer then me to plan a trip, and he probably wouldn’t get as good a deal as I would.

    However, while I did the groundwork the decision was mutual; same with all other big wedding-related decisions (eg venue, food, cake, photography, etc).

    He already plans most of our vacations, so I don’t see why not 🙂

    He can’t handle planning something like that.  He *tried* to plan a surprise 30th for me and even that was too much stress for him (with help from my Mom and BFF he still couldn’t get it done). hahaha

    We got engaged, I looked at him and went “You should plan the honeymoon. That can be your thing.”

    Little did I know I was marrying a Groomzilla! He wound up planning half the wedding AND all of the honeymoon! (He did a great job, though!)
