I didn’t think this was so unusual, but when we tell people, they are always like, hm, why?

We are going to Croatia – north to south

I hear it is one of the most beautiful places in the world and I couldn’t be more excited!

Munich IS for lovers! It is a beautiful city with beautiful country surrounding the area. Dont be ashamed of your destination! I’ve been to Munich twice… It has so many amazing hidden secrets! I hope you have a lovely trip!

Heck, we aren’t even leaving the state for our honeymoon!!  We both love the outdoors…so we are going to Yosemite National Park for 10 days!  No one seems to understand why we don’t want to spend our honeymoon on a sandy beach, but we are going to Hawaii with the in-laws in November already, and why have a repeat trip 6 months later?

I completely understand where you are coming from.  I usually just try to field the responses with something respectful, but in reality I just want to say “mind your own business and be happy for us! We aren’t asking YOU to go!”

We’re going to NYC! I think that’s fairly non-typical as there will not be a beach involved 🙂

I think it’s awesome you’re going to Munich. It sounds like you’re going to have an amazing time, and it will be really meaningful to you!

My parents went to Montreal for their honeymoon and loved it. I think people underestimate how nice an urban honeymoon can be, or if they think about it, they only think Rome and Paris, for example.

We are going to Las Vegas and when we say that people assume that we are getting married there. It is actually just where we wanted to go though!

We’re doing the beach thing, but we’re going to Anguilla.  When we tell people, they’re always like, “where?  I’ve never heard of that.”

We live in MA and are spending 4 days in Bar Harbor, ME, two nights in Boston, and two nights in a seaside town north of Boston.  People make comments like it’s sad we couldn’t afford a real honeymoon but I have no desire to go to an all inclusive beach island and Europe is out because I have a  7yo and don’t want to be that far from her.  We made our decision based on having always wanting to go to all three of these locations and spending the money we’d use to fly somewhere and do things we’ve always wanted to!  We’ll be sea kayaking, hiking Acadia, having dinner on a schooner, have awesome seats to a Sox game, staying at five star hotels, taking a Segway tour of our favorite city, sunset cattaman cruise, deep sea fishing.  We’re obviously not ‘sit on the beach’ kind of people so this works for us. 

Munich sounds amazing……enjoy!!!!

I would LOVE to go to Munich again! I went about ten years ago, but I would love to share my love for Germany with my Fiance. We can’t afford Europe right now, but we are still going on a non-typical honeymoon. I know everyone expects us to cave and pick someplace like Cozumel or Jamaica – both of which I’d love, but my Fiance isn’t really into beaches and Mai Tais. Right now, we’re thinking something like Jackson Hole or Santa Fe. Not exactly a tropical paradise, but I’m pretty sure we’ll have loads of fun wherever we go. 🙂

We’re going to Australia which is fairly unique for our circle just because being based on the east coast makes it SOOOOOOOOOOO far to get to!  Neither of us knows anyone who’s ever been except my one co-worker who’s hubby was born there.

We’re going to Venezuela, which is pretty unusual (although it does involve the beach since Ven’s northern coast is on the Carribbean) I think Munich sounds awesome, as do the rest of these places!

Your honeymoons sound fantastic!! We don’t know where ours will be yet, but probably somewhere standard and beachy bc we’re semi-low budget (3k) and in February.
