Oh, I think that is fantastic! My friend and I wanted to do a double-honeymoon but our guys looked at us like we were nuts. It’s not like you’ll be spending every single second with your friends! I think it sounds like a great idea!

I actually do think this is kinda crazy.

The honeymoon is a time for you and your new husband to bond. There are plenty of opportunities for group holidays in the future.

My husband and I travelled half way around the world and spent 1/2 the time in the bedroom! That is what it should be like- now you will feel forced to be social at a time you should be able to be insular and just.. together.

I can relate – Fiance and I are bringing our siblings and a few friends from England along on our honeymoon!   We’re living in Australia and our siblings are spread across the globe, so we thought it would be fun to spend some time with them in Yellowstone for our mini-honeymoon.  We were going to do a proper honeymoon a few months after the wedding but bumped it up to before the wedding and just got home last night from a pre-honeymoon to New Zealand.   We’ve travelled a lot together so having to have a holiday for just the two of us immediately after the wedding wasn’t a necessity.

I knew this couple who opted to not have a huge wedding and honeymoon and have a honeymoon with their family.. brides parents and sister went with her boyfriend and idk about the grooms side… I seriously thought that was strange. I often go on trips with my Fiance and friends… but my honeymoon is meant just for him and me. BUT with that being said YOUR honeymoon should be how YOU have always wanted it

I think this is awesome!! My SO and I have travelled alone together before and totally missed having other people we knew around. We also live together and I personally don’t view that week as a time to bond etc, it’s just a vacation to get away from everything. The only thing you might want to think about is setting aside a day or 2 where it’s only the 2 of you.

I think it’s a good idea. My Fiance and I were like… we better meet some couples and hang out with them. We can’t imagine staring at each other for 7 days by ourselves… it’s just not normal for us. Good thing we’re going to Sandals and every couple there will be newly married 🙂

I actually think it’s a great idea and it’s something that we considered. We’re taking a cruise for our Honeymoon and we thought that it would be more fun with another couple (FI’s brother/SIL). We would have still been able to have all the alone time we wanted but when we did want to hang out with other people, we had friends on board. They ended up getting pregnant so they’ll no longer be coming but I do think we would have had a good time.
