Honestly I wanted something alot bigger than what we settled with, but seeing as we are paying for the wedding and honeymoon we didn’t have the spare cash.  We decided just to do a 5 day all inclusive in the DR but for our 1 year anniversary we will do something like Europe or Hawaii when we can afford a little more.

Maybe yall can plan Spain for an anniversary trip.

We didn’t have time, energy or money left after the wedding for the honeymoon I really wanted, so we booked a mini-moon at an island inn in Maine right after our wedding.  Now that we’ve had some time to save up some more cash, we have booked our “real” honeymoon and are departing on our 11-month-iversary!  I think the most important thing right after the wedding is to have some time together to unwind and let it all sink in.  It doesn’t have to be an exotic location.  Our wedding was so chaotic that I’m glad we did something low key right afterwards.  I wouldn’t have had the bandwidth for a more adventurous trip despite preferring them in general.

@Missido:  Oh, yes, my plans have changed so much that I just stop sharing with people in real life any more!  I was all set to book our Canadian Rockies weddingmoon (we’ll be getting married on the trip), and I chickened out since it could overlap with my father’s passing.


Currently we have no plans and it’s driving me insane, but we need to wait until the dust settles.

You have such a great attitude!

You know that being with the one you love is the most important thing that matters. How many people go through life never finding their soul mates? Those of us that do are so lucky. BEing with them is what matters most, & you are wise to understand that.

Have a beautiful time together on your honeymoon!

I love Vermont.  Do you know where you’ll be?  If it’s the Islands area of Lake Champlain, you’re so luck, it’s one of my favorite places!

I feel ya!

I wrote a post a couple months back: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/no-more-dream-honeymoon

We planned on traveling to Crete, Greece for 10 days, then traveling up to Macedonia where he is from to visit with his family members that still live there and have a second wedding for them and then go to Croatia for a week or 2. So we would have been gone 4-6 weeks.

He just opened up his own business and doesn’t really want to be gone that long and everything we have is tied up in that business. And one round trip plane tickct would have cost us $2,000.

So we booked an 8 night honeymoon to Grand Bahama for $2,300! A tab more than the price of ONE tickect!

I was embarassed at first because I had told EVERYONE that we would be going to Eastern Europe for our honeymoon. But you both have your entire lives to go to Spain! And you will get there!

I think your honeymoon sounds amazing!  Vermont is definately on my dream list of travel destinations (so is Barcelona actually!)  I think Vermont will be perfect though because you’ll be able to take things slowly and relax.  If you went to Spain, you might feel more pressure to see everything.  I think it’s sweet your fiance dreamed of taking his future wife to Spain! And, of course, he will still be able to take you there in the future.
