- Wedding: December 2012
So the other night, Mr TTR dropped a bomb on me…
The idea that we change the whole Honeymoon part of our Wedding
So instead of getting married in Myrtle Beach and following it up with a Mini Moon – Back Home Reception – and then a Winter Getaway “Honeymoon”
That perhaps we just combine it all into one long vacation… Wedding – Mini Moon & Honeymoon… that now becomes just one long period of time off… (this is a BIG deal considering the 2 of us are self-employed and typically cannot stretch out our time away from the offic to much beyond a 7 to 10 day stretch)
Lol, after having a few days to ponder it over… I too am thinking of making some changes.
So as excited as he was about the revamped Mini Moon & Honeymoon combo… I dropped it on him that I’d like to reschedule our Christmas Eve Wedding in Myrtle Beach (which was becoming problematic logistically)… to a whole different affair later in December =OR= January
We looked at various ideas…
A Casual Blues Wedding in Memphis – a Formal Antebellum Wedding at a Plantation in Mississippi – or a Beach Wedding in The Keys (we also looked at getting married on our cruise but as nice as it is… it is super expensive to get married at sea or at a Port of Call)
After talking it thru… we are now thinking that our Elopement to a Destination Wedding should happen when we are in Southern Florida just before we hop on the Cruise Ship for the part of our vacation that I’ve always considered to be our “Honeymoon” (vs Mini Moon)… and as much as I love our Mini Moon too… this part of our Holiday was always what I envisioned more honeymoon-ish with the exotic ports of call of a Caribbean Cruise… and all the pampering that a cruise ship offers. The true big bonus though here is that it isn’t Christmas / New Years (so easier to coordinate things without the Christmas Season playing havoc)… we get to marry in Southern Florida which will be considerably WARMER… and it will all go down just before the part of our vacation that I consider the most noteworthy Honeymoon wise (Cruise vs Road Trip)… PLUS we’ll end up getting married in a Destination that is “solely ours” (no trips with past GFs / Spouces)
The only downside to all this, is I find myself back at square one… and having a ton more of stuff of plan… in the same timeframe.
Gosh, I hope I can find the energy / motivation to do it all…
