I want to skip the honeymoon. I know that sounds weird but I just don’t feel like traveling anywhere. I have posted before how I didn’t think we would have money to go..now we do and I don’t want to. I just want to come back to work Monday and go home after. Does this sound weird? Maybe I am just exhausted from working alot and planning the wedding.
Anyone else feel like this?

It’s what every you and your new husband want to do! As long as you two are doing what you want, then it’s perfectly OK.
You’re talking as if this were some mandatory thing, when in fact it’s a personal decision.
ME? I rarely turn down a vacation. I go somewhere probably every six weeks. Work be damned!

There’s no right or wrong – it’s whatever is best for you and your husband. I for one am sooo looking forward to relaxation with Fiance after the wedding just us two because planning has been so stressful and felt it was about everyone else except for the two of us.

@sienna76: ME? I rarely turn down a vacation. I go somewhere probably every six weeks. Work be damned! LOL! I’m totally with you on this one!
I agree that it is definitely up to the two of you if you want to go or not, but I personally wouldn’t pass up the chance to travel. 🙂

The honeymoon is supposed to be a time to relax, so if planning that is adding more stress than it’s worth, skip it!
Do what makes you happy!!!

What about it doesnt sound appealing? The act of traveling, the planning of it? Spending the money?
Or do you really just want to go back to work?
If its the first few items you could always do a staycation and hunker down a few days the two of you in your place. Watch movies, take walks order dinner in etc.
What does your FH prefer?
I couldnt have imagined not wanting to spend one on one time with my new husband

You don’t HAVE to go on a honeymoon, as in, as long as your SO is cool with it, no one will get angry or anything.
But I agree with previous posters that a honeymoon should be all about relaxing after so much stress and planning and give you and your new husband time to focus on each other.
I can see how the stress of traveling right after the wedding would make things more hectic, though, so we are planning on taking our honeymoon 2-6 weeks AFTER the actual wedding. Would that be an option for you?

You don’t have to haha. No one is going to force you to. Except maybe your future husband. ;p But I think you guys should do whatever makes you happy. Maybe just go to a bed and breakfast for a night.

A couple people in my family GASPED that I don’t want to go on a honeymoon just yet. I got alot of crap for not wanting to go. PLUS we were planning on going to disneyland and I saw the price for gas in Cali…that turned me off even more! lol I don’t know. Maybe I will want to go when it gets closer..I just want to be married already! I’m so stressed. Thanks for the advice ladies!
