I guess it depends exactly where you are going.  We went on our honeymoon to Sandals, so there were alot of other honeymooners there.  So, I’m sure if we dropped the “we’re on our honeymoon” card, they would have thought, “yeah, so what…so is everyone else that is here.” lol  If you are staying at a hotel that isn’t typically used as a honeymoon destination, I would definitely mention that it’s your honeymoon though!

It just depends though.  Darling Husband and I stayed at the Ritz on our wedding night.  We left the reception in our wedding clothes (me dress, him his military uniform) and the Ritz barely even blinked an eye.  We defniitely weren’t expecting anything (I’ve heard they’re notorious for not upgrading), but to show up on a Tuesday night, when it wasn’t busy, coming straight from our wedding, you would think they would have done something. lol

We told people – one place had a bottle of champagne/chocolates for us… we didn’t tell people at restaurants.  In retrospect:  DEFINITELY TELL THEM!!!  It’s the only time in your life you’ll be on your honeymoon.

Heck yeah, tell them!  What’s the worst they can do?  Say, “Congratulations!”?  Might as well give it a shot!

I don’t think it hurts to tell them but don’t expect anything. I worked at a 5 star/5 diamond hotel and we had a couple check in right after their wedding. She said, “we just got married” I smiled said “congratulations” and gave them their keys. She looked at me like I grew antlers and asked, “well don’t we get an upgrade?” Umm…nope.

I have heard book without saying anything and then when you are with a person to check in is when you start throwing the “H” word around. online or on the phone they may just congradulate you but a person a t a counter is more likely to upgrade you. (especially on flights and stuff)

I would mention something along the lines of “I am planning to book a stay/trip for our honeymoon.”

When my brother got married, he and my SIL stayed in a very nice hotel, but did not mention that it was their honneymoon, however one waitress asked them what they were doing while staying there or why they were there and they said it was their honneymoon. That evening, they were sent complimentary champagne and some other things by the hotel. It’s not huge, but definitely worth mentioning IMO 🙂

I have hears also, that if you tell the airline,  IF  they have room ,  you could get a free upgrade to either first class or business class.   obviously its only if the flight is going without those seats being booked. 

Anything is worth a try surely…..

We only used that for two things. The first was we went out to dinner the night after our wedding and we said “we got married last night!” and they gave us a bottle of champagne on the house and free desserts. It was awesome. Then Darling Husband told the people at the airline counter for check in that we were on our honeymoon and we got upgraded to first class.

I would say yes yes yes! I agree with PP- what’s the worst that could happen? They will just say congrats. But if you’re lucky you’ll get champagne, upgrades, etc. 🙂

@MrsPinkPeony: why didn’t you give them upgrades? do you think it’s just luck of the draw, if the concierge is in a good mood or if there is availability?

@Evie19: Pretty simple, we weren’t allowed to. It was a college job so I didn’t have any “power”. Plus it was a really expensive hotel to begin with and we had people stay and easily spend 30/40/50k for a week. The theory was why give someone something from free when you have 50 people who will pay for it.
