- Wedding: June 2012
My fiance and I are getting married in September but we had already been planning a trip to Puerto Rico in June since before we were engaged. We had initially decided not to have a “honeymoon” at all because we will both be in the middle of a semester of college when we get hitched so we can’t exactly take off for a week. Plus we determined it was unnecessary. We have already traveled and seen the world together on numerous occasions during our relationship. We don’t really need that symbolic moment of taking off together to make our marriage feel official.
We work in the hospitality industry and were able to secure two free rooms for one week in June at a gorgeous Hilton resort in San Juan. It was a lucky break even for us. We booked the second room for my mom and stepfather because we figured we should take advantage of the perks of our industry as much as possible and while they are free why not. I said we can consider the trip to Puerto Rico as sort of a honeymoon before the wedding but my fiance doesnt agree. He says that you can’t call it a honeymoon if someone’s future in-laws are coming too. I assured him that we don’t have to even hang out with my parents on the trip and that even with them there we wouldn’t be required to act any differently around eachother than ususal (we aren’t one of those wildly romantic couples that can’t keep their hands off eachother). Is he right, is it too weird to call it a honeymoon? I was just trying to get him off the hook so he doesnt have to plan another vacation just for us down the road. Regardless we are going to have a great time in the Caribbean and all we have to pay for is airfare!
