- Wedding: May 2012
My family has been trying to plan a family vacation only the dates weren’t matching up during the preferred time (Jan-Mar). So my mother emailed out some new options: Thanksgiving this year, or next year, or…2 weeks after my wedding (and a year after the wedding). Seriously? You want to plan a family vacation over my honeymoon time?
Not to mention, who wants to go to Mexico in June?
Now, granted, we told them we were thinking of a delayed honeymoon – but that was because as we told them with the (then planned) family vacation in Feb, we didn’t think we’d be able to get away at the end of May/beg of June (nor did we want to blow all of our vacation immediately), so we were trying to be accommodating. [ETA: We were very clear when we told them we thought we might do a delayed honeymoon, the main reason was because the family vacation would be too close to it.] But I’m not willing to be THAT accommodating. If we’re on vacation, it will be just us, thank you very much.
Sigh. I’m trying to avoid responding to it immediately with exactly what I think.
