For me, our honeymoon was a time to destress, relax, and celebrate that we just got married. It’s not something I would have wanted to do before the wedding.

But I think it’s fine to just call it a vacation!

I would just call it vacation. As Artbee said, the point of a honeymoon is to celebrate your marriage.

Its really “just” a vacation, trust me you are still going to want at least a mini-moon after the wedding to destress and enjoy eachothers company.

I think rather than calling it a honeymoon, you need to call it a vacation…  Honeymoons are after the wedding…  But there’s nothing that says you can’t go on a vacation before the wedding and then go on a honeymoon sometime after the wedding… That way you’ll still have a honeymoon to look forward to after the wedding!

I’ve been to the Bahamas a LOT, but never on a cruise.  I think it’s a wonderful idea.

Thank you for doing whatever you are doing in Afghanistan. We appreciate what you’re doing and are looking forward to when all of you can come home!!!

@kissandweesha:I say go for it. But make sure you check out the weather. We are also doing a cruise honeymoon but going in Decmeber. Huricane/storm season for most cruise destinations is May-November

I think it’s perfectly fine to have a honeymoon before the wedding. A lot of couples postpone theirs and I don’t see why having it before is any different. You can think of it as celebrating the wedding to come! With your schedule, I think it’s perfect to go on the cruise and being able to save on airefare too – it’s just perfect!

When vacay days aren’t so flexible, I say celebrate when you can. When you look back in a few years, the important thing is you got to go. Magic is what you make of it Smile 

Congrats!

@kissandweesha: If it’s before the wedding, I would think it’s just a vacation. Sounds awesome though. You found a cruise that leaves from VA? That’s awesome. We want to take a cruise for our honeymoon, but I can’t fly without having a major panic attack. I was hoping to be able to drive to a port and VA isn’t that far!
