Definitely would never go on a honeymoon with another couple. Trust me, you’ll want alone time just to spend with the hubby after the madness that is having a wedding/reception.

Mez03:  Huh?  I flew (within my home country) for our Honeymoon and did most definitely NOT need a passport.

Kacie209:  OP, DH and I made our Honeymoon a combo trip to a friend’s Destination Wedding.  We spent 2 of 5 days with his friends and it was great!  Not that the alone time is good, but sometimes it’s more fun to do things in a group!

Kacie209:  I absolutely wouldn’t do it. Your honeymoon should be taken alone.  HOWEVER – if you were to do it, I would obviously get separate rooms and make sure you planned activities/dinners/time where you would just be with your hubby. 

As for the passport thing, they are so super easy to get (just have to go apply) that I wouldn’t use that to rule out where you go…

mchitt329:  This is my response to those whom were confused as to why I said what I said. I didn’t know you could fly to places without a passport even if you are in the same country. I guess because its highly stressed here (in Canada) to fly with a passport that its a very uncommon thing in my area that people don’t fly without a passport even though they are staying within the same country. I guess because I live in a city that boarders the USA, I’m so use to just using my passport all the time from crossing the boarder that I tend to forget what a passport is actually needed for when it comes to travelling.

Kacie209:  We did a destination wedding and needed 4 witnesses so we asked my brother & his gf, & DH asked his brother & his wife. It was nice to hang out with everyone for a few days, but I will say I was so glad to see them leave after the wedding & get to do our own thing without having to check in with everyone. Maybe you could stagger your trips a bit so ya’ll are there together for a few days, and alone for a few days?

For our honeymoon we went on an Mediterranean cruise with our BFFs. It was AWESOME! There are thousands of other people on a cruise, on the boat and in the escursions, it’s not like you would be really ALONE anyway. We did all the land escursions with them but only met up for dinner like half the time and the days at sea we spent by ourselves. We had a perfect balance of being romantic honeymooners and having fun with friends 🙂

For our honeymoon we went to a holiday park in Germany with my parents and my BFF.  I figured that it would have sucked for them to be over 3 weeks and I’d really only get to see them 1 week (because lets face it, time leading up to the wedding isn’t quality time).

It was pretty awesome.  Hubby and I had our quality time at the sauna complex and then we had a blast with my parents and bff.

Kacie209:  I have noticed an increase in honeymoons taken with other couples/friends and for the life of me I can’t understand it. My cousin and her friend accompanied another couple on their European honeymoon and I found this absolutely bizarre! Our honeymoon was a blast just the two of us and was a great way to really focus on each other and bond as husband and wife during that first week of our marriage. Having someone there would have changed the mood entirely and certainly would have changed the one on one dynamic that honeymoons are really intended to generate.

While I think vacationing with friends and family is a blast I think for a honeymoon it is best with just the couple. Just my two cents.

It sounds fun.  You have your whole life to travel together.  Who says you can’t go on a romantic trip with just the two of you for an anniversary down the road.  Or maybe for the best of both worlds, go right after or before them and have half the trip overlap.

Our honeymoon is the one trip that I would never share! I also would want to focus the trip on our new marriage and status as newlyweds and I think that going on someone’s anniversary trip would take away from the whole honeymoon celebration. I don’t think it would overshadow it.. but I don’t think I would want to be focusing on a celebration that wasn’t mine if that makes sense. I know that sounds super selfish aha.

I think it would really depend on how much of seperate space/time I get. I wouldn’t share a condo with them, but I would go to the same resort. I would also make sure they understand that you aren’t going to be spending 100% of your time with them. I have done a lot of travling with family lately, and I just watch my temper fray further and further if I don’t have my own space. Not just my own room in a house or a condo, but a space that no one but my Fiance and I can enter.
