Ok so here is our deal. My Fiance and I do not really have the money to take ourselves on a honey moon and I’m not sure that is how that is really supposed to work anyway. We just bought a house and and just can not do it for ourselves. No one has really said much about it. I do know however my Future Sister-In-Law was married last June and Future Father-In-Law payed for them to go to Paris. My brother was Married 2 years ago and My dad Sent them to the Keys….So I guess my question is, should I expect a honeymoon?

Your parents/ future in-laws seam very genorous! I wouldn’t unless someone said something to you.

i would never “expect” a honeymoon to be paid for…. that’s just a bad omen.
you don’t have to go on a honeymoon right away…. we are getting married in September and honeymooning in February or March when we have the money

Definitely don’t expect a honeymoon… you’re just setting yourself up for disappointment. That being said, the wedding is now about 4 months away.. if you haven’t heard anything yet, i’d guess no one is giving you a honeymoon. Sorry 🙁

I always thought the couple pays for their own honeymoon unless someone chooses to give one as a gift. I wouldn’t expect someone to give one to you, but if someone does, that’ll be very generous! Maybe you could just make plans for a smaller, closer to home honeymoon and if someone surprises you later, then you’ll be happily surprised.

I wouldn’t expect one since no one’s mentioned it BUT if you have a good relationship with your dad, you could ask him. I know with my relationship with my mom I’d be comfortable asking that question. I wouldn’t bring it up to the in laws though just because they aren’t really your parents.

I never even thought about people paying for our honeymoon… but then again we’re totally on our own financially for the wedding as well so maybe I’m a bit skewed there. Just ask your dad and see what he says but don’t be disappointed if he can’t/won’t send you on a honeymoon.

We’re planning on honeymooning a few months after our November wedding. A few family members have hinted at cash gifts “for the honeymoon” but we’re not counting on anything and definitely not book anything unless we have the dollars in hand. If we get the cash, it’s Hawaii, and if not, it’s a weekend at a B&B we like down by the wineries.
