Idk bee, I don’t really see how what he is asking is out of line. Its not like he is saying he won’t go at all, you still get four days and then a whole nother honeymoon later on.

How would you feel if the shoe was on the other foot?

We’re doing this. 4 days (we’ll go Wed-Sun the week after the wedding). and then we’re planning on a taking a week in Jan 2018 to go somewhere.

I get way more time than my Fiance so I’ll just take that entire week off.

It’s really not that big of a deal. Use the time to sleep. πŸ™‚

I don’t think it’s really fair to ask him to use up all his days for one honeymoon when you are getting two trips – he should be left a couple days to use for other things.

Yeah, we need to save up some money for a week somewhere. and FI’s job is busiest in the summer months so his company really frowns upon more than a couple days off at a time.

and our 4 days will be very unfancy. Perhaps Cape Cod or maybe Bermuda if I can find a decent price on something.

kelsea14 :  We are doing the same! A “Mini-moon”, maybe a 4-5 hour trip south of us to a cute little cabin with a private hottub and sight seeing. But come next January or February when it’s freezing and we want to get away to some place warm we’re going to take our official honeymoon. I have a lot more time off than my Fiance too, so I am actually taking the whole week of the wedding off and the few days after for our mini-moon. We live together and I wanted to still getaway even if it wasn’t for two weeks, just to enjoy being married. I think you will still have a good time even if it’s just for four days!

kelsea14 :  Date twins – we are also getting married 9/16 this year! I’m in the opposite situation as you guys though, I want the shorter honeymoon because I am already taking a few days off before the wedding. It’s not about time off availability, just figuring out what works best. We still plan to take an annual vacation going forward, but I want the honeymoon to be just relaxing and stress free after all this wedding planning!

Isn’t this what is meant by a First World problem?

Me & hub left for Inner Harbor Baltimore MD on Sunday, and got home Thursday. It was long enough.

I think everyone is different.  I can’t stand being on vacation more than 4 days.  After 4 days of adventure or relaxation I am ready to return home.  The difference between 4-7 days is so minimal.  Pick and choose your battles.
