The manfriend just called me at work and let me know he was looking at the weather in Cancun where we will be spending our honeymoon in two weeks. Only, we may not. Why? Oh, because there’s a freaking tropical storm headed to it. The day we are supposed to arrive and several days after there are to be “torrential rains”. Manfriend says we should probably think about moving our trip a few months from now- maybe December or January, and we can just take a few days off and go somewhere else.
Now, ladies, I know this logically makes sense. And I don’t want to go in the middle of a storm. But am I crazy for being insanely dissapointed? This is our honeymoon! The only time it we will be freshly married. And then, “just make it a long weekend?” I feel the bridezilla asshole underneath my diplomacy groaning to be set free.
Please ladies, tell me I’m just lucky to be marrying the guy I absolutely love and that all this extra shit doesn’t really matter? Because right now, it feels pretty important even though I know it’s not. We will still be married in the end, regardless of how it goes down.
Edit: While it may sound like I’m angry I’m not. I’ve gone through about 20 tissues thus far.

Oh no! Well, if you don’t go on your honeymoon immediately after your wedding, you’ll still have something to look forward to for the next few months even with the wedding being over with. Also, is there any chance of the two of you simply going away for a few days to somewhere more local? Maybe nowhere fancy, but somewhere that isn’t home so you still feel like you got away for a few days?
I know it isn’t exactly what you hoped for, but it may be nice to have something to still look forward to after the wedding..

@missfrillycoat: Unless you’re virgins, it’s really just a vacation. Why doesn’t “manfriend” want to go to Cancun in January? We delayed our honeymoon a month, IMO it’s nice to be around after the wedding to write thank yous, put gifts away and settle back into normal life!

You could switch the trip to somewhere else tropical like Hawaii if you want to go now.

We aren’t going on our honeymoon until October or November (we are getting married in August). Its actually good for us because we will have lingering family, and organization to handle. Plus, we have longer to look forward to our trip!

Yah I would avoid this time of year in the carribean. My family go every year in December-January and only once I think in many many years have they ever seen bad weather. It’s the best time to go. I would put it off. Just book a couple of nights at a local hotel for a “honeymoon” experience, and then have a vacation later on when the weather is better.
