@QueenOfSerendip:  It’s only for three days, and at the end of the vacation, right?   That’s not that big of a deal.  It’ll be fine.

@QueenOfSerendip:  I went to a destination wedding last year and all 30 of us stayed at the same resort as the Bride and Groom. It was honestly a great time for all of us – including the bride and groom. When they wanted to get away or eat at a different restaurant they did. We only were there with them for 5 days and they spent the remaining 5 days alone. Since you only will have them there for 3 days I think it will be fine! Try not to stress it too much .. I’m sure they’ll respect that it’s your honeymoon.

It only has to be awkward if you make it awkward. I’m sure they realize this is your honeymoon and won’t be scheduling joint dinners and following you around or anything like that. You’ll survive. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just enjoy the lovely time with your new husband!

I wouldn’t make a big deal over this at all.  Just because your mother and sister are staying in the same resort doesnt’ mean they’re staying in the same room.  You can plan to spend as much time with them as you want— which includes planning to spend no time with them at all, and just bumping into them in the elevator.

And if they get too nosey I would tell them that we were going back to our room for some more private time and hope they get the idea.  Maybe those last three days you will be glad to have some dinner company, maybe you won’t.  I would definitely make sure that mom knows those three days are still your honeymoon and you don’t plan to spend them with anybody but your new husband and you would greatly appreciate it if she understands and tries to stay out of your way.

Unfortunately, since you invited them to come all this way, I think you are sort of stuck. To avoid this happening to us, Fiance and I are switching resorts ourselves after the wedding to make sure that no one from our wedding group will be on our honeymoon. Is it a possibility for you to change resorts if you (understandably!) don’t want to spend any part of your honeymoon with your mom?

It’s only 3 days, and it’s a big resort.  You guys don’t have to hang out.  You may not even see them.  Please don’t let 3 days ruin your wedding/honeymoon.

I’m sure it will be fine – it’s only 3 days, it could be way worse! Tell them straight up you do not want to see them whatsoever.  Then, do whatever you can to avoid them at all costs haha.  Unfortunately, this is pretty typical when honeymooning at the same resort as your Destination Wedding.

Just saw your update – why don’t you and Fiance move to a different resort then?

This is kind of the risk you run with a Destination Wedding.

She knows it’s your honeymoon….I’m sure she expects you will be off with your new hubby. And those resorts are pretty big. Don’t worry.

@QueenOfSerendip:  Well that’s better then you thought before! At least you will get some privacy after the wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m so sorry you are going through this but 3 days won’t be so bad. The resorts are big enough you may not see each other. you will absolutely love Couples!

Talk to her about how you feel. Maybe you can talk about where you plan to be those days and ask if she can avoid it.
