- Wedding: April 2010
Last weekend, Steve and I booked our honey moon! Originally, I didn’t have a preference on a honeymoon, and told Steve I didn’t care if we went on one right away. Since Steve and I are paying for the vast majority of the wedding ourselves, I was concerned we would not be able to afford a get away. 🙁
Steve has traveled a TON and has been all over the world, so this was a part of our wedding that was really important to him. I am so glad he stuck to his guns and we agreed that we would have a honeymoon, even though neither one of us knew how we’d be able to swing it.
(fast forward a few weeks)
I was talking to an amazing friend about the wedding, our plans and all the things we wanted to do. This person listened to everything I said and then suddenly left the room. I wasn’t sure what was happening until they came back and handed me a check that was more than enough to pay for a honeymoon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am seriously overwhelmed by the generosity of the amazing people in my life, and the blessings of God that Steve and I are experiencing….so many things have happened that seemed impossible. All my hopes and dreams, even those things that I secretly wanted, but believed wouldn’t happen, are happening. This process has taught me that people that love me will support me and do whatever they can to make this day the best day ever! THANK YOU to everyone who has encouraged and loved me through the good days and bad. You are the BEST.

What about you, how did you decide where to go on your honeymoon? Did you include the cost in your overall wedding budget?
