The other day my fiancee mentioned that he might keep our honeymoon a secret. Till the week before? Rehearsal dinner? Wedding day? Until we arrive at the airport gate? Needless to say I had some questions. What about getting passports? How will I know what to pack? I’ve told him that he at least has to give me a general setting (beach, mountains, city…) and that it might be a good idea to let my Maid/Matron of Honor know so she can make sure I don’t leave out anything important.
Is anyone else having a surprise honeymoon? If so, how much do you know?

We decided on the location together, but he is handling all the details. One less thing for me to worry about!

As of now, I’ve given him some suggestions but generally he has decision making control. When he took on this responsibility I told him that he also needs to uy me one appropriate dress and pack it for me because I don’t want to know until we are at the airport. Generally we are both interested in beach honemoon so that’s what I’ll pack for!

I always liked that option. it’s not likje they’re incapable of planning a trip. However, I dont like surprises and I can’t relinquish control that much. We have different ideas of what a vacation is sometimes b/c his family couldn’t afford to go on them when he was a kid. So, needles to say, our honeymoon was his first time at a resort like this

i let him have control over it, one less decision for me! but he told me what he was thinking about as he did it, and asked for my opinions. although i barely gave him any, i truley didn’t care, and we pretty much had the same idea, just relax on a beach somewhere.

He’s planning everything. Right now, his plan is to tell me when we get to the airport and I see my ticket. I already have a passport, so that’s not a problem. As far as packing goes, we’ll definitely be going somewhere beachy/tropical, so it shouldn’t be an issue. I’m sure if there is anything specific you need, he could tell you to pack it without giving anything away.

I love the idea of the groom planning a surprise honeymoon! One of my best friends is getting married in Oct and her FH is planning the honeymoon as a complete surprise…I don’t know how she manages not to go crazy trying to figure out where she’s going but I think it’s such a sweet idea 🙂

I’ve talked to my fiance about him planning the honeymoon. I’d like to know where we’re going, but not where we’re staying, what we’ll be doing, etc.
