Why couldn’t my brother find a woman like you? LOL


I think most people would be extremely grateful that you’re inviting them along and providing the lodging for them.  I’d hope they wouldn’t have a problem paying for anything they choose to do.  Just remember, it’s your honeymoon and you and your Mr. should spend some alone time together as well.

Thats VERY generous of you. As far as regretting it goes, I can’t really answer that since I don’t know your situation but I can share mine with you…

Fiance and I are taking a cruise to Bermuda for our honeymoon and we have discussed FI’s brother and SIL coming with us. We wouldn’t regret having them come for a number of reasons. 

1. Fiance and I live together (will have been for more than 6 years by the time our wedding rolls around). We’ve already done all of the things couples are supposed to do on their honeymoon. Only difference will be that we’re married.

2. Cruises are ALOT more fun with other people. Sure, Fiance and I will have a blast if we go solo but we’ll have an even better time if we have them there with us.

3. Cruise ships are BIG. We could easily get a cabin on one end of the boat and they on the other. If we don’t want to see them, we don’t have to see them. 

We’ve mentioned this idea to a few different people, all of whom have voiced some serious concerns with it (though they were all couples who didn’t even live together before getting married so they have a different view of the honeymoon than we do). Either way we look at it, our honeymoon is still going to be romantic because its our honeymoon. 

If we do choose to have them come along, as long as Fiance and I can have a few dinners and atleast one port day alone, that will really be all we need.

It wouldn’t be my choice of honeymoons tbh, but if that sounds good to you then I’m pretty sure you won’t get arguements from your families!  Personally I wanted my honeymoon to be Anton and Teri private and alone time.  ๐Ÿ™‚
