We’re going to have a brunch/lunch. Nothing too big hopefully, but something to bring the immediate families together again.

We are having brunch at the hotel (reception site) with our Out of Town guests before they leave. Then we will most likely come back to my parents house, open our gifts, relax, finish packing, and spend time with the two sets of parents at my parents house. We leave at like 7am on Monday morning for St. Lucia!

We were so tired! We slept in really late in our honeymoon suite, then packed up the car, and went home. Some friends came over much later and we all just chilled. Then we went to sleep early! 🙂

We’ll pretty much be in the car all day. 🙁 I wanted to start our road-trip honeymoon by making the 3-1/2 hour drive to the stop closest to us and save the long drive home for the last day so that we could start the day late and lazy-like, but Fiance insisted we get the 8-hour driving leg over with the first day. I HATE being a passenger in a car for long rides, and Fiance hates letting anyone else drive… it is going to be a real test of our marriage, that first day after the wedding. 😉

We’re probably going to spend the day after our wedding with our families and out of town guests.  There will most likely be a light brunch at my parents’ house so everyone can come and go as they like.  And hopefully plenty of mimosas!!!  Laughing

Our wedding is a Saturday evening.  On Sunday, we’re having a day after brunch at our resort.  Then we’ll be traveling 2 hours back home to our families, probably recouping for the afternoon there and opening some gifts before traveling the extra our to our home that evening.  We leave for our honeymoon Monday morning.

Relaxing at home and then maybe leaving for a mini moon.

I think we are going to plan to spend the day after visiting with family and friends and then leave on Monday for the honeymoon. Flights will have a lot to do with our decision but we want to take advantage of the time we will have with Out of Town guests, just not too early in the morning, lunch maybe.

I think the day or two after will be our re-cooping time. I believe my parents will hold a little cook-out for the Out of Town guests and I am just going to relax. As of now, we are not going on a honeymoon so we will just hangout and relax.

@happilywaiting, no it was not a laid back day at all! Not sure how opening gifts, getting food, buying books and sunscreen is supposed to take all day, but somehow it was a very long day for us. I ended up packing the wrong swimsuit bottom in my rush.

I didn’t relax until we got on our plane. Then I crashed on his shoulder. Maybe I left a little drool there Innocent

We’ll be getting up WAY too early on the day after the wedding for the 9am day-after brunch.  I’m guessing that after the brunch we will go to my parents house for a while to spend some time with our guests that are coming from Ireland then drive home that evening.

Our wedding is Saturday and we leave for the honeymoon on Tuesday morning so Monday will be our crazy packing day.
