- Wedding: October 2016 - Waldorf Astoria, Orlando
In your situation, I would actually bring your daughters. I opened the thread with the expectation of saying “No kids!” but after reading the details it sounds like your daughters should be involved! If your FH is your children’ biological father (or has been in the picture their entire lives) the wedding is about all of you uniting as a full family. I think adding them to the honeymoon would be a very sweet gesture. I would, however, try to find a place that allows you to get two seperate rooms next to one and other with a sharing door in between… Or a suite with two bedrooms. You will
want some privacy!
EDIT: Just saw your post about your decision. Yay! I’m excited for you all! I made the decision to host my out of town family at Walt Disney World to celebrate my wedding. I chose that location specifically to accomodate my nieces, nephew and younger cousins. So I understand your decision. As far as people nay-saying the location…. Only you can decide or know what is right for your girls. You know their level of maturity and you know what bothers you as their mother. At 14 years old I could handle the situation PPs have described about the resort without any extra thought. I probably could at 11, too. People grow up at different rates. Just because they’ll see something doesn’t mean they’ll participate.. Or can. In fact, consider it an educational tool. If I saw a naked, drunk twenty something year old girl getting sloppy or sexual in public.. It would be a very realistic example of how not to act or how to limit your alcohol intake when you’re old enough.

Do your kids want to come? (I know at 13 I wanted to avoid spending time withh my parents at all cost :)). If so, take them. If not, let them be.

Oh, they want to come. As I previously posted, my older daughter wants us all to “look great naked” so we’re actually looking onto workout videos we can all do!

I wouldn’t, you get one honeymoon and I would want the full honeymoon experience, that means no kids and no clothes.

So everyone can look great naked. Bahaha! Sounds like y’all will have a blast.

Oh we will. We’re always clothed at home and haven’t seen one another naked since they were old enough to dress themselves, so this will be interested. Of course, there are other things we are doing. We have a butterfly farm and even a zoo on the list.

I see you made your decision but I’ve been to St Martin and have to echo the others that it’s not the most family-friendly destination. Plus, there’s not a lot for tween/teens to do, except going to the beach. There are also a lot of people that prey on tourists so it’s not like you and your husband can do one thing and the girls another.
I don’t get the whole naked thing (honestly, it’s kind of creepy).

I’m afraid I have to agree.
