    We are paying. Then again, we are also paying for most of the wedding ourselves so we weren’t really expecting anyone else to pay for our honeymoon.

    Originally we thought maybe FIs parents would pay for it since they paid for both of his sisters’. Then we realized that we would need FIs parents help with paying for the wedding so now we are paying for the honeymoon ourselves.

    I’m right there with you. From the South & my dad’s paying for the wedding & his the rehearsal dinner. We are paying for our honeymoon though & it’s already paid for!! It’s just a simple 4 night cruise, though 🙂

    We’re asking for money instead of gifts to use towards our honeymoon. We’re not actually asking but if someone asks what we want, we’re just saying cash towards our honeymoon or getting our parents to tell people.

    99% chance we’ll be footing the bill, along with all the other wedding expenses.

    Oops, I should have voted “other” as the hubs and I have not gone on a honeymoon yet and we have been married 5 months. No minimoon either. Anyway, when we do go on our trip it will be paid entirely by us.

    I hope people don’t get mad, but I quite honestly do not know why anyone expects parents to pay for their honeymoon. I didn’t even consider any other option than that we’d be paying. I guess maybe it’s tradition or something?

    We paid for it, but cash from wedding gifts ending up covering it, so we kinda broke even!

    I don’t get it either. Having a Honeymoon is a choice, and honestly,I’ve never heard of it being a tradition where anyone pays for it other than the bride & groom.

    Yea we will definitely be paying for it. I didn’t know that grooms family was “supposed” to pay for a honeymoon until I heard about that tradition on the ‘bee

    Agreed, I never heard of anyone traditionally paying for the honeymoon… then again, most traditions of people paying for are over… at least for everyone I know.

    We’re paying for ours, but my parents helped with some wedding expenses, and it’s looking like some $$ from a deceased relative will help with the wedding too.  I would LOVE if Future In-Laws offered, but I don’t think they’re going to.  So we’ll pay for about 1/3 of the wedding and our honeymoon. 

    Though!  I’m still hoping I’ll win a free trip or something.  Hey, a girl can dream!

    I guess I never expected anyone to pay for my honeymoon, but I can’t say it wouldn’t have been nice. But my parents are paying for our wedding so we are very lucky so we are happily paying for our honeymoon.

    In my circle of friends it seems as though the grooms parents paid for all of their honeymoon. When I tell people that FI’s parents aren’t giving us a dime they are shocked. When my brother got married her parents paid for the wedding and mine paid for the rehersal dinner, their honeymoon, and helped them furnish their house. But my inlaws have more money than god and never helped their daughters with their wedding so I wasn’t too shocked.
