    Personally, I wouldn’t want a honeymoon with others. Why not plan a cruise and do a Disney trip a year or so down the road with family?

    My DH’s parents wanted us to go on a cruise with them in the spring, which is when we are planning our honeymoon. We aren’t going – sure we wouldn’t be with them all the time, but I want to be able to enjoy my Darling Husband and not be dealing with family during that one special trip.

    While sort of discussing our honeymoon (nothing planned at all yet), Fiance mentioned that if we went somewhere for 2 weeks, we could have 1 week with just the two of us and the 2nd with another couple. Maybe you guys can try that?

    haha to be honest it wouldn’t matter WHERE I was going…a honeymoon is a special time to have with just eachother after the whirlwind of visiting with everyone at the wedding…so I’d want just us.  The way I see it is every big vacation we’ve taken is always with people, and even though we go to sleep in the room alone it never felt like we were on vacation by ourselves.

    If you’d have fun with people there then I’d say go for it…but there’s no way I ever would agree to it Smile  Take a family trip for your 1-year anniversary.

    I don’t even like going on vacation with people other than my husband, but on my Honeymoon? Never.

    @Earlybride: If you were doing a cruise I would say yes becuase they get really boring, when you are at sea. Fiance and I met people and hung out with them on our last trip to keep sane.

    But to Disney? I could only handle 2 days of Disneyland, there are two parks. Anymore and we might go crazy/. lol

    Everyone should do whatever makes them happy, but I personally would never ever consider sharing my honeymoon with anyone other than my husband!

    we did this, actually – similar situation. 

    when we were planning our wedding, about a year prior, my grandfather gifted the entire family a vacation to disney world for 5 d/6 n. however..we then find out the date is the same week as we’d planned our honeymoon. okay, well this vacation is already paid for, so now what?

    we could certainly not afford to fly down two separate times (once in july, and once in august) and we were forced into honeymooning in august because of work conflicts. so, we went down a week early – figuring a week alone, a week with family. then my parents went down a few days early – and the last two days were spent with them (universal and male golfing day). 

    so of 10 days, we had 3, and i was sick one of them. 

     

    but you know what? we were happily married, together, and having fun. we will go on another vacation maybe this coming summer just the two of us, but that particular vacation just was what it was. looking back, I do wish we had opted for more alone time, but it was still fun.

     

    just make sure you take time for yourselves.

    I would! We’re going to Paris for a few days first, and then over to London for the Olympics. We’ve been trying to recruit friends to come to the London part of the trip with us! Paris will be just the two of us, for sure.

    Are your only options Disney or a cruise? What about going to a really luxurious adult’s only hotel? It sounds to me like you’re not overly keen on Disney (and being brutally honest, and without meaning to cause offence, this would not be my ideal honeymoon), and your OH only seems to want to go if you go as a group; and personally, I’d have an issue with that. For me, a honeymoon is a chance to get away, as a newly-wed couple, to relax after the stress of the wedding, together. No way would I want to go away with friends or family for our honeymoon. Like others have said, you could always go away as a group for your 1 year anniversary.

    But it depends on what you want as a couple. It sounds though like you both have different ideas perhaps of what a honeymoon should be, so I’d sit down and think about what your dream honeymoon would include; does it include theme parks, or would you prefer a romantic city or beach break? If you really want to go to Disney, and you think you’d be bored just the two of you, then it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks; but if this is something your OH wants to do and you’re not keen on then be honest with him.

    I wouldn’t want guests on my honeymoon.  I think it might get a little awkward.  Then, you’d spend half your time worrying if they’re having fun, etc.  You only get one honeymoon.  If you go back for an anniversary, invite people to go with you then.

    Isn’t the whole point of a honeymoon to be alone as a couple? There is no way I’m letting anyone come with us and we will be in limited contact for the duration of the trip.

    @Earlybride: We had a really simple, two day bed and breakfast honeymoon, so it might be different for you, but the highlight of our trip was just being alone and relaxed. I would have really missed that if people came with us.
