Honeymoon Envy

I’m starting to have serious regrets about putting our honeymoon off until next summer.  The problems are:

1.  I am in grad school, graduate in January

2.  I am starting a new job Sep. 8 or so, so it’s already a stretch to take a few days off only 3 WEEKS LATER.

At the beginning of the planning process, I didn’t see a need for a honeymoon.  Hey, we see each other every day, the big part of this whole thing is the wedding, right?

Now I’m realizing why people go on honeymoons, to escape the insanity that the wedding has become.  You’re just………. tired.  Tired of the attention, of the constant “wedding updates,” and lately, crying over credit card bills.   I’ve already hit the point where I don’t have to open boxes when they get to the house.  I have no problem waiting for B.  And this is from the girl who rips open her birthday gifts.

I read a lot of wedding blogs, 6mostly Chicago girls.

and here’s a new one! A Wonderfully Witty Wedding.

and these girls all go on honeymoons, or are planning to right after the wedding.  Jealous.

Oh honeymoon, I look forward to you in 2010.

  1. the honeymoon RULES. best part of the whole ordeal. make sure you book it now – even if it’s not until next year. so many people “say” they are going to do it and never do…

  2. You have a lot on your plate. I couldn’t imagine planning a wedding and honeymoon while still in grad school. (Well, I can’t imagine being in grad school again. Ha!) Plus you’re starting a new job. Wow! Just make sure you plan the honeymoon so you do take it next year. You will need the break! Best of luck!

  3. what if you just did a long weekend, like 3-4 days, somewhere in the US to just get away? Like Scottsdale, Key West, or San Fran? Travelocity and Travelzoo have good package deals, you could probably do hotel/flight for less than $600.
