Pre-wedding getaway - thoughts?

Pre-wedding getaway - thoughts? Topic: Mini company business plan
July 17, 2019 / By Felicity
Question: My fiance & I have been planning our wedding for over a year now. Our total engagement will be just under 2 years. At different times things have gotten crazy or stressful or people have been hard to deal with. We know we cannot afford a honeymoon right after the wedding plus want to stay around our home to visit with the family that will be travelling to attend. I was thinking of us going away for a long weekend (3-4days) before the wedding just to be together and away from the craziness and planning. Also, he used to work for his Dad's small business and never really got normal vacation time. Over the past 3+ years we have only asked for time off to attend different family things (like going to Florida to see his Mom when she was ill; or travel time to attend a relative's wedding out of state). We live in PA and I was only thinking of taking him up to Maine, so its not like we would be going all that far. What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? A great idea for brides & grooms to have a mini-getaway together before the big day??? Definitely not going on a honeymoon right after the wedding (fiance starts his job beginning of march & we want to build up vacation time to go away for about a week so we are thinking Fall 2010 or Spring 2011 for our honeymoon). Our wedding is 10/31/09 so we would probably be looking to go in July or August (I want it to be warm during the days), or maybe September.

I think that sounds awesome. It will be a stress reliever before the day actually gets here, you can enjoy some one on one time and enjoy each others company. I say go for it, have fun and enjoy yourselves before you get married.

I am getting married at my church in Midwest city and having my reception at our community center in Midwest city. It is beautiful! They just renovated about a year ago. Also if you live in Oklahoma you can get married at the capital for free. My friend did and it was beautiful! You might also like La Bella wedding chapel in shawnee. My friends own it. It has an Italian vibe. Great for a smaller wedding!

If you definitely know that you will not be able to take a honeymoon right after the wedding, I say your pre-wedding getaway sounds like a great idea. You can go away for a few days, unwind, destress, and don't talk about the wedding: just concentrate on the two of you and spending time together. It sucks that your fiance hasn't had time off in 3 years, so this is your chance to make this getaway a memorable one. Maine is really great in the summer, you can take a lighthouse boat tour or whale watching cruise, eat lobsters, go to the beach, and just relax and have a great time. If you go after labor day (I think I remember that your wedding is in October from your previous questions), you can get much cheaper rates for better hotels with hot tubs, etc. (all the families with school-aged kids will be gone by then). Enjoy, have a great time, and happy wedding!

I was in the same situation when I got married last year. I didn't get a honeymoon because it would interfere with my husband's job/school and my job. We took off for a long weekend down to the Keys and it was the BEST thing we could have done! It gave us a chance to relax and be alone during an incredibly stressful time.

Maine sounds fantastic! It will be great to get away and remember the reason you are getting married- your love, pure and simple. I say have your Maid of Honor be on call for any wedding problems, and turn off your phones and just enjoy each other! And Maine in the Spring will be so fresh and inviting! I envy you. Have a great time.

I have a small family for my wedding as well.. We aren't going through near what you are.. bless your heart, but my family lives WAY to far to come, and is to broke. The only "family" I will have is my mother and father. DO NOT SETTLE! If you want that wedding have it! Its your day, and have your dream! Its hard, but you gotta.. I'm having the wedding I want and I have hardly any family coming.. so think its your day and you deserve it! When the dream wedding starts you won't think about how many family members you have there, just your soon to be husband, and your future. Good luck.

to maintain the group and not make bad memories i think i would class it up and do wine at 6 dollars a glass... no hard alcohol no variety...of alcohol...just white or red wine...and where the wine is sold...i think it should say the price will help you drink responsible....laugh... i think you need champpage and need to have one huge toast...that is all the alcohol you provide...so it is not your problem later... good luck best wishes vote for a best answer
