Second Honeymoons…

My husband and I have talked about renewing our vows. We missed out doing it on our 10-year anniversary. So I thought about doing it on our 20th wedding anniversary. Yet, that seems to far away. So if we decide to do it sooner, we could renew our vows on our 15th anniversary. Then I had the dilemma of where to do it.

My husband and I got married in Gatlinburg, TN, in a beautiful wedding chapel, with just our best friends, almost eleven years ago. It was a private ceremony, with a weekend honeymoon in a cabin. Don’t get me wrong, it was very nice. We had a wonderful time. But we really wished we could have been afforded the time to take a nice honeymoon.

So I was thinking we could do a destination wedding. It would be nice to get married on a beach in Hawaii or the Bahamas with family and friends there. I found a site to get unique groomsmen gifts, and I know exactly what I would want to get my bridesmaids.

However, I’m not sure how feasible it would be to get everyone to a destination wedding.

Maybe we could just skip the vow renewals altogether and just take a second honeymoon. Okay, I think for our 15th wedding anniversary we should do just that. Cody will be old enough that I wouldn’t worry about leaving him for a week.

Well, I think I’ve just talked myself into it. Tee-hee.

Have you or have you ever thought about doing a destination wedding? If so, where would you like to do it?


  1. Oh that photo looks so inviting, I would be happy with a first honeymoon. My husband and I have been married 14 1/2 years but we have never been on a honeymoon.

  2. I had never really thought about doing a destination wedding till I toured a resort in the Riviera Maya this past summer — it was AMAZING and their wedding packages were fantastic. I would TOTALLY do something like that now.

  3. We’re going to renew our vows for our 10 year anniversary (3 more years to go), and I totally plan on having a second honeymoon.

  4. My husband and I haven’t had our first honeymoon, but we’re hoping that we can next year. 🙂

  5. My husband and I never went on an official Honeymoon. We both worked a lot back then, but hopefully one day we’ll go on one.

  6. Our honeymoon was at a beach cottage in the fall, and we only spent one night without a child with us…but it was still wonderful. I wanted to renew our vows at 10 years…but that came really fast!

  7. We honeymooned in Gatlinburg and planned to do a tropical all-inclusive for our 10th anniversary. Didn’t plan on being 9 months pregnant on our 10th anniversary though! Maybe for #15.

  8. Renewing your vows is a great idea. Doing it in a romantic place like this just adds to the moment

  9. I haven’t had a first honeymoon so I’d settle for that!

  10. I would have loved to go to Italy for my wedding but it wasn’t in the budget. We never went on a honeymoon either but we hope to someday. It’s been 3 years so I guess it would just be called a vacation at this point!

  11. I need a first honeymoon! The night i got married we had 2 kids that no one could babysit, i was 8 m onths preggo and my husband was sick out of both ends! oh so romantic! 😉

  12. Second honeymoon on your 15th and renew your vows on the 20th. That is a great plan!

  13. We will be married for 10 years this coming February and are going on an official honeymoon finally LOL. We stayed in a local hotel when we got married but it wasn’t really a honeymoon b/c family was all in town so we spent our tiem with them LOL
