Hmm...(27 years ago) after the ceremony (Judge, Mom, Dad, baby brother, Shrek and I) we met my Grandmother at a Mexican restaurant. Then we went back to Mom and Dad's house and we slept in sleeping bags under the Christmas tree.

Our second ceremony, with a preacher (the middle stepson), was in my stepson's back yard with the whole kid side of the family there. We spent the night there. Later in our vacation Shrek caught pneumonia...fun times.

I finally got my Honeymoon about two years ago when we went to Whitefish, MT and stayed in a full service lodge on the lake for three days.

Nice but next time I'll do it with a different husband
Not a bad idea, Merlot, to switch out husbands occasionally....

Margi, we stayed at the Kauai Sheraton on Poipu beach as well!

First husband, honeymooned in Cape Canaveral, FL. He was there for business and had been diagnosed on our wedding day with mono. He spent every day at meetings. The rest of the time was either at dinner somewhere or resting. Need I say more. That marriage didn't last. Surprised?

Then...Buck and I met. Magic. We married during early evening in a lovely stone historic house, built in the 1700s owned by the county, then drove to an awesome inn in Shepherdstown, West Virginia for a fabulous and relaxing honeymoon. it was lovely and, as long as we lived in the Washington, DC area, we went back every year on our anniversary for a few day's stay...in the same room as the one in which we honeymooned. We were together 32 years before he died.

Now...it's Glenn and me. We met for our first date at a downtown gazebo, then had a wonderful authentic Mexican lunch in a restaurant that was downstairs of a bed-and-breakfast, also owned by the restaurateur.

We were married, on a lovely October day outside in the gazebo, and as a surprise for me, Glenn had arranged for us to honeymoon in the bed-and-breakfast above the Mexican restaurant. It was sweet, thoughtful and romantic of him.

Steve and I had our honeymoon at a little seaside town, it is one of my favourite places, so relaxing, tranquil and scenic
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

Romantic I am.
Snap Queen, we only got married as an aid to keeping M in the country.That started a 4 year battle with the home office.I was told as a British Subject that I had no right to marry the woman I love and live together in the country I love.I thought bollocks to that Home Office bring it on.I was then quite a prom member of the Labour Party and still had a few renegade MP friends like Dr B Iddon(a prominent back bench anti iraq war firebrand) who help me to victory.We could not leave the UK for a honeymoon as our re-entry would be challenged.
I was married by a judge, I should have asked for a jury.

First marriage: A week in Portland, Maine. Spent a couple of days playing golf, went camping, sight seeing, etc.

Second marriage: got married on Christmas Eve. We had the license for about a month. No date set. Was busy wrapping presents, getting the turkey stuffed, etc. Very busy. All of a sudden he shows up in the doorway to the kitchen. "Ready to go get married?" Changed into a dress first husband had bought for me, called upstairs to two friends to act as witnesses, grabbed my oldest child, and off to the Mariner's Minister. Came back home, changed my clothes, went back into the kitchen, he fell asleep on the couch and stayed there for the night. I finished getting ready for Christmas. Fell asleep about 4:30 a.m. Kids woke us up early. Merry Christmas everybody.

Got married at 11:00 a.m. with my brothers, parents, and the Minister present, had a nice lunch at a swanky restaurant, and then I drove my hubby to the airport in WPG--he flew back to New Brunswick, I went drove back to MN and went back to NB a few days later. We were in University and that was the only way I could stay in Canada after my student visa expired. We spent 6 weeks camping that summer in West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and other locales in between.
