Getting Married!
 
Well, after years and years of the single life, I have finally found the woman I plan to marry. We set a date this past weekend - October 20, 2012. We are giving ourselves a good year to plan & save money! Boy, do I need to save too! Let's just say that PB&J sandwich I had for lunch is a distant memory now! ;-)

Anyways, we want to do a Caribbean cruise for our honeymoon. Anywhere except for the Bahamas. She's been there quite a bit, and even though I have never had the chance to cruise to the Bahamas, I definitely want to experience a new place with her for the first time. Any advice on the cruise would be most helpful.

P.S. I have already trained her on not scheduling stuff during Redskins games. I give her a copy of the schedule before the season so she knows where I will be (or want to be) during football season...LOL!

Congrats, I did the same thing when I got engaged. I said whatever you want is fine... as long as it doesn't happen during football season.

Congrats man...being married is great.

Question...how is a Caribbean Cruise to XYZ Island any different than a Caribbean Cruise to the Bahamas? Do you have a honeymoon budget and is it separate from your wedding budget?

Congrats! My wife and I just celebrated our 1 yr anniversary in June. I love married life. I think SBXVII should be preemptively banned from this thread after what he did to my wedding thread. :)

Re: Getting Married!
 
Thanks guys! I'm excited!

@ Alvin Walton: Thank you for that link, I am going to check that out! We had thought about Jamaica, but we'd have to leave the very next day, and I kind of wanted a day in between to pack and rest up for the trip. But, that trip sounds really nice!!!

@ Matty: Unfortunately, it IS during football season, but maybe I will luck up and it will be on a bye week...LOL!!!

@ Saden: Thanks man! I am definitely looking forward to being married. She is by far perfect for me and everything I have ever wanted in a woman! I guess the difference is that the Caribbean encompasses different locations than just the Bahamas. You can find different Caribbean cruises that port in places like Mexico, St. Lucia (I think I spelled that correctly), Jamaica, etc.. so, they're all considered Caribbean cruises, but you don't port in the same places. At least that is what I understand. I have never been on a cruise, never been to any of those places, so I really don't know what I'm talking about...LOL!!!!

We do have a separate budget just for the honeymoon. Since it's my place to pay for the honeymoon, I have put myself on a budget and a time table for when I hope to have the money ready to book the cruise. I'm sure I need to book it in advance, so I'd like to have the money by no later than March if possible.

LOL! I'm glad to hear that after a year, you're still enjoying married life. I think I am going to enjoy it as well. Both of us have waited until our 30's to find that right person.

Congrats, sir!


Treat her right and you'll love marriage.

Also, getting her trained about the Skins ahead of time is great. My wife hated football when we got married, now she sits with me during games, even replays of preseason games I DVR'd and asks questions...trying to learn the game! She surprised me with a trip to Fan Appreciation Day last year. They can be trained if you just saturate them with all Redskins all the time. Wives are tougher than kids to indoctrinate but if they really love you, it can be done. If you catch one who doesn't have a dedication to a team, at least. :D

Congrats and welcome to the club. My wife and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary this past July. I didn't do a cruise for my honeymoon, but I did go to an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean (the Dominican Republic). I would just recommend that whatever vacation you go to (cruise/resort) make sure that it is all-inclusive. Though I think most cruises are like that nowadays. Well enjoy and congrats once again!

J/K, I've been married 11 yrs. It has its ups(mostly)and downs (just deal with them and think of the ups and you'll get through just fine).

I've had to suck it up and watch Dancing w/Stars and Bachelor....but during the season, football is on every night except Tues & Wed. with her watching too. She deserves credit, she knows more than the "barstool" coaches for sure.

I've got her trained up in the Redskins ways. She actually bought me tickets to a Redskins game last year for Christmas. She knows how much I love the Redskins!

Missing football aside, Ocotober is a good time to go on a cruise. There will be very few kids on the ship.
If you could even bump it out into November it would be even better as you would be farther removed from hurricane season.

I would be open for that! It would give me an extra month to save!
