No honeymoon… should I step in?

No honeymoon… should I step in?

Heeeelp! I’ve singlehandedly planned my wedding but agreed to leave the honeymoon arrangements to my hubby to be. Trouble is, it’s two months to go until D day and while we’ve settled on the destination (Thailand) he hasn’t even booked the flights or the hotels. Should I step in, or will that be sending him a message that I don’t trust him? Not-a-Bridezilla

So often in relationships one person is the cruiser, and the other the organiser. It seems like you gave up control to the cruiser and now you want it back. Fair enough. Your honeymoon should be as perfect as you can make it โ€“ whether your idea of perfection is an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora or a tent in Nepal. What Iโ€™m getting at is โ€“ hell yes โ€“ step in. Suggest looking at hotels together online and book on the spot with him at the terminal; send him an email with a hot airline deal that expires in days. Yeah, it sucks that you have to book the caterers and the room with a view – but leave it to the cruiser, and you just might be batting mozzies in a backpacker beach hut.

Love, reality chick
