I honestly don't know!

My hubby leaves absolutely everything to the last minute, every time that we've been away (and I mean EVERY TIME in the past 6 1/2 years) has been solely organised by me, because if I'd have let him do it we wouldn't have got anywhere laugh.gif

If he really wanted to do it, though, I'd let him, but he'd probably hand the job back to me because he'd get sick of my constant questions and nagging..

Hmm, I'm not much help at all..

Hmm yeah I would let him but i'd be dropping some very heavy hints about what I wanted biggrin.gif My h2b is one of those ppl who when he isn't sure, he goes for the more expensive/deluxe option.. which is fine with me! smile.gif i'd be very tempted to hand over the reigns to him i think!

I let Shane organise our honeymoon.

I knew we were going to Fiji and the name of our island but that was it. I was too busy so didn't even look into what it was like or anything.

When we arrived we were taken to a motel to stay the night before heading to the island.

It was .... soooooo BAD.

There were feral cats everywhere, and I ate dinner with my feet up on my chair. I had to shower with my thongs on. unsure.gif

We spent the whole night laughing that our honeymoon might be all like that....

But it wasn't. The island was magical and really perfect.

I say give it a go and let him surprise you. He can't really go that wrong and you'll be in absolute bliss anyhow. smile.gif

Oh dear. I talked to him last night and asked him if he could surprise me with the honeymoon as I'd really like that. His response was "I thought we'd already decided that I would organise it? That's why we're going to The Entrance." He's only kidding but it made me wonder...

I trust that he would do everything he can to make me happy. He's organised enough. I think I'll live it up to him. He'll get it organised far cheaper than I would, for sure.

I'm letting my H2B organise ours...which I kind of hate but love at the same time. I don't like being in control! But I am giving lots of hints...esp overseas as both of us have never done that...but probably not, too expensive for my cheap skate H2B! tongue.gif But I'm sure it will be perfect! ( i hope... laugh.gif )

Yes l would without a doubt

Hubby was to be organising our honeymoon then his sister and partner offered us a honeymoon as their wedding gift to us but they wanted it to be a surprise.

They spoke to us as to what our dream holidays were, locations, type of holidays and where we wouldn't want to go then booked the whole thing.

They emailed and spoke to our Dr about our holiday so they could arrange the shots we needed we just turned up and got an injection.

Had the in-laws coming to take our passports to the travel agents cause SIL live in Hong Kong.

We ended up finding out 2 days before the wedding cause SIL arrived over for the wedding and we were having dinner with them and it just got to much for hubby not knowing - and l did kind of want an idea for packing.

So we had 3 days in Singapore and then 2 weeks in Vietnam - two locations there. It was great and we loved it all. If we had booked it we probably would of done it differently - most probably had longer overseas cause we both had taken a month off work but then it was really nice to have 10 days at home to do some renovations around the house. In hindsite if we had known our destination earlier hubby would of researched things like video cameras/electrical gear from Singapore.

If someone other than you books it you have to be prepared for there to be aspects that you would of done differently but relax and enjoy it all.

Absolutely!!!! I know that H2B would pick somewhere great because he wouldn't want to go somewhere we wouldn't enjoy, especially since we have to save real hard and we only get to do it once. I'm sure whatever he picks you two will have a blast!

Mine is surprising me...I won't know anything about the honeymoon until its time to leave! He's about 100 times better at planning and organisation than I am, and I know he'd pick something amazing, so I'm not worried at all...I can't wait!

If you're worries, why not decide on where you want to go together, then leave all the rest up to him?

My answer is yes beacuse H2B and I have very similar taste in holidays - we both love lazing by the pool at 5 star resorts. I would also love to have that element of surprise in not knowing where you are going.

Absoluteley! He is a travel organising machine. He can even plan routes to maximise status credit earn. He also hates flying economy tongue.gif

The last time he took me on a suprise trip I was told to turn up at the airport with my passport and a change of clothes. He then took me to Auckland for a weekend shopping and cocktails on his credit card!

He spends so much time travelling, researching and planning travelling there is no one I would trust more.

No, but that's because he doesn't have the drive to search out the best places and prices and, what's more, he doesn't enjoy it the way I do!

But if he's good at that and wants to, go for it. I can't imagine how awesome a surprise holiday would be!

He sounds EXACTLY like mine. No way would I want to plan a trip if he wanted to do it. He would just find out what my plans were and re-plan them all for maximum gain anyway laugh.gif
