Because your lovely new bride was gracious enough to spend the last year planning essential wedding stuff like dessert garnishes and the color of your napkin rings, it’s now your turn to plan the honeymoon. Or so you’ve been told.
But even if you’re an expert at coordinating the annual guys' football getaway, making a memorable week with your wife is gonna take more than game tickets and a keg. Her expectations are probably a little higher than your college roommates. Just saying.
Which is why we've compiled this handy list of 10 things you should absolutely NOT do while planning your post-nuptial adventure. You’ve got your whole married life to get blamed for screwing things up -- why take flack right out of the gate? Good luck.
Don’t splurge on first class for domestic flights
You may think being crammed into the back of a plane next to two fat guys and the Mantioba Youth Curling team is a lousy way to start your honeymoon, but the extra grand you'd be doling out to fly first class from Charlotte to Miami is better spent elsewhere. Those giant sleeper seats with on-demand movies and fresh steak on international flights, however... totally worth it.
Don’t invite your parents
Obviously not for the whole trip, but not even for, like, drinks the day after as a thank you for that send-off night they gave you at the Ritz. There is a 400 percent chance they will awkwardly overstay their welcome and make a REALLY awkward comment about “letting you get down to business” when they finally leave at 1am.
