Bride-to-be reveals her friends have invited themselves on her HONEYMOON and booked the week off work without telling her – and asks if it’s unreasonable to want to holiday as a couple
- A British woman revealed her pals have invited themselves on her honeymoon
- She took to Mumsnet to ask if she was being ‘unreasonable’ to want to be alone
- She said her and her new husband won’t have ‘had sex’ before they get married
- The anonymous woman said one friend has even booked the week off for the trip
A bride-to-be was left furious after her friends invited themselves on her honeymoon and booked time off work for the holiday without asking her first.
A British woman took to Mumsnet to reveal that she and her partner have mutual friends who have suggested they book an eight-bedroom property for a group getaway this summer.
The anonymous woman asked if she was being ‘unreasonable’ to want to be alone with her new husband on the honeymoon, which they are staying in the UK for due to uncertainty around Covid-19 travel restrictions.
She explained that she has been dating her fiancé for two years and they won’t live together or ‘have sex’ until they are married due to their religion, saying all their friends are aware of this.

The woman took to Mumsnet, posting under the username jendifer, to ask if she was being ‘unreasonable’ to want to be alone with her new husband on their honeymoon
The bride-to-be added that although they often go on holiday with their friends, she wanted her honeymoon to just be herself and her partner, adding that her friends have also invited other friends.
She explained: ‘Yesterday some friends came round and were asking us about the wedding. We explained we’d have a local honeymoon as we aren’t sure what the restrictions would be regarding a holiday abroad.
‘The friends said they’d love to go to the place we’re going to and could they come too. We laughed it off.
‘This morning a different friend has messaged saying she’s heard about yesterday’s conversation and has found a house near where we’re staying which sleeps 8 and they’re thinking of booking it.
Users were baffled by the friends’ approach and said they were the ones being unreasonable
‘AIBU to want the honeymoon to be just DP and I?
‘Or do I just acknowledge that I’ll have a week with DP and a week with friends nearby who we love the company of and it’ll be nice to see other people too?!’
Other Mumsnet users were quick to support the woman and share their outrage at her friends’ behaviour, hilariously urging her to change the location of her trip without telling them.
One woman even said that her friends have ‘boundary issues’ while others quipped that they should tell their friends that they plan to sex for the whole holiday to dissuade them from wanting to come.
One person wrote: ‘No! Honeymoon is just you and DP. Your friends are weird to think they can make it a group holiday!’

Another responded: ‘Change your venue ASAP. Don’t tell anyone. That is so so so bizarre.
‘My honeymoon was the best time of my life and it was so nice just to spend time with my husband. I’ve never heard of this before. So strange your friends have boundaries issues.’
A third quipped: ‘Tell them you won’t be much company as you and dh intend to be shagging for the entire honeymoon….’
While a fourth commented: ‘Is this a late April Fools?!
‘Very easy to resolve, remind them what couples do on honeymoons!’
