Honeymoon Cancelled

Hi everyone. Sorry for another one of these posts but it’s been a terrible week.


I’m getting married early June and we were going on a Disney Cruise from Vancouver to Alaska. Well Canada suspended its cruises until July. I’m super super sad. This was our second planned honeymoon after the first idea didn’t pan out. I don’t want to plan a THIRD honeymoon but I don’t know if I have a choice. Here are my stressors:
1. I graduate nursing school in May (or maybe not. The virus is actually throwing that into jeopardy). I have to take my boards in July at some point (I won’t know that date until probably June) in order to start work in late July. If I don’t take it- then I can’t start work. So I can’t honeymoon in July.
2. We are less than three months out. June is a very popular month for vacation and I’m doubting that I’m going to find any nice place for the length of honeymoon we were going to have (about 10 days). Even with the virus going around, I don’t think there will be as many cancellations in June.
3. I can’t afford to take time off the first year of work. The first year of work is for training and I’m not allowed to take off.

I just don’t know what to do. I’m stressed about whether or not I’m going to graduate and about our honeymoon. Yes it’s great that I still get to marry my best friend- but our honeymoon was something we have been looking forward to and we have been throwing more effort into it than the actual wedding.
If you got this far- thanks for listening to me complain.
Sincerely,
A very depressed and stressed bride.

    Would you be open to planning a stay-cation at a really nice hotel near your town for now, and postponing the real honeymoon for after you finish your first year at work? I have no idea where you live and don't know much about Canada in general, but I live 30 minutes from a major city with fancy hotels, restaurants, spas, etc. It could actually be really nice and low stress to plan?

    When my FH and I got engaged, we spent 3 nights in a spa suite in Mendocino, CA. It was rainy and freezing outside, so we spent the majority of our time in the hotel which had a private jacuzzi, a jetted tub and even a sauna! The room was about $200/night. Our only other expenses were a couple meals out, then bottles of wine and snacks for the room. It was the most romantic and intimate experience, honestly, and I adored every minute of that trip.
    I know it's no cruise or exciting vacation, but if you're stressed about planning a third honeymoon, maybe consider a local stand in one?

    Sorry you are dealing with this! I disagree with your point #2 though: I think you can absolutely positively find a great place to honeymoon in June! Resorts really never sell out- if that's what you are hoping for. Otherwise, Airbnb is full of listings in so many beautiful places.

    I'm so sorry. This whole thing is just a mess.

    Do you think the exams might be postponed at this rate?

    No thank goodness! We’re going online and all of my exams were online anyways. The only issue is if clinical sites start turning down the students and if the State Board of Nurses refuses our back up plan, then we won’t graduate in May since we didn’t finish our clinical hours. But I’m thinking that the hospital isn’t going to stop us from coming unless we’re sick- we are free labor and so close to graduating!

    Thank you so much! After the emotional high, I am realizing that what you’re saying is absolutely true!
