Surprise honeymoon

Hi everyone!


FH and I booked our honeymoon through packupgo.com - a travel agency that books surprise vacations for people. So excited for it in September! The way it works is, they send you a survey to find out what your hobbies and travel interests are (and what you want to avoid), and you send them a budget for flight/hotel, and when you’d like to travel. Then they book the trip, and send weather forecast and airport info a week before you go, along with an envelope containing your destination. You’re supposed to open the envelope when you’re in the airport. Smiley laugh
Everyone we’ve told about it is looking forward to finding out where we’ll go! We want to make a sort of guessing game out of it at the reception, but as mentioned, we won’t find out until the moment we’re in the airport, so I’m not sure if it’s possible to make a game or something out of it at the reception. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Wow--totally cool! I hope afterward you come back and post where you went! As far as your reception, I've seen some cute travel themed ideas (just Google "travel themed wedding") like having guests sign a globe instead of guest book, favors, seating assignments, etc.

    Oh yeah, I’ll post when we find out! Thanks for the travel theme idea! That’s right up our alley.

    Ohhh! This is really interesting! Never heard anything like it at all. Maybe you all can do a ‘guess the destination’ game. Since you all have to give ideas to the travel agency you guys can include some hints this way it makes it easier. Or if you want, you can make it harder by not giving any hints. I think they should get at least 2-3 top guesses of where they think it might be. It’s almost like a gender reveal in a sense. Not only will everyone else be surprised but you both will be too. Can’t wait to see where the destination will be!

    The "prize" for guessing correctly at the reception could be a postcard from your honeymoon.

    Maybe a souvenir and a glass of wine from the country. You can deliver it when you all get back or could mail it while you are at your destination. I wouldn't say a postcard is really a prize.

    Omg I love this! I might have to consider this for our honeymoon since we are so indecisive. Definitely please update once you come back — I'd love to hear all the details and how it goes for you!!

    I also think you could find a way to incorporate it into thank you cards! Maybe telling everyone where you went or if you did a picture type thank you card, you could include a picture from your trip or something like that.

    Thank you so much for the ideas, everyone! Giving hints about it, using it in thank you cards, and sending the “winner(s)” nice souvenirs would work well!


    I will definitely keep you updated too about where we end up!
