we got married last yr & looked into doin it abroad but then realised that if we did this our whole family (including my stepkids) would be on our honey moon with us & th whole point of a honeymoon is to get away from that,so we had a local wedding,a honeymoon away together then came back & took the kids to port aventura in Spain so that they wouldn't feel left out,this also gave us time to bond as a family after all the wedding stress. I don't want to put you off an exotic destination but the implications of it as a step parent are complicated, it's either don't take the kids & deal with the longterm consequences that has on yours & dh's relationship with them, or put up with your time on honeymoon alone together being broken up by "daaad can I....?" etc and family committments, hardly Romantic!!!!
That's my honest opinion anyways.Xxx

snuggle... i know what you mean step families can be a nightmare... we find we have to put so much thought into everything we do causes a right headache sometimes!!
think we have put the tropical wedding to rest unfortunatly ! its a shame but then my hair goes well flat in the heat so hey can't have it all!!! xx
