I like all of your points, but I think the big draw of having your honeymoon right after your wedding is you don’t have to go back to reality yet 🙂 I saw a girl that got married the night before in Target with her new husband and it just totally freaked me out — yesterday she was the center of the world and today she’s buying toothpaste at Target. I want to avoid that 🙂

We didn’t go on a honeymoon yet because we had to move right after the wedding so I agree that planning 2 things at the same time isn’t fun (we were planning the move).  Congrats!

Great advice! As a newlywed couple ourselves, I’d have to say I agree with you. I wish my wedding day didn’t FLY by! I’m so upset about that!

I think I’m with Miss Ribbons on the honeymoon! I think you really make great points, but after a really stressful time planning, the honeymoon directly after was my salvation!! It was by far the most relaxing trip I had ever taken, and I think it just felt great to go from the whirlwind to the relaxation so quickly.

Great points otherwise! And congratulations on your marriage!

I think you make some great points.  Maybe I just don’t get invited to any amazingly fabulous weddings, but I have never been to a wedding that looks like something I see on most blogs or wedding magazines.  The amazing thing- they’ve always been a lot of fun and filled with love. 

As for the honeymoon- to each their own.  My FI doesn’t have a choice, he has to be back a couple of days after we are married, and his schedule doesn’t allow for a honeymoon until 12 weeks after the wedding.  In some ways it will be nice- we can reflect upon the event and how life has/has not changed and not be so exhausted from wedding craziness.
