@kansas_nurse:  I’d postpone depending on where you want to go. Do you have a desired location for your honeymoon? Would this place work in November?

We left a few days after our wedding but we know of many, many people that waited weeks, a month and months to take a honeymoon. It is not uncommon or strange at all.

@kansas_nurse:  We get married on August 2nd. We’re staying at the hotel the night of and the night after the wedding, but we don’t go on honeymoon until October 6th due to the cost: we get way more ‘bang for our buck’ if we travel outside the school holidays in the UK.

@kansas_nurse:  I’m getting married April 12 and we will leave for our honeymoon on May 16. I’m in law school and wanted to wait until after my exams to go on our honeymoon.

Our honey moon will be 5.5 months after the wedding. I’d just started a new job and the probationary period is 9 months. Plus we wanted to go when the weather would be nice over there.

Nothing wrong with waiting to have the honeymoon of your dreams ! We were married in March (over my spring break I am a teacher) and because we wanted a 2 week honeymoon we waiting until the end of June to go. We spent our 3 month anniversary on our honeymoon and honestly if I had it to do all over again I would do it the same. After the wedding was over we still had something amazing to look forward too. Plus it gave us a couple months to save some more money to be able to do more while on the trip. 🙂

We’re getting married in November and waiting on the honeymoon until January. We’re getting married about a week before thanksgiving so we’d like to stay in town throughout the holidays and then go away after all the craziness is over! So I think there is absolutely nothing wrong with it!

@kansas_nurse:  So… I was involved or attended 7 weddings between June 20th and September 7th of this year. The 8th wedding was my own (a few weeks ago).
My best friends were involved in a few of them as well, and they also got married Sept 6th.
Guess where they are right now? Belize. On their honeymoon. They left a few days after *our* wedding.
I wish we’d waited a week or two honestly. We left 2 days after the wedding and I was still completely exhausted..

@kansas_nurse:  I don’t think it’s bad to wait a month!! It sounds better for your schedule if you were to leave later.

I am taking my honeymoon 6 months after the wedding! I live in the Northeast so when we got married in June I didn’t want to leave what few weeks of nice weather we have haha! 

We did take a mini-moon to Maine. It was nice to get away for a few days. We left 3 days after the wedding which gave us time to get our lives back together.

Our honeymoon was 3.5 months after our wedding. It was so much more enjoyable as we could a) afford a lot more by waiting out the expense of the wedding and b) because it gave us something to look forward to after the excitement of the wedding wore off. 

Just a tip, if you’re booking your trip before your married, watch changing your name. I booked our honeymoon in my maiden name then changed my name. My new id didn’t match the travel tickets so I had to change my name back to my maiden name and then change it back to my married name after.

My husband & I waited a full year and a half before going on our honeymoon. I don’t understand all the fuss about going on a trip IMMEDIATELY after getting hitched. Weddings are stressful enough; planning a trip & having to travel right after seems like a lot of extra work!
