@luverly7:  I think that’s okay. We are getting married in Feb 2015 and plan on going to Europe (FH is Serbian and wants to see all his family), but we want to go during the good season, late spring or in the summer. So there will be a couple of months gap for us too.

Take this time to just enjoy being married! Congrats!

At least you went for a Mini-Moon.

And I am happy to hear you have a true Honeymoon in the plans.

Your post is a good one, because try as I might to tell Brides what it is like to just come home after the Wedding and go back to living day-to-day routine is hard to get across…

After all the excitement of the Planning, and the actual day it is nice I think to have a bit of fantasy time to continue the magic as a couple

Could never imagine for example coming home to sleep in our bed for the Wedding Night, or getting up to go to work the next day (and yet some Couples do)

Something fantastic about a Hotel Room, and lazing around for a couple of days just the 2 of you.

we’re doing a weddingmoon bc we’re doing a destination wedding, but we probably will delay our honeymoon for a few months – i’d actually like to delay it longer but FI wants to go sooner.

EDIT TO ADD… January isn’t so far away.  Any thoughts yet on WHERE you might go ?

@luverly7:  I got married last Saturday, unfortunately since my husband and I live in different states (I live in colorado, my husband is finishing grad school in michigan) we both had to leave each other Sunday afternoon :(. He lives in the upper peninsula and the wedding was downstate by where our families live, so he had an 8 hr drive and I had about 7 hours of traveling. He’s moving to colorado since I’m working here over thanksgiving, so were thinkin of doing a honeymoon over the Christmas holiday (I’m a professor so I’ll have the time off). It was sad but I had to work and he had to go to class! So it wasn’t even an option for us to honeymoon right after.

We did the same thing as you. Our honeymoon isn’t until January either… to us, it extends what we have to look forward to so we’re glad for it.

We got married a couple of weeks ago, but we are not doing the honeymoon until March. I started a new job a couple of months ago, and my probationary period ends in march. Although I’m accruing vacation time, I can’t use it until then.

We got married a few weeks ago. Our families had nto yet met so we did a mini moon for three days with our parents, my grandparents and my cousin. Sounds crazy -taking gpa on your romantic honeymoon but I wouldn’t have it any other way. The families “fell in love” by the end of it. We had our own hotel and time together and we left knowing we got to spend some extra time w people we only see once a year. i agree that if you can you’ve got to do SOMETHING to come down from the high. We’ll be honeymooning for real in 2014.

We are spending a few days after the wedding in the Pocono’s and figuring out a cool trip for later in the summer or first anniversary.  I am a teacher so I used up all my personal days to have some time now.  I think it will be fun and give us some thing to keep looking forward to.  The whole wedding excitement will not be totally over…

@luverly7:  We’re waiting until I’m on uni holidays, which is about 2-3 months after the wedding. My fiance is planning our honeymoon (I’m sooo excited… he knows me better than i know myself so I know it’s going to be amazing!) so I don’t know anything about it, but I keep saying to him we can have it later in the year if we have to i.e. for financial/practical reasons. He’s the one forking out for our wedding so I don’t want him freaking out about the honeymoon so soon afterwards!

He keeps shushing me every time I say that and tells me not to worry about it! Haha.

@luverly7: We got married 2 weeks ago & are not having a honeymoon. We decided we’d save for our own home first. We don’t feel like we’re missing out though as we have travelled around the world a fair bit over the 5 years we’ve been together. As much as we’d love to go away & just be, we are just as happy knowing we are working towards something else that’s important to our future and enjoying being husband & wife 🙂 

Don’t feel down, enjoy being married… enjoy your new title & keep excited by planning for the next big thing x
