    We may not go on a honeymoon, either. It breaks my heart a little, but there’s always anniversary trips. If you can’t afford it, you can’t afford it. I’m hoping we’ll at least be able to go away for a few days somewhere within driving distance.

    We didn’t do a honeymoon directly after the wedding either.  We had planned a trip to Europe for another friend’s wedding, but I’ll be almost 30 weeks pregnant by the time that trip was supposed to have happened.  We decided instead, since we have a baby on the way, to do a small weekend getaway this winter.  It’ll be a combined ‘delayed honeymoon slash babymoon’ at a not-too-far-away bed & breakfast or resort.

    I don’t regret anything- I’m married to a wonderful man, we are expecting a baby, and we didn’t spend our entire savings on a wedding and a honeymoon.  It was tough prioritizing everything since we were footing the bill for our wedding, but it helped us see what was important to us and to our future 🙂

    Oh no, I didnt read the question right and pressed yes by accident! Whether its a night in a hotel down the road or two weeks in the Caribean, DEFINATLEY take a honeymoon, it is so nice to just spend time with eachother and wind down.

    We did not take a honeymoon. We had a little weekend destination wedding, but we were married on the Saturday, home on Sunday, and I was back at work Monday!

    This was mostly at the time due to work schedules (my work schedule) and finances (we paid for our own wedding and such and we were going through some job changes and such at the time). Almost three years later and we still have not taken an “official honeymoon”, and I am thinking the timeframe for that has lapsed, but we have taken various trips (be they weekend getaways or multi-week road trips) and are planning a bigger vacation for our 5th anniversary or so.

    Honestly? I do not regret it. I have had lots of opportunities since to spend quality time with my beautiful husband, be it on short weekend getaway or sitting at home watching a movie, and we have a lifetime of trips, adventures and experiences still ahead.

    We are postponing our honeymoon until 6 months after the wedding.  We want to go to Japan and have dreamed about it ever since we met.  It’s just not financially feasible to do sooner.

    We’d like to take a “mini-honeymoon” right after the wedding and stay at a bed and breakfast for a couple days.  Honestly, I’m more worried/anxious that the Japan trip “won’t count” as the real honeymoon if we take the mini-honeymoon than I’m worried about the fact that it’s postponed.  As another poster said, “If you can’t afford it, then you can’t afford it.”  Having a honeymoon or not having a honeymoon will not affect the marriage itself.  Do it when you can.  The trip will be no less special later.

    P.S. We also registered for our honeymoon rather than doing a traditional wedding registry for china and crystal and such.  I highly recommend it!  Check out depositagift.com for more info.

    We took our honeymoon a few months after the wedding so we could time it with great weather in Tahiti. BEST DECISION EVER. Go on a trip!
