    We are waiting until June – so three months after our wedding.  Good thing, too, because DH just went in for (unplanned) knee surgery about 10 days after the wedding!

    Mr. D and I did not take a honeymoon. We might one day take an anniversary trip, but because we paid for our wedding ourselves, we just could not afford a honeymoon. Honestly, it wasn’t a huge deal to us. We travel quite a bit visiting family, and Mr. D’s dad paid for us to come visit him in Florida about 6 months after the wedding and even got us a private suite at the hotel (the whole family was staying at the same hotel and most were sharing rooms), so we accepted gratefully and loved having our own little place to retreat to when we wanted some privacy on the trip.

    Our honeymoon will be the April/June after our wedding, so 8-9 months after our wedding, it is just the best time to where we want to travel to.  Plus, it will give us a little wihle to save for it and not freak out.

    we went on our honeymoon about 3 months after our wedding. we had too much to take care of right after the wedding- moving, military stuff, etc. so we went somewhere local-ish for our mini-moon (3 weeks after we got married) and then went on our real honeymoon later

    We left for our honeymoon at Walt Disney World three days after the wedding. It was nice to go while still on the high of our wedding but later would have been fine too.

    I think with work schedules and trying to get the best rate it is becoming more common for people to wait.

    We’re getting married on a Thursday and leaving for our honeymoon on Saturday. Going to Turkey & Italy. We’ve had a long engagement and lots of time to coordinate work schedules

    We took a minimoon nearby the weekend after our wedding. We are now combining our honeymoon with our babymoon which is technically 10 months or so from our wedding date. It’s nice because we were somewhat strapped for cash after the wedding. By waiting, we still get an awesome vacation but we’re not having to cut back on parts of it because of the wedding costs.

    I went to Kauai right after my wedding which was really nice because we still had the initial excitement of being married, and Kauai was amazing.

    We are going on our HM 6 wks after our Wedding. Partly becuase it will be a destination wedding for some guests so we did want to spend some time with them, partly becuase we needed to accrue some more annual leave, save some spending money & flight prcies were silly because of it being peak season. It works for us!
