    You can do whatever you want that works for you.

    For me a honeymoon is right after the wedding because of the timing, the feeling of destressing and enjoying your brand spankin new husband.  To me, its just not the same and I wouldnt do it, I would just go somewhere else and plan that trip for 1 year anniversary or 5 year or just a vacation.

    We’re getting married in May and then taking the honeymoon in August as we are going to Europe as well!

    @nikole.powell.np:  I would do a minimoon after the wedding and put the trip to Greece off until April. It’s not the same, but I went to Ireland last summer and it rained the entire time. I knew I was going during rainy season (and it was also the month where everyone goes on holiday so a lot of stuff was shut down), but I just wanted to go so much I figured it would be ok. I don’t regret going, but it was chilly and rainy and there were little outdoor activities we could do. I think putting it off till April makes a lot of sense!

    I think its a great idea, a mini moon first and then off to Greece!

    I agree with lefeymy!  For me I really want our honeymoon to be right after the wedding, I want to get away and spend the week relaxing with my new husband! I think the honeymoon is important, if we didnt do it right after the wedding I would feel like it was just a vacation, it wouldnt have that new wedding excitment feelig to it.  That being said you can always do a fun honeymoon someplace else and maybe for your 1 year anniversary go to Greece 🙂  You have to decide what you really want!

    for us – it was so nice to get away and spend a week away together resting and relaxing after the wedding. BUT we got married in october and went to jamaicia and there was a tropical storm the entire time. We spent like 14 hrs a day sleeping and the rest of the time eating – which was fine and still so relaxing!

    If I had it to do over again, I would have chosen a different location for a long honeymoon (whith nice weather!) or i would have taken a mini moon and gone to the beach in the summer.

    If the weather is going to be rotten, you won’t enjoy it as much! Take a Mini-moon then go on your dream honeymoon in the Spring!
