For those of you who have done it, should we go on the HM right away or wait until the bitter cold MN winter? We get married in Sept and it’s still so nice, I was thinking we could just mini-moon to get away for a few days but wait until Feb-ish for the big one. Here is my reasoning:
We can use some of our wedding gift $$ and splurge on a nicer HM
The weather in MN will be more ideal to get away from in Feb
We will be tired from all the months of planning and the weekend of festivities
Having said that, I’ve always liked the idea of being whisked away right after the wedding for a little time together alone. Then, I was thinking, we can still do that but just in a mini-moon (a few day getaway somewhere domestic). Let me know what you think.

we get married 11th August and will be waiting until september to go on honeymoon. moreso to save money cos the kids will all be back at school and prices will come down

We are getting married in a few weeks and going on a HM in Feb. Not much sense for us to get away somewhere tropical when all I can think about is how hot it is outside.

My vote is: go right away.
We did a mini-moon right after – it was nice to get away, but I wish we just left town and took a luxurious honeymoon. We told ourselves we’d save money and do a big 1-year trip, but – unexpected things came up and we can’t make the huge trip happen.
I guess if I booked the trip and KNEW it was coming, maybe that would be different. But – I definitely think there is something amazing about taking that trip just after the excitement of the wedding.
DH and I will always take vacations together… but there’s only really ‘one’ honeymoon.
