Hi bees, this is my situation:
Our wedding is 10-15-11, and I just landed a full time teaching position (FINALLY!) I am soooo ecstatic I finally have my career going, but now we have to push our honeymoon back; my school is very strict with attendance. It actually doesn’t even bother me because I have been wanting this job so bad, and I know it’ll better our futures, so it’s fine.
I also know some people cannot even afford a honeymoon, so I am happy we are just moving the date back, essentially…
however,I was wondering who else has been in this position, and if you ended up changing your original honeymoon plans to go somewhere completely different? We were going to go to St. Lucia 10-17-11 to 10-27-11, but now we will probably go during Spring Break, which is the end of April. Any ideas, or should we stick w/ our original destination?
Just curious, let me know your thoughts! :O)

We loved our St. Lucia honeymoon and I don’t think it’S a huge colelge spring break destination so I would just go ahead and stick with the destination. Just make sure you stay at a ressort with a couples focus if you are worried about the atmosphere being too spring break.

We’re going to be doing our honeymoon about 6 months after the wedding — they don’t do alaska cruises during the winter. I know, who’da thunk it. Anyway, we’ve got to wait all the way till JUNE, which is OK it gives me something to look forward to. In the short term we’re going to ‘mini-moon’ at a B&B in a historic town nearby the weekend after the wedding.

We went on our honeymoon six months after our wedding. We had just bought our condo, so we didn’t have the funds for it right after the wedding. It’s becoming a more common thing to do.

We’re just planning on having a little mini moon on the weekend of our wedding, and then saving up for a real honeymoon later. I mean, we’ve saved up for this wedding all by ourselves, and have to save for a down payment on a condo as well. So, yeah, we’re a little tight on budget as well. =] No biggie.
