I would do after, not before, but I don’t think delaying for a couple months is weird at all.

We didn’t take our honeymoon until about 2 months after, and it was all good. I wouldn’t do it before. It seems like it would lose some of the magic.

Honestly, I don’t think it’s a honeymoon unless it’s after the wedding. Why not wait until next year? Plenty of Bees’ HMs are delayed for various reasons (work, holidays, weather, money..)

It is a vacation before hand, you are not married yet.  Afterwards would be considered a honey moon you can always delay it a few months

I did a “beforeneymoon” and went on a cruise. I had 1 week between my return from the trip and the wedding. 

Pro: it’s hard to stress about wedding stuff when you are lying by the pool with a margarita.

Con: When I got back from 2 weeks of cruise buffets, I discovered that I no longer fit in my dress! I didn’t get to eat a lot during the week before the wedding.
