My fi has to start his first day of work two days after our wedding. Either way, we want to go to Europe, and it’s pretty chilly there in early November, so we won’t plan anything for a while, but hope to go in June!

Hi! My fiance travels for work and it is never clear when his next trip is. He literally buys international flights day of, so we cannot plan anything but I am hoping to jump on one of his trips if the destination is appealing and if we get a little notice so I too can take work off. We are staying in a lovely home the weekend of our wedding away from the venue and hope to enjoy that post wedding time together. 🙂

Im right there with you, We can not plan a honey moon right after either, and not sure if it will be next year.  Money is really tight with all the changes we have going on, moved to a new state, new jobs, trying to get into a house and the wedding it just isnt finacally possible.  But we are really trying to do a honeymoon next year, even if it is a 4 day crusie to the Bahamas or a week in Vegas.    Its a bummer but I know we will get one eventually.

We’re not! I’m a little bummed about it, but I’m so looking forward to the wedding that I guess it’s not that bad. We’ll have a HM eventually. Our situation is we had the money, but FI got a promotion so we’re relocating (next week! Ahh!), so I’ll be unemployed/looking for a job, and likely won’t have vacation time (or, rather, we don’t want to book something and then I can’t go). So we’re using HM money for a videographer instead, which I’m excited about!

We had to move our honeymoon to April 2014 because FI landed a movie. He finishes in December but the weather is just not as nice in Bora Bora at that time. We just came back from a lovely premarital mini-moon in Savannah/Hilton Head (which we had to cut short at the last minute too for FI’s job, lol). That was the FI’s idea since I was losing my mind. lol. It was a much needed vacation and we got champagne, went strolling along the beach, ate romantic dinners, and generally just had a lot of fun. At first I was really bummed that we had to move our honeymoon but now I’m realizing it’s for the better, we got to add some extra days to it and we won’t be as stressed out. I’m taking the Monday after the wedding off to get some stuff done, like pick up our marriage license!

Right after our wedding the FI has a big court case, so we’ll have a few days to ourseleves then a court case, then me moving to another country with him (he’s already there) then back to work, but country is a honeymoon vacation spot, so enjoying that and then traveling the asian region and Bali which we’ll be on our honeymoon. So basically next two years is our honeymoon, not a bad deal! 😀

@CARA1978:  We’re hoping to take a mini-moon at some point soon after the wedding but it’s unlikely to happen due to finances.  We’re shooting for a first anniversary/honeymoon trip.

@CARA1978:  We did a two day mini-moon after we eloped in Lincoln City, but we probably won’t go on a real “honeymoon” for a few years. The finances just aren’t there since I’m now off of work due to a knee injury.

  • Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast

We got married on Sunday, Monday was a holiday, and Tuesday I was back at work. No honeymoon for us. Since DS is in school, the only way we could have honeymooned was to get married in the summer. I was hot in my dress in the fall, so there was no way you could have paid me to get married in the summer. lol Really, it was no big deal for us. We were living together for more than a year before getting married. So life carried on as usual.

We originally planned to take a long weekend trip the weekend following our wedding weekend. But then my Grandfather died 6 days before the wedding, and suddenly it didn’t feel like the right time to be going on a weekend trip. Such is life.

@CARA1978:  Can you take a day or two off after the wedding? I know you don’t like the idea of a staycation, but you might need a day to decompress, especially since you’ve haven’t lived together. that’s a big change! i’m scared about the adjustment after marriage and we’ve been living together for 4.5 years lol.

I couldn’t do this. Getting married and then going straight back to home or work sounds extremely depressing to me. I would need at least 2-3 days out of town.

We took a week off after the wedding, and had family stay in town and just spent time with them. I NEEDED time to relax after the stressful week we had before the wedding!
