I would make a list of all the things you’ll need to do before the wedding, and then analyze it to see if you can do all of them in the time you’ll have left if you take the trip.  Personally, I would go — looking back, there was nothing to do for the wedding until about four days before.  However, I had a lot of family support, and was calm about getting married in general.

As long as things are done or have a plan to be accomplished, go and have fun! You dont want the trip to add stress, but be a way to relieve stress and enjoy yourselves.

DO IT! It sounds like the pefect breather before final preparations. Get away and let your hair down for ten days. It will be amazing!

@MsGolightly:  28 days (between 2nd and 30th November) is a long time to take care of any last minute things if needed. Do aim to take care of most things before you do go though, just in case any of your vendors need any longer than 28 days to adjust to any changes… other than that… It’s LONDON! GO!

@MsGolightly:  I’d do it- no qestion!  I had a lot of non-wedding things going on the month of the wedding.  I went to Texas for 4 days, ran the Tough Mudder (which also meant hosting friends for a weekend), and I feel like I did something else right around the 1 month mark but I can’t remember.

You’ll be fine!  It’s probably a good thing to take a break from wedding stuffs, otherwise that’s all you focus on and that can make some people crazy.

GO GO GO!! I would for sure if money allowed it and since i’ve always wanted to visit london atleast once! Like the other bees said it’s always nice to have a little breather before the big day. If you do decide to go, have a safe trip and i hope you have lots of fun!

GO! I don’t think it’s *that* close to the wedding. We had last minute details to tie up but they were truly last minute details, they couldn’t be done 4 weeks before the wedding.
