So our flight to Cancun leaves at 8 the day after the wedding. We plan to leave the hotel at 6am which means I have to wake up at aroud 4:30 to get ready. The wedding is scheduled to end at midnight…why did I think this was such a good idea?lol

Ugh, I know your pain. We had an early ending wedding, getting home at midnight, and to bed around 2 and up at 6, and to get a train.
It was horrible! So Tired! Hopefully you will be able to sleep on the plane! Make it an early night the first night, and get some sleep so you can enjoy the rest of the honeymoon!
It’s still fun though, going away! Congrats!

Hahah, in the same boat! Our wedding is on Saturday, our flight leaves at 7am on Sunday, which means we have to be at the airport at 5am to head to Puerto Vallarta… you can always sleep on the beach!!! 🙂

This is the reason we are leaving 2 weeks after our wedding! LOL
I couldn’t do it!

I had some friends that got married on a Thursday in City A. Got up the next morning to drive to City B (5 hours away) for their hometown reception. Then drive back to City A again that same night, so they could fly out the next morning for their honeymoon…Pure craziness I tell you! lol

It will be crazy while its happening but once you’re in Mexico, you’ll be glad.
We left on the Monday night after the wedding and I’m SO glad we did. DH wanted to leave Sunday night but I really wanted that extra day to get organized.

My biggest regret is thinking it was a good idea to stay around for an extra day before leaving. You will be thanking yourself for doing this, trust me!!!
People found out we were staying for an extra day and changed their travel plans accordingly so they could ‘spend more time with us’. It was an absolute nightmare. All I wanted to do was sleep and there were people from out of state who stayed an extra night just because we were so they could spend ALL DAY with us. I felt ‘rude’ when I finally crashed the next night at 9:30pm.

You will be happy, it is worth it. You will get there and just relax!! We have to wait all week before we leave on our honeymoon and I cannot wait!!!!!! We changed our date, otherwise we would have been leaving sooner 🙁

We have an 8:15am flight to Aruba (we really wanted to do a tour of South America, but it is winter there now, so we are going to do a week long in Aruba as a minihoneymoon and then do our 2 week tour in December).
We are planning to just stay up (maybe a 1 or 2 our nap) and try to sleep on the plane/ nap when we get there.
Knowing both of our families… leaving before everyone gets up is just the only choice!
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

@moderndaisy: I’m surprised people did that to you! Like I said we left Monday night and after leaving my parents get together Sunday afternoon, we didn’t see anyone. We went home, organized the gifts we got, put the wedding stuff away, packed for our minimoon, etc… it was SO nice to do our own thing until we left Mon night.

We’re leaving a day after the wedding, and putting a “do not disturb” sign on our hotel room. We’re sleeping in and getting breakfast in bed! Cell phones turned off, just enjoying the morning without dealing with the guests who are still in town. Just do it up right when you get to Mexico, and relax! If you’re lucky enough to be able to sleep on planes, i’m sure you’ll pass out 🙂

We always recommend that you take a day off between the wedding and honeymoon departure if you can. A lot of couples do a brunch with their out of town guests, and it gives you some time to get your dress and gifts home.
Have a great trip!

Our flight leaves at 6am on the morning after our wedding. I don’t think we’ll even go to sleep until we get on the plane 🙂

I’m really looking forward to leaving on Monday around 11AM for our honeymoon to Punta Cana. That gives us a day to relax, get reorganized, and drive back to our house on Sunday (after visiting with immediate family).
