  • Wedding: October 2009

We are waiting.  Mainly for the same reasons, we have to combine two households, our family will be around, it is too much to plan now etc.  BUT one other great point…. because I was talking to our travel agent and everywhere we are thinking of going seems to have bad weather in October ( i.e. Hurricanes) and much better weather in December. I am perfectly happy waiting and have something fun and exciting to look forward too after the wedding! 🙂

We are waiting too. I’m a teacher, so that limits the time of year we can do any sort of vacation and since he works a “regular” job, he can only take a week of vacation at a time. So we are getting married Dec. 27, 2009 and taking our honeymoon over my spring break in March 2010.

We never even considered going straight to the honeymoon. And I think it will all work out great.

We’re waiting.  He owns a restaurant, and I work for a medical school.  So, we have down time at school at the same time that he shuts the restaurant down for the holidays.  It will definitely be less stressful, and I think it will help to get past the anxieties of wedding stuff and have nice anticipation of a great time alone together.

we’re not waiting – honeymoon is about the only excuse to take extended time off on my job. trying to argue honeymoon a year after getting married might be more challenging than taking it immediately (plus i’d like to take a few days off in the days leading up to the wedding too).

we’re also rolling it into a dinner party for him to meet my extended family that can’t travel to the wedding. – so it’s a two in one.

Beav: Just be careful planning your honeymoon over what will be college spring break.  My fiance is a teacher as well, and we struggle planning vacations over his spring break because it’s hard to avoid partying college students if you want to go somewhere beach-y.  Seems like they are everywhere!

We are going to wait as well…mostly because of financial reasons though. He out of the blue mentioned maybe we could afford to go on one right now, but I would like to find a job to help save and contribute which i have been really struggling with right now….


I would love to go back to the Florida Keys again in the winter, it is an amazing feeling being from WI and just watching the snow disappear as you drive (we roadtripped one year)….we even camped in a tent to save on hotel costs…but next time around since it will be our honeymoon i may want to splurge a little more 😀
