If you dont have the extra cash to spend, I wouldnt do anything special until the HM!  We are having our reception at a bed & Bfast, and we are staying there that night.  they have seperate cottages that they rent out, and I cant wait!  We, however, are waiting to take our HM for 2 weeks after our wedding! 🙁

Our honeymoon flight doesn’t leave until 10pm the day after the wedding, and our reception is an hour away from home, so we are planning on getting a hotel the night of our wedding.

We live half an hour from the airport (and would rather not have to ask someone to drive us), so it makes a lot more sense to get a hotel near the airport with a free shuttle. That way we can sleep in a bit later too. Also I really like whisking away just the two of us and not interacting with anyone else the next day, which we’d have to if we needed someone to drive us to the airport. (Parking there is way too expensive, and public transit takes about 90 minutes from our house.)

We’re renting out an entire Bed & Breakfast.  After our dessert reception, when the family leaves, I’m going to geek out with my friends and play D&D/RPG’s for a few hours and then we’ll all go upstairs to sleep (“sleep” lol).  It’s going to be loads of fun.

We decided we didn’t want the strict schedule and expense of flying somewhere for our honeymoon.  We’re going to rent a car for a week and go on road trip the next day after breakfast and check out.

We’re leaving for our honeymoon 2 days after the wedding so we’re spending the wedding night at a hotel, and then the next night at home.

We aren’t leaving until around 4pm the next day, so we’re going home and staying in our apartment.  It’s just more relaxing that way in our minds.  Plus, we’re driving to our honeymoon over two days, so the day after the wedding we’ll be in some random hotel halfway between our home and our destination.

We’re checking into the B & B the next day because check in for the day of the wedding will be literally during the wedding, and it’s a good hike away. So…we’re having a staycation for our very first night, and then we’ll be elsewhere for our honeymoon. I do believe groom has plans to “transform” the apt a bit for that first night, though.

We’re spending the night at the hotel where the other guests are staying. Then we’ll have breakfast with those who are staying at the hotel and go home to relax and pack for the honeymoon (we’ll be leaving the following day).

We stayed at home, and had a bunch of friends over to watch the hockey game, woke up, did a bunch of errands and Mr. HC’s mom drove us to the airport!  It was fine 🙂

I would save the money for the honeymoon if I were you. We are getting a cabin at the park where our reception is but if I had to pay for it I would probably just go home.

Our honeymoon is 3 weeks after our wedding day, but of course we didn’t want to just go back to our house for our wedding night! So we got a nice suite at a hotel, even though it’s only like 10 minutes away from our house. 🙂 It was an added expense, but it was worth it for us. However, unlike in your case, we will have the luxury of sleeping late the next morning!

We have the “honeymoon suite” at an express hotel, which basically means a king bed suite with a whirlpool in it.  Nothing too fancy schmancy, but at least we can try to be semi-romantic haha!  That reminds me, I’ll have to lean on someone to drop off our luggage at the hotel, since we’ll be taking pictures straight through check in time.

We are getting married on a Sunday, but not leaving for the honeymoon until Friday. So that means that we will be going back to work for three days!

Anyways, we decided to stay at a nice hotel downtown of our city and enjoy breakfast in bed the next morning. I think we both wanted to do something a little more special so this is works well!

I would pass on the hotel room and just stay at your home instead.  It is such a short period of time and sort of a waste of money.  Plus, you’d have to pack ANOTHER suitcase and then deal with your dress at the hotel, etc., etc.  Too much of a pain.  If you really like the hotel, why don’t you book a room there on your one-month anniversary??  Then you two would be able to fully enjoy the hotel and not be in a rush…
