I don’t think its less romantic at all. We’re staying at the resort we’re getting married at on our wedding night but we’re not leaving for our Honeymoon until 2 weeks later. I think it will be nice to relax in your own home after the craziness of your wedding day. If our wedding suite wasn’t included in our reception package, we would probably head home after too.

Not at all! i think that is a great idea. most people dont leave until the next morning anyway – we stayed in a hotel the night of our wedding, but it was free for us since we had our reception there. but i dont think there is anything unromantic about staying in your own bed on your wedding night

We’re going home to party with friends and family at our place post-wedding. Wake up with them, breakfast with them, really close family weekend. So many came from so far, our personal space is out the window the wedding weekend and I don’t mind in the least.

That’s exactly what we’ll end up doing. We’re renting a cottage and I doubt we’ll want to drive up there at like 2am (plus we’ll probably be drunk). So we’ll go back to our apartment for the night and leave the next day.

We went home afterward. It was nice to not have to worry about going anywhere, checking in anywhere, or anything.

I think it is a great idea!! Then you can get a good nights rest and leave when you are ready in the morning. Why pay all that money to stay somewhere for a few hours.

Im glad you posted this!! I dont feel so weird now lol Fiance and I are also going home after our wedding.. I think it will be a great thing to do so we actually are comfy and get the rest we need after that huge, busy day. Plus we would have to take the gifts home anyways.

We considered it, but we might end up staying at a nice local hotel that night. We’re planning to buy a new house that is supposed to be ready the week after our wedding, so I think the apartment is going to be a total mess of wedding junk and half-packed boxes. That’s just about the least relaxing environment I can think of!

We’re going home after the wedding too–well, after the “after party” with our friends at a local bar where I can get snockered and not have to be lady like :). Our honeymoon is going to be almost three months after the wedding, and I don’t see the point of staying at a hotel when we have our own bed close by.

My Fiance has mentioned that he’d kind of like to get a hotel room for our wedding night, but I find it so difficult to justify the expense. Our budget is already extremely tight and we live ten minutes from our venue. I think it makes the most sense to just come home after the wedding.

We are actually not even going to sleep that night! ha! our reception ends at midnight, and we’re flying out at 5:30 a.m. the next morning at an airport 2 hours away from where our wedding is. And it’s an international destination, so we’ll have to check in even earlier. So we’re just going back to our father-in-law’s house, probably hang out for an hour or so, and head to the airport!

@iheartnerds I feel the same way, but I’m slowly warming up to the idea of a hotel room. How many wedding nights are you going to have in your entire life?

I understand if your budget is tight and there just isn’t room. But if you have some flexibility, consider making room for this! That’s what I’m trying anyway.
