Is it just me or are there any other newlyweds that have not gone on a honeymoon or mini-moon yet? Do you feel like you regret this decision? Are you going to plan something for later?
We decided we were not going on a honeymoon (as of yet). It just wasn’t feasible for us at the time with job changes and other obligations that we have that most couples our age do not face and none of it was about money. Lately though, I really wish we had gone. I wish we would have taken those days to go away from it all.
Since we didn’t get to do anything we are planning on going away for a night or two as a mini-babymoon. I am hoping that it doesn’t fall through.

We’re getting married next Saturday and we’re not going anywhere for a honeymoon. We’re remodeling one of our bathrooms and the room that will be the nursery so we’d rather spend out time off that way. We still get to spend quality time together though!
We also just got back from FL and a mini vacation so we’re not itching to get away either.

My DH and I couldn’t take a honeymoon due to finances and not having enough time (he’s in the military). So, we’re saving like crazy so we can take one around our 1 year anniversary. I don’t regret that decision at all. I actually redecorated the bedroom and surprised him on our “mini-moon” and he LOVED it. The week I took off from work, we just enjoyed our little honeymoon room…in our tiny apartment. It was awesome!

See we haven’t been on vaca since before the wedding. That would have helped a bit. I also wasn’t able to take days off after the wedding. Doing that would have been nice too but our obligations at home would have still been there.
I think I just want to get away from it all, so that is why I told the hubs that we definitely need to go away just for a night. That would be nice. Just the two of us. I do know we want to do something for our 1 year and it will be great to bring the baby along too.
@Future – when are you due? Our nursery is currently his pop’s office. We told him he is being evicted from that room April 1st so I can set up the nursery 🙂

I am in similar situation, we are paying for the wedding ourselves and just frankly don’t have enough money to go on a honeymoon yet. However, with my fiance being in the military, we are worried if we postpone he will deploy again. So I don’t know what we plan to do.

We’re due September 18th but Fiance is sooo excited about the nursery! It’s so cute and a little bit sexy and romantic that he will have literally built it with his bear hands. We need baby’s closet space too, we’ve already gotten tons of clothes and diapers.

We are getting married this November and as of right now, have no plans for a honeymoon or mini-moon. We are looking at purchasing a house instead…so all the money we save up will be used to remodel, mortgage and property taxes. Although I would love to go on one, it seems more practical to save. :*(

DH and I have NEVER been on a vacay together. We simply don’t have the money. We both work barely-above-minimum-wage hourly jobs, I’m still in school, we rent a cheap apartment and rarely go out.
We do have enough money in savings to go on a KILLER vacation. But we’ve been scraping that together to save for a downpayment on a house.
While I would have LOVED to go to someplace tropical and sunny, it’s just not in the cards for us.
Maybe someday, right?

We didn’t go on a honeymoon. Both for money reasons and the fact that we were moving across the country a month after the wedding. We are going on a trip in May to make up for it.

due to my husabands immigration issues as well as the fact that he just started a new job we wont be going on a honeymoon this year. The plan is to go on a honeymoon for our one year anniversary or something like that to Okinawa. Hell I dont mind, that gives me one whole year to get my butt into sexy bathing suite shape! 😉

We are getting married in September and will not be going on our honeymoon until next April. Fiance is a professer and will be teaching the week following our wedding and we will need time to save money. I am hoping we will be able to get away for a weekend in the month following the wedding.

Because my Mother-In-Law is very sick with cancer, we both felt that we wanted to wait to go on a honeymoon…we both don’t want to be very far away in case something should happen…we have plenty of time in our lives to go on a trip!

I got married in November in Philadelphia and went to nyc for one day. Then when we got back to Seattle, we went to Disneyland for two days. But are going for our offical hm in a month, in April. Can’t wait!

We’re doing one. Something you might consider is staying on the Wa coast or any part of the coast for that matter. Half of ours is going to be in Seattle doing some touristy stuff and the last bit is going to be in a really nice condo right on the beach. It’ll only cost us about $500 to stay in a place with a king bed, unobstructed view of the ocean, 3rd floor, complete kitchen, and granite countertops. It’s seriously a steal for 2 nights/3 days.

We didn’t do a honeymoon but I plan on. I regret it a little bit but the wedding was great so what you going do, ya know? Thinking of Miami in August. I just want some sun and sea.
