Not us either. We just realized we’d need a little downtime between wedding day chaos and being on a plane/in the airport. Our tentative plan is to leave the following Friday or Saturday for ours. I’ve heard a lot of people say they even PREFER this because it gives you time to realize ‘Hey, we’re married!” And then you get to go on an amazing trip. Plus, you can pack and get all of that done semi-seperately.

Before when we had our Feb date, we were going to wait a few MONTHS after for our honeymoon.

I’ve heard from my friends that it’s a little nicer/ less stressful to wait a couple of days after your wedding before heading off on your honeymoon.  It gives you a little time to remember to pack everything and get prepared for your vacation.

We will do a mini moon directly after the wedding that will just involve driving to a nice resort that’s two hours away and staying for three nights.  We won’t go on the real honeymoon until 6 – 7 months later.

We did leave the next day, and it was super stressful. 

I had to try to pack everything I’d need for a weeklong vacation at the same time as finishing up other wedding details, and of course there were things that I needed right up till the last minute that you had to remember to pack the next morning when you’re SO tired.

I literally fell asleep at the check in desk at our hotel when we finally got there.

Us. We’re leaving for our cruise to Bermuda 2 weeks and 1 day later. The only 2 cruises leaving in October were either the day after our wedding or our sail date. We knew we definitely didn’t want to leave right after the wedding so we decided that 2 weeks wasn’t too long to wait. I kinda like it anyway. I feel like our whole wedding exerience will last longer since we’re waiting.

We’re not taking our honeymoon until a few months later.  The wedding’s in September, and we’re going to Japan in December.  It’s a combined family celebration/honeymoon, and since I’m still in school, I could only request one “block” off during all the rotations I’ll be doing:)

We have no honeymoon plans yet. We are moving (driving 30 hours) to upstate NY a day after the wedding so I think that’ll be enough traveling for a while.

W can’t. I plan on taking a week off before the wedding and my job won’t give me another consecutive week for the Honeymoon. I don’t really mind, though. We’ll be spending the night and day after in a nice hotel. Then back to work for both of us.

We’re getting married on Saturday and leaving the following Tuesday. It will be nice to be able to relax at home after the wedding and pack. It would be a pain to have to worry about packing on top of everything else before the wedding.

We will be going some where at some time almost nine months later; I am in the process of finishing up a doctorate and won’t be done until then. We wanted to go away without worrying about computer connections and school deadlines. I am really excited about this though as we are taking a week off after the wedding to just “be”. We will have time to hang out with friends and family who’ve flown in for the wdding since it’s on a Friday night and we will get to relax. Plus, looking forward a bit is making us feel like the whole wedding process is extended. 🙂

We didn’t leave for 2 weeks and we are soooo glad we did this. We were EXHAUSTED!!!!! I didn’t feel back to normal until about Wednesday after my Saturday wedding. It allowed us to get our lives organized after the wedding and the house cleaned and such for our departure.
