We didn’t. After a year of trips back and forth between our home state and the state our wedding was in, we were so sick of traveling that we just wanted to stay home and do nothing for a few days. It was a great decision.

I am a teacher and refuse to get married in the summer, so we will most likely post pone our honeymoon for a few months…We are doing an October wedding, and will probably do a February honeymoon. Right after the wedding though, we will probably do two nights in a B&B an hour away from home.

We had all these grand plans, then bought a house 🙁 or 🙂


But we can’t afford it now.  We are just going to spend the weekend in a hotel .

I think doing  a staycation, or a minimoom is a good idea.

I don’t think we’re really going to have a honeymoon. We might just get a nice hotel room here in town or go to Georgia for a weekend. We won’t be able to afford anything else and I doubt we’d be able to take off work for very long.

I think the staymoon is a great idea and gives you time to settle into being husband and wife.  Friends of mine that couldn’t afford to do the honeymoon how they wanted ended up doing something they weren’t happy with.  They’re planning a redo for their 5 year anniversary and I think it’s a great idea!  In doing my own planning, we were thinking about staying home but there’s also currently two tenants (friends of my guy) that are living with us.

We’re going to wait until about a month after the wedding. I am a teacher and our date falls during the school year. Also, we have a 6 year old and he will be coming with us so I don’t know if it will count as a honeymoon or a family vacation?

As of right now unless we magically save up more money or a family member offeres, we are not honey mooning. We are going to stay in a super fancy hotel the night of. My plan is to take a “honeymoon” on our one year anniversary.

A honeymoon was super important to me.  If it came down to very limited funds, we would have had the smallest possible wedding, maybe dinner at a local restaurant with just family and close friends, and gone on a honeymoon.  No way was I paying for a party for everyone else and then not have enough left over to go on my own honeymoon.  Those were just my own priorities.  Also, we’re doing a honeymoon registry instead of a traditional registry, so I hope some of that money can replenish the savings we’ll have to use to pay for the honeymoon.  You all might consider that, even if it means having to take the honeymoon a little later.

We wanted to do something after but I need to be back home to start school the day after labor day, so instead we are taking the ‘honeymoon’ trip before (we leave for Ireland on friday!).  And then we are going camping on labor day weekend.

We wanted too. But because our date is too close to work commitment, we will go 2-3 weeks after we get hitched.

We’ll be going on a belated honeymoon! Get the wedding over with and then save again for the honeymoon..we’re anticipating about 6 months after the wedding!
