We left a few days after the wedding and honestly would not have minded waiting a few more days as there was SO much stuff for us to do.  I thought once the wedding over we were good but there is still quiet a bit of stuff for us to do.

We went to NYC.

We are taking a later honeymoon BUT we leave tomorrow 🙂 My fiance is in medical school so we had to wait for him to finish classes and take a big test before our trip. We are going to the Excellence Playa Mujeres.

I am really glad that we didn’t have to stress about packing right after the wedding. We are so excited to finally get to vacation together.

We’re going on our honeymoon a week after our wedding. Being that we’re getting married in California, my parents want us to open up gifts the day after so we can get our thank you cards out and then we’ll fly back here to Texas! The cruise we wanted to go on only leaves out of our port on Sundays so we’ll leave that next Sunday :]

We’re going on a 7-day cruise to the Caribbean!!

We’re leaving two days after our wedding, but I would have been happy to wait longer…it just ended up working out this way. I think it’s nice to have at least a few days to decompress before you travel somewhere, but oh well! We’re going to South Africa and Mozambique 🙂

We have a wedding to go to a week after ours! 

And so to not have anything too rushed (it is an OOT wedding) we are leaving for our honeymoon the Monday 2 weeks after our wedding.

I think it is perfect timing for us!

My wedding is the weekend of Thanksgiving, and we plan on honeymooning right before the Christmas holiday.  My fiance is in grad school and won’t have a break til then.  While he is busy with finals, I’ll keep myself busy with thank you notes!

We got married on a Saturday and left on the next Monday. It was nice to have a day in between to unwind and hang out with family.

We’re waiting…a year! So I think we’re in a totally different boat. My fiance’s new job and & grad school start the Wednesday after our wedding (hello new life!). Since jobs & life were so variable for us during the planning process we knew we’d be going next year. I’m actually happy about this cause we’ll have time to save some money and plan a trip to (crossing fingers) Italy!

We are not – because FH has to start teaching classes the week after we get married. We’re taking a bunch of mini-moons our first year married – the first one will be a month after the wedding – I can’t wait!

The wedding is on Saturday night and we’re leaving for the HM on Monday, so we’ll have one day in between.

We are planning a Saturday wedding and haven’t really fleshed out the details of honeymooning or mini-mooning. It really all depends on where we decide we want to go, our budget, and if we have someone to watch the pets & kid (because I am certainly not wanting to be on mommy duty when I could be relaxing like a hedonist).

As far as I can tell though, it will probably end up with us relaxing at home for a few days after before going back to the daily grind.

We were planning on leaving the next day but now I am considering leaving two days after the wedding. I have a feeling there is going to be a lot of stuff to clean up at the venue/return rentals/etc. the next day and I feel kind of bad leaving my family to do it.
