We are in the same situation, but I can tell you, the payoff is huge. It is such a wonderful feeling to know that everything wedding is paid for and that we did it ourselves. You will have that feeling too. We are hoping to go on a little minimoon to Canada to see my grandma at the end of this summer, so that will make up for part of it, and then next summer, we are probably going to do something more honey mooneyish, but we haven’t decided what yet. We just know that we will have whatever we do paid for when we do it.

EDIT: We were able to spend our wedding night away from home, so that was a good thing πŸ™‚

I just got a new job, which means we could afford a very cheap honeymoon, but there’s a good chance I could get promoted to store manager in September, the month we’re getting married :/. If I get it, I’ll be lucky to have those few days off, but there’s no way I’ll be able to take a honeymoon. There’s a chance that I might get promoted to another store earlier…so, fingers crossed!

We didn’t have a honeymoon but for a different reason, we were moving across the country a little over a month after the wedding and didn’t have time or money.  I figure we will go on enough vacations, one right after the wedding won’t be that much different.

We’re in the same boat.  Going to do our best to take 2 or 3 nights away in the area somewhere (assuming someone will watch our crazy giant puppy) just after the wedding, but then no plans until at least next year.

Going to save our pennies and head to Ireland. 

It takes LOTS of pennies!

I’m jealous – I wish we could go to Cuba!  I spent about a decade living in Miami and have always wanted to go there. 

I’ve been to Ireland before, but my very proud of his little bit of Irish heritage groom has not.  I can’t wait to take him!  (come ONNNNNN money tree!) πŸ™‚

@babybluz yup! We had look at this resort before.. the reviews for the hotel were good.. then when I looked it up this week they are having a “no gas tax” thing for bookings this week so it was a few hundred bucks cheaper.. I can’t get over the price and am PUMPED we get to go on a honeymoon

We’re in the same exact boat. We’re paying for the wedding outselves, but we’re hoping that with some of the money we get as wedding gifts, maybe we can go on a trip for my birthday a month later. Who says a honeymoon has to come right after the wedding? It’s just another thing to look forward to, rather than one big long wedding event. This way, it’s not all over at once.

A honeymoon is not even an option at this time for us either. It is taking all that we have to just pay bills, and put a tiny bit away for the wedding. Am hoping to maybe be able in a couple years (yes, I said a couple years)  πŸ™

Can you even do a small getaway?  Maybe do a wish registry like at uponourstar.com and do a night at a fancy hotel, brunch or dinner at an expensive restaurant- I would totally “buy” that off a registry for a friend who couldn’t afford to go on a honeymoon- everyone deserves a little mini-moon!!!!
