How many days would you be in Mexico if you flew back for the wedding? I would just do both.

I think #2 sounds great. It’s actually nice to be able to have some time to get wedding stuff over and done with before going on your honey/mini moon. You can deposit cheques, do thank you notes, catch up on a bit of work, and then head on your vacation!

The 6 day “mini-moon” sounds like a honeymoon to me.  I’d do #2 if you really want to make the wedding.  But yeah, that would mean going back to work unless you have enough time off to just take it off and chill at home or osemthing.  At the end of the day a “honeymoon” is just a fancy name for a vaction usually taken right after the wedding.  Call the trips whatever you want, honeymoon, delayed honeymoon, minimoon, delayed minimoon… it’s all just some kind of vacation.

Well considering the average couple honeymoon’s for a week, I wouldn’t really consider that trip a “mini moon”. Generally speaking a “mini moon” is like a little 2-3 day getaway. 

If you feel adament about spending a full 6 days in Mexico, just attend your friends wedding the following weekend and leave for Mexico from there. Otherwise I’d say plan a little 2-3 day getaway close by for yourself after your wedding and then go to your honeymoon as origionally planned.

qwertynonymous :  I second the notion that your 6 days is a bit longer than I would expect for a “mini-moon”.  Are you completely tied to Mexico for a mini-moon?  Or can you change your mini-moon to accommodate a shorter flight and thus a shorter mini-moon?

If not, option 2 is pretty good!!

Can you do a smaller mini moon? We had to put off our honeymoon for work reasons, but spent 4 nights in a city we could just take a train to right after the wedding. The main reason we did it was because we couldn’t imagine just going back to work on the Monday after, and wanted time to revel in being newly married together for a few days. 

Obviously it’s up to you, and who doesn’t want to go to Mexico for a week any time! But personally I would want to find something we could do right after the wedding, even if it’s just a little jaunt.

Isn’t a 6 day still in Mexico basically a honeymoon?

qwertynonymous :  It sounds like you’re pretty tied to this particular 6 day trip to Mexico, so given that, I’d just leave after the friend’s wedding and go back to work for a few days in between. It will feel a little weird, but lots of people do it.
