We’re going on our honeymoon 6-7 months after our wedding.

southerngal2016 :  I work in the restaurant industry so doing it all at once works best for us and my job. We did think about waiting a few days but I don’t have enough vaca

  • Wedding: April 2015

We paid for 90% of our wedding and had a few unexpected expenses along the way (nothing to do with the wedding) so we decided to put it off. BUT what we did do is after the Sunday night wedding, April 2015, we were only a three hour drive away from Vegas so we did that as our small getaway. He couldn’t get much time off from work. really he was told to be back at work Wednesday! i took the week off… We didn’t go on our official honeymoon until just this month, July 2016 and he was in a much better job where he was able to take off over a week off and i had more than enough vacation time to spare. It was wayyyy easier to plan rather than planning for both a wedding and a honeymoon. We were definitely warned about putting it off…people told us if we did, the honeymoon would never actually happen, but when you can’t afford it, then you just can’t afford it. And i certainly didn’t mind waiting. It was worth it…

southerngal2016 :  We left right after the wedding… like 4 hours or so after the reception ended. While we had a wonderful honeymoon, it was a little much. What we should have done was waited atleast a week. That’s okay though, I was just greatful to be in Hawaii.

We waited 4 months to take our honeymoon–wedding in June and honeymoon this October. The day after our wedding, we had a little staycation just the two of us. We went to brunch and had a spa day with couple’s massages, champagne and pool time. 

The reason why we waited is partly for financial reasons and partly because it was too stressful to plan the honeymoon and wedding simultaneously. It worked out really well because we were able to relax after the wedding and have something fun to look forward to and plan together. We’ll be going to Italy and it’s probably not going to be relaxing anyway with all of the sight-seeing.

There isn’t a right or wrong way so do whatever feels right for you.
