We didn’t even leave till early Monday morning and I was still exhausted. I’d do the later flight even with the extra hassles. Good luck!

We waited until the Monday after. Is it possible for you to do that? It was so nice to sleep in Sunday morning and know we didn’t have to get anything done. We got to enjoy just laying around and opening gifts from the wedding.

Is it possible to wait a day before leaving for the honeymoon? That will really give you the chance to relax and get everything together. 

If not, I’d do the non-stop and try and sleep on the plane or take a quick nap when you arrive.

On the day after the wedding, I’d go for the later flight.  I’m all for getting in early and enjoying an almost full day at my destination, but if I’m tired and I want to lay down a bit or have a shower and hotel check in time isn’t for another 4 hours, i get bitchy, and it’s not worth saving a little money if I end up in hyper bitch mode.

We had to leave the next morning on a 6am to make our cruise – which meant we had to leave for the airport at 4am – it was awful we were exhausted and cranky and it took us about 2 days to recover after all the excitement of the wedding and then traveling.  If i could do it again I would have waited and done something on Monday instead of the next day – even if it were more expensive.

I promise you, going back to your apartment will not be depressing after your wedding! My husband and I considered going to a hotel the night of our wedding, but reconsidered because there was something exciting about going back to OUR home. Waiting until the Monday after absolutely didn’t detract from the wedding high. Like I said, you get that day to open gifts and do any last minute errands before your trip. If ruining the wedding excitement is all you’re concerned about, I would highly recommend waiting until Monday because I assure you it won’t happen.

krstino1012:  +1  We had an early flight the next morning and it was NOT fun.  OP, if you’re not willing to wait until Monday, I would at least take the later flight.  You are going to have so much adrenaline after the wedding, it’s not like you’re going to fall right asleep.  You don’t want to start your honeymoon exhausted and cranky.

Non stop AND save money?  I’d suffer waking up earlier by a few hours for that.  I hate lay overs.  Intercourse isn’t going to get in the way unless you plan on waiting until morning or the middle of the night to go at it.  In all likely hood if it’s your first time, and you get back to the room by 1030, you’ll be done by midnight anyawys.

When I was engaged, a friend explicitly recommended against taking an early AM honeymoon flight the morning after the wedding. You’re going to feel SO tired afterwards, and it will be very nice to sleep in with your new husband (especially since you’re waiting till marriage for sex)! I would be more ok with the early AM flight if it were not the day right after your wedding. It’s your honeymoon; you should enjoy it!

craigslistgirl:  agree 100% OP, especially if you are waiting until your wedding to have sex – we are no so traditional and spent the night together “taking care of business” before the wedding which was good because we definitely didn’t do it on the wedding night or even the first night of our honeymoon because we were so tired lol

edepp2010:  we actually left the Tuesday morning after our Saturday wedding – it saved us a ton of money on our flight and I was glad to have a day or two at home to come down from my wedding high and pack without feeling rushed. if that’s really not an option I’d go for the super early direct flight. we didn’t get to sleep until 2am on our wedding night and we were STILL up by 8am because we were so excited to go have brunch with our friends who came in from out of town. not being hungover helped that though  🙂
