Well, the way I see it is, you’ll still be newlyweds, so the freshness of a new situation will still be upon you!  just go with what life gives you =)

Fiance and I will have a minimoon (which essentially will be a long weekend getaway) after we’re married, but we won’t actually have a real honeymoon until probably a year or so after the fact.

we also had a minimoon the weekend of our wedding, but our real honeymoon is about 2 months after our wedding.  several factors played into this, but we’re still super excited to get away.

@Riley2011: Hi, welcome to the hive!

To answer your question, I took my honeymoon 5 months after my wedding.  We had to save up for our hm.  We did have a mini-moon where we went to NYC right after the wedding.

We are having our honeymoon 9 months after our wedding!  My FH works for a MLB team, so we had to plan our wedding/honeymoon around baseball season.  We are getting married in February (before spring training) and will be honeymooning in November after the season is over.  We are doing a 3 day minimoon after our wedding, so we’ll have a little getaway but the real fun happens in November!

We were married on Halloween and are taking our Honeymoon in February, you bet our honeymoon is gonna feel like a honeymoon Tongue out  We’re headed to Bora Bora / Moorea and I think every minute will feel like a honeymon vs a vacation. We’ll make it!

lol, i’m 7 months out and we still haven’t had an official honeymoon.  i thought a honeymoon was a vacation, so not sure what advice you are seeking.  do it when you can and just have fun i guess.

We went about 4 weeks after our wedding – we had another ceremony/reception in between.  It was great – it gave us even more to look forward to!

We were in a similar situation as my husband is in medical school. After the wedding, we spent 3 days at a resort a few hours away. We didn’t take our honeymoon until 3 months later. I thought it felt like a vacation but that is how I would have felt about a honeymoon too. It was really nice to not have to worry about packing to go out of the country in addition to preparing for the wedding. I am actually very glad that there was some time between our wedding and honeymoon (although 3 months was kind of pushing it!)

A honeymoon is about you and your new husband vacationing and celebrating your love- it doesn’t matter when it is! 🙂

My sister was married in September and they won’t be honeymooning until April of next year. They are both in the military so they have to wait until they both can get leave at the same time. They actually are happy about it b/c they closed on their home 2 weeks before the wedding. They have had time to do thank you cards, do some painting and decorating, and basically get settled into married life before the honeymoon.

We’re leaving on our honeymoon about three weeks after we get married.  We are doing a cruise that leaves out of Venice, Italy and the ship is due to leave the Monday morning after our Saturday wedding.  Being in the states, we did not want to chance any travel/flight issues holding us up, so decided to book the sailing that leaves a few weeks later! 

We still rented a wedding suite at a downtown hotel for our wedding night, and have arranged to fly out early and spend a few days in Italy, kicking off our marriage, so I’m not concerned about the gap.

A good friend just got married in October, and they aren’t leaving for their honeymoon until next week (she had a sister getting married in between, so they didn’t want to “rush” through their honeymoon to get to these other family events).  They are just as excited about it as though they just got married, and I know I’ll feel the same!  No matter when you pick, I think it is all about how you approach the trip!
