    I’m going to need a vacation after all of the wedding planning, lol. So we’re planning ours for right after, but I can understand that some may need to wait.

    I’ve always wanted to take the honeymoon right after the wedding. I can’t imagine going back to work Monday after getting married. It just seems so… anticlimactic or something. But that’s me! If it makes more sense financially to go later and you don’t mind going right back to work, you should do that. Or maybe take a few days off and do a mini-honeymoon for now?

    We are taking a cheap mini vacation right after the wedding for about 5 days.  Then 4 months down the road we will be taking a 2 week vacation down South.

    I want the honeymoon of my dreams and it will not be cheap. We wont be able to afford it right after the wedding costs. So we will take a few months to save. I also have alot of weddings and birthdays RIGHT after my wedding so its just not the ideal time.

    For me personally, the honeymoon is right after the wedding.  Anything else is just a vacation.

    I agree what about a cheap mini vacation right after the wedding for 2-5 days (depending on what you want to do). We went in Feb (instead of the last week of Oct) because Darling Husband could not take time off due to working retail and the holidays. Magic wasn’t lost, but I do wish we had a few days to ourselves after the wedding.

    We’re only going on our honeymoon this july (we’ll have been married 1yr & 7months by then). It just wasn’t convenient between jobs, school, sports & life. I went to school the monday after my wedding & Darling Husband was working on the tuesday. It was interesting 🙂

    @pinkshoes:  I absolutely agree. It’s an ideal flow to go right from the wedding to the honeymoon. I can’t imagine having my wedding and then going back to work! For me, there is never a “perfect” time and there will always be budget constraints. We are just going to take the plunge. These are the moments we look back on and remember 🙂

    Wait a few months.  You’re going to have fun setting up your home, and you’re going to need money to set that all up.   You’re going to need a few months to really appreciate and relax during your honeymoon, house done :check, wedding done: check, now time to relax.

    We waited to take our honeymoon.  I had just moved away from my family, so they were all down for our wedding.  Darling Husband took off a few days after the wedding and we did stuff around here with my family for a couple of days.  Then we did a night in a hotel on the  beach, then home.

    We went a few months later for a week at the beach.  It was much more relaxing, move finished/house set up and wedding done.
