It’s not technically a honeymoon with a vow renewal right? But, we are staying in Seaside for the rest of the week after our VR.

Nope.  We’re leaving the day after and going off to some magical tropical isle.

We’re staying in Hawaii. We’re getting married on Maui and then travelling around to 1 or 2 of the other islands.

Staying at the wedding resort for a week, then off to a secluded boutique hotel for a private getaway at another part of the island after all the guests are gone.

Hi there… the Destination Wedding thing is something I’m only just considering over the last few days.. but I was wondering the same thing last night.  Both my fiance and I don’t really see why we shouldn’t stay at the Cape.. we both love it. However, I’ve been vacationing there for as long as I’ve been alive, I wondered if maybe it’d be nice to go someplace tropical, or a cruise for the Honeymoon.

I’m really not sure, but maybe financially it pays to do the Destination Wedding and Honeymoon at the same spot, or at least very near to eachother as some of the other girls above did/are doing.

Good Luck 🙂

We got married in NC on the beach and then went to Antigua for our honeymoon.

Lots of people asked me the same question. We never really considered it and I am really happy we didn’t stay there for the Honeymoon. The day after the wedding we hung out for awhile and spent some time with our friends and family. It was kinda sad cause everyone was leaving and it was a little depressing. I would not have wanted to stay another 2 weeks after all the fun and crazyness of our wedding was over. It was nice to relocate and have fun at a new destination Smile

We are.  We are arriving on Monday, Wednesday is the wedding, and we are staying another week and a half after that!! We love our destination so why  leave it? 🙂

Staying in Vegas for a brief honeymoon, which technically will begin Sunday at noon (when most family has left), and end in Las Vegas on Tuesday. We then have a few days off at home to reorganize.

we’re staying put to honeymoon at the resort in Tulum where we’re having the wedding.  we’ll be there for a total of 9 days.  after the wedding we just wanted a few days to relax on the beach with books and frosty drinks, maybe take the boat to Cozumel for a day.  plus there are ruins to visit in Tulum, and lots of other architectural/ natural attractions to see.  I think it will be a lovely honeymoon 🙂

We’re getting married at a family friendly resort in Jamaica and then transfering to a more intimate couples resort that’s close by. Since we knew we would be spending at least 2 weeks in Jamiaca for both the wedding and honeymoon, we wanted to feel like we were someplace new and thought that we might need a more romantice change of pace.

Our destination wedding isn’t in a tropical location (we’re getting married 5 hours from home i our college town), so we’re going to be going elsewhere for our honeymoon!

  • Wedding: November 2018 - Majestic Colonial Resort, Punta Cana

We stayed at our wedding location for an extra week but it didn’t end up being the romantic, relaxing vacay I’d imagined at all since our guests’ departure dates were staggered. We only ended up getting 3 days to ourselves… during which it rained every day!

We didn’t mind too much because we’d sort of planned on having a second “real” honeymoon later.

If that’s not part of your plans though, I’d definitely recommend going elsewhere for your honeymoon – even if it’s just the neighbouring resort! – to get that quiet time together that you’re craving.

I am attending a Destination Wedding where the couple will leave the following day to another resort on the same island in order to get some privacy for a week long honeymoon. Fiance and I along with another Bridesmaid or Best Man will also make a mini vacation out of it and transfer to a different resort (to see another part of the island) for 3 days after the wedding. I guess you need to decided if you want to honeymoon with family and friends or alone. My hometown destincation wedding is not a tropical location so we will be leaving for a beach destination 1 or 2 days after the wedding in order to properly say goodbye to our guests who flew in for the wedding.

We will be staying after our wedding. The resort is couples only and we are having a very small wedding…just us and our witnesses. I have a whole list of things I want to do but my sweetie just plans on lounging by the beach…LOL.
