    We’re going on a mini-moon the day after for a few days and then 4 months later we’re going on our honeymoon once our schedules allow.

    We’re leaving the very next morning. I wanted to wait a couple of days inbetween, but my Fiance insisted we leave as soon as possible after the wedding. I think it’s crazy, but should be fun!

    We’re leaving the Tuesday after, but it will still feel hectic. Our wedding is on a Saturday, but we rented out the lodge for 3 nights and will be checking out Monday morning, driving back to town, packing like mad, and departing Tuesday early AM!

    Married Sunday, left 6am Tuesday.  We didnt want to rush out of there the next day, but didnt want to waste any vacation time or go back to work.

    We got married on a Saturday and left the Wednesday after, One of my bridesmaids flew out from Missouri to CAli for the wedding and she stayed a couple days after so wanted to spend time with her. I knew i didnt want to fly out the next day, cause i knew we would just want to relax since it was such a busy day before, and last thing i want is to sit on an uncomfortable plane when all i want to do is rest. Its jsut better to wait a couple days 🙂 in my opinion

    We are getting married on a Sunday, leaving for the honeymoon on saturday. Were going on a cruise, and that’s when it leaves. He works from home, but I get 2weeks vacation. I can’t imagine getting married on a Sunday and then going back to work on Monday(I’m a pediatric resident) so were getting married on the first day of my vacation and leaving in the middle. But it’ll be nice not to stress about packing and getting ready beforehand since my job is insane.

    @adnama: WELL i’m not engaged yet but I would really love to leave 2 days after the wedding. My sister had her wedding also on a Saturday, was able to spend Sunday at brunch and spending time with her Out of Town guests and basking in newlywed bliss 🙂 That is what I’m going for also !

    Getting married in 12 days and leaving for the honeymoon 5 weeks after that.

    We timed our honeymoon to go to a golf tournament and an art festival (two separate events… not a golf tournament/art festival… butthat’d be fun) in So. Cal. that we want to attend, but it wouldn’t have worked to do our wedding any closer to those dates than we are.

    We went to many weekend getaways and minimoon.
