    We did a honeymoon and we’re following up with a mini-moon, lol. We’re actually going in June 2010 on a cruise with a bunch of friends, right around our 1 year anniversary! HA! (Dec and June are OUR last two vacays before baby-making too! glad i’m not alone in wanting a blow out before that! ha!)

    Darling Husband actually said that while the honeymoon was great, it’d be a lot of fun to go with friends so that we could hang out as a group after dinner and stuff or go to the bars and be silly. We love each other’s company, but we don’t just go to a bar and hang out together. We’d rather sip a drink in bed. 

    I don’t think inviting friends kills the romance at all! As long as you still get some dinners together and obviously, you aren’t sharing a room with them! 

    Edit: Our december crusie we’re going with my parents, lol

    we went on a mini-moon before the honeymoon…but we didn’t post-pone our honeymoon that much.  We just took a couple days and stayed in a cute little town in Western MI before heading out to our Italian adventure.

    We booked all our hotels through hotwire and paid less than $100 for 4-5 star hotels.  It was worth it!

    But we’re also planning a weekend cruise with friends in the fall because it’s so cheap now.  If you have friends you both get along with well, I think a friends vacation can be a blast!

    We’re not sure, but because of the timing of our wedding, we’ll probably go for a minimoon right after, and then go on a honeymoon on our first anniversary (or maybe later…like our 10th or 25th, or something).

    There has been talk about just going on a minimoon then maybe doing a honeymoon over the summer. I’m not that fond of the idea. Vacation during summer = more money. And I don’t want to keep going to cool places without the kids. I’m kind of on the fence about the whole minimoon thing right now.

    We did a minimoon for three days after the wedding. Initially we had a big trip to Thailand planned (my mom has a time share there). Then she decided that SHE wanted to come too…. Umm. It was her house so we figured we would invite two other couples as well, and travel a little more. Both couples can’t go anymore (money, work, etc) so now we are deciding if the free lodging is worth honeymooning with my mother. 🙂 I really hope we decide to do SOMETHING big.
