  • Wedding: October 2011

Our wedding is in Oct but we are waiting until Feb. We will however take a mini moon to the mountains a few hours away, just to have some “wedded bliss”. Waiting gives us a chance to recover from the money we spent on the wedding and to sell some of my wedding stuff to afford a really nice honeymoon in St. Lucia (if ya’ll didn’t know Sandals ain’t cheap Laughing lol)

we are waiting, also due to work scheduling – I started a new job this past April and technically wasn’t supposed to take ANY vaca days in the first 6 months, but luckily since I told them about the wedding before I started, they are being a little flexible so that I can take 2 days before the wedding and a few days after so we’re doing a mini-moon.  the “big” honeymoon we are waiting until April for, as we had our hearts set on Italy and really wanted to go when we could take a full 2 weeks!  I was sort of bummed at first but now am glad for lots of the reasons PPs mentioned – I think we’ll be exhausted right after, we’ll be able to put more effort into planning, etc.  also, with a mini-moon, I feel like we are getting 2 vacas, which is of course nice! =)

We are taking our honeymoon a month after our Nov 20th Wedding 🙂 It’ll be worth the wait!

DH and I had to wait almost a year to go on our honeymoon.  Honestly, I preferred it this way.  After the wedding, it gave us something else to look forward too.  Also, we were able to take a much nicer honeymoon than anticipated because we had the additional year to save.

We’re getting married in January, and the earliest possible month we can honeymoon is May. September is even more likely. Why? His work, my work. It’s what happens when new-job limitations intervene with life plans.

We’re doing one or two nights at a resort that happens to be 20 minutes from home and also world-famous for luxury and romance. We’re lucky to have something like that close by, but we’ll be so stressed about getting back to work that I doubt we’ll enjoy it much.

I’m trying to be positive about it: more time to plan! More time to research options! More time to save extra $$! We already know where we’re going (Alaska’s interior) so this trip had better be darn-near perfectly planned by the time we go!

That’s what we’re doing, essentially. We’re getting married in March and probably won’t Honeymoon until June. There are several reasons behind that: I’m going back for my second degree and won’t be off, He’ll have just started a new job, Money, and Weather.

We are postponing because of my school obligations. I don’t feel upset in the slightest – it gives us a chance to save up a bit more money before the honeymoon (the wedding is tapping us pretty hard, and our honeymoon is going to be three weeks long, so it will be pretty expensive).

  • Wedding: April 2012

We’re probably going to wait a few months to Honeymoon in Hawaii. It’s mainly due to budget concerns. It sucks, but like PPs said, I’d rather be able to save up for something big and be relaxed! We’re having the wedding in Santa Barbara, which is about a 6 hour drive from where we live, so we might stay there for a few days.

Our honeymoon plans are currently up in the air as well. The best man offered to pay for our flights (which is SO generous of him, and we feel extremely blessed!) and with the stress of the wedding, my fiance and I would love nothing more than to take a honeymoon right after the wedding.

However, I’m currently in law school and he’s currently looking for a new job so we don’t have to be long distance anymore. Because of my school, the only times of year that will work for our honeymoon are either summer (ie, right after the wedding) or winter break (a full 6 months after the wedding). If I secure a summer clerkship, we’re just not sure if both of us/either of us are going to be able to request a whole week off from our responsibilities, being so low on the totem pole, so to speak. I’m super bummed about that, but we’re putting off making the decision until we get a little bit closer and have a better idea of what our situation will be like next summer. So I completely understand your being bummed about having to wait a few months, but I’m sure you’ll have a great time! 

Look at it this way – at least you’re lucky enough to get to go on a honeymoon at all. That will be special time with your new husband that you’ll remember forever…even if it wasn’t right after the wedding. 🙂 Do you know where you’re going?

We are doing the same thing so dont feel bad. We have to wait to see if Fiance gets this job *fingers crossed* because if he gets it, he has to do special training and cant miss any days. So Im okay with waiting a few months.

On the bright side, since we are going to wait until January or February, itll be nice to escape the cold for a week or so.

Very similar to  @BostonBaby:, we’ll wed in January, but won’t have our Honeymoon until at least Sept. We will have a little mini-moon (an appropriately romanticized roadtrip from wedding location to where we will live), so we’re okay with it.

After spending so much time, money and energy on the wedding (all while we are LD), I am thinking that just being able to relax together alone will be bliss.

Then, after about 8-10 months, it will be SO nice to take a long Honeymoon – that we can save and plan for. It’s something we don’t have to worry our heads or pocketbooks about until after the wedding.
