Its a bummer that your friend is having the destination wedding a few weeks after your wedding.  I can see how going on both a honeymoon and to her wedding would be a financial strain. I don’t think there is anything wrong with combining both trips and staying there a little longer.  I think you would still enjoy your time together. You can always do a weekend getaway somewhere close to home right after your wedding so it could feel a bit more like a honeymoon.

I don’t think it is a problem to stay the week before your bf’s wedding.  I don’t think you should stay the week after their wedding.  They may want the alone time.

Is there any place near the destination wedding site that you could go to instead of that actual place?  I would probably go a week before the wedding to someplace near the wedding site and then travel to the wedding site when you normally would have arrived.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with taking a late honeymoon . . . my fiance and I are going to wait 8 months after the wedding to take ours.  Long story, but we already committed to travel to Russia this summer before we got engaged, and I don’t get a ton of vacation time.  It’s going to feel honeymoonish to us, because we are going to go to Fiji and live it up, just as if we had gone on the honeymoon right after the wedding.  It’s all what you make of it 🙂

I’m in a similar situation, except my wedding is the “destination wedding” for everyone else.  I live in the destination, but everyone else will have to travel.  My friend who is also getting married is getting married in August.  I’m one of her bridesmaids and she’s one of mine.  My wedding is in November.  She and her fiance decided that to save money, they would make the tail end of their trip for my wedding their honeymoon.  I live in the Keys, which is where my wedding is taking place, so they have booked a cruise that departs from Miami for their honeymoon and will be leaving on that the day after our wedding. 

I would make the most of the one trip and turn the latter portion of it into your honeymoon…whether it be going to another resort in the area, another island, on a cruise, etc.  Financially speaking, I think that would make the most sense and it is still your honeymoon.
