    @kris325:  I was SO EXHAUSTED the night of our wedding, I’m glad Fiance and I didn’t leave for our Honeymoon right away.  But if your reception ends at 6 and things are already scheduled, I think you might be ok!

    I voted “No” before I read that your reception ends so early. Since that’s the case, you might be alright.

    That sounds HORRIBLE. What were they thinking?! I guess the party bus sounds like best case scenario – if you have to do a 6 hour drive, might as well do it with friends in a party bus!

    I wouldn’t do it if I had a choice, but since everything is booked, I guess you do what you have to do. 

    I like to take time to let things sink in – process the wedding, the reception, and just enjoy some personal time with my new husband.

    We booked a cruise for our honeymoon out of Florida. To have the honeymoon directly after the wedding we would have to be on a plane in the wee hours of the morning after the wedding. No way am I doing that. We will be going back to work for a few days, then leaving the following weekend. I just think the stress and exhaustion would be too much otherwise.

    I would never do it the night of the wedding or super early the next day. You need to relax a bit before rushing off because you can get stressed out over being exhausted and it could ruin some of the vacation for you

    Not sure if you took this into consideration: You don’t HAVE to be at the cruise ship at 11. That’s the time they checking people in, you can probably show up closer to 3 or 4pm (depending on when the ship leaves) and have a shorter wait to get checked in and on the ship. When I cruise I am usually one of the first people waiting to get on because I want to start my vacation ASAP but if that means sleeping in longer at home and leaving at a decent hour like 8am you could also do that. Most times they don’t even let you board the ship until after noon, sometimes later. You might hurry up to get there at 11 and end up waiting another 2 hours to get onboard.

    I think renting a party bus, and driving 6 hours would be more costly than if you got airline tickets down there, and took a bus back after

    Since you can’t change the itinerary, I would take the Bridesmaid or Best Man up on her offer. It avoids you having to drive which is great bc you will be exhausted after the wedding. Then you can rest up at the hotel before your cruise.

    What does the groom think?  I’m assuming that after the reception I will be DONE with my family and his, and my Fiance and I are going to go away and bliss out by ourselves.

    We’re marrying on a Saturday and flying out for our honeymoon the following Tuesday.  I read somewhere that Tuesday is the best day to fly price-wise, and I’m hoping we’ll have recovered by then.

    It wouldn’t be my choice, but if its already paid for and non refundable, why even ask? I wouldn’t want a bunch of people telling me how awful my honeymoon would be lol.
