Lake Tahoe would make for a really relaxing and romantic mini-moon if that would be an option for even a few weeks after.
We’re seriously considering holding off on our “real honeymoon” until our 1 year anniversary.. we wanted to be able to go somewhere in the carribbean for 7-8 days, and because we have to fly to our wedding location as well, money will be kind of tight around the wedding.
We will probably go to a family friends lake house in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland for 4 days by ourselves to relax and unwind right after the wedding before flying back to Texas. That will leave a whole year for us to save up for our “honeymoon” during our 1st anniversary!

@CARA1978: Honeymoon doesn’t mean a 2 week vacation to some exotic place…
You can have MANY honeymoons throughout the year…
We didn’t have a honeymoon right after the wedding because we moved to another country… So far we have visited 4 cities/destination places in this country which haven’t made a hole in our pockets.
I recommend just having near by trips you can drive to… or stay 1 night a month o every 2 months on a hotel to unwind…
Plus.. you can do like me… when people ask where we went to our honeymooon or why we didn’t do one I simply say “every day is a honeymoon with him” 🙂 cheesy I know…

When my hubby and I got married it was during his family reunion. He doesn’t have a large family and just so happen that his family reunion was going to be hosted in our city. We were already planning to just doing a courthouse ceremony because we both DID NOT want a big wedding. Anywho, our wedding was planned in 6 weeks. It was pretty much DIY . (Thank goodness I’m crafty). I could only afford to take 2 Days off (Fri and the wedding was Sat and returned back to work on Monday. )
We were planning to do a honeymoon on our 1 year anniversary, but hubby was diagnosed with cancer just months after we were married. This summer will be 3 years that we’ve been married and still no honeymoon. But I’m just thankful for everyday that I have him in my life.
Oh. DH is 7 months cancer Free!

- Wedding: July 2014 - Prague
That’s excellent news! Congratulations!
I’m not having a honeymoon. We will be skint broke after the wedding and entertaining with all the international guests. Maybe we’ll be able to get on a train and go to a village for a night or something like that. 😀

Cool, this thread is still active!
Our original plan was to go to the coast the Monday after the wedding but DH’s job screwed up on his PTO so we got no time off. He was back at work Monday. We did go to the coast the following weekend, but it was only for one night. Definately planning on something for 2014 or 2015 because I am tired, tired, tired!

That’s great you at least got one night away! We didn’t do a honeymoon- had Destination Wedding Maui wedding so it was like vacation, honeymoon and wedding in one. We had a big condo and our toddler and 5 family members stayed with us, so not a traditional honeymoon! A separate honeymoon would have been too much time and money right after the wedding.

@CARA1978: We had no plans of taking a Honeymoon, we are going to buy a house if not before the wedding definatly right after. But my Fiance sister is engaged and also planning a wedding this year, she just told the family she is having a destination wedding exactly 1 month after our wedding and my Fiance and I are both standing up in their wedding. So I guess we can consider this our Honeymoon, although we are not going to have any time off for it really 🙁 we will probably only go for 3-4 days ..
