    We went home for a few hours for a nap (and to open our gifts!). Then, we went to an after-party a friend hosted at his home, where we stayed for the night. Then we were on our way to the honeymoon!

    Mines a combo of answers….

    After the reception we’re >planning< on going to the hotel either to the bar for an after party or straight to sleep, morning after brunch (is spending the night in a hotel a mini-moon?)

    THEN back home.

    Honeymoon a month later.

    we spent the night at a hotel.

    the next day we went back to parents’ home for brunch and to visit more with family.

    my husband’s in the military and i still lived at home with my parents, so we spent the next 2 days packing up my stuff to move.

    we didn’t go on our honeymoon right away because we had a lot to take care of on the military side (getting housing, putting me into the system, etc) and it would have just been too much. we did go on a mini-moon to disneyland 3 weeks after our wedding and last month we went on our real honeymoon to hawaii.

    i kinda liked having everything spread out. it seemed to make the whole wedding experience last longer 🙂

    Not planned yet, but our wedding is Saturday and I would like to leave for the honeymoon Sunday or Monday (Monday would probably be better since I’ll be sleep deprived right after the wedding lol). We are planning to spend Saturday night at a hotel.

    Spent the wedding night in a hotel suite, then went to my parents house the next day and stayed the night there after opening gifts, then drove to our home town the next day to stay a night at our house/organize for honeymoon, finish packing, and get to bed early, left on our honeymoon the next early a.m.

    I chose other. We stayed in a hotel the night of our wedding and then left for our honeymoon the next day. We didn’t go home… Well, I suppose technically we did as we stopped at home very briefly to drop off wedding things and pick up honeymoon suitcases, but it was only for a few hours.

    We got married while ON our honeymoon.  A weddingmoon!  The wedding was on day 5 of our 11 day trip.

    We went back to our hotel for the night.   The very next day (the day of the 3rd night) we slept in, got breakfast, then did a driving tour and hiked Banff National Park’s Icefields Parkway.  We liked the lodge where we married so much we stayed a 3rd night.


    Mini-moons are done in the US too, just a night or two away with no distractions.  If the options are just go home, or a mini-moon – do a mini-moon!

    We eloped at 9am, so after, we did some pictures and then drove down to Fredericksburg, TX, a quaint little town where we spent the night. The following day we drove to Bandera, another quaint TX town where we met up with friends for our annual weekend there.

    We didn’t have a honeymoon since we had just gone to Mexico for vacation the month prior. So we had a sort of “minimoon” with friends that weekend.

    We live in City A, are getting married in City B, and are flying out of City C for our honeymoon.

    Drive from Home City A to Wedding City B on Friday. Stay in a hotel, separately, on Friday night.

    Married Saturday. Stay in hotel in City B Saturday night.

    Sunday, drive stuff back to City A and drop it off at home. Drive to City C and stay in hotel overnight there on Sunday night.

    Monday morning get on flight to honeymoon.

    So we have two nights between our wedding and honeymoon, but both will be spent in a hotel because of logistical reasons. If we were flying out of our hometown, I’d stay at home on Sunday night. But I would definitely stay at a hotel the night of the wedding! Let someone else clean up 🙂

    We stayed in a near-by hotel (that guests were NOT staying at) and went home the next day.  A day after that we left for our honeymoon.
