    I like it - virtually free and time for you to decompress and have total down time : (11 votes)

    I think it would be a let-down - skip it and go back in to work Monday so you're getting paid! : (0 votes)

    maybe go away the night or 2 after the wedding, and in your absence, hire someone you trust to clean your house.  It will not feel like a vacation if you have wedding stuff everywhere. Seriously!

    Why not have a slummymoon in combination with a brief, local getaway as well? It would be cost-effective and give you more time to spend with each other. 🙂

    Definitely don’t go back to work on Monday. If you can take the time off, then do, and just enjoy yourself and each other. I’d personally (and did) want to go away at least for a night together to some place local, but that’s just me. If you’re homebodies and like just being at home then by all means have a slummymoon. 🙂

    I think it sounds wonderful– but I’d couple it with doing some of the touristy things in your town, or nearby (just a day trip or two, not an expensive overnight).  Spend time walking through little towns together, or parks, or whatever does it for you.

    I’m so glad we waited to have our official honeymoon until next June (we got married a few weeks ago).  Right after the wedding, I was pretty worn out.  We went to Las Vegas for a few days, as my husband had never been there, and then came back here to England.  If we had gone anywhere else, it would’ve been wasted on me, as I didn’t want to go out and sightsee like crazy and be BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!!

    Plus, it gives us something else to look forward to, for next year.  And lots more time to SAVE!

    This is what we’re doing. I still have classes, and actually have two midterms that week. So home it is! I’m glad though – I’m so tired.

    Every area has its own great getaways – if you can afford it I think it’s a great idea to do something local, or even just get on hotwire/priceline to find some good hotel deals.

    But I’m the kind of person that would go absolutely bonkers doing nothing and sitting at home for a week.

    I think it would be hard to avoid taking calls, visitors, the computer and emails, cleaning, etc. I think it would be better to take a 2-3 days and stay in a nice hotel nearby. Since you know the area so well, maybe you could check out Bellenga’s HG for travel – betterbidding.com and get a great deal.
