For a variety of reasons it isn’t feasible for us to take a trip after the wedding. I still really want to take some time off, even if it’s just a few days at home.
It seems that this won’t seem ‘special’ since we already live together and it won’t be like we’re just moving in together.
What are you doing if you aren’t jetting off to your honeymoon right away?

I think you can find ways to make your time special. If you take a few days off, you could take day trips or visit local tourist attractions you never go to. Is it in your budget to stay at a hotel one night? You could do things you don’t do in your normal routine to make it feel like a honeymoon. You could get dressed up and go out for a nice dinner, you could buy a nice bottle of wine, buy flowers for your house, get some nice chocolates. I think the key would be to plan it well and be really intentional about creating the space to make it your honeymoon rather than slipping into doing chores and stuff. Remember–a honeymoon is just a period of time for you and your new husband to focus on each other and relax. It doesn’t matter if it’s camping in your backyard or going to Fiji–it can still be memorable and special.

One thing I would definitely suggest if you do this is to turn off all phones and computers so you two can have uninterupted time.

I took off work for like a week and he was off for two days. The wedding night was spent in a really nice hotel that someone gifted us. We had a Brunch the next morning with anyone that wanted to attend. We actually slept for like afull day…we were so tired!! LOL after that we just spent lots of time together. We opened our wedding gifts too.

we’ll be having a staycation for about a week. we might drive to a bed and breakfast somewhere for a night, but we’ll mostly just spend time together and go on a lot of dates!
