    We don’t have the time or money, so we’re planning our "honeymoon" for our one year anniversary! While a bit disappointing, it will give us something to look forward to, and it will spread out the fun times!

    We went through the same thing when we said were were not immediately going on a honeymoon. People just couldn’t understand that. Personally we chose to take that $3000 and put it towards the down payment on our new house. We plan to take a small road-trip type vacation this summer and then wait until next year to take a big vacation.


    I don’t think ur crazy at all for skipping the honeymoon! Everyone has different priorities and if spending time and money on a honeymoon isnt one of yours.. then its your business!

     We went to orlando for the 2 days after the wedding. It’s only about a 2 hour drive and we ended up having free hotel stay. I don’t really want to call it a honeymoon though. We’re hoping to go on a real trip this year. I don’t think it’s strange at all. Do what feels right for you!

    We’re taking a "mini-moon", I guess you could call it. We’re taking 3 days in a cabin in a state park about 2 hours away. I haven’t gotten any comments one way or another about what we’re doing. I think it’s perfectly acceptable to prioritize and do what you think is best for the two of you.

    We’re having a honeymoon, but we’re not leaving until 2 days after the wedding. We’re taking one because we feel that if we take it later, it would be more of a "vacation" than a "honeymoon". BUT I see where you’re coming from. I completely understand. Especailly with the economy like it is. Fiance and I have been saving for our honeymoon since BEFORE we got engaged.


    I don’t think you two are weird, not one bit. It’s smart, and using your head. 🙂

    We recently decided to cut our honeymoon too. Instead we are spending a few extra days in the area our wedding will be. Everyone thinks we’re crazy, but it’s the right choice for us. We werent planning to buy ah oem this year, but due to the economy and tax breaks, its crazy for us not to. So we are making other sacrifices to afford the wedding and home. I don’t think your crazy, I think its smart to do whats right for you.

     You can always take one later, that’s what we plan to do.

    Taking a honeymoon was important to me.  You can never really have another *honeymoon.*  Sure you can take vacations, but if you regret not taking one, it’s not something you can ever get back.
