    @cantwaittobemrsf:  our entire wedding was all within a mile of our house! So we went home after! LOL our wedding ended at 11pm, by the time we got our stuff in the car it was almost midnight. We went home, undressed and pretty much passed out lol then the next day (Sun) we did laundry haha and prepared for our honeymoon (we left on Tues night)
    So I have no problem saying to go home!

    @cantwaittobemrsf:  We stayed in a hotel even though we were about 20 minutes from home, just because a) the house was a mess after getting ready there and I didn’t want to go home on my wedding night to that and b) we were having breakfast in the morning with our guests, mostly DH’s family, that had stayed in the hotel because they lived further away.


    I have a friend who stayed at home after their wedding, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it – less expenses!

    Nothing wrong with going home.  You get to cuddle and sleep in your own comfy bed for the night with no worries about getting up early to check out or travel the next morning.

    We went home after the wedding and I’m so glad we did. As long as it takes to get bridal ready, you have to deconstruct all of that too!! I wanted my shower, my makeup supplies and remover, my bath towels. It was preferable to me. But we also only got about 4 hours of sleep ebfore leaving for the honeymoon, so that was not worth spending $100+ for a hotel room for such a short amount of time.

    And it wasn’t anticlimatic. It was relaxing and we got to christen our marital bed that night 😉

    We are getting married here in town and there is really no reason why we cannot just go home to spend the night but NO WAY! It is a special night and I would rather stay in a nice room with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub 🙂

    We didn’t live together before our wedding so going “home” wasn’t quite an option; however, we just stayed the night at the hotel by the airport. We were only there for about seven hours (early flight the next day). It’s a pretty decent hotel but also budget friendly. Worked great for us because we also wanted to save our “splurge” money for our honeymoon!

    If staying out/away somewhere on your wedding night isn’t important to you, then you definitely don’t have to! Your plan sounds great for you guys!

    @cantwaittobemrsf:  Our reception is 40 minutes away, we haven’t decided yet. I don’t want Fiance to abstain from drinking wine if he wants to in order  to drive … but at the same time I don’t feel like changing and all just to get in the car. It’ll probably be more practical to sleep directly at the inn, on site.

    We actually had a free room as part of our wedding package from our venue.  I was planning on just going home after my wedding, thought I’d be in bed just a little after midnight and get plenty of sleep before our thank you brunch.  That didn’t happen, we ended up partying all night and didn’t get to bed until 5AM or 6AM; which means the thank you brunch I scheduled around 10AM was awful lol.

    @cantwaittobemrsf:  If our wedding was close enough to go home, we would have gone home!

    Encore Bride here…

    In truth you can do whatever it is you like…

    But as someone who has been married twice now… I have to tell you that the Honeymoon is awesome… it is as GOOD or BETTER than the whole getting married thing

    I could not imagine coming back home after such a FABULOUS DAY…

    A Night in a Hotel, a little pampering… and many a “Mini-moon” for a few days is a FANTASTIC way to start your marriage if you cannot afford a full on Honeymoon at this time.

    I encourage EVERY couple to think about doing something… even if it is that one night away

    In truth Weddings are a lot of work… and a lot of emotions…

    You’ll be exhausted when all is said & done… having a nice way to connect with your New Hubby and recharge is beyond belief.

    Both of my Honeymoons, have been some of the best days of my life.

    I say go for it…

    The house, the bills, the dishes, the laundry… they’ll still be there when you get back home

    Make the romance go a little bit further !!

    This Time Round:  That is what we will be doing! Staying in a luxury B&B or self contained apartment in the middle of the bush haha.  Just drinking it all in, reflecting on the day and reconnecting with each other.  I think with our hectic lifestyle, I am looking forward to that more than the wedding!
