    We’re having our reception end at 11 pm as well. We’ll bar hop with the bridal party on a shuttle/bus type of thing for another hour or so and then go to the hotel our wedding guests are staying at. Sunday we’ll sleep at home and then Monday at 6 am we’re flying out to Isla Mujeres!

    We went to a hotel. My advice is just spend the money on the hotel. The way you will feel after the wedding, all that happiness, you won’t want to spend it apart.

    Our reception ends at 11pm. It’s at a little inn in the country and our room is included when we booked it so we will be staying the night there as well as some of our guests. Immediately after the reception though we will have an “after-party” in their bar lounge that they have in the basement! Haven’t made any honeymoon plans yet….

    @yanamari:  Oh..lol. We will probably go back to our house (if we’ve closed by then ) and have sex, watch movies, veg out! Haha. We will be going to Europe in December. Our mini honeymoon will be driving cross country (literally) to get him to CT.

    The night we get married we’re staying in the hotel where our wedding is. The next evening we are flying home and leaving for our honeymoon the morning after.  We wanted to go home first before our honeymoon to “regroup”

    Darling Husband thought we should just stay at our house to save some money. Ummmm yeah, after our nice wedding, our first night as a married couple, I totally want to come sleep at our (at the time) super tiny, messy, cramped house with our dog who at the time was having an issue with howling all night. I laughed, then called his mom to watch the dog and booked a nice hotel in the area. We left for our honeymoon the next day.

    We’ll be going to a kind-of-local (well, 3 hours away) hotel near the airport. This would be a SUPER long drive if we were ending at 11, but we’re having a daytime wedding and should be out of there by 5 or 6 at the latest. We found a very nice hotel that allows you to park at the hotel for your vacation then fly out, then return to your car (way cheaper than airport parking!). I think spending money on a hotel for the two of you is worth it: at least, it really is for us. It’s our wedding night, and we don’t want to spend it seperate–we want our first sleep as man and wife to be together!

    We already live together and our venue is 8 miles away from home; our reception ends around midnight so we’re just going back to our house.

    Our reception ends at 11. Everyone 21+ gets free admission to the other bars that the company that owns our reception space owns, but I’m not sure what we’ll do. We won’t be taking a Honeymoon right after–no time (FI’s semester starts too soon after the wedding), so I think we’re going in December when the semester’s over. Future Mother-In-Law mentioned getting us a hotel room with her points, but I think I’d rather just go home, honestly.

    Many months in advance of our wedding, I booked two nights at my dream hotel in my city so that our wedding night and the next day would be as relaxing and luxurious (not to mention as dreamy and romantic!) as possible. Darling Husband and I waited until we were married to sleep in the same bed or room together or to begin a sexual relationship with each other, and I really wanted our first experiences of intimacy as husband and wife to be in a beautiful, luxurious suite. Because our hotel was 1.5 hours away from our venue, and our reception wasn’t over until very late, we didn’t arrive at the hotel until almost 1:30 a.m. There was no way that I wanted to get up three hours later and head to the airport for our honeymoon, so that’s why I booked two nights there. We then had to head to the airport at 4:30 a.m. the day after that for our eight-day, seven-night, Caribbean honeymoon.

    Our reception ended at 10 pm (Sunday night).  We stayed behind with some friends and family to clean up.  At around 11:30, we dropped a few things off at home (wedding gifts went home with my mil).

    After that we headed to our hotel room in a really nice hotel and had a fantabulous night!!!!!  It was perfect.  I had oot family staying with us so we couldn’t take our honeymoon right away so it was perfect to get away for that night.  Plus we had a nice comfy bed and I had chocolate covered strawberries and champagne waiting for us… hubby was pleasantly surprised.  And it was pretty funny checking in in our wedding attire… there were a few people at that hour at the check in desk and they could not stop staring LOL.  The next day, we enjoyed a buffet breakfast in the hotel and a nice nap before checking out.
