    We live only about 15 minutes from our wedding locations, so we went home.  It actually ended up being really nice, just being able to relax and officially start off our married life in our own home.  We didn’t leave for the honeymoon until the Wednesday after either.

    We are staying at my (our) apartment.  Driving to the honeymoon the next morning.

    I live downtown and our "after party" is a few blocks away.  Will be nice to crash without having to worry about elevators and messing up a hotel room.

    We are having our ceremony and reception at a hotel. The hotel is giving us  a suite as well.  Which I’m glad because I don’t think I want to jump in a car with my big dress after a full day’s worth of events…lol

    We are staying at a hotel near the Toronto airport so it will be convenient to leave for our honeymoon (in Hawaii!) the next day. My FH and I were also debating whether or not we should stay at a hotel or at our home for our wedding night but decided on staying at a nice hotel to celebrate this once in a lifetime night (you only have one wedding night, right?).  To make it special and romantic we are hiring a company that specializes in decorating the wedding night. I was referred to them by a friend who used their service and loved what they had done to her honeymoon suite. The company is called "A Night of Romance" and their website is: http://www.anightofromance.ca.  I don’t think it matters whether you stay in a hotel or at your home for your wedding night as long as it is special and memorable as it is the first night together as husband and wife!

    We stayed at our house, which is not a far drive from the airport (flight left at 10am the next day for the honeymoon). A hotel near the reception would have been about 20 minutes farther.

    This actually worked out really well, since we were still packing last minute items for the honeymoon before we left! We slacked a little in that department…

    I like the idea of us having our first night as husband and wife be in our own bed, but we may be letting my parents and sisters who will be flying in from Houston stay at our place to save them hotel expenses…if that’s the case we’ll definitely be staying in a hotel, even if it’s just to pass out after our evening wedding festivities!

    We decided to stay at our apartment instead of spending money on a hotel room. Plus we’re doing a brunch the next morning at our apartment’s clubhouse, so we wanted to be nearby to help set up.

    Since our parents and some bridesmaids will be crashing at OUR house, we will be staying in a hotel down the street. It was like $60 a night, so it’s not a suite or anything fancy, but I figure we’re showing up at midnight anyways and leaving at 9, and we’d rather spend our money on something more romantic like dinner or our actual honeymoon =]

    Here’s an alternative: we’re getting married at noon on Sunday, taking the red-eye (coach) to our honeymoon.  Did I mention there are no miles seats available for reclining 1st class..and that paying for 1st class is out of the que$$tion?

    But we have each other.  I don’t plan on wearing a veil or carrying a bouquet, but would scrounge up something inexpensive just to show up at the airline ticket counter and cross my fingers for generosity on the airline’s part.  I just typed that and realized I must be delirious, but with joy it seems.

    We wanted to go home right after and leave for the honeymoon from our place the next morning, but our wedding is on one side of LA and our apartment is on the other–over an hour of driving, some of which is on a poorly lit, windy mountain road, at around midnight. No thanks! We’ll be staying at the closest hotel to our venue on the other side of the hill, and leaving from the hotel for our honeymoon the next morning. I’m going to have to coordinate dress pick-up with my BMs!

    We’re staying in a hotel room, but it’s also because we’ll be getting married in a different town.  We come home the next day and the day after that we’ll leave for our honeymoon.

    @ carochinha – Ugh, we did the same thing.  Got married on a Sunday, got back to our house after the wedding at 10 pm, and left for the airport at 1:30 am.  It was kinda miserable so it was a really good thing we were still in good moods from the wedding.  🙂  Unfortunately, though, the ticket counter lady (and all the flight attendants) said that with the economy the way it is, airlines are packing people on the planes, not really allowing extra seats.  So there was no chance to be moved up to first class…  Our flight attendant did bring us glasses of champagne, though! 

    Hopefully, you guys are luckier than we were.
