We stayed in a hotel the wedding night, did a family brunch the day after, then went back to the apartment to pack for our 3-night honeymoon only 90 miles away. So technically speaking we DID go “somewhere”, but it was local and great to take a few days off from life.

I can’t deny that I’m jealous of others who are going to the Caribbean, Tahiti, Hawaii, etc… but we just didn’t have the vacation time or energy for such a trip. Even if you aren’t going on a fabulous honeymoon, I’d highly recommend staying in a hotel for a few days before you come back to the harsh reality of a house filled with wedding crap that’s no longer relevant. ๐Ÿ™‚

We had a suite for our wedding night and that will more than likely be our honeymoon. We are thinking of saving up for a nice trip for our anniversary but for now thats the plan.

We were originally going to do a rail trip, but it’s tabled for now. We’re broke. We’re probably going to go camping locally for a few days, a place we normally go – assuming I can get time off, as I have no idea what my employment status will be in May.

Fiance is getting laid off in a couple of weeks, so unless he lands a job, we will be doing nothing.  We had planned to go to Quebec City for a few nights then and on a cruise/down south in April, but both are on hold for now.

I am seriously bummed, but there’s not much that can be done about it, so we will just have to make the best of it!

@MuchGreater: We went to a fabulous hotel for our wedding night, checked out at 11 (not noon as I thought) and did a little shopping around Kansas City. We ate at Dave & Busters, played some games and headed home for a bonfire with my family. It was okay; nice to just be together but not nearly enough time to enjoy being married. Thanksgiving weekend is the first weekend since the wedding we’ve had time to just be together so I really wish we’d had more than one night. I’m still hoping for a cruise or vacation this summer but he seems to think we have years to do this before kids. We’ll see. Thanks for asking!

We planned on driving a whole hour to the coast but found out that it is Rhodedendron Festival weekend and the coast will be overrun with tourists. So, we are taking a pass and have decided (ok, Mr.A decided) that we will head East instead and go visit his brother since a babysitter has already been arranged. (He is incarcerated… love him but NOT how I want to spend my first days as Mrs.Awesome!) I have looked around the area and there is seriously nothing to do unless we want to go rock hunting & to the rock museum. *Sigh* Guess its a great way to save money. ๐Ÿ™‚

We’re not going anywhere. We have 3 kids under 5 and NO ONE wants them for a week and I refuse to take them with me, so until their 10 or so and grandma can comfortably watch them we’re honeymoon-less.

@DeadUtopia: I had a pre-wedding dream the other night….. that we had an amazing church service; big dress, him (yummy) in a suit and all the family all around us. After the service I looked to him and asked where we were going for the reception and he said, “Oh sorry honey, I forgot to book a hotel.” So I said, “Ah well, at least we have the honeymoon.” To which, he replied, “Woops, I forgot to book the honeymoon too….” I was gutted and woke up ready to cry.

Thank God it was just a dream. I can’t imagine not taking the time out to celebrate with some real quality time with firends and family at a reception and then time alone as a couple on honeymoon. Life is too short to not take the time for these things. You’ll be long enough living the boring day to day things. My brother didn’t have a honeymoon and regrets it and warned me to make that time special.

We went to a bed and breakfast on the bourbon trail in Kentucky for two nights. It was super relaxing, which was exactly what we needed :).

We can’t afford the honeymoon of our dreams right now. We’ve talked about renting a small cabin in the mountains for a few days after the wedding, but we haven’t even made those plans officially. We’ve also said we’ll go for our 1-year anniversary or something like that, but we’re talking about TTC starting next summer so we’ll have to see. Or we could go somewhere to make the baby. ๐Ÿ˜‰ haha.
