This is a spin-off to my last question “would you rather an elaborate proposal or elaborate ring?
Many posters mentioned this question about the wedding and honeymoon would be a great continuation and I couldn’t agree more!!
For context, “elaborate” is referring to the dream wedding and dream honeymoon.
YOU CANT CHOOSE BOTH!!;)
There are no wrong answers!! Everyone is entitled to their dreams <3

I’d rather have the dream wedding, because it’s the part you share with your friends and family. We had a low key honeymoon, didn’t go abroad, and it was great. The wedding was definitely more elaborate than the honeymoon, and I wouldn’t want it the other way around.

I would probably go for the honeymoon. I already feel a little awkward essentially having a giant party to celebrate me (and the husband, of course). Like I know it’s not rational, but even with my 60 person wedding I feel weird about being like ok guys this entire day is all about us. Plus, a honeymoon is more than one day 😉

Looking back, i i wi we’d put more into our honeymoon. Our wedding was awesome, but it was the time away with my husband that I really prized, and I would have loved to make it longer and go somewhere more secluded.

We did the elaborate honeymoon. We had a super nice but low ley wedding at a brewery – but spent the same amount of money we spent on our wedding on our 2 week honeymoon to Africa. It was awesome and I have zero regrets.

Wedding. Hopefully I’ll only get married once and it was amazing to be surrounded by all our loved ones. The honeymoon was lovely but we can go on holidays in the future.

I rather have a dream wedding because that’s what would be shared with family and friends. A dream honeymoon is shared between the two of us and any time that is spent just us is special

Honeymoon. Like @murmurings I feel awkward with having all the focus on me, and so does my OH, so want a wedding that’s as low-key as possible.
By The Way, your poll only has one option to vote for!

Honeymoon! We deliberately DIY-d a lot of our wedding to keep it budget friendly and probably spent twice as much on our honeymoon. It was a 5 week road trip across the USA, our absolute dream trip, when else could we justify taking that trip apart from our honeymoon??
That’s not to say our wedding was scrimped on, we still had a 70 prole, a marquee and a dance floor and a live band, and yummy food, but we made all our own invites /decorations, my dream dress was made for about £350,the grooms tux and bridesmaid dresses were on sale, things like that. It was our dream day but we couldn’t justify spending more on a party.

Honeymoon. No question. Being able to spend two weeks away with DH in some of the most beautiful locations in the world is something I couldn’t pass up.

I don’t know. Probably I’m leaning towards the wedding. I would still take a honeymoon of course but nothing over the top. Perhaps one week at a quiet beach resort somewhere nice.

I would say wedding. DH and I have been on tons of trips and will continue to over our lifetime, but a wedding is (hopefully) once in a lifetime.
