    My dream wedding is not elaborate. Eventhough dream honeymoon would not be exactly elaborate but it’s significantly more than the wedding.

    Honeymoon. Never was really in to putting on a show for friends or family which is why my dream wedding is going to be more intimate. And even though it will be nice to have everyone celebrate us, I imagine going anywhere in the world for however long we want doing luxurious things just the two of us as newly weds would be even more special.

    Honeymoon! We are doing a small ceremony halfway during our France trip, so its kind of like a wedding and honeymoon combined.

    Definitely the wedding! It’s a once in a lifetime thing. Me and my FH are in our early 20s and plan on having kids 10 years from now, which means we’ll be able to travel together and have lots of “honeymoons” 🥰

    I don’t want anything in my life that is “detailed and complicated in design and planning; involving many carefully arranged parts or details.” Elegant, sometimes; expensive, sometimes; elaborate, never. No Baroque for me.

    Honeymoon for sure! The wedding is only one day and it doesn’t have to be elaborate to be great. We went to a 5 star resort in Mexico for our honeymoon because we couldn’t afford something elaborate. While we did have an amazing time, I would have loved to go to Hawaii, the Maldives or Bora Bora instead.

    We were fortunate to have both, but if I had to choose one I would go with the elaborate wedding. Can always plan an extravagant trip down the road, but you only get one chance to host all of your nearest and dearest for an incredible celebration. Might as well make it special and over the top!

    No contest, as we DID forego the elaborate wedding for an elaborate honeymoon.

    We kind of jumped the gun and booked our wedding at our “dream venue” almost immediately after being engaged (a vineyard that backed onto a lake). Once we started planning, we realized how insanely expensive this venue would be in comparison to all other venues in our city… The rental fee ALONE was 5,000$ more than anywhere else and that literally only included the space. No food, decor, nothing.

    We ended up switching venues halfway through planning and saving over 15,000$… and put that money towards the trip of a lifetime. We got to take a one month honeymoon to Australia, New Zealand and French Polynesia with the money we saved.
