    Did you take one? Where did you go and for how long?

    Did you go right after your wedding or a little while later?

    Everyone wants to know where we’re gonna go for our (keeping in mind I don’t even have a set wedding date yet). I feel like it’s just too much money to go right after the wedding I’d rather wait and take a vacation for our first anniversary.

    I feel like it was different back when it wasn’t the couple that paid for the wedding but we’re paying for most everything although we are going inexpensive.

    What’s your opinion?

    We went on a week long honeymoon to La Jolla, CA about 6 weeks after our wedding. We tried to keep our wedding as inexpensive as possible, but things do add up. After the wedding, we also really just wanted to relax at home for awhile. I think it makes sense to save up and wait for the honeymoon when you have the time, money and energy to enjoy yourselves. Celebrating your anniversary with a trip sounds like a great idea. You could also look into something like a mini-honeymoon close to home, like a romantic picnic, weekend away or something, as a more immediate post-wedding celebration if you really wanted one. Whatever works for the both of you is the right thing to do.

    We did a week in Vancouver the day after the wedding. It was awesome to get away and not have to deal with day to day stuff after so much wedding planning. I was mainly running the show for the wedding – I would give my husband tasks to do and he would execute them, but I was the one who had to keep track of everything and who did most of the leg work. My husband and I decided he would be point man on the honeymoon. He would run things by me occasionally, but other than that, all I needed to do was pack. I liked this arrangement.

    We went to St. Lucia. It was nice!

    One thing we did that I highly recommend: We booked our wedding night hotel for 2 nights and left for the honeymoon the following morning. It was SO nice to have a day to just relax together and unwind after all the craziness, before having to get up at 5 a.m. to go to the airport and travel all day. That “day off” in between was seriously one of the best, happiest, most relaxing days of my life.

    We went on a week long cruise to the Bahamas and then spent 3 days at an all inclusive in the Dominican Republic.
    I agree with TwoSapphires – I wish we had taken that extra day just to relax and be with each other. There was SO much drama that went along with my wedding that it really kinda soured the beginning of our honeymoon. We left the next morning at 4am for the airport and that was just plain rough

    Agreed. The day after your wedding, you need your sleep. We did a leisurely breakfast with family the next day and then left for our honeymoon in the afternoon, but we didn’t go far for our honeymoon, so that was possible. Also, I wouldn’t want to go somewhere like Europe right after where it is a long trip to get there and there are lots of sights you don’t want to miss because who knows when you will be back. If you do your honeymoon right after, I would recommend a place that is fairly easy to get to and has some fun things to do if you feel inspired, but will largely just be relaxing. I fell asleep on the plane before it even left the tarmac.

    We went on a cruise to the Bahamas. We left a day and a half or two days after our wedding and were going for the better part of a week.
