Are you leaving for your honey moon the night of the wedding?

Im trying to figure out when we should leave for our honeymoon. Should we plan to leave the night of our wedding? Or should we spend the night at a hotel and leave the next morning, giving us a first night together as husband and wife?

I like both ideas but im not sure which to do. Were going to hawaii most likely

    We are leaving early Monday morning. On Sunday, we will have a brunch and open presents with immediate family. This gives us the rest of the day to make she we have everything before we leave the next morning.

    My wedding coordinator advised against leaving the next day after the wedding. She suggested leaving a day later. So if you get married on a Saturday, leave on a Monday for your honeymoon. It gives you time to relax after the big day.

    Oh god, I can't even imagine. We didn't even leave the next day and our wedding ended early (7pm) but there was an after party and then we wanted to lounge in bed the next day.

    Our wedding was on Saturday, and we were still tired on Monday when we left. Lots of stuff had to e done on Sunday. Opened presents at IL's and then had to get all decorations and left over cake from various family members, which in turn got delivered to our jobs. I left a note since it was a weekend and they found on Monday morning when office opened.

    We are getting married in our home town (an hour from out home) on a Saturday. We fly out at 7am Tuesday. That way we have time to open gifts, see all the family off and make the trip home with time to spare before we have to leave!

    We got married on a Saturday and left that Tuesday for our honeymoon. It was awesome having two days to recover from the wedding, and we could take our time packing.

    We are getting married on Saturday and leaving to Switzerland on Tuesday morning. It gives us a little time to relax, make sure everything is packed, and visit a little bit with people who came from OOT

    We're doing a DW and our honeymoon is in the same place as our wedding (Hawaii) so we're leaving the house we're staying in the week of the wedding (also where we're getting married) and taking a car to our honeymoon hotel, but it's like a 20 minute drive. If we were flying somewhere for the honeymoon, we'd be leaving the day after the wedding or later. Not the night of the wedding that's crazy

    We're getting married on a Saturday and then flying out at 8:00 the next morning to get on a cruise. We might end up regretting it but it was the trip we really wanted to take so we'll make it work!

    We recently decided, wedding in July, Honeymoon in November. Since the wedding is semi destination we are taking at least 3 weekdays before the wedding. Can't imagine taking so much vacation time in one month!
