We are wondering when’s best to honeymoon. Getting married in June debating between going right away (the first Wednesday after) or waiting a few months and going in September.
We are worried going right away that it will all be over and done with so fast, but we believe it will feel like more of a honeymoon going right away. Waiting 3 months after in September (which is also my birthday) we are worried it will feel like just another regular vacation and our just married vibes will have worn off. What did you do? Do you think it’s best going after or waiting a few months? Thanks for the input!
We're going right after! Wedding is on Saturday and we're planning on flying out later Sunday night. I see people talking about waiting to take theirs but that wasn't something that had ever crossed our minds
We are leaving right after! Wedding is in May on a Saturday and flying out on Monday. We are going to the Bahamas so I feel like if we waited until later we would be in hurricane season though. So I guess it also depends on the destination!
I’m also thinking of holding off for a few months but I’m worried about the same things you are. I think if it’s not that long after your wedding, it can and will still feel like a true honeymoon. But everyone’s different, looking forward to more insight on this topic lol
We are doing a mini-moon the weekend of the wedding. But we aren't doing our honeymoon until a few months later due to work and not being able to take off enough time for wedding prep and honeymoon. I get the Wednesday before the wedding until the Wednesday after the wedding off but they couldn't extend it past that because we are so short staffed at work. ( I work in the medical field)
We're going a week after our wedding. It just depends on where you're trying to go and what kind of weather that location will have. Some people even wait a whole year afterward. There's no right or wrong time frame to go on your honeymoon.
We're going a week after. You can't expect to fly somewhere the night after when the wedding day is so overwhelming. Some people can do it. Not me lol. Don't feel pressured to go right away. Some people go on their honeymoons a year after their wedding
We went Monday after our Saturday wedding and I'm really glad we did! It would have been weird to just go back to work Monday like normal after the wedding and we really enjoyed the relaxing time together!
We are getting married May 1st and our honeymoon isnt until the end of October. We were dead set on going to New Zealand so we are going during their spring. I like having the break so we can save up and do more of what we wanted to while there.
We are waiting 3 months. It just works better for our schedules. I think it will still feel like a honeymoon because we are going all out for it. It also give me time to change my name before the trip! We also don't have to worry about any of the detail planning (we booked flights and hotels already) until after the wedding. I did not want the stress of flying right after the wedding.
We went right after! We were in such a blissful newlywed bubble I couldn’t have imagined going right back to work after the wedding. Having that time together to relax as husband and wife was really amazing and I don’t think it would’ve had the same feeling if we had done it a couple months later.
That being said there’s nothing wrong with a delayed honeymoon (plenty of people do it) and the perks are it prolongs the excitement, you get more time to save up, you may have more time to take off work, etc. BUT if you have the time off work and the money to go right away, I highly recommend going right away.
My fiance and I are thinking about Iceland in November. What are you guys planning to do there and how are you feeling about the cost of being in Iceland, given that it is the the third most expensive country in the world.
Also, is there anything you would advise based on your research so far.
We are waiting to go away until 3/4 months after the wedding! but we are gonna go somewhere local for just a night or two right after just to have some alone time together (we have a 2 year old at home) we plan to go on a winter honeymoon in Colorado in either January or February.
We're going the Tuesday after our Saturday wedding. We really wanted to just get away right after and enjoy being newlyweds. But it'll be more of a mini moon for us, we'll only be gone for 6 days. Hopefully next year we can go on a bigger trip/honeymoon that we wanted.
I am getting married June 20th and we are planning a mini moon for right after the wedding (just three days out of town to have some time), then we will go on our real honeymoon in Sept. we decided to wait until the in-season rates dropped for our area so we saved about 1K just by waiting.
