Honeymoons

OK ladies. When you left your reception where did you go? Did you immediately start your honeymoon? Did you go home, to an airport, or to a honeymoon suite? Did you put your honeymoon off for awhile? 

We are discussing if we want to immediately head to the airport and get our flight to Hawaii and spend our first night as husband and wife in our suite there or get a suite near our venue and leave the next morning. My FI says he really wants our first night as husband and wife to be amazing. I think every night with him is amazing but I understand what he is saying.

 My Fiance and I will be going straight from reception to our honeymoon. I want it to be special. It's our first night together as well as our first night together as husband and wife.

We did not go straight to our honeymoon, after the reception we stayed in the honeymoon suite for two more nights. 

We then went to work for a week because I had to attend my work retreat.  It was fun going back to work and showing everyone a few pictures that we had from a bridal party member's Ipad (co-worker).  After the work retreat we went on a cruise Royal Caribbean Cruise to the Bahamas, St. Martin and St. Thomas.  We loved every day of the 7 that we spent on the ship!

 Well since all we had was a quick ceremony, the second after we signed our "contract", we went home and grabbed bags that were packed the night before and got on our flight to Vegas.  It was awesome.  We were still dressed from the wedding and the pilot was kind enough to detour so we could see the Grand Canyon on our way to Vegas!  

 

I have no idea how to do it for the remix.....he's giving me control over destination and I've got it picked out but I don't know how to tell him where (;

 We don't go away until a couple of weeks after our wedding. 

My brother go married the week after us and then we waited for all our UK guests to fly one before leaving. We only had a mini-moon because we'd had a pre-wedding trip to DisneyWorld, and we are planning a trip to San Francisco for our 1st anniversary

Our wedding reception was at the Marriott and they gave us a free honeymoon suite, so we spent our first night as husband and wife there. We went home the next dayand slept home that night, then flew out to Hawaii super early the next morning.

 we chose to have our wedding on a sunday.  not only to save money, but because we had some important people who were out of town guests...like wedding party people.  we had an evening wedding and reception.  after the reception we went to our hotel room.  we got married at a hotel.  the next morning we went to the airport for our honeymoon in antigua.  our reception didnt have dancing because some of the wedding guests would have been offended.  so it wasnt super late when we got to the hotel room.  we actually got some sleep before we had to get up and go to the airport.  if you know you are gonna have a really late night at your reception, then i recommend staying in town for a day and relaxing before you go on your honeymoon.

i do want to point something out.  if you choose to wait a little while to have your honeymoon you need to make it a priority.  set a timeline for when you want to have had your honeymoon by, and stick to that date.  my parents planned to have their honeymoon later and never got around to it.  before they knew it they had kids and it just wasn't a piority.  they always hated that they never had one.  now my dad is gone.  they were married 41.5 years.  i have seen how much a honeymoon can bring together a couple.  please make it a piority.  whatever you choose.

something else i wanted to add is that my dh and i have decided that every anv is gonna be something we celebrate with a really nice meal and a hotel room at least.  every 5  years we plan to go off somewhere and have at least a weekend together.  even if it is just 2 hours away.  

my parents never really did anything like that.  and i really think their marriage lacked a lot of  passion.  that is something i really wanted in mine.

wish you luck.  i hope that whatever you choose you really enjoy your special time together.

 We stayed at the hotel where most of our guests were staying and unfortunately did not leave on our honeymoon until the weekend after bc we took a cruise and cruises leave on Sunday. Since got married on a Sunday we had to wait a week!

 SO super awkward edit ** I didn't go to Hawaii on our honeymoon, LOL! We went to Hawaii this summer, I have no idea why I said that. Then I read krosa's post and totally remember we went to Antigua. Wow, so weird of me!
