Timeline or $?

FI and I are looking at flights for our HM. Since we want to fly out during the biggest flying week of the year (week after Christmas), the costs are insane! We've realized if we move the honeymoon out by a week we'll save close to $2000 between flights and the cruise price itself. I bought insurance on the cruise so it'll cost nothing to move it. So in your opinion is it more important to save the money, or is it more important to be "wisked away" right after the wedding?


I say $, he says go right after...

i'm torn too...i like the idea of going right after....but we're getting married in April, and not going until September...MUCH longer than your wait....but we live in Dallas, and our wedding is in CA, so we figure since we're already going to be out there for a week for the wedding, we could just schedule the honeymoon for later in the year...that way it'll be like having 2 vacations....both romantic!

$$$$$$$$$$$$---> you can never save enough imo


you can pocket the $2K savings and spend it on your honeymoon - or for something else - maybe another trip when y'all get back from deployment??

Its only a week difference!  Save the MONEY!  $2k is a whole lot that can go to a lot of other things, not just airfare!

:) Now I just have to convince him. We decided not to get a videographer to cut back on costs. I can say if we put if off a week we can afford the videographer!

When our wedding was all done, I could not imagine dropping everything and running away for the honeymoon.  I wanted to stay and see family off and relax a bit.  The day after the wedding was like a dream, romantic and relaxed.  We had our wedding on May 31 and are waiting to go to Jamaica until December.  So far, we have been quite happy with the decision.

I say save the money.. You can relax & enjoy being married for a few days, then go off & have the time of your lives.

Save your money! The honeymoon will mean just as much to you if you wait a week. I would get a posh hotel for the night of your wedding though, so you still get that "whisked away" feeling.

I say save your $$ too. FI and I are planning to stay in town for a couple of days before our HM. We want to rest and relax with our OOT guests as well as clean up any loose ends (unpaid vendors, etc.) before we leave. We're also budget conscious so saving $ is on top of our list.

Save the $$. We went to Vegas right after, but that's because we had a great deal, comp. room. :) Otherwise, we were going for Maui about 6 months later.
