Please reply with your own answer! : )
How did you opt to fit in the honeymoon? Mini honeymoon now and ‘real’ honeymoon later? Or, did you wait to get married in order to more conveniently take the time off for an immediate honeymoon? Was your choice of location limited more by budget or by proximity?
When I got married there hadn’t been a wedding in my family in many years, so there was a fair amount of pressure to do everything the “right” way. I come from a family of very proper women (at least they make sure it appears that way). Everything was a big deal, including my honeymoon. My family travels a lot, so anything on this continent was too ordinary. And 25 years ago only a handful of us had been to the Caribbean. But in order for me to get the cruise that I wanted I needed time to save for it. My engagement was a little over a year long, and I saved every penny. Thank goodness for tax returns. We spent some time with out of town guests after our big day, and then flew to Florida to board the Norway from the Norwegian Cruise Line. Our room was stocked with gifts from our families like champagne and sexy lingerie. To this day, it was the best food I’ve ever had; and the only cruise I’ve been on. It was worth every penny. 4 kids later, I’m lucky to leave the state on a trip. I think a honeymoon needs to be very special; a place you really want to go, even if it’s local.
How are you planning your honeymoon? Mini honeymoon or ‘real’ honeymoon after your wedding? Have you scheduled your wedding date to make it easier to take the time off for an immediate honeymoon? Is your choice of location limited more by budget or by proximity?
