Traditional or Twist: Honeymoon?

Traditionally the newlyweds used to sail off straight away from the wedding to the honeymoon! ✈️ But that might not be the best time for you to travel! When will you head off for your honeymoon?


Are you sticking with tradition and traveling right away? Or are you twisting the tradition to work for you, and planning your honeymoon for a better time?

    I personally love the idea of taking off 2-3 days after the wedding.

    We are still looking to do it after the wedding. I think it would be nice "IF" we can have our wedding and "IF" there is no travel ban, to get away and just enjoy and relax after all of this mess. We are looking to go to Aruba for 2 weeks, which thankfully has very minimal amounts of the virus, so I am hoping by the time we go there will be none! Smiley ups
    We are supposed to be going in October.

    My fiance and I are doing our honeymoon the year after our wedding for our first anniversary. Since we're getting married in Kelowna BC and we'll be there for 3 weeks, we've decided to wait until the following year. We're going to Anaheim California. Going to Disneyland, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Universal Studios, Knots Berry Farm, Sea World & San Diego Zoo

    We got married last May. We did a mini-moon for a few nights right after the wedding and waited until August to do our big honeymoon due to work. It also gave me more time to plan the honeymoon - I didn't get a lot of time to while wedding planning. It all worked out really well!

    My FH really wants to leave right away, the day after the wedding. I think maybe a day or two to allow us to catch our breath would be best.

    We're going to St Lucia as well! We're getting married the Friday of Thanksgiving weekend. We were originally booked to fly out on the Tuesday morning, but Air Canada cancelled that flight and put us on a flight the Sunday morning instead Smiley atonished

    Not ideal for our post-wedding family plans, but c'est la vie! We still get to go on our dream honeymoon and looking forward to it so much!

    More a twist than traditional.
    We had ideas of things we wanted to do for a honeymoon (like a big comic/fan convention), but we can't set the dates for those! LOL.

    The battle plan now is: We're doing a day after little get together with the bridal party and immediate family still in town then leaving for a "mini-moon" for a few days in a relatively close spot then doing a big honeymoon the following year.

    We did ours completely different and we decided to have two honeymoons. Our wedding is in August, so we decided to go to Puerto Vallarta in January for a week for our first honeymoon. The second honeymoon is about two weeks after our wedding and we are going to Vegas. We decided not to leave right after the wedding because both of our kids will be getting ready to head back to school at the end of the month, so this gives us time to take care of that before we leave.

    We put that on hold until may the 5th year when we can afford a trip once all the big payments are out of the way.

    Bit of both; we first did a mini-moon which was right after the wedding weekend, but then a couple months later went on an actual honey moon.

    We did a mini moon the weekend after our wedding. We waited a month to go on our honeymoon when the weather was cooler here!

    Eventually we may go on a honeymoon, right now that is way down the list of more important things to do!

    We haven't taken a honeymoon, and we might not for a long time. We just bought a house, so a proper far-off destination is not in the budget. We would like to at least have a weekend getaway some time this year hopefully. Maybe just to Ottawa or Niagara-on-the-Lake.

    We took off for the honeymoon the day after our wedding. It was cold so it was the perfect time to set off to the warmth

    We haven't set our honeymoon yet. I think we'll be leaving as soon as we can but it will be more of a family vacation than a honeymoon. Possibly with my sister and her family coming with us.

    There'll be a 4 day break between the wedding and our honeymoon. It's just what worked out best for us logistically
