Yes, it’s customary to go on a honeymoon right after the big celebration and sure, the idea of jetting off as soon as your wedding is over is great, but once again, we will breaking from tradition and postponing our honeymoon.
Our dream trip would be travelling to Europe and visiting a couple of different countries. My fiancé has always wanted to visit Germany where he has some family. I have been very lucky in my life and have visited many different countries and would like to grow that number by visiting different countries this time around. I’d also like to see some castles. That’s a trip that would cost a bit of money and this year may not be the right one to take on such a project.
- We purchased a home earlier this year, which is very expensive and moving day is very near by. Our apartment is filled with packed boxes and still a lot to do and organised prior to moving day.
- Weddings are extremely expensive and our budget is already stretched to maximum capacity.
- We have three kids.
The upside to honeymooning immediately is that you get to continue that feeling of newlywed bliss a little longer than your wedding night. With that in mind, we will be taking a mini-moon. Even if it’s only two or three nights, we will be taking some time to really let your marriage sink in and relax with your new spouse will make it feel all the more real before we go back to everyday reality. We decided to go to Niagara Falls, Canada. We splurged on a honeymoon suite and enjoyed being cheesy romantics for a few days.
Did you have your honeymoon right after the big day or did you wait? If you could do it all over again, would you make the same decisions?
