We are getting married in July 2019 and would love to go on honeymoon straight after but are mindful that if we wait until September we will save £100's on flights (we are planning a multi centre holiday). What would you do?
How about going somewhere in the uk for a couple of days and then have your proper one once the peak period has ended?
Hi I agree with Samantha B :)
Sounds like a sensible plan - would do this if I could. Sadly being a teacher means we only get to have pricey hols!
We are at a wedding fair today with a travel agent there so maybe we can grab a bargain! Xxx
I completely agree with Samantha B. It will also be something to look forward to when the excitement of the wedding is over.
Leave it. We got married a couple of weeks ago. Our honeymoon is in May - we can save more money, get better deals and also helps with the post wedding blues as we have something more to look forward to!
I would 100% wait. We got married 4 weeks ago and our honeymoon isn't until February. We went away Glamping in the UK for 4 nights a few days after the wedding for a Minimoon so we could enjoy our first week as a married couple before reality set back in again. Waiting also gives you something else to look forward to. I know a few people that went on their big honeymoon straight after the wedding and are now sad it's all over whereas I am really excited about our honeymoon still to come.
Im getting married 2nd Aug 19 and we are planning on waiting til mid sept for this exact reason. We have booked an extra night in the hotel where we are getting married then will be back to reality on the Sunday ready for work and kids on the Monday x
Why don't you go on a little mini break shortly after the wedding and then wait until September for a big honeymoon?
We got married in april, honeymooned in September
We got married at the end of September, at 16 weeks pregnant a honeymoon wasn’t possible with sickness etc so we’re going next Oct/nov time instead on safari. It’s all about what works for you x
We are getting married the exact same time as you and are having the same dilemma. I think we will try to wait until September for ours to reduce the price. X
hold off as it will give u something to look forward to
Personally we never booked a honeymoon we bought our home in the jan spent 3 months doing it up
Got married in the June
So money was spent on the house
With ppl being generous with money for wedding gifts we ended up buying a last min hol a few days after the wedding but our original plan was to.hold off and honeymoon when money was saved up
Having a break between both gives u something extra to look forward to in time
We’re getting married in July 2019 too and plan on having a short break in the UK straight after the wedding, then going away at the end of September/October.
We got married in July and Honeymooned in Sept. I’m so glad we did it that way as it gave us something to look forward to once the wedding hype has died down and it meant we fully appreciated the build up to the honeymoon. We also had more time to see what money we had as wedding gifts and plan how much to take with us etc x
My daughter gets married 29th December this year. They're going away first a few days together, hogmanay. Then honeymoon next year, as a teacher it has to be in the holidays, therefore more expensive. But it's something to look forward to.
We’re going either November or early December Xx
Minimoon in the UK and save the money on flights. Surely you'd want the extra cash to spend on activities on your honeymoon than go straight after your wedding?That money could be put to better use than on flights. I mean,you should wait and have cheaper flights,the money you save on flights would be better spent on holiday than just flying. Have a minimoon so you get some time together and do your bigger honeymoon later
Thanks everyone. I think we will likely have a few days here and go all out later in the year (although we were planning the carribean and September is hurricane season there!) Xxx
We get married July. Plan on going away straight after and then family holiday in September. We thought about a UK mini moon but that wouldn't be cheap as in school holidays so really not saving anything xx
We are getting married in July next year and honeymooning in September as we wanted to go to Orlando and managed to get a much better deal xx
We're getting married in April and not having the honeymoon to a few months later.
