      We are staying a week at our DW (Chateau Challain) and with an overnight trip to Paris. After that week, we plan to do 3 days in London and 5 days in Amsterdam, so we're counting the whole thing as our weddingmoon!

        Take a cruise? etc etc....

        I'd love to hear your plans.

        FI and I have not yet decided.
        We were orginally were going to stay longer at our hotel for a honeymoon, but FI said let's go somewhere we have never been before, somewhere different than Mexico.... so we are flying to St Lucia for 5 days at the Anse Chastenet/Jade Mountain after staying a week at the Grand in Riviera Maya.

          We're doing the same! Staying with our family and friends for our weddingmoon and then a great trip in a year's time.

            Since we are already flying down there, and we love Mexico, we decided to stay there for our honeymoon. First week is at the Grand Palladium, Riviera Maya where we are getting married. Then 2nd week we are switching to the Excellence Riviera Cancun (adults only..yay!) for our honeymoon. We considered staying at the same resort for 2 weeks..just maybe upgrade to the Royal section, but thought we would appreciate the change of resorts, and also wanted adults only for our honeymoon. We also didn't want to waste an extra day traveling to another location, and we have already been to Cabo, Cancun, Rosario, Acapulco in Mexico.. so figured we would rather stay in the Riviera Maya, it is so beautiful there. Plus, we travel a lot, so figured we would hit up our other dream spots eventually. Euro trip is on the agenda for next year :)

                We are staying longer than everyone else. Getting there 4/8, Wedding is 4/10, staying til 4/18.
                Most people will be coming for 4 nights. I'm hoping that nobody is planning to stay a week!
                Luckily the resort is a 2 in 1 so there will be plenty of space if any of our guests decide to stay longer!

                  We are staying a few extra days after all people go (hopefully) to take a breather. Then 6 months later we are going to Maui to celebrate with Evan's extended family there since they prob wont make it to mexico. Then we plan on hopping to Kauai for some alone time!

                    We're having a mini-moon. The first part of the trip will be spent at the big all-inclusive with family and friends, then we're switching to a small boutique hotel in Negril (Idle Awhile) for a few days alone to decompress before we head back home.

                      We're staying at the resort we are getting married at for 2 weeks. To get some alone time, we requested our room to be in another area of the resort. Most guests are just staying 5 days - Sat wedding and most are leaving Mon and we'll leave the following Sun.
