Did you manage to get any alone time after your destination wedding?

My Fiance and I were concerned about this as well.  What we decided to do was to switch over to another hotel for our "honeymoon." We will be staying at our wedding hotel for 5 nights, and then we'll switch to the other hotel for our honeymoon for another 5 nights. Hope this helps!

I understand the desire to spend a day as a newly wed couple with just your husband right after your wedding. After much discussion with my FI, for ourselves, we are planning to have a separate trip for our honeymoon. We value that people have taken the time and expense to travel to celebrate our wedding with us, and also we are able to have a family vacation together. So, we plan to spend the whole week with those who have come, and then take the time for ourselves at a later date

We are staying 11 nights and it was stated on our invitations our travel dates and honeymoon plans. We plan on spending the first portion and 2 days after the wedding with our guest and then having our honeymoon time the last 5 days. All of my guest have seemed ok with it they were all planning to come before and only stay 4 to 5 nights.

I know my mom has talked about giving us some alone time the day after the wedding, and I'm sure she'll make it known among everyone that we'd just want one day to ourselves. I think everyone that's going is going to be more than okay with it, and we'll only have 20 or so people there so we'll have more than enough time with them the rest of the week

We are staying from the 11-18th. But on the Save the Dates and on our wedding website we put the 13-16th. I know most of our guests can't afford to take a whole week off which is great for us. And if they can we don't really want them to know exactly how long we will be there and which days. So to allow us time together we just listed the group travel dates. We have been telling everyone if they want they can come early but the date everyone is leaving it the day after the wedding.   elefant.gif

Our plan is to stay a few days after everyone leaves...the wedding is Saturday and most guests are leaving on Monday or Tuesday, so we're staying until Friday.  This way we still get to hang out with everyone and have a few days to ourselves!

Completely agreed with MoniqueJ. we can't afford to come "back later" any time soon. And we still want to enjoy our honeymoon together alone. But really what matters is what you do decide to do. Because at the emad of the day the wedding is about yall.

I don't think it's selfish at all to spend some time together, and most reasonable guests understand that. We're staying at a villa for the 5 days coming up to the wedding, then another week in a completely different villa, probably about 20 minutes away. That's our honeymoon. 

 

This is personal choice, but at the end of the day, your guests aren't going to your wedding JUST to be with you, they want to enjoy the sun, the food, the activities as well. And I'd like to start my married life well, with my husband. I'll try to spend lots of enjoyable meaningful time with my guests BEFORE the wedding, and then they'll expect us to be gone. :)
