Time at wedding vs. honeymoon

Recommended Posts

If you are taking a honeymoon in a separate location (different island/country) from where you're having your wedding, how much time are you spending (or did you spend) down in your wedding destination?

 

And then how much time are you spending/did you spend on your honeymoon and are you going right away?

We were originally just going to switch hotels but stay in the same area but really good friends of ours are getting married in Argentina so we decided to make that our honeymoon. We will be going for one week to Mexico for the wedding and one week to Argentina for the "honeymoon". The only thing is that it will really be a pre-honeymoon since we will go 3 weeks BEFORE our wedding!! :)

We are staying in Jamaica, but changing locations. We are spending a total of 7 nights where we are getting married, and then another 8 nights elsewhere. We get to Jamaica 4 nights before we get married (which is really soon!!!!).

We are going for the wedding in Punta Cana for 10 days. We'll be there a few days before everyone else to get all the final details set. And than we are going to Hawaii but not till the following year. So it will kind of be a honeymoon/anniversary trip.

we got to Mexico on Saturday, and got married the following Friday, so we were there almost a full week before the wedding. then we left for Hawaii the day after the wedding. that was one thing i'd change - i really wish we had a day after the wedding to say goodbye to people and just relax. but i also didn't feel good - so that was part of the reason!

we spent 5 days at our wedding resort and 6 at our honeymoon resort, our honeymoon resort was only about 40 minutes from the wedding resort.

 

Originally we thought about leaving mexico and going somewhere else, but then we would have spent too much time travelling, we wanted to spend as much time doing things as we could, not on a plane, so thats why we decided to just move from cancun to playa del carmen area.

We were in Cabo for a total of 9 days. We spent 4 days after the wedding decompressing there.

 

Next month - ten months later we're going to Thailand for 10 days.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
