This morning I wrote a post on the possibility of registering for the Walt Disney World Marathon in January.
The marathon is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary this year and has a whole bunch of special surprises lined up for the runners in its honor. BUT there’s a small problem – it’s a week after my wedding.
Am I crazy for considering it? Possibly, but runners are crazy, right?
Anyways, that’s not the point of this post. The point of this post isn’t the fact that I’m considering the marathon the week after my wedding, it’s the comments I received on that post asking “What about the honeymoon?” I thought that was an excellent question that would be worth discussing on the wedding page.
As of right now, Derek and I have no plans to immediately leave for our honeymoon following our wedding. The plan is to take a week (or two) and take a bit of a breather after the wedding – you know… return to work, settle into married life, let the wedding stuff sink in, etc. etc. – then take off for our honeymoon. We’ve had several friends and family members recommend this approach to us and we both like it.
We originally wanted to leave the weekend after our honeymoon (the same weekend as the Disney marathon), but it’s also Martin Luther King weekend (aka a holiday weekend) which makes traveling just a little more $$. To save some money on tickets and resort fees, we’re considering flying out that Tuesday and doing a mid-week to mid-week honeymoon or just holding off until the following weekend. We’re still working the details out.
So that’s our plan – hold off a week or to after the wedding, then enjoy our honeymoon once the wedding dust has settled. It might not exactly be the traditional approach, but it’s the approach we both agree on.
Did you leave for your honeymoon immediately after your wedding or did you wait a while?
