I've heard it said that the wedding is for the bride but the honeymoon is for the husband. I don't agree with that. Both the wedding and the honeymoon should be something they both thoroughly enjoy. The groom shouldn't be dragged along for the wedding ceremony and letting his bride get her way in everything and the bride shouldn't be subjected to a honeymoon that only caters to the groom's interests. Like every part of a good marriage, working as a team and agreeing on something that is good for both partners is key.
Having said that, whatever you decide regarding a honeymoon please make sure you do something! Whether it's an exotic two week get-away or simply a weekend in Seattle, it's important to have that time alone after the stress and busyness of the wedding. The wedding is a very special time where you are surrounded by loved ones for most of the day. Most couples have zero alone time during the wedding and reception which is understandable and expected. However, once the lights are shut off and the guests head home it's wonderful for the couple to get out of town, clear their heads, and simply enjoy each others company.
I know some couples plan to take a honeymoon a few weeks or months after their wedding day due to finances or scheduling problems but I would like to suggest that you re-consider that option. Even if all you can afford is a camping trip or a short road trip, it's important to do something. You can take the big trip in a few months but when the wedding day comes to an end it's really special to have somewhere to go where you can focus on your new partner and celebrate the life you are about to start together.
