Speaking from experience, a low dose pred taper may be exactly what you need. In most cases, pred will help you feel much better very quickly. If I had a wedding and honeymoon coming up, it's the option I'd go for. If you're started at a moderate dose and immediately taper within a week, side effects should be minimized, if not totally eliminated.
I recently took a trip with my hubby for our first anniversary. I was pretty miserable the whole time we were gone. I had a c-scope and was started on pred (40 mg) the week after we returned from our trip. A day or two after starting the pred, I felt much, much better... like a switch had been flipped. Sure made me wish I'd started it before the trip.
Pred has it's scary side effects and you certainly don't want to be on high doses for long periods of time, but under the circumstances - wedding and honeymoon looming - it's hard to beat pred for how quickly it can get symptoms under control. I urge you to at least talk to your doc about
