The honeymoon is likely the most looked forward to event of your wedding process. As you progress in your planning and find yourselves practically unable to wait for that extravagant, romantic break, try to discourage yourselves from galavanting off to the first place that catches your eye! As tempting as that may be, you’ve diligently planned your wedding day and the getaway should be no different.
Going away is a given… but where should you go? You’ll first want to analyze your priorities with your honey-to-be before finding the perfect destination. Do you want romance, adventure, relaxation, or a little bit of everything? Deciding what you desire most from this trip will help slim the destination options down drastically.
If relaxation is key, then Bora Bora, French Polynesia, is the answer. With overwater bungalows and endless shady, or sunny, relaxation, you’ll never want to leave. Bora Bora is home to a host of resorts to help you get exactly what you’re looking for from paradise. Most even offer adventurous activities, like underwater snorkeling, if you get tired of lying in the sun… as if!
Eiffel Tower at Sunrise
A romantic honeymoon adventure awaits in Paris, France. You won’t have to imagine any longer watching the sunset at the Eiffel Tower, most likely in the sweetest embrace standing on the city streets during a stroll, or sitting in a cafe sharing decadent pastries. You could stroll along the Seine, hands swinging together, while on your way to the next place to see. Or, if you’re looking for a more exhilarating, hand clutching adventure, you could explore the catacombs filled with bones beneath the streets. There’s nothing quite like putting your love through its first test of dark, intriguing things!
History and art are a huge draw for honeymoon destinations and Füssen, Germany, has plenty for you to dive into. Home to gothic castles, baroque cathedrals, renaissance art and so much more, the town will have you dreaming of magical things and possibilities the whole trip and beyond.
Grand Canal at Night
With a little bit of everything, Venice, Italy, will steal your hearts (even after you’ve just professed them to each other). With its streets that hold adventure around every corner, breathtaking cathedrals filled with renaissance art, sunny sea beaches and romantic gondola rides through the night lit canals, it’s really no wonder that Venice captures the wonder of so many travelers. If you can imagine yourself waking up to a sunny morning to eat fresh crepes and prosciutto with eggs, then Venice is the perfect destination.
With so many amazing options, you may even want to pick a few nearby places, or catch a flight to neighboring countries. You’ll want to be sure you have an adequate amount of time in each place to ensure you don’t feel rushed. The most important thing to remember is that your honeymoon is really the first chance to spend uninterrupted time with the person you are dedicating your life to. Revel in every moment because the two of you have earned it!
