Choosing A Honeymoon Destination

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 29th, 2010

So you?ve picked the dress of your dreams, placed the order for the exquisite cake and the stunning flowers and now can?t put your finger on what to choose as your honeymoon destination? Well, fret no more; read these tips and hopefully you?ll be booking tickets to the honeymoon destination of your dreams pretty soon. Don?t let the plethora of information on honeymoon destinations overwhelm you. Approach this the other way around. Instead of looking at bridal magazines and websites about the various honeymoon destinations, talk to your spouse-to-be about where you would like to go and take it from there.

What do the two of you do when you have time together? Water sports? Hiking? Antiquing? Beaches? Casinos? Look back and see where you were the last time you had a great vacation together? Was it a Vegas-like nightlife setting or something more tranquil such as Tahiti?

Once you?ve decided whether you want to hit the beach or the discotheque, then figure out how much of your wedding budget are you going to devote to the honeymoon. Set a dollar amount and skip the bridal registry in favor of a honeymoon registry if you would rather have friends and family contribute to your honeymoon destination instead of more sandwich makers and microwave ovens.

If you want to save some money, try a local place; preferably a drivable distance from where you live. However, if you can splurge, then experience some place new. If you do have the budget to go international, enquire about visas and passport information before hand so that you are not disappointed later on.

If crossing borders is part of your plan, Canada and Mexico are great options but if a longer flight is what you fancy, Europe must top your list. Whether its breathtaking Austria, romantic France or some other European nation, such a honeymoon destination will surely be different from the usual and something you will cherish for a long time.

Figure out whether you want to leave for the honeymoon immediately following the reception or wait a few days? Either way, have your dates firm and book accordingly. The earlier you do so, the better changes you have of scoring a great deal. If you are going for the sun and sand, try some less popular beaches to save some money. The water will be the same; just some of the amenities will be different and if you?re not into parasailing or water sports and just want time alone, a less crowded, less touristy place would be the better choice anyways.
