By Kara Reynolds | Feb 16, 2022

Congratulations, you’re getting married! You’ve planned the difficult details–wedding venue, DJ, reception site and caterer. Now you can move on to the next stage, figuring out where you and your partner will go for your honeymoon.

But where should you travel? Are you looking to journey internationally or stay domestic? Maybe you’d like to book a cruise or try out a resort. Whatever you choose, you’ll want to make sure your trip is just right for you. Here are seven ideas for your honeymoon.

1.  Travel Internationally

Maybe an ideal honeymoon entails you and your partner hopping on a plane and seeing the world. If so, consider a trip to the gorgeous Caribbean island of St. Lucia. However, if you’re coming from the West coast, you might want to try Bora Bora, a beautiful island part of French Polynesia.

If history is important to you or your partner, consider traveling to Santorini, Greece, home to beautiful beaches and ancient ruins. You can also sample delicious wine and take a boat cruise around the harbor. Another popular pick for history buffs is Florence, Italy, renowned for Renaissance art. 

2.  Stay Domestic

If you’d rather not deal with the hassle of getting passports or securing international tickets, there are countless things you can do in the US. From soaking up the sun on a beach to exploring a new city to backpacking through our national parks, there are hundreds of honeymoon opportunities for you and your partner.

First, determine what sort of trip you’d like to have. Next, select a location that best fits your interests. You and your partner can take turns choosing different activities for your honeymoon.

3.  Book a Cruise

A fun and stress-free way to travel for your honeymoon is to book a cruise. Once you embark on your cruise, all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your journey. Your food, lodging and entertainment are provided.

Cruising can be a great way to see different parts of the world. Consider booking a cruise to Bali, Australia and even Antarctica. There are also river cruises you can take to explore Europe and Asia.

4.  Try a Resort

Resorts prove to be a great honeymoon option for couples because they are often all-inclusive in gorgeous Caribean locations. If you’re looking for a relaxing start to your marriage, consider a resort honeymoon where you can rest on a beach and lounge by a pool.

Resorts are great for couples who have an adventurous spirit, as many have access to options in water sports or snorkeling and scuba diving. Many resorts offer honeymoon packages that provide private dining options or personal cabana rentals.

5.  Relax and Unwind

While on your honeymoon, whatever your destination, ensure you take time to relax with your partner. You just spent the past months planning a wedding. You deserve a little downtime!

To make your time together relaxing, try not to overbook your honeymoon. You can also purposefully schedule activities that help you decompress. Consider ordering room service at your hotel and eating in one evening. Book a couples massage or kick back in a jacuzzi. Whatever you end up doing, take one day to prioritize stress-free activities.

6.  Make it Romantic

When it comes to your honeymoon, of course, you want it to be romantic. Choosing the right destination will add to the excitement of your time together–but know there are little things you can do each day to up the romance during your honeymoon.

A great way to start your marriage as a couple is to wake up early and watch your first sunrise. Sunrises are gorgeous and surprisingly romantic–there’s no doubt you’ll remember this experience for the rest of your marriage. Another way to up the feelings of love is to write your partner little notes or exchange thoughtful gifts. Surprise them with the present to add an extra romantic touch.

7.  Experience Nature

Getting out into nature is a great way to bond with your partner. Consider hiking through the woods, walking a beach or snorkeling in the ocean. The good news is that wherever you decide to honeymoon, nature isn’t far away. If you and your partner like to stay active, make it a point to add a nature trip to your honeymoon. Experiencing the great outdoors together can be the perfect way to bond and get your marriage off to a solid start.

The Best Honeymoon

Talk with your partner to discover what they’re looking for in the honeymoon. You’ll want to make sure that both of you are comfortable with your location and the activities you have planned. Wherever you end up booking your trip, ensure you and your partner spend quality time together–your honeymoon is bound to be a success!
