Our honeymoon destinations can make or break our wedding experience. You can have a fabulous and sublime wedding with perfect vows and a great guest list, and then end up with a poor honeymoon. This can ruin the wedding experience and leave you feeling pretty pessimistic for the duration of the trip. With that being said, it is important that you do sufficient research to find a place that is perfect for you and your partner.
Keep reading this article for some of the top honeymoon destinations across the globe and some tips to consider when deciding.
If city life is not for you and your partner, you might want to opt for a luxury high-class experience in a location such as the Maldives. It is the perfect place to enjoy a beach holiday as the white sands and crystal-clear blue waters attract couples from across the globe every single year. Travel experts have noted that the Maldives is full of some of the best accommodation services in the world. You can travel to the Maldives on a budget, so it appears to be a top choice for honeymooners.
Choosing activities for couples in the Maldives can be tricky as there are a lot of options. Some of these consist of snorkelling, parasailing, diving, spa treatments and travelling around the different islands. At some resorts you get a chance to spend a day ‘marooned’ on a desert island. A trip to the Maldives is a once in a lifetime experience so it’s worthy of consideration for the time being!
Are you stuck on the idea of a city experience? If so, then we highly recommend checking out Berlin in Germany. It has a wonderfully rich culture and history and a fabulous food and music scene too. Relaxing honeymoons are not for everyone, so it is important to consider what you and your partner would like to do on your trip. One of the best things about heading to Berlin on a honeymoon – or any holiday for that matter – is that there is so much to do and all can be done in a couple of weeks. The fabulous transport system in Berlin is incredible as the services are always on time and cover the entire city.
This would allow you and your partner to cover the whole city for the length of time you are there. You can visit countless museums and historical landmarks, have fine dining experiences and engage in the arts and culture of the city. One of the best times to head to Berlin is the summer as there are always many different festivals and carnivals to experience. This will not only add to your trip, but it will give you a wondrous honeymoon that you will never forget.
New York City, USA
Before we head into discussing some of the things to consider when choosing a trip, our last honeymoon destination recommendation is that of New York City. One of the best things about NYC is that there is so much to do and always something for everyone. It serves as one of the best travel experiences for couples as there are many things to choose when filling up an itinerary.
Some of the top experiences for couples in NYC include heading to Central Park to experience some joy and romance, heading up to the top of the Empire State Building and visiting the Statue of Liberty. Living the perfect honeymoon dream has never been easier than in NYC.
Las Vegas, Nevada
Depending on whether you and your partner love a city break or prefer a calm and relaxing getaway experience, this will largely influence where you choose to go. If you love the idea of a city experience for your honeymoon, then we recommend visiting Las Vegas in Nevada. What was once a desert has been entirely transformed into a luxury and fabulous place to experience extravagance and indulge in life’s sweet things.
Vegas has many different exciting activities to choose from, and it continues to be one of the top honeymoon destinations for couples across the globe. This is because it is filled with fine dining experiences, lavish accommodation and thrilling entertainment. It serves as a fabulous place to relax and engage in all that it has to offer. Finding the best casino offers on the road has never been easier for gambling lovers as Las Vegas is home to the top entertainment in the gaming and gambling industry. This coupled with exciting entertainment complexes and a four-mile-long strip to see, could be the honeymoon destination for you?
Create a budget
When it comes to choosing the perfect holiday destination, we recommend that you create a budget. You can do this by saving your money over a length of time and investing it in a savings account. Most couples do this in the lead up to their honeymoon anyway, but definitely consider this if you haven’t already. From here, you should decide where you want to travel to and work out how much you’ll need each day. Creating an itinerary is a great place to start!
City or beach?
Our final recommendation to consider when choosing a honeymoon destination is that of whether you want a vacation of relaxation or exploration? Usually, we can do either no matter where we travel to. Yet again, if you want to explore, the city is usually your best option as there will be more to do. The same goes for visiting a city – you might not get as much downtime to relax. Either way, make the decision with your partner and work out what is the best option going forward for your honeymoon.
Overall, when choosing a destination for you and your partner’s honeymoon, we recommend making a few considerations. If you want to spend a few weeks relaxing and getting some headspace from a busy working life, then a beach holiday might be your best option. However, if you love having some fun and exploring, a city break might be what you’re looking for!
