The place is the complete package, and as a couple, you will be more than delighted. You can either spend some quality time at the huts suspended over the Indian Ocean, or you can turn on the mood for exploration by diving deep and checking out some coral reefs. The peace and serenity that comes from this place is something that you cannot find in other parts of the world.

Paris

Couples who have travelled to Paris have already termed the place to be the mark of love.

Apart from that memorable evening, there are various other activities that you can do as a couple in Paris. So, if such features seem to be pushing you into the right mood, then Paris will be the perfect choice.

Greece

Apart from that, there are also some unexplored islands that offer the perfect climate for couples to think about the future. Once you are done with all that, the Mediterranean cuisine is another option that acts as the ideal end to a glorious day. The availability of a yacht is a unique choice that promises to make all the difference. So, if you are looking for the perfect honeymoon destination, then look no further than these four places.

The Best Beaches for the Ideal Honeymoon

There is no better feeling than sitting next to a beach and enjoying the waves of the ocean with your loved one. This translates into the ideal honeymoon which we all want, as it enhances the journey to a large extent. Nothing could go wrong at the beach, as the couple sit together and embrace the feeling of love. But there are certain elements that add up to this feeling, and that cannot be found at all beaches in the world. There are specific ones that you should visit since they are perfect for the occasion. So, to give you the right idea, here are some of the best beaches that make the perfect honeymoon.

Anse Source D’ Argent, La Digue, Seychelles

Anse Source D’ Argent is one beach that has entered numerous lists in terms of beauty and top destinations. The beach has some clear white sand that makes you fall for the appearance at the very first glance. Granite boulders, colourful fishes and corals are few other aspects that are unique to this particular place alone. Watching sea turtles swimming and making it across is one of the main activities that people like to do at this beach.

Planning Destination Weddings

Destination weddings are growing in popularity and it’s no wonder why. Many resorts offer amazing deals for onsite weddings, some even will do a basic set-up for free. For couples looking for luxury and elegance, the possibilities are endless. If you want to elope, options are much more dreamy than the drive-through weddings of the past. You can fly to a tropical island, pronounce your vows and then spend your honeymoon in paradise. Eloping to an exotic location is a popular trend in weddings. Beach weddings can have tons of guests or just the two of you. Whichever destination you choose, your wedding will be a lasting memory.

Is a Destination Wedding for you? Here are some things to consider if thinking about marrying away from home:
Small or large wedding? Most destination weddings tend to be smaller then the grand scale weddings people have at home. It may be hard for some of your friends and family to fly to your wedding, so the guest list may be smaller then you wanted. If you don’t want a lot of people at your wedding, this is a great option to easily cut guests without insulting them.

Less money spent. Resorts offer great deals on weddings, so you can have exotic weddings without a large bill. You many not have as many options when it comes to the details of the wedding, but can usually add some special additions that are important to you.

Legal matters. Having a foreign wedding can sometimes be a little sticky when it comes to getting it done legally and easily. You may have to arrive earlier then you prefer for some destinations to make it legal.

Ready for the Honeymoon. No long plane trips after the wedding is finished. Stay at your location for your dream honeymoon. You can switch hotels after the wedding if you want, without going a long distance from your wedding resort.

Honeymoons in Florida: the Best of the Sunshine State

Florida has so much to offer, from the perpetual sunshine to the beautiful Caribbean-style keys and, of course, Miami’s hot nightlife…

Miami where the heat is on….
According to J-Lo it’s the ‘steamiest, sexiest city in America’. Celebrities and mere mortals have been flocking to the tropical city where multi-cultural meets hip, bling and a heavy dose of sexy!

Brilliant beaches as far as the eye can see, a buzzing nightlife and excellent shopping: what more could you ask for? And, in South Beach there’s the beautiful Art Deco buildings on Collins Avenue and the famous palm fringed Ocean Drive. Stay at the swish Sagamore hotel, a boutique vision in white, and firm favourite with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Kirsten Dunst.

To blow the budget, head downtown to the Mandarin Oriental where Tom and Katie Cruise got all romantic! With fantastic views over Key Biscayne, the highlight of the hotel has to be the amazingly tasty Azul restaurant where you can sample the best local rock crab and surf-and-turf in town. For a more ‘risqué’ romantic meal book a table at Tantra, a decadent eatery with a seriously aphrodisiac menu.

The Everglades
Take a tour of the amazing Everglades, the national park spanning the southern tip of the peninsula home to wood stork, great blue heron and egrets; it’s the only place in the world where alligators and crocodiles coexist. The subtropical has been designated a ‘World Heritage Site’ and the best way to see it is to join one of the many airboat tours in the swamps; noisy but quite thrilling when you pick up speed!

The Keys: Key Largo to Key West
Take a scenic road trip across the keys, connected by the Overseas Highway, a masterpiece of construction with 43 bridges including one that is 7 miles long! Stop off in Key Largo of Lauren Bacall and Bogart fame, where the marine sanctuary and ‘coral reef state park’ are home to 500 fish species. Go snorkelling or scuba diving, or even taking a glass bottom boat tour. Spend the night in Key West’s best kept secret, Azul del Mar, a five room hotel with and an extremely friendly welcome.

The next stop is Islamorada, the ‘Sport fishing capital of the world’. Quiet and unpretentious, Islamorada’s most stylish and romantic hideout is Casa Morada (www.casamorada.com). Reminiscent of a stylish 50’s motel with a cool Caribbean vibe in the air: it’s all white linens, sleek lines, swaying palms, a little reggae and brilliant sunshine.
In Key West, America’s southernmost city which is closer to Cuba than to Miami, there’s plenty to do. Wander around the pastel coloured ‘gingerbread’ houses or join in the sunset drinks at Mallory square. As a cruise ship port, Key West has a real party town atmosphere with endlessly buzzing restaurants, bars and shops.

Private island treat: Little Palm
If you like ultra exclusive, make sure you experience Little Palm Island Resort & Spa (www.littlepalmisland.com). The perfect honeymoon resort, it’s accessible only by boat or seaplane! Palm fringed beaches, turquoise waters, attentive staff and gourmet cuisine await. Lie by the pool, on the beach or in a hammock, or borrow a motor boat to visit the surrounding uninhabited islands. Finish the day by taking your welcome champagne hamper to the dock for the show: impossibly electric pink sunsets. It’s all about romance: candlelit dinners served on the beach, oversized four poster beds swathed in mosquito netting, and keep an eye out for the adorable key deer that roam free!

Orlando: Disney’s world…
This is the place for golf lovers… and of course for Disney fans! With 47 square miles of theme parks, 27 hotels and 55,000 attentive and cheerful members of staff doing their best to help you have a ‘magical day’, there’s bound to be something to tickle your fancy at Disneyworld whether it’s the rides like ‘Space Mountain’ or ‘Alien Encounter’ or the amazing Animal Kingdom. Each has its own hotels, spas and restaurants too: everything from Japanese to Wolfgang Puck.

Honeymoons On-The-Go: Backpacking

Just as everyone’s idea of the perfect wedding is different, the idea of the perfect honeymoon is varied. The honeymoon is all about romance, and there is an infinite amount of ways to strike that chord. All-inclusive, packaged honeymoons on remote islands sound picture-perfect to some, but they aren’t for all couples. Some couples need a bit of adventure; some want to plan every detail and have truly unique honeymoons. Backpacking honeymoons fulfill these whims and much more.

What is backpacking? True backpacking combines hiking and camping in a single trip. Here, it will refer to the art of travel-on-the-go. The term “backpacking” used to conjure unromantic images of a vagabond lifestyle not for the faint of heart – sub-par hotels and hostels, terrible food, unpredictable transportation. Not anymore. With so many guidebooks and websites focusing on backpacking, it can be easy for one to plan a trip, no matter how unseasoned the traveler. Backpacking may not be the simplest to plan, but it might be the most fun, depending on your point-of-view.

Like every honeymooning option out there, backpacking has its pros and cons that you and your mate should discuss.

The Pros:
Backpacking can be the most intimate way to get to know a country and the people who live there.
Backpacking allows freedom in how you travel and the amount you spend, perfect for couples looking to save money.
Backpacking directly sustains local economies. When making purchases directly from vendors, you can be assured that all your tourism dollars go toward the local economy.
Planning can be easy, thanks to the internet. Some websites specialize in backpacking in certain locales, and many hotels, hostels, restaurants, and transportation options can be researched and booked online.
No two backpacking trips are alike, ever. If you crave a honeymoon experience out-of-the-ordinary, backpacking might be the route for you.

The Cons:
For the best experience, backpacking requires some research beforehand. Knowing about the history, the people, and the current events of where you are going will save a lot of anxiety while on the honeymoon, allowing you and your partner to enjoy the trip. Many couples do not have time to do this before the wedding.
Backpacking often involves intensive planning. You are responsible for all of the details that are so important to traveling: planning itineraries, arranging transportation, finding places to stay, and developing a back-up plan should anything go awry.
Backpacking can be expensive, should you find yourself in a hitch.
Backpacking tends to be a communal culture – which a young married couple may not be searching for on their honeymoon.
Backpacking can be exhausting and stressful, especially after a wedding. Going from place to place hauling your luggage may not be the most relaxing of vacations.
Should anything go wrong, refunds are harder to obtain.
The list for both sides goes on and on, but these are just some points you and your partner should discuss before booking the trip.

If backpacking seems like a great fit, a decision needs to be made: Where do you want to go? The world is at your fingertips, and the possibilities are endless. When choosing a locale, think of what attracts you to that place, and why. One of the perks of backpacking is the feasibility of seeing many places in one whirlwind trip. Are there a number of cities or countries close together that you’ve always wanted to visit? Think about your favorite foods, what monuments you’d like to see, and what your honeymoon budget allows. Consider the language barriers. Tour packages usually provide a native speaker with your group, but when you are backpacking, you may be reliant on a phrasebook to get you through the trip.

After you’ve decided where to go, consult with friends and family. Backpacking is a rite of passage for some, so get advice, opinions, and recommendations from those who’ve spent time abroad. Also, consider when to travel. If you choose a locale that attracts a wide range of tourists during its peak season, you can expect longer lines and higher prices. Best to travel just before or after the peak season, when the crowds are fewer. Check weather sites to see what temperatures to expect while abroad.

Packing is an important element of your trip . after all, it’s in the name! While it is not necessary to sport an actual backpack on your trip, they are easier to carry around than cumbersome suitcases. The key in packing is versatility. You have a very limited amount of room in your bag, and chances are you will be carrying everything with you almost all the time. Stick to thin pieces that can be layered up for warmth. Ditch the stilettos and pack the sneakers. Save room for a few key items: a casual sundress for an evening out, slacks or a long skirt for trips to churches or sites that may not allow shorts.

At first glance, backpacking may not be the most glamorous of honeymoons, but romance can and will flourish if you and your mate are open to the possibilities. Embrace the adventure that comes with creating your own special honeymoon, and you’ll ignite a spark that will burn for ages.

Honeymoon Packing List

Packing can be a tedious process but needs careful consideration. Here are some packing tips to help make the process easy and efficient. Before you begin to pack, have an idea of what you will be doing while on vacation. Will you be hiking, therefore needing hiking shoes, a backpack and a large water bottle? Lying on the beach? Playing golf? Many different sports have their own equipment that you may need to bring with you, unless your hotel offers the ideas for free or a small charge.

Next, find the appropriate size suitcase for your length of stay and make sure it is sturdy and in good condition. Consider outfit choices that could mix-and-match. You may only need one jacket or sweater the whole stay, so pick one that will go with all of your outfits (i.e. black or white). Stick with versatile bottoms and you can splurge on those many colored tank tops that don’t require a lot of space.

Compile all clothes and supplies before beginning to cram them into the bag. Put the larger and heavier items in first. Make sure all liquid items are zip-locked, preferably double layered. Try rolling clothes to make more room. Finish with the smaller items that can fill in the holes. Don’t forget to leave room for souvenirs!! Leave expensive or precious valuables at home.
