Destination weddings can provide a romantic, peaceful and also a perfect opportunity to explore a different place or country to relax and enjoy your honeymoon and each other’s company.

I’m sure you have a listed in your wedding plans an idea of your ideal honeymoon destination…. a great place to look is flicking through wedding magazines, local travel shows on tv.

Wedding destinations with beach locations are enticing with the white sand and the sun. Beach destinations offer perfect water activities for you from swimming to diving, to snorkelling to arriving home with a suntan.

Your final choice for your destination wedding could also depend on which part of the world you live in and how far you really want to travel.  I know a couple who were big fans of Elvis Presley so their choice was of course Hawaii and the Blue Lagoon.  They even go there for their anniversaries.

If you have more family overseas then this can be a popular choice in helping you make a decision.  On the other hand… if you feel a big wedding is just too over the top you can always choose an exotic destination with a small group of family and friends… or elope and have a big party on your return.
