  • Discuss where you want to go for your honeymoon. Discuss the type of honeymoon.  Do you want to go to beach? Hiking in the mountains?  A historic place? A cruise? Remember, you will be tired from the wedding so make sure you do not plan a very chaotic schedule!
  • Find out how much time off both of you have from work. If you are traveling internationally, you may want to take more than just one week to explore. Think about time differences. Make sure you have enough time to be able to comfortably adjust back to your time zone.
  • Take a look at all of the beautiful and wonderful places there are. Do research and find an amazing resort that both suits your honeymoon dreams.
