A Honeymoon Around Here?

Posted on December 21st, 2007 by Courtney in Anything Goes, Wedding Planning, Wedding Traditions, Wedding Trends 4 Comments

After all the hard work you put into planning your wedding, you definitely deserve a relaxing honeymoon. As a modern bride, though, you might (just might) end up having to plan that too.

I know you’re excited now. You’re honeymoon is supposed to give you a break from the everyday; it’s supposed to be a time for you and your new hubby to enjoy your first few days (maybe even the first few weeks) of your marriage.

As nice as it would be to go gallivanting all over the world, sometimes that’s not the best option. Do you have a passport? Do you have enough time to attain a passport before your wedding? Do you have an extensive budget to accommodate a Caribbean getaway? Do you have family or work that can be accommodated from afar?

Clearly there are a lot of things to consider before you even decide on the location of your honeymoon! In any case, for one reason or another, it might suit you and your hubby-to-be a little bit better if you choose to remain stateside rather than jetting off to some remote location.

You might be a little disappointed to find you can’t or shouldn’t cross an ocean for your honeymoon, but you really have a lot of options if you choose to stay here in the U.S. Think about it, the United States is home to beaches, mountains, national parks, historical cities, and even islands. Really, it’s a world of endless possibilities if you just use your imagination!

    What about Alaska! :) That is an amazing place to visit, that is where we went for our honeymoon, and it was absolutely beautiful! But Vegas…eh….not too romantic, too busy for me.

    Oh wow! I didn’t even notice Alaska wasn’t on there! My husband and I really want to go on an Alaskan Cruise when we can. It seems like it would be fantastic, but I’ve heard you have to plan your travel dates carefully. I don’t know when the idea dates are, so I guess that’s something to look into before planning the trip.

    I agree: Vegas is fun, but there’s too much going on to really relax I think.

    put new hampshire on that list! There are so many beautiful classy romantic B&B’s nestled in the White Mountains. A great combo of nature and romance

    Georgia is a beautiful place to visit. There are so many wonderful country views and ocean views that it is amazing. Savannah is a great place, and also Blue Ridge.
