People can say what they will. It's a pretty safe bet that one of the reasons you are looking forward to your wedding is going on your honeymoon. Honeymoon destinations are as varied as are the weddings that precede them. After all the wedding planning, you and your partner have been doing for months and sometimes even years, a week or two just relaxing and enjoying each other sounds like a dream come true.
Don't make the choice of your honeymoon destination by choosing the first thing that comes to mind. Take some time together to sit down and browse the internet or go to a travel agent and pick up some brochures for destinations that interest you. Once you have all our resources at hand, grab a glass of wine, or beer or whatever suits your taste and begin your journey.
If you do an internet images search for honeymoon destinations, you will find that at least 90% of the images you find will be beach locations. While a beach getaway is the definition of relaxation for many people, there are so many other types of destinations to choose from, you might want to research some other options before you succumb to all those beautiful and relaxing destination images.
Now, if you are an adventure loving couple, there are many different types of honeymoons you can choose. Your choice will depend on what type of adventures you like. Is your dream to climb Mount Fuji in Japan or is your idea of adventure exploring the Egyptian pyramids? There is one very important thing to consider when planning an adventure honeymoon, however. An adventurous honeymoon will no doubt provide you with lots of excitement. However, it may be a bit difficult to add in romance. Sleeping in a tent, sometimes with a good number of tourist in very close proximity, mosquitos or frozen body parts are not necessary great ingredients for love.
Another good choice for a honeymoon destination is to visit one or more theme parks. This is a great choice for numerous reasons. First of all, you can plan your entire wedding around the theme park honeymoon and turn it into a wedding weekend (or week). For instance, you can plan your wedding and honeymoon in Orlando, Florida which has several theme parks all in close proximity to each other. There are even several more theme parks within an hour's drive as well.
If you have children, planning your honeymoon around visiting a theme park or parks is a great way to begin the bonding process. Of course, by including your children the honeymoon you may run into the problem of privacy. If this is something that concerns you, you can always check into renting a multi-room suite or even a rental home in the area. As a general rule, there are usually quite a few houses that can be rented out by the week that come completely furnished with everything you need. All you have to bring is yourself and your clothes. An upside to this type of situation is that you can save money on dining out, particularly if you are including your children.
