Written by Bre Avery and Caroline Carpenter

When it comes to planning your wedding, its ends up being both an exciting and somewhat exhausting process. You have to pay attention to every detail, both big and small, to ensure your big day goes according to plan.

After planning the wedding comes the fun part – planning your honeymoon! You want your honeymoon to me just as magical as your big day. So, whether you want an adventure, relaxation, or classic romance – you’ll find them here!

Gili Islands, Indonesia 

If your perfect honeymoon includes turquoise waters and perfectly manicure beaches, then these three tiny islands off the coast of Lombok are definitely for you!

Iceland

It may not be a relaxing white sand beach, but the “Land of Fire and Ice” is one of the most romantic places. Choosing Iceland for your honeymoon gives you endless options for what to do – you can “rent a car, and explore the country via the Golden Circle, take a dip in the geothermal hot springs, and even climb a glacier for spectacular views.

Sicily, Italy 

Sicily offers pretty much everything one could hope for on a honeymoon. Between the picturesque landscape, world-class cuisine and unlimited romance – the island is truly perfect for a honeymoon.

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

About 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, you’ll find the out of this world Galapagos Islands! Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, this is one of the world’s premier places to spot wildlife. Imagine sitting and relaxing in one the islands lava pools with the company of a few rare iguanas. There really is no other spot as perfect as this to start your romantic vacation.

Kauai, Hawaii

Kauai is one of the best kept secrets in Hawaii – of course everywhere in Hawaii is beautiful but the Garden Isle is unreal. It’s Hawaii’s oldest island, and is covered in emerald valleys, tropical rainforest, and is home to some of the best hiking ever.

Sifnos, Greece 

Although it’s not Santorini or Mykonos, Sifnos has the same charm without all the crowds. Seriously, you get the same views of the sparkly blue water and the infamous white-washed houses but it’s much quieter…not to mention more romantic.

Sedona, Arizona 

Sedona is the perfect mix of adventure and relaxation. Staying at the ultra romantic L’Auberge de Sedona allows you to access their luxurious spa – and you and your spouse can become one with nature in a forest bathing session.

Or, if you’re in the mood for adventure you can take an off-roading Jeep tour or hike in the West Fork Trail.

Sonoma, CA

Not interested in the overly crowded vineyards in Napa? Well, lucky for you Somona is has the same vistas in the countryside and amazing California wine but has way more of a relaxed vibe.

You can opt for a romantic boutique lodge, or a quaint bed-and-breakfast.
