Choosing a destination wedding or honeymoon is the easy part – deciding on where in the World you would like to go can be a bit more complicated.

To help you narrow down your search, below are some things to take into consideration:

Do you have a passport? 
If you don’t and aren’t interested in getting one then you’re a bit more limited in your destination wedding and honeymoon selections. However, keep in mind that places like the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico will give you the quintessential “destination” feel without requiring a passport.

How far are you willing to go for the wedding or honeymoon of your dreams?
Keep a ballpark time frame and distance in mind when deciding on your location. For example, if you’re coming from the west coast and want to keep the flying time under five hours, better opt for Mexico over the Caribbean.

Are you looking for a one-stop-shop? 
A lot of couples are now looking to wrap their destination wedding and honeymoon all into the same location. If this is the case for you, this can have an enormous impact on your chosen destination. For example, if you’re considering your childhood vacation spot for your destination wedding, it might not be the best fit for your honeymoon i.e. you may want to rethink this decision if you don’t want to hop on a plane post-nuptials for your honeymoon.

Do you want something old or something new? 
This is a really basic question you can ask yourself which will quickly clarify your search for the perfect destination wedding or honeymoon location. Do you want to go somewhere you’ve been before or are you looking to explore somewhere new?

How do you want to spend your time?
Whether you’re planning your destination wedding or honeymoon, you’re going to have an idea of how you would like to spend your time away. Some couples require a beach and nothing more, while others want to spend their time doing lots of adventurous activities or exploring new cities. Discuss this with your fiancé and the perfect destination will become clear.

Happy planning!
