Nothing is more iconic than the honeymoon trip. Most people love to kick back and relax on a resort somewhere, happily laying out on a beach and drinking the days away. Others love adventure packed vacations where they don’t sit still for a moment. For those two, it’s a little easier picking the special destination you and your newly minted husband will be heading to after your wedding. But, what about those who aren’t sure where to go, haven’t yet traveled, or are stuck on decisions?

Narrow it Down
Narrow down your search to what you’re interested in. For my fiancé, he just wanted to be warm. After that, it took a little more research to find what suited us. Decide what would make you happy. Is it beaches? Hot weather? Romantic walks in a city? Cold? Adventure? The list is practically endless. Find what gets you excited and go from there.

Throw in Some Veto Cards
Sometimes, your significant other just doesn’t know what the fuck they’re talking about. And, that’s okay. Both of you should have the right to Veto a place because you’re not really into it; make sure you’re not veto-ing everything, though, else you won’t end up going anywhere! If you want Paris, but he’s looking at the French countryside, then realize that that’s an amazing compromise (gorgeous AND more romantic). Plus, you can spend a day or two in the city, flying in and out of Paris.

Don’t Put Too Much Pressure on it
Putting too much pressure on yourself to find the perfect vacation spot for your honeymoon is just going to drive you insane. Yes, it should be special and over-the-top and lovely and everything amazing. Chances are, if you’re the type of people who love to travel, you’re going to travel again as a couple. This isn’t the be-all end-all vacation — it’s the start of many more to come!

Know that Everyone is Different
Everyone has their idea of what a honeymoon should be like. Some wait months to go on that special trip because of timing and weather because that’s what they want to do. Others leave right away to adventure together. Everyone’s looking for that amazing vacation spot that you can enjoy as a married couple.
But, that could just mean a cabin in the woods for some and a 5-star over-water bungalow for others. If you feel…
