The Best Luxury Honeymoons For Destination Weddings

 

The best way to kick off a dream honeymoon might be to hold the wedding itself in a beautiful farflung locale. For couples who love to explore the globe, this is a great chance combine two or more of your top bucket list travel destinations at once. Bringing along your wedding guests for the first part of your amazing getaway could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to celebrate your wedding with a bang and also have the best luxury travel experiences with all of the people you love most.  

If you’re planning a Caribbean destination wedding on a balmy tropical island, consider switching gears and heading north into the Arctic for your honeymoon, giving you the chance to experience two different types of climate in one trip. In Iceland, explore the nightlife of Reykjavik, soak in thermal pools in the wilderness, and prepare to be amazed as the northern lights dance across the sky. Another one of the best destinations to witness the magic of the aurora borealis is in the northern reaches of Canada where you can also see incredible wildlife like polar bears, including mothers and babies emerging from their dens in springtime, as well as narwhal, whales, elk, arctic fox, walrus, seals, and more.

If you’re holding a wedding in Europe you’ll already be geographically closer to southern or eastern Africa for a Big Five luxury safari. Jet off to Tanzania’s stunning and ancient Ngorongoro Crater, South Africa’s famous Kruger Park, Kenya’s culturally rich Maasai Mara, or Botswana’s wildlife-dense Okavango Delta to get up close to Africa’s most iconic wildlife including elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, wild dog, pangolin, among others.

If you want the ultimate barefoot luxury experience for both wedding and honeymoon there are plenty of ways to combine some of the most beautiful beach destinations in the world with deserted beaches, secluded resorts, and aquatic adventures like scuba diving or snorkeling with exotic marine animals. Where should you go and what is there to do in an Indian Ocean paradise? Go for a romantic sunset cruise on a traditional wooden dhow in Zanzibar, take in the mountain top views and stick your toes in the powdery white sand of the Seychelles, or relax in one of those postcard-perfect overwater villas in the Maldives. All of these island destinations have some of the best luxury resorts on the planet.

Choosing the right destination for your honeymoon is important, and so is ensuring the day goes smoothly by using one of best wedding planning experts in the business. Websites like The Knot or Martha Stewart Weddings can help you streamline your wedding planning process, and the right beautiful bridal salon like Bridal Reflections can help you find the perfect dress. Top notch event designer Guerdy Abraira of Ocean Flowers and Events will make sure all the magic comes together on your big day, and Spinners is an awesome wedding entertainment company that will put together your band, DJ, or whatever else you need to make sure everyone has the time of their lives! In fact, they’re known as “Facilitators of Ingenuity.”

Start planning your Epic Road honeymoon, whether it’s a luxury safari, an Indian Ocean beach escape, or an Arctic adventure.
