Your engagement ring is still sparkling madly, the venue and reception are all booked, so now it’s time to think about the best bit of all… your honeymoon!
Our Manor By The Lake wedding planners have rounded up the current hot trends for honeymoons so you can lust over sun-kissed beaches and dream of your first few days of wedded bliss.
Honeymoon For Food Lovers
If you and your loved one are passionate foodies, then why not combine your love of food with your love for one another on your honeymoon? The world is quite literally your oyster where food is concerned but for us, we’d head to Asia where the climate is tropical, and the cuisine, equally hot! Thailand has a fabulous reputation for unspoiled beaches and luxury hotels, with many including the famous Mandarin Oriental, now offering cookery courses to their guests.
If Mediterranean food is more your style, then why not learn to make pasta in Tuscany, tapas in Barcelona or tagine in Marrakech. You certainly won’t go hungry on a foodie honeymoon!
Honeymoon For Adventure Lovers
For adrenaline and exertion, we love the idea of a ranch honeymoon in Montana where you can learn cattle driving and trail riding. Or perhaps you’d prefer to go hiking through the rainforests of Belize, or white water rafting in Brazil?
For winter sports lovers, you can comfortably combine a luxurious honeymoon with high-octane mountain thrills and spills in Europe, or head to the glamorous North American resorts of Whistler, Aspen or Lake Tahoe.
Honeymoon For Road Lovers
Hire yourself a drop dead gorgeous soft top and hit the road for the honeymoon of a lifetime. Choose between well-loved routes in the USA such as Route 66 from Chicago to LA, or delight in the deep south from New Orleans to Savannah. Wine lovers will appreciate the San Francisco to Napa Valley route, or head over to the east coast and go from Boston to Cape Cod and experience the awe-inspiring coastline and outstanding seafood.
South Africa is another wonderful location for a fly drive honeymoon, with the garden route, winelands and safari options all easily discoverable by car. Or for something really different, why not head to Iceland to discover the beauty of the fjords and the Northern Lights?
Honeymoon For Eco-Lovers
Join the growing number of honeymooners who want to explore the world, whilst making a minimal impact on the environment. Popular destinations for eco-exploration include Costa Rica, Australia and Borneo where you can be at one with nature, staying in solar powered resorts, eating locally sourced food and all without losing any sense of luxury.
