Ok, so time to start planning the most fun part of getting married: The Honeymoon.

Just about everyone wants to get some place tropical complete with blue waters, whites sands and enough poolside fruity drinks to give you the . So, to go domestic and still get your beach honeymoon on, you’ll be stuck with:

  • Daytona Beach, Florida
  • Atlantic City (area), New Jersey
  • Destin, Florida
  • New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Panama City Beach, Florida
  • Key West, Florida

So basically “Insert Girls Gone Wild Filming Location Here” honeymoon destinations.

Don’t get me wrong, the U.S. has its fair share of nice resorts that would be honeymoon-worthy (complete list here), but, if you’re skimping on even the Caribbean or Hawaii, then you likely won’t be interested in shelling out $690+/night at the  in Little Torch Key, Florida.

Keeping with the theme, if you’re on a small budget, you could also consider a cruise. I mean, we’ve all heard such great things about Carnival recently and, as an added bonus, you’ll have fun . But, if you take a classier one, you might have a decent time without spending too much per person. Personally, I shudder at the thought.

So, with the domestic US and cruises totally ruled out, it’s time to list all of the viable choices and start narrowing from there. Top honeymoon destinations include:

  • French Polynesia –> Bora Bora, Moorea, Tahiti


  • Maldives


  • Hawaii –> Kauai, Maui


  • Fiji
