No matter the length of your engagement before your nuptials, the weeks and months before the wedding can be crazy. Even the simplest of weddings require some organizing and planning, and the weeks before the wedding can be extremely stressful. Not only are you experiencing a major life change, you are planning a party for friends and loved during this change. You may have a loving and supportive family, but gathering them for a party can still overwhelm you. The best way to cope is to plan an after-wedding getaway. That is what honeymoons is for. It gives the newly married couple time away at the beginning of their marriage. Anyone would need a vacation after planning a large party, but it is especially true for newlyweds. All of the excitement of marrying may have been swept aside in the wedding planning, so the honeymoon gives you a chance to reconnect and remember why you decided to get married in the first place. It is a chance to be alone together, rehash the wedding and enjoy life as a married couple. Many brides look forward to the honeymoon more than the actual wedding because they know they will be able to relax and enjoy the company of their new spouse. If this sound likes you, do your best to plan a luxurious honeymoon the two of you can share. Consider renting luxury real estate or one of the beachside luxury homes while visiting tropical islands. Nothing relaxes you faster than a beachside stroll.

If the beach is not your thing, choose a country together that you have always wanted to see. This is a special occasion, so consider your chosen destinations before considering your budget. You can factor in budget a bit later once you narrow down your choices.

Have you always had a desire to stroll along Parisian streets in France, picnicking by the Eiffel tower? Would you prefer to see the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace?

No matter what your choices, come to an agreement together. If it seems impossible to narrow down your choices, each of you can put your top three destinations into a hat and agree that whatever is picked is the destination. Be sure to eliminate destinations if either of you is passionate about not going.

Keep in mind that in most cases, regardless of the destination, there will be ways to enjoy yourself and relax. For instance, in most cities, you are going to find a resort that offers spa treatments and shopping.
