Picking your honeymoon destination means organizing one of the most exciting and memorable trips you’ll ever take. Before you decide where you want to spend your first holiday after getting hitched, you have to consider several important aspects of this trip to make the best possible decision. If you’re feeling brave, you could pick Romania for some world-class vampire stories or if you’d rather lounge around on a beach, Greece or Spain would definitely be a better choice.

Let’s consider the top 3 most important questions you need to ask yourself before deciding where you’re going to spend your honeymoon.
1. How Close To Home Do You Want To Be?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with picking a honeymoon destination that is close to where you live. If you live near Niagara Falls, New York City or New Orleans, you could pick one of those destinations and get great discounts because you’re on your honeymoon, and save a ton of money in the process.

On the other hand, you may also pick a super exotic place like Fiji or Bali that’s on the other side of the planet, and really make it a trip of a lifetime. This decision is going to depend on a lot of factors, from your budget and time constraints to your personal preferences.
2. How Much Do You Want To Spend?

Deciding on your budget and sticking with it will make it that much more easier to decide where you want to travel. If you’re the type of person who likes to splurge, now is the time to do it because you only plan on going on a honeymoon once in your life, so you might as well go all out.

If you’re one of those frugal types who enjoy getting good deals and saving money wherever possible, you should know that there is absolutely nothing wrong with being budget conscious at a time like this. A honeymoon is the place where you could end up spending tons of money and feel guilty about it afterwards, unless you’re careful of course.
3. Beach Getaway or Sightseeing Tour?
Paris or Hawaii? London or Thailand? Another important aspect for arriving at a decision is whether you want to go somewhere south, where it’s hot and steamy, to relax and enjoy beautiful landscapes after spending a day on the beach, or you want to go explore other cultures and feast your eyes on stunning European art and architecture.

If you have time, you could always combine the two options and spend a few days in Athens before flying off to Rhodes, or you could go to Venice for a few days before making your way down to Sicily. Either way, knowing what you would like to do in advance will help make the decision process shorter and more efficient, allowing you to prepare for a trip of a lifetime.
