When people think honeymoon, tropical destinations are the first places people think of going, but the tropics aren't the only honeymoon worthy destinations. Remember, this memorable trip should be as personalized as the wedding was.

Do lots of homework or solicit the help of someone who knows.

The ‘I do’s’ have been said, the last dance has been danced and the rice (or confetti or petals or birdseed) have been tossed. Now it’s off to the honeymoon; a place of rest, relaxation, sightseeing and, of course, lots of love, sweet, love.

Aviva Samuels of Kiss the Planner says, “When people think honeymoon, balmy tropical destinations are the first places people think of going…and with good reason! Popular all-inclusive resorts such as Sandals and Beaches are a perfect blend of paradise and ease. Why have to take out your wallet on a honeymoon, when the biggest decision you’d want to make after months of wedding planning and decision-making is Perrier or Evian?”

Virtually every tropical destination offers a variety of packages catering to newlyweds. The price on these packages varies according to the destination, length of stay, inclusions and amenities. Using popular travel sites such as Travel Zoo, Expedia, Orbit, Travelocity and others can boost savings even more. So if sun, surf and Pina Coladas topped with Captain Morgan dark Rum float your boat, then Bon Voyage.

But the tropics are not the only honeymoon worthy destinations. Remember, this memorable trip should be as personalized as your wedding was.

For big city night life, shows and concerts, New York City, Las Vegas, New Orleans or Los Angeles have a lot to offer. “If the beaches still call your names, but action is what you crave, try Miami’s prized-possession, South Beach,” says Aviva Samuels, Florida Wedding Planner. “There’s no shortage of things to do in this see-and-be-seen town . I think it’s the best of both worlds. ”

On the opposite port and for those who like seclusion, consider a stay at a cozy cottage on Michigan’s Mackinac Island. Accessible only by ferry, there are no motorized vehicles allowed on the island. Bicycles, horse-drawn carriages or walking are the only modes of transportation.

Romantic intellects will enjoy the museums of Washington DC, Chicago, New York, or centuries-old European cities such as Prague, Paris, and Rome.

Wine and food lovers might bathe in every lovely sip in Tuscany or Spain. Try Napa or Sonoma if a domestic label is preferred. Savor every bite in a Swiss or Parisian or bakery. Each provides a charming delectable romance.

Artsy places like London, Seattle, San Francisco, Cape Cod, or less well-known, the Sunshine Coastal Region of British Columbia, Canada are all beautiful, romantic and can speak to one’s “inner artist”.

For nature enthusiasts Chile might be a perfect option. Romantic, but also adventure-filled, Chile is striking, majestic with a savage and diverse landscape that includes both a dry, hot desert stretching in the north, as well as a mountainous patch in the South, and the untamed wilderness of Torres del Paine National Park. If climbing volcanoes and exploring glacier and geysers sounds like a thrill then prepare for a honeymoon adventure.

Certainly any mountain retreat with roaring fireplace can be the backdrop for many happy honeymoon memories. Consider the Swiss Alps, the majesty of Utah or Colorado.

If bride and groom are on a spiritual path to celebrate the beginning of their new lives together, If a pilgrimage to India or the shamans and healers of the Arizona region don’t offer the right appeal, one may consider the ancient city of Machu Picchu. Perched high in the Andes and one of the most beautiful and spiritual places in the world this New-Age mecca will take your relationship to new heights.

“Do lots of homework or solicit the help of someone who knows. Once you’ve decided where you want to go, take advantage of written review sites, travel deal websites and other reputable sources. They will save you money, time and, if you’re not a seasoned traveler, mistakes that can ruin what should be the trip of a lifetime,” concludes Aviva Samuels, expert wedding planner and destination wedding specialist.
