Honeymooners - Where and How to Have the Time Of Your Life!

Whether you prefer a beach or a bustling city, there are plenty of places you can go for a wonderful and unforgettably romantic experience as newlyweds... Find out more here.

The whole notion of honeymooning is changing, according to various researchers. Everyone knows the original notion: the honeymoon was a newly-wed couple's chance to get to know each other and have a private, romantic time together before heading back to the reality of day-to-day work and responsibilities. Nowadays, with the demographics of married couples changing, the whole concept of the honeymoon is changing as well.

Traditional Honeymoons... Luxury, Privacy, and Romance

Most couples really want to splash on their honeymoons. Luxury, privacy, and romance are the key objectives for most traditional honeymooners (who tend to be on their first marriage). Listed amongst the most luxurious honeymoon destinations in a recent MSNBC article were:

If you're an average American and can't afford this kind of extravagance, there are more "traditional" traditional: a trip to Paris or Italy (not mentioned above, but popular for obvious reasons). Both are unforgettably romantic destinations, with just the right blend of activity and quiet for honeymooning newly weds. Then, there's the true cosmopolitan trip to a city like New York, which is so packed with things to do and a very affluent atmosphere, it really does make you feel like you're splashing out.

Perhaps the more exciting traditional honeymoon options involve trips to more exotic locations than any of these; way outside of your general sphere of orbit. Beaches in Hawaii are still popular with first-time honeymooners, according to trend researchers. However, trips to places like South Africa, New Zealand, or Thailand, for example, are becoming increasingly popular.

Couples are always looking to share a new and wonderful experience when they decide to go on a honeymoon. A safari in South Africa, for example, is something that is impossible to forget and decidedly unique. Many Russian brides are compelled to return to the scene of their honeymoon years later, to share the experience with their children.

Unconventional Honeymoons... Even On A Low-Budget

A honeymoon vacation for $3,700 ($1850 per person) is quite expensive for most. This is the average sum that a couple spends on their honeymoon according to a Modern Bride survey. The average annual income of a two person family is $61,129 according to the US Census, so, on average, couples are splashing 6% of their annual income on their honeymoons.

Perhaps the most exotic ideas for low-budgets are to be found at www.foreverwed.com. Some of the cheapest and most cheerful destinations are Orlando, Las Vegas, Hawaii, Acapulco, and Jamaica. These options are up to about $4,000 per couple. You could also try a cruise; if booked well in advance, they can cost as little as $500 per person and one of the many appeals is that you get to see many different destinations as part of the package. The most creative ideas are bound to come from you a trip of significance to you and your bride based on your shared interests and hobbies. You never know what you could come up with.

Wherever you can go, and wherever you do decide to go make sure you have a good time, a time that both of you will remember for the years to come! This does not depend as much on the amount of money you spend but more on who is around you. If you are truly in love you will be in heaven wherever you are and whatever you're doing.
