Every engaged couple wants their wedding day to be special, but many duos tying the knot would also agree that going on a honeymoon is just as exciting as the big day.

Like the wedding itself, a honeymoon should represent the couple’s interests and what they value. It’s the first trip a married couple will take, and it should be a trip they look back on fondly as helping to set the tone for their union. If you plan on saying “I Do” in 2018 and still haven’t decided on a honeymoon location, these are the places you should consider.
