When planning your wedding, do not forget to put some well worth-it research into your dream honeymoon.  As once your big day happens you’ll need something exciting to look forward to as you may experience a case of the wedding blues, and will need a long well-deserved break!

When it comes to picking your all-important honeymoon destination ensure you think of what satisfies your getaway needs and what appeals to you holiday personality! (Mine is total lie-on-a-beach-with-a-coconut by the way.)  Of course, the Maldives is a luxurious paradise, but what if you’re not that bothered about sand between your toes.  A better option sounds like a city break!
We’ve put together some beach and city honeymoon ideas to help you find your perfect location.
