Extend the special atmosphere of your wedding day for another week or two by booking a honeymoon that's just as memorable. Add some of these ideas to your wedding planning folder:
A beautiful, romantic island getaway, Bora Bora is tucked away close to Tahiti. Palm trees line the beaches, and little 'bungalows' for couples peek out over the water. See even more on a helicopter ride over the island. Many resorts and hotels give you the option to book photo sessions, spa treatments and special mealtimes for two.
The quiet and relaxing atmosphere on Bali helps you feel as if you've really escaped together. It's a fashionable, stylish destination that'll earn the envy of all your friends. Enjoy a little privacy on the pristine stretches of sand. On days when you feel like exploring, visit Bali's coral reefs, rice paddies or safari and marine park.
This dream destination makes picture-perfect honeymoons a reality. Head for secluded beaches with sand as white as a wedding dress – and you'll find 'something blue' in the miles of turquoise ocean. Each island in the Maldives is a jewel in the Indian Ocean. Dip a toe in the water outdoors, or bathe inside at a spa resort.
Most Mauritius hotels offer 'honeymoon special' rates and packages for couples. The island's exotic atmosphere draws from its rich culture and history. It's also the place to enjoy winter sun, as the weather is hot and sunny all year round. The 18th-century botanical gardens and swaying palms make a beautiful backdrop to holiday photos.
The unspoilt feel of the Seychelles keeps the islands near the top of the list for honeymoon destinations. It's a little taste of paradise, with more than 100 islands to discover. Mahe is the largest and busiest, and is lively and full of things to see and do. More hotel resorts and private getaways can be found on Praslin.
For a luxury honeymoon or more active trip, Kenya's consistently popular. As an alternative to relaxing on the beach, you and your sweetheart can head out on safari. The country's national parks and game reserves are where you can spot zebras, lions and elephants on a once-in-a-lifetime trip. Another romantic option is to take to the skies in a hot air balloon at sunset.
When you think of romance, you think of Venice. It caters to everyone, with hotels and restaurants ranging from budget to boutique. There's something about the city's waterways, gondolas and atmosphere that inspires love in all who visit. Hop over to Murano in a water taxi to see the island's world-famous glass-blowing and pick up a honeymoon memento.
