Traditionally chosen by the groom and kept secret, honeymoons are now far more likely to be organised by the couple together. The trip should be researched carefully to avoid disappointment or overlaps with previous holidays; many couples choose somewhere neither party has visited before.
It is important that the destination meets the requirements of both the bride and groom. They should decide what they want from the trip: relaxation, action, adventure, culture or a combination of the above. The desired climate, accommodation, length of flights, food and activities on offer should also be taken into account.
The bride will appreciate a surprise or two, so clever grooms will keep several aspects of the trip a secret.
