When it comes to planning your wedding, most of us will opt for a summer wedding. What could be better than marrying your best friend in the sunshine, and dancing with your friends and family during the warm summer nights?
Answer: Absolutely nothing. Instead of waiting months to go on their honeymoons, more and more newlyweds are choosing to go on their honeymoon straight after their weddings, in July. As it’s the height of holiday season, it can be difficult to choose where you want to go during the summer. But never fear, we have some of the best options for honeymoons in July:
Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, Bermuda is known for being the perfect mix of American and British culture (which is everyone’s favourite, right?) This horseshoe shaped volcanic island is incredibly picturesque and features some of the most rugged and beautiful landscape in the North Atlantic.
With its incredible turquoise sea, colourful coral reefs, colonial mansions, pastel-painted houses, and luscious greenery, Bermuda is an awesome conglomeration of English, American, West Indian, Portuguese and African influences – making for one epic and culturally diverse island. In June, Bermuda reaches highs of 28 degrees Celsius, so you and your new husband or wife can explore what the island has to offer in the morning, and cool off in the sea in the afternoon. What could be better?
For many years now, Bali has been the ultimate honeymoon destination – and it’s not hard to see why. This Indonesian island is the epitome of exotic luxury (and those are two words we definitely want involved in our honeymoon). The landscape of Bali is vast and varied. There’s everything from mountains and volcanoes, to Island Temples and glorious beaches. Because of its increasing popularity, there have been hundreds of all-inclusive and luxury resorts pop up over the past few years, which makes finding a hotel super easy.
Some of these hotels are pretty pricey, but the joy of a honeymoon is that it’s completely down to you. You can stay in a boutique hotel one night, and then an average-priced one the next. One of the best hotels in Bali is the Fivelements retreat – this will set you back around £200 a night, but you could add a night to your flyustothemoon.com honeymoon registry and ask a few of your guests to contribute to the ultimate Bali stay.
Honeymoon in LA
Many of us dream of going on the ultimate American adventure, and of course, no trip to America would be complete without a trip to LA. There’s the city, the mountains, the beaches and the celebrities – what more could you want for a honeymoon? LA is such a diverse location. In the morning, you can roller blade along Venice Beach and stroll along to the Santa Monica Pier. Then, you can make your way into the thick of it, and take a walk down the streets of Hollywood (keeping an eye out for your favorite movie stars).
At night, Los Angeles comes alive and gives you and your new husband and wife a wealth of opportunities to paint the town red, eat in some of the best restaurants, or chill out in some of the best and biggest movie theaters in the area. If you’re looking for a fun honeymoon activity, you could always visit Disney’s California Adventure. Stick a pass ticket on your flyustothemoon.com registry and take a trip to the happiest place on Earth. Just because you’re married doesn’t mean you have to grow up…
Honeymoon in Hawaii
I mean, it’s Hawaii. There’s average temperatures of 28 degrees Celsius. There are beaches. There are rainforests. There are water sports. There are luxury resorts.
You and your new husband and wife can spend your newlywed days dancing the hula, drinking pina coladas, wearing lei garlands, and eating all of the seafood you could possibly eat. Do we need to say anymore? We’re sold.
Honeymoons in July are such a good idea if you want to treat your honeymoon as your summer holiday, and there are so many options to choose from…
