Everyone has that one girlfriend who constantly dreams about their big day (and has to forcibly tell you about it every time she’s had one too many). The dress will look like this, the jewels will be from his mother, the flowers will be orchids, and on and on. If you’re the type who hasn’t even thought about next week, let alone your own wedding, then we are in the same boat. The thing I look forward to about marriage (besides the diamond) is the honeymoon, a sweet reward after all the tedious wedding planning stuff. Below are 5 super-romantical resort-spa locations from all over the world, each with their own signature own honeymoon experiences. Whether its wine tasting in a Tuscany, walking hand-in-hand in along a white sand beach or melting away during a couples massage, these resorts are sure to be the icing on your wedding cake.
