Spots To Travel

The planning, the prepping, those endless checklists: Figuring out all the wedding hoopla is part one of your romantic adventure together.

The planning, the prepping, those endless checklists: Figuring out all the wedding hoopla is part one of your romantic adventure together. Part two—your honeymoon—is next on your list. Do you want to escape from it all and just chill on a beach? Explore a cool city, trek through exotic temples, or spend a good part of your lazy day being pampered? Or maybe a minimoon is needed to tide you over until the Big One‚ or a stay at an eco-friendly resort that feels naturally perfect.

This year for our annual Brides Honeymoon Awards, we’ve come up with a giddy mix of old-school and hip, OTT luxe and surprisingly affordable places to kick off your new life together. We’ve winnowed our choices and given the gold to getaways that will deliver the best memories ever, whether your fantasy trip is sipping a jalapeño margarita in a beach cabana on the Riviera Maya, visiting the ancient pagodas in lush and lyrical Chiang Mai, or having a heli-adventure picnic in Alaska’s Denali National Park. Start dreaming now…

The Moorings Village. , Islamorada, Florid

What’s unique about this luxurious yet low-key resort (a former coconut plantation)—other than the swaying palms and blow-your-mind sunsets—are the charming villas with their lovely porches to while away the hours when you’re not paddleboarding or snorkeling or—fancy this—fly-fishing in the Florida Bay mangroves. In other words, there are many ways to enjoy this sanctuary of calm, whether you snuggle in and simply take in the views or go for the lap pool and tennis courts. Make sure to book a romantic dinner at sunset on the veranda at French-fusion restaurant Pierre’s in Morada Bay.
