While most Northern American and European couples opt for the wedding in the summer, opting got the winter leaves plenty of opportunity for an amazing honeymoon. I personally love to use the winter as an opportunity to get away from the cold and enjoy a tropical locations, while some enjoy embracing the winter and checking out an igloo hotel. You may even consider postponing your trip till winter even after a summer wedding.  There are cost savings when traveling in the winter time and you will also avoid some of the jam-packed resorts in the summer time.

Instead of experiencing the typical winter of knuckling down for cold weather, heading for the gym to achieve your new years resolutions and bundling at night with the heat blowing and waiting for the summer months to arrive, use this time of year for vacation! Whether you’re looking for a break in a kingdom of beaches like the Caribbean, or week in the snow like the Finland, Northern hemisphere winter offer wonderful weather conditions for having an unforgettable honeymoon!
