You've made your vows and threw your bouquet. So, what's next?
Amidst your intricate plans of making your wedding day the one you’ve always dreamed of, don’t neglect the most important part — the honeymoon. Planning your honeymoon factors in many considerations including cost, location and time constraints. Don’t forget to add private and romantic. Disneyland is a lot of fun, but it doesn’t afford you the special alone time you crave at the start of your marriage. As you plan your getaway, take these incredibly romantic destinations into consideration.

You can’t beat this romantic scenic location when you’re looking for the most luxurious stay of your life.
2. Fairmont Chateau on Lake Louise, Canada
If you’re getting married in the summer and love winter activities year-round, consider the incredible Fairmont Chateau, a castle-like hotel on the edge of the glacier-fed Lake Louise.
