Many couples opt for an all-inclusive experience after the stress of planning a wedding. The lure of a destination where all the details are taken care of is strong.
However, other newlyweds are choosing to venture off the beaten path, traveling to Nordic, Canadian and Italian destinations. This type of trip can lead to secluded trails, local culture and charming accommodations. If you and your fiancé are considering a less traditional honeymoon destination, there will be more planning involved.
These apps, covering everything from destination inspiration to packing checklists, will help keep your honeymoon planning under control as you prepare for your wedding.
These apps are perfect for deciding where to go and what to see.
