Let's be honest — the honeymoon is what most grooms (and brides!) look forward to the most during wedding planning. It's where you can sit back, relax, and enjoy each other's company in a location you've probably only dreamt of previously. But first, you have to figure out where to go! As couples get more adventurous with their destinations (African safaris and jungle adventures in Central and South America are becoming wildly popular), the choices can get downright overwhelming.
Enter Pinterest. The very same site that likely helped you pick out wedding details is also a hotspot for honeymoon content. We constantly search for wanderlust-inducing photos of far-off destinations where newlyweds can really feel alone, as well as more practical ideas, like where to stay and what to do. Not only are the pictures pretty, but they're a great way to discover that tropical island you'd never heard of but now have to go to. We plucked three of our favorite pins off of our "Honeymoons" board to show you exactly what we mean. Read about them below and don't forget to follow us on Pinterest for more wedding ideas of all kinds!

First things first: Where on earth do you go? Generally, couples flock to the same places over and over again — Fiji, Italy, Hawaii, the usuals. This pin, for instance, shows the number-one destination for 2014, French Polynesia. With that picturesque scene taken on its isles, it's no wonder why.

Once you pick a destination, it's crucial to find a hotel that you'll enjoy and that will provide the best possible honeymoon experience. This pin leads to a slideshow of the best honeymoon resorts in Asia and Australia. From seaside spas in Thailand to rustic hideaways in New Zealand, it's a goldmine of information that you'll definitely want to pin.

Finally, you need to round out your packing list! You'll obviously need cute clothes and maybe a passport, but don't forget that travel and relaxation often entail a good book. That's why this graphic is so great — it's filled with honeymoon-friendly reading material you'll want to check out (if you can steal away time from your new husband, that is!).
