Picking the perfect honeymoon is as much about when you go as where you go. That's because the timing of your trip can affect everything: the vibe, the weather, the activities, and the cost. Think about how different a trip to Aspen is in the winter versus the summer. Or how much crazier the crowd is in Cancun during spring break than it is during the winter peak season. Or how much less sunny SoCal is in June than September. (It's called June Gloom for a reason.)
So if you're getting married in the spring and want to plan your escape around your wedding date, definitely factor the season into your decision. One of the best things about saying "I do" around this time is that it's the shoulder season for a lot of honeymoon favorites, including the Caribbean and Hawaii. That means that it's the period between the high and low seasons, a time when the weather and the prices are good. It's also fall in the southern hemisphere, so you can score great rates in bucket-list hot spots like New Zealand and Peru. Considering a road trip? This is an amazing time to take one, whether you want to hit California's Highway 1 or Texas Hill Country. Remember, spring is a time of new beginnings — so start clicking and find yours.
