Quiz Tips:

This quiz can help you narrow down your honeymoon options to find one that matches your preferences. Take the quiz and then have your fiancé take it. Compare your answers and start planning. This may involve a little compromise, but stay focused on what the most important factors are for each of you. Don’t forget, you will have years ahead to take other vacations where you can do or see the things that you couldn’t do this time. If you’re using a travel agent, this list is a good way for you to let him/her know what you envision. Also, keep in mind that weddings are a huge undertaking. You are bound to be very tired after all is said and done. Many newlyweds report that they had no idea how exhausted they would be on their honeymoon, not from the vacation activities, but from the wedding!
