Depending on whether you want to go on honeymoon immediately after your wedding, or if you're happy to delay it until a later date to suit your dream destination, really can narrow down where you go.

After all, if you're planning a dream trip, you'll want to visit your chosen destination at the best time of year to see it. Landing in paradise while it's monsoon season will certainly put a (literal) dampener on your holiday.

That's why it's important to check out the best time of year to go on honeymoon for your dream holiday spot.
