Europe Honeymoon Destination Guide 2019 *

#AD It’s a new year and that means at least one person you know got engaged over Christmas or has a wedding planned for 2019. If that’s you, massive congratulations! If not but you’d still like to dream about your ideal wedding and (more importantly in my opinion) your ideal honeymoon, then welcome. You’ve come to the right place. I’m not married myself but I know that if/when I do, the honeymoon will be the thing I look forward to the most. I’d rather have a small, cheaper wedding and save my money for a luxurious holiday where my partner and I can experience new countries, cultures and make loads of memories instead.

Europe is a great choice for a honeymoon destination. If you’re in the UK (like me), then nowhere is really too far. There’s likely going to be an airport not too far from you and you’re pretty much guaranteed some decent weather, if you pick the dates right.

Italy

Spending your honeymoon eating the best pasta and pizza in the world? I don’t mind if I do. When it comes to honeymoons in Europe, Italy can be one of the most beautiful and romantic choices (if you don’t mind gaining 10 pounds from all the amazing food). Italy has such a rich culture and not to mention stunning scenery, swoon-worthy beaches and exciting cities with plenty to see and do.

Austria

Probably not the first destination you’d think of when it comes to booking a honeymoon, but Austria has some of the most stunning landscapes and scenery you could ever possibly hope for when it comes to a romantic getaway where nothing else in the world matters. Austria is perfect for couples who love the outdoors, architecture or even a spot of skiing on the Alps, if you’re feeling brave!

Iceland

If you want a truly magical honeymoon, Iceland might be the perfect option. Honeymoon doesn’t always have to equal a hot country so changing it up and having a different sort of experience might be just perfect! Explore the fascinating city of Reykjavik, go on a boat trip, spend time in the infamous blue lagoon and spot the Aurora Borealis if you’re really lucky. Iceland could definitely be the most magical honeymoon choice.

Multi destination honeymoons

If you’re really going all out with your honeymoon and don’t want to stop at just one place, then a multi destination honeymoon might be an excellent choice for you to extend your holiday and really make the most of the time together. This can also give you a chance to do different types of activities, depending on what you both like. A multi destination honeymoon can take you all over the world – not just confined to Europe.

If you’re married, I’d love to hear where you went on your honeymoon! If not, where would your dream honeymoon be?

  1. Woud add Croatia to your list ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. We took our honeymoon over two years after getting married, haha, but we did a multi-destination honeymoon! We went to Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and France and it was so lovely. I love the Alps and they’re very romantic so made a perfect honeymoon tour!

  5. Iceland and Italy look incredible! Definitely bucket list places and great for a honeymoon.

    1. Iโ€™ve heard amazing things about Marrakech!

  7. All such good ideas! We chose Paris for our honeymoon which we adored but it took us such a long time to decide! I think Italy would be absolutely perfect xx

    1. It really does ๐Ÿ˜Œ

  10. Italy is breathtakingly stunning, that would be such an amazing honeymoon destination! Thanks for sharing this ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Iโ€™d love to go ๐Ÿ˜Œ

  12. I’ve always loved the idea of the Maldives for a honeymoon – but the idea of a multi destination honeymoon is right up my street!

    1. It’d be fab wouldn’t it!

  13. I am always up for Italy!. Capri, Sicily, Sardinia or anywhere else really. It is always i beautiful. I think Kenya, Tanzania or Japan would also be on my list though

    1. Some interesting places!

  14. I’m not married or engaged, but I would love to have a multi destination honeymoon! Growing up in the US airfare was EXPENSIVE to go outside of the US, but now that I live in Denmark traveling around Europe is doable & would be amazing!

    1. Wow! That sounds interesting, where youโ€™ve lived!

  15. I haven’t thought much about honeymoon’s as I feel like it will be a long while until I get married – weddings are so expensive, even if I wanted to get married I think me and my boyfriend would wait till we had some good savings for it. But as a dream destination I would LOVE to go to Japan – just because we both want to go, and we’re such nerds so I’d go to the Studio Ghibli museum, the Pokemon shop ect, but then seeing the old culture and the amazing buildings would be breathtaking! I would also love to visit Iceland.. I might just go this year because I’ve wanted to go for so long, but it looks like a very pretty place!

    1. Oooh Iโ€™d love to visit Japan too! Tbh, I wouldnโ€™t spend much on a wedding at all!

  16. I’m seriously debating a honeymoon touring Italy. It’s my favourite place. I’m going to Turin for Easter and I can’t wait.

    1. Oooh that sounds like itโ€™d be amazing!

  17. We went to Cape Verde, it was so move but very hot xx

    1. Sounds lovely!

  20. I love Italy but next on my list is Iceland x

    1. I assume not for a honeymoon though? Haha ๐Ÿ˜‚

  21. Oooh I donโ€™t think Iโ€™m even close to a honeymoon yet (donโ€™t even have a bf!) but some of these destinations look absolutely amazing!
    Iceland is high on the list of places I want to go, as is Italy and I will perhaps do a weekend in Austria if I can get time off this year!
    Thereโ€™s so many beautiful places I want to visit in Europe – Germany being on of them. I speak a bit of German and loved learning the language and all about the culture and life over there so Iโ€™m hoping to be able to go at some point this year too!
    One place I definitely need to visit is Malta and Iโ€™m not sure if youโ€™ve been or seen photos but itโ€™s STUNNING. One of our consultants at work is Maltese and came back from visiting with the most gorgeous photos Iโ€™ve ever seen! I think that might be my summer holiday planned…!

    Great post and sorry for the long comment thats slightly unrelated!

    Melanie || http://www.melaniewithanie.com xx

    1. Haha not at all! Iโ€™d love to go to Germany too – itโ€™s high up on my list, as it Iceland and Austria ๐Ÿ˜Œ

    1. Wow lucky you!

      1. I am very lucky xx

  23. Austria looks so beautiful! I’ve been to Italy, Venice in particular and loved it. The food was incredible! I never had a honeymoon of any sort, something that I do regret but you listed some really great places! ๐Ÿ™‚
