Hot Trend: Honeymoon-Inspired Weddings

The recessionista bride might not be hosting a lavish destination wedding, but we love how resourceful brides are letting their honeymoon destinations inspire their local celebrations instead! From sweet seaside inspiration to elegant and exotic locales, this hot new trend in wedding planning is sure to leave all of your guests daydreaming about a getaway of their own.

Can’t envision what a honeymoon-inspired wedding would look like? Here are a few popular destinations and the wedding decor they might inspire:


Bold orchid hues, tropical flowers and a hint of sunshine yellow will transform your celebration into a beach-worthy event (even if you’re in a landlocked state without so much as a lake nearby!).


Known as a city full of romance, style and glamour, Paris is the perfect honeymoon destination. Add a touch of chic Parisian style to your reception with favors and invitations inspired by the City of Love.

The Bahamas

When you want to spend your honeymoon lounging on a beach and soaking up the sun, there’s no better destination than the Bahamas. A touch of coral and a few stylish seashells will have all of your guests daydreaming about blue seas and white sand.


Full of culture, couture and cuisine, Japan is a stylish destination for jetsetting couples. Encourage your guests to get in the fun with chopstick favors and these gorgeous little flower petal sushi rolls.


Give your elegant event a touch of casual Mediterranean flair with these simple ideas inspired by Italy’s wine country. Luscious tomatoes will add a pop to your centerpieces, while bold blues and charming patterns will transform your invitations into a classic work of art.
