After you create and confirm your honeymoon trip, Audley will put together a personalized website to share with wedding guests which will serve as an online registry. Donations can be made in monetary amounts and go towards the total cost of the trip, or can be purchased by excursion or activity. Some of the more popular destinations for Audley’s honeymoon couples include South Africa, French Polynesia, Japan, Borneo and Seychelles.

While every trip Audley puts together is 100% tailor-made for each couple, they’ve shared with us some example itineraries. Again, the world is your oyster, but perhaps these sample itineraries will get your travel juices flowing! The destinations below are the Audley team’s top picks based on upcoming honeymoon hot spots and the itineraries include a little bit of what the company feels are essential elements for any honeymoon: a little adventure, a remote or exotic location, avoiding crowds, epic scenery, and properties which will go above and beyond to make your honeymoons special.
