Oh, the honeymoon. For me, planning the honeymoon was the best part of planning my wedding. Don't get me wrong, I loved (almost) every second of planning my wedding, but there's just something about preparing for a week of laying on a beach that just warms my heart. Plus, this is one part of the wedding-planning process that the groom will definitely be into! So grab your betrothed and check out our tips for planning a green honeymoon.
