5 Amazing Outdoor Weddingmoon Alternatives You Should Consider
More and more couples are embracing the weddingmoon concept, and it’s easy to see why. Simply put, a weddingmoon is a wedding and honeymoon that’s rolled into one. It’s wonderfully convenient since you don’t have to travel to several destinations to celebrate two of the most memorable events in your lives as a couple.
If you are thinking of marrying and honeymooning in the great outdoors, here are the best alternatives to consider. These places will not only guarantee a splendid backdrop, but they also ignite a romantic vibe, which is what weddings and honeymoons should be like.

Surely enough, Corfu possesses a nostalgic charm that will allow couples to celebrate the wedding of a lifetime.
Corfu enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean climate all year round, with mild winter and hot dry summer months.

When the wedding is over, spend your honeymoon at the charming mountain village of Cortina D’Ampezzo. This is the perfect place to enjoy some greenery, with the breathtaking Dolomites in the background.
