Zola recently surveyed 800 engaged and newlywed couples about honeymooning. Interestingly, we found out that the mini-moon is continuing to rise in popularity, but it's not replacing the grand vacation. Twenty-five percent of those surveyed said they embarked on both a getaway and a longer holiday.
And, it turns out that Hawaii continues to reign as the top destination amongst our couples. The likely reason? Safety! Seventy-two percent of our audience said global issues like Zika and security are a factor in deciding their honeymoon destination.
So, what destinations took second and third place? Those surveyed were interested in romantic stays in Italy, closely followed by jaunts to Mexico.
Whether you’re traveling to these magical places or somewhere else entirely, make your trip last forever with decor inspired by your chosen destination. For inspiration, check out this list of registry gifts based on the top spots Zola Couples jetted to this year.
