12 Awesome Honeymoon Destinations for Same-Sex Couples

This past fall, I sat on a panel at a Bouche Productions LGBT wedding event with former G Philly editor Josh Middleton. We chatted about trends, there was a Q&A where the engaged attendees could ask us anything they were wondering about, and there was also a travel component (because hello, honeymoon).

A travel agent sat on the panel with us, and during one of the chats, he informed the crowd both about destinations they might consider for their honeymoon that were quite gay friendly—and also about cities, countries and islands that are not gay friendly, and where they might even feel unsafe. It was a bit surreal, to sit in front of a crowd of blissful, engaged couples and talk about how there are places in this world where they are not welcome with their love and hand-holding, but jarring and upsetting a reality check as it was, it’s still reality, and the information was extremely helpful for the couples to hear.

I’m notorious for being an over-packer: No matter the distance or duration of my trip (whether it’s a quick weekend visit to a friend in Baltimore or a week-long getaway to the Caribbean), I’m constantly traveling with more baggage than necessary. I’m sure many of you can relate.

And while planning out my outfits is always a challenge, my biggest packing downfall is by far in the beauty department. I admit, my daily skincare and beauty routine is entirely too long, and even when on vacation I can’t seem to narrow it down to just the necessities.

The fine people at the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino looked around recently, and realized they had quite a few things to celebrate.

For starters, on Tuesday of this week, it was National Flamingo Day. The resort is also set to launch a flamingo-inspired, honeymoon-perfect romance package (the very pro-commitment monogamous birds mate for life)—and they just so happen to have a totally-in-love pair of ‘em that live right there at the resort. And so, they did the only thing they could do, obviously: They got them hitched!

Use This Guide to Figure Out Which Caribbean Island Is Right for Your Honeymoon

To me, the first thing a couple should decide upon when beginning the narrowing down of their honeymoon locale is whether they’re going to take an explore-all-of-Europe kind of trip, or a lay-face-down-on-the-beach kind of trip.

Once you’ve decided on that—let’s say, for the sake of this post, it’s the latter—then you’ve got to figure out which region of the world’s beaches you wish to lay upon (Mexico? Indonesia?), and then you’ve got to pick a country or an island. It’s all worth it, no doubt, but unless you have both had a dream destination in mind your whole lives, it won’t necessarily be as easy as a clicking BOOK! on the computer.
