Honeymoons were arranged and financed by the groom in olden days. But, nowadays it is a joint arrangement and a lot of discussion goes into it. Make sure that you seek the preferences of your would be bride before you fix the location. This would make her feel loved and keep her happy as well. Let her have her options. But if you know some place that she really wanted to visit in the past then just give her a good surprise. She will thank you with loads of kisses and lots more!
