Opposites Attract: Honeymoons to Please Every Bride and Groom

Posted: 06/11/2012 12:21 pm

We truly believe the old saying "opposites attract." Just check out all the oddball celebrity couples out there - Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey, Sandra Bullock and Jesse James (well, maybe that one didn't quite work out). There's certainly plenty of proof out there that seemingly mismatched couples can make it work -- and that includes for their honeymoons. So if your hubby-to-be likes to play it safe but you like adventure, or if you'd rather get a dose of culture but your bride prefers the beach, we're here to help. Our comprehensive honeymoon guide features four hot spots with a little something for every kind of couple.

The Ideal Couple for the Destination: When the bride seeks culture and the groom longs for the beach, Barcelona is the perfect spot for both. Barcelona is Spain’s coolest and most modern city. Tourists pour from every corner of the world to experience the town’s vibrant nightlife, excellent cuisine, beautiful Gothic and one-of-a-kind Modernist architecture, and cutting-edge design scene. But that’s not all — the Catalonia capital is also home to a nice city beach with a hopping waterfront.

Where to Stay: The H10 Marina Hotel is perfect for those looking to split their time between the beach and the streets. The hotel is within walking distance of sights such as the Picasso Museum, the La Barceloneta beach, and the gorgeous Gothic Quarter. Highlights include a lovely rooftop pool with city views and a bar, a romantic spa with great treatments, and a Mediterranean restaurant with a solid wine list.
