Once the wedding has gone off as smoothly and successfully as you could ever hope for, it is time for the cherry on the cake - the honeymoon. If you have spent months planning the wedding, you have surely spent a little time planning the honeymoon - the location, applying for leave from work beforehand, and visa complications if you are travelling abroad. The visa process can be lengthy and a little bit of a kill joy for some. However, not all foreign destinations have to end up being a source of visa related worries. Here are a few wonderful foreign honeymoon destinations that do not require a visa, leaving you to bask in the first romance of marriage.
