As well as planning a wedding, brides and grooms to be also have the somewhat difficult task of searching for the dream honeymoon destination. Should it be two weeks relaxing on a Caribbean beach or a romantic getaway in the Tuscan hills?

If recent research is anything to go by, these popular honeymoon locations are no longer on newlyweds' radar. Dr Peter Slowe, founder of Projects Abroad, has discovered that couples are staying away from the obvious holiday choices and embarking on month long adventure holidays. Newlyweds are taking 'honeymonths' in far flung destinations such as Peru, Fiji and Cambodia, and swapping a day by the pool for volunteering projects.

While a 'honeymonth' sounds very appealing, would you choose to spend your first month of married life on a gap-year style experience? Let us know what you think below and follow MyDaily's brides to be in Three Weddings and a Blog.
