Besides showing up, what are the groom's responsibilities?

Bermuda, Bahamas...

Traditionally the groom plans and pays for the honeymoon. Decide on a budget for your trip, and narrow down your destinations based on your interests and how much you'd like to spend. Are you an adventurous couple that would enjoy backpacking across Europe, or a duo that wants to relax and soak up the rays in the Caribbean? The possibilities for a fabulous honeymoon are endless.

Make it your responsibility to pack the plane tickets, passports and your new, shiny wedding bands to take with you on your first trip as husband and wife!
