The honeymoon has been a long-standing, and almost compulsory, tradition for newlyweds for many decades. This has resulted in many reinventions. We’ve recently enjoyed reading about a number of honeymoon trends:
- “Buddymoon” – friends join the newlyweds.
- “Minimoon” – a shorter post-nuptial break.
- “Earlymoon” – the pre-nuptial vacation.
However, according to Brides.com, this year is set to be all about “Many-moons”. Many-moons are for the more adventurous couple. Summed up, it’s the idea of travelling to several destinations rather than limiting the itinerary to just one.
Turn Your Honeymoon Into Several Adventures
“We decided instead of limiting ourselves to one large honeymoon that we would do multiple trips,” one bride told Brides.com. “We would do multiple trips to keep it more fun, and also have a lot to look forward to.”
According to the latest Romance Travel Study, roughly 82% of newlyweds are opting for two- to five-day romantic getaways after the big day, USA Today reports.
“I like to call it ‘Millennial Wanderlust,’” said wedding planner Amy Shey Jacobs. She told Yahoo Lifestyle: “Today’s couples don’t want to sit on the same beach for 10 days straight. Often, they want to mix it up”.
In addition to that, another reason for the burgeoning many-moons trend may be careers, Brides.com reports. They explain: ‘You get at least 10 federal holidays throughout the year. So start planning around those days by adding on an extra day or two.’
The Ideal City Escape
It seems like for many it’s all about escaping city life. A honeymoon in Whistler is the perfect addition to any many-moon itinerary. Newlyweds can experience a relaxing mountain getaway within close proximity of Vancouver without any laborious travel.
“Just two hours north of Vancouver by road lies Whistler. The natural beauty and unique mountain lifestyle offers an escape like nowhere else”, explains Tourism Whistler.
“Visit any season of the year and you’ll be welcomed like family, swept up by the unique energy in the Village. (You) have opportunities to go on adventures that inspire and challenge you”, writes Tourism Whistler.
In summary: “When you find yourself in the mountains, breathing in the wild air, you will realize there is as much to be discovered inside of you, as outside..”
