Celebrating Life’s “moons”

Celebrating Life’s “moons”

Posted by Meghan Augerinos in Around The World 30 Apr 2017
  • Travelling for a celebration of one of life’s major moments is no longer just about the honeymoon. Over the last 5 years, minimoons and babymoons have become increasingly more popular.
  • Minimoons act as a prelude to the honeymoon and are for couples that need to postpone their honeymoon to a later date. Honeymooners are postponing their honeymoon 3-6 months after their wedding date when they can’t afford the larger honeymoon bill or are not able to take off more time from work in order have a longer honeymoon and travel longer distances to bucket list destinations. This closer to home, romantic vacation is for a few days away at a destination that that is within driving distance or a short flight.
  • Babymoons are extremely popular with our repeat clients and are one last hurrah for couples taking advantage of a relaxing or romantic vacation before their baby is born. The parents-to-be are interested in a getaway to a zika-free destination.
