Honeymoon or Mini-Moon

The price of weddings is skyrocketing and with the ever increasing demands of work, newlyweds are seeking mini escapes directly after their wedding in order to delay the traditional and longer honeymoon until the best season hits their destination of choice.

Peak wedding season in the UK doesn’t naturally mean it is peak season in many of the traditional honeymoon destinations.

For busy couples a mini-moon / maxi-moon idea works well for them as they have the choice of a short break post wedding to perhaps destinations with a shortish flight time such as Marrakech, Venice or Rome but some may choose Antigua, Dubai or New York as this is easy to organise with the sheer exertion of organising the wedding; these holidays can be done relatively quickly.

The advantages are clear to see. One aspect is of course in the planning of your honeymoon. Once back from your mini moon with the memories and photographs of your special day, you can put the focus on planning your dream honeymoon at the perfect time for your chosen destination.

For couples looking for a romantic UK break, you will find that UK Hotels are tapping in on the trend by creating standalone rooms with extra privacy for mini-mooners. These can range from the Cotswolds to Scotland with a range of budgets to suit everyone.
