Are you one of the brides and grooms thinking about taking a "Manymoon" instead of just one romantic trip? If you haven't thought about joining in on the latest honeymoon trend or haven't heard about Manymoons yet, learn all about them below - then see if a Manymoon might be right for you.
Here are all the big reasons that so many millennial newlyweds are opting to join in on the latest honeymoon trend:
With so many millennial couples focused on rising in their careers to build their futures together, it can be easier, less stressful, and less disruptive for work to plan a bunch of fun long weekend getaways throughout the first year of marriage than taking all your remaning vacation days at once for a one or two-week trip. Hence, cue the Manymoon! Each trip may be smaller, but sometimes doing Manymoons allows you to actually see and do more, despite it limiting how far you can travel. Yahoo! Lifestyle interviewed wedding planner Amy Shey Jacobs, who said she is seeing more and more couples join in on the Manymoon trend.
“Couples can’t get away from work when they want to anymore," Jacobs said.. "The pressure doesn’t comport with the traditional two-weeks-off-the-grid honeymoon.. So, many moons allow for multiple long weekends away that couples can take when everyone else in the world turns off, too like holiday weekends.”
With a little planning, you can incorporate money-saving honeymoon packages into your Manymoons so that each one is extra special, with romantic inclusions like massages, roses and more!
Millennials love to travel. They have a wanderlust not seen in previous generations, partially fueled by the rise of social media and more affordable airfare. Other factors fueling the trend are money-saving innovations like Uber, for a cheap way to avoid renting a car, and AirBandB, which gives couples flexibility and cost-effectiveness, even for fancier types of accommodation. Renting an entire house or cabin is a more accessible romantic getaway option that it's ever been before, along with offering more potential privacy than many types of traditional accommodation can offer. Glamping is also a hot trend for Manymooners, as it combines privacy and luxury with the beauty of the great outdoors. When time and money are both in short supply, the Manymoon makes for a popular option.
Keep That Honeymoon Vibe Alive
The best part about Manymoons? You can keep that honeymoon feeling going all year long. Why only have one "trip of a lifetime" when you can have many? Visiting different destinations, each with a different look, feel, and theme is a fun way to keep that honeymoon vibe alive for longer than was possible for couples in the past.
Is It Right For You?
Whether or not Manymoons are right for you depends on what type of couple you are. Think of your work schedules and budgets, and what you both want out of the honeymoon experience. It all depends on your personalities and lifestyles. If it feels like a good fit, go for it!
