Millennials are ditching traditional honeymoons and going on many-moons to maximize their time away from the office. Buzz60’s Sean Dowling has more.
Sure, you’ve heard of honeymoons, buddymoons, minimoons, and even earlymoons (you can thank Pippa Middleton for that one). But now there’s an even newer post-wedding travel trend popping up: “manymoons.”
“I’ve seen more and more of my couples switching up the tradition of honeymooning for two weeks right after the wedding,” says Amy Shey Jacobs, a wedding planner with Chandelier Events. “Instead, they’re opting for multiple mini-vacations over the course of their first newlywed year.” Yes, instead of taking weeks off of work to go on one big trip after saying “I do,” couples are planning a series of smaller honeymoons to celebrate their new Mr. and Mrs. status.
That’s what Juliette Schwab and her husband Brett Caspi did after tying the knot in September 2017. “September was an extremely busy time for both us with work,” says Schwab. “So, rather than taking a big trip after our wedding, we decided to take a week off and go to Napa and Sonoma in California doing what we love doing: eating, drinking, and just being together.”
