Why you should consider a mini-moon instead of a honeymoon

After all of the hustle and bustle, you need something to look forward to when you’re planning a wedding – and although your big day is definitely something to look forward to, it’s not the kind of relaxing day you’re really after. Instead, you’re looking for something a bit longer, in a different country, with a free bar, beaches for dayyyys and the chance to wear swimwear for a whole week. Yep, sounds like you want a honeymoon! As much as you can plan a wedding on a budget, planning a honeymoon on a budget is a whole new ball park entirely. This is why many couples are now opting to go on a mini-moon instead of a honeymoon! Here’s why you should consider it…

There’s absolutely no pressure

It’s fair to say that planning a wedding is no easy task. You spend all of your time focused on choosing the right flowers for your colour scheme, the perfect bridesmaid dresses for all of your friends, and the most beautiful decorations for your wedding theme that you often feel under even more pressure to get your honeymoon just right. So, why add even more stress of planning a big, extravagant honeymoon onto your to-do list? If you keep it simple and book a short mini-moon with your new husband or wife, you can enjoy your first few days as a married couple together without nursing an emotional breakdown on the side.

You get to enjoy each other’s company

Although long-haul honeymoons are often luxurious and enjoyable, these honeymoons also require a lot of travelling time – which is less time spent with your new husband or wife. Instead of enjoying your first few days of marriage together on a cramped plane with stale air and hundreds of other people, enjoying what the English countryside has to offer or going on a European road trip is the best way to enjoy each other’s company and relish in the fact that you are officially married. There are countless romantic destinations in the UK and the surrounding areas that offer the tranquillity and luxury of long-haul honeymoons, and you could even revisit somewhere that is special to you.


You can save up for something even better

Most newlyweds avoid looking at their bank balances after their wedding to ensure that they can remain calm and collected during their first few weeks of marriage. After all, it’s a time to celebrate! Even if you plan a wedding on a budget, it will still take a huge chunk out of your savings – which means there is little more to spend on a honeymoon. So, why damage your balance even further with a honeymoon straight away? By choosing to go for a mini-moon closer to home, you will be able to save money for something even better in a few months or even years. There’s no shame in making your honeymoon perfect!

You may not have the holiday

As much as we would all love to have a six-month holiday twice a year, our work schedules often get in the way. If you’ve already taken time off work to plan your wedding and get married, it may be that you are not authorised for another one or two weeks in the sun with your new husband or wife on a honeymoon – as much as that sucks. In this case, it makes sense to take advantage of a mini-moon. This way, you can still get away with your new hubby or wife without getting in trouble. You can then book later in the year when your annual leave is renewed.

When deciding whether you should go on a mini-moon or a honeymoon, you really need to look at what you want as a couple. If you don’t have the time, the money, or the mental capabilities – go for a mini-moon! You won’t regret it.
