Let’s be honest. When planning a wedding, promising our love for each other is – of course – the most important part to think about. It’s not something to take lightly and even though these days getting a divorce is quite easy, you should at least be sure about who you’re marrying in the first place. Then, there’s the wedding day itself. Who do you want to be there, where do you want to host your special day and what’s the theme of the day? A lot to think about and, all in all, getting married can be a stressful event.
Luckily, once it’s all over, you get to escape reality for a bit. During your honeymoon you can fully enjoy each other’s company without having to worry about a thing. However, whoever says honeymoon says travelling and that hasn’t been so evident these last few years. Couples who got married during the pandemic not only had to change their ceremony and party but also chances are their honeymoon plans got cancelled.
1. A new chance
However, now that the pandemic is slowing down and borders are being opened to the public again, honeymoons are back. And they’re here to stay. Moreover, a lot of newlyweds have now decided to give their honeymoon another chance, resulting in a true honeymoon renewal trend. Or at least, that’s what we get to understand from travel management company Winged Boots.
This latest travel trend is all about renewing or upgrading your first honeymoon to experience MORE, whether that’s more adventure, more relaxation, or just simply enjoying the honeymoon you had always dreamed of.Winged Boots told Metro UK
2. Catchup consumers
The whole honeymoon renewal trend finds its place in the larger catchup consumerism movement. Whereas people postponed plans and purchases during the pandemic due to the uncertainty or because of travel restrictions, they are now fully enjoying life again and jumping on the opportunity to be able to travel. And since a lot of them spent less during the lockdown, they’re now willing to invest those savings in once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
We hope that this trend also encourages couples who may be coming up to momentous anniversaries to renew their first honeymoon experience, to celebrate their relationship now that we can travel more freely.David Ox, Managing Director of Winged Boots, told Metro UK
So, if you’ve had to cancel your honeymoon plans or drastically them scale down, this is your time to shine. As countries all over the world are opening up once again, it’s about time to think about where your honeymoon plans will take you. Carpe diem.
