Because of the pandemic, a lot of weddings and honeymoons were delayed. According to a survey from Expedia, 97% of couples reported their honeymoon plans were disrupted during the pandemic- they either had to cancel, postpone or downsize. Now that the world is opening up, couples are making up for it.
Here are some trends from the couples surveyed:
Trips as Wedding Gifts – 65% said they’re more likely to include a honeymoon fund on their wedding registries.
Mega-Moons – 53% plan to spend more for their honeymoons than they had originally budgeted. 59% now reporting more interest in a major, bucket-list-type trip.
Duo-Moons – 83% surveyed plan to take more than one honeymoon, or split their travels up by taking a quick trip immediately after the wedding and then an extended one later.
Redo-Moons – 54% of couples who are already married said they weren’t totally satisfied with their pandemic-era honeymoon and want a “do-over”
