Ever heard of a babymoon? Well, what about a buddymoon? Or a manymoon? Honeymoons nowadays are taking on all sorts of shapes and sizes, and the terminology can be a little confusing. Let’s break it down.
Think of an earlymoon as the honeymoon you have before the wedding. It’s a chance to relax, re-connect, and temporarily forget about the pressures of planning a wedding.
If you're pregnant and in a relationship, a babymoon is the couple’s last vacation together before their little one arrives.
More and more couples are foregoing a solo vacation right after the honeymoon in favour of a group holiday with their closest friends – usually other couples.
And others still will bring along their whole family for the ride. As long as you and your new husband or wife still have enough quality time together – why not?
Some newlyweds either don’t have enough time or enough money (or both) for an extended trip after a wedding. A minimoon is a quick getaway that doesn’t have to be any less perfect or memorable than a traditional honeymoon.
Not quite the same as a minimoon! A tinymoon is when you have a destination wedding and decide to spend a few more days in the city or area where you wed.
That couple who spent six months travelling the world and visiting exotic places (and posting envy-inducing snaps on social media) for their honeymoon.
Why have one holiday when you can have lots? Any holiday you take during the first year of marriage is considered part of the manymoon. You can never have enough travel time with your new partner-in-life, after all!
