Updated: Jun 16, 2023

When it comes to planning a honeymoon, couples today are looking for something a little more exciting than the traditional beach getaway. They want to find unique and meaningful experiences that they can cherish together long after their special trip is over. With so many options available, it's easy to see why honeymoon trends are changing.

For those newlyweds looking for something a bit different, this list will provide you with some unique honeymoon trends that are sure to make your trip unforgettable!

1. Adventure Moon

Even if you spend a week at a resort that boasts a stunning beach, more and more couples choose for their once-in-a-lifetime getaway, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, and not to sink into the sand for the entire time. If you’re a more active couple who loves physical challenges and off-the-beaten-track experiences, such as checking out the Big Five on safari, whitewater rafting in Costa Rica, or hiking the Inca Trail at 13,000 feet, opting for adrenalin-packed activities in far-reaching locations are foolproof ways to get your adventure pulse fluttering.

2. Multi-Destination Moon

Are you considering covering multiple honeymoon destinations in one go? Do you want to make the most of your days away from the office? Honeymoon hopping is a chance to incorporate several destinations at once. You can take advantage of far-flung places you may never travel to again. Or, you can compromise on the honeymoon itinerary by spending time in different settings—a week in the city, then a week on the beach. Honeymoon hopping allows you to get the right blend of the perfect honeymoon by splitting the biggest trip of your life after your big day in a few different spots.

3. Mini-Moon

Another fast-growing trend is the Mini-Moon. Usually 2 to 5 days in length, the perfect mini-moon is a much-needed mental break for newlywed couples to enjoy after their wedding, instead of a full-blown honeymoon. The mini-moon is a condensed version of the honeymoon, merging romance and adventure with a price tag and schedule that works in conjunction with all your wedding planning. A mini-moon also gives you the flexibility to plan an extended honeymoon later on down the line. The best thing about a mini-moon? You can treat yourself to a ‘real’ second honeymoon later. What’s not to love? Two honeymoons are better than one.

4. YOLO Honeymoons

Many couples have adopted the “you only live once” mantra and are blowing their budgets even further by chasing that insta-worthy trip of a lifetime. The opposite of the mini-moon, couples are taking several weeks off and hitting several destinations or even a whole continent! Whether you're visiting unforgettable destinations such as the Seychelles, Bora Bora, the Maldives, or Bali, Indonesia, or you desire to get to know all of Europe's best cities, packing multiple destinations (in Europe is a unique and popular thought) into your honeymoon is exceptionally mainstream and it's simpler than you think! A YOLO honeymoon tosses reality right off the airplane because, after all, you do only live once.

5. Foodie Honeymoon

A growing appreciation for gourmet cuisine has put couples on the hunt for once-in-a-lifetime culinary experiences. These food experiences typically influence the niche foodie destination you choose for your honeymoon. Growing in popularity, culinary tours range from cooking demonstrations to shopping at the local markets. How romantic would it be to learn how to cook a dish together on your first trip as husband and wife? If you love food, a culinary honeymoon offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy life to the fullest while eating your way around a destination.

6. Mega –HoneyMoon

For 2023, couples aren’t settling on just one dream destination. For newlyweds with the time and inclination, the Mega-Moon blocks out months on the calendar for a deep dive into travel exploration. Mega-moons are typically taken later than a traditional honeymoon, sometimes months after the wedding excitement is over. These trips are long, elaborate, and packed with amazing experiences. The extra time to plan and finance a mega-moon means you can craft the perfect getaway without compromise. The mega-moon rewrites the rules of honeymoon expectations.

In conclusion, your honeymoon should be a time to make lasting memories that you both can cherish for a lifetime. With just a few simple steps, I can help you make your honeymoon perfect for you and your partner. From finding the right destination to planning out activities and making sure all of your needs are taken care of, I'm here to ensure that your honeymoon is everything you dreamed it to be.
