Illustrated by Refinery29
The pandemic hasn't just changed what we want from a wedding. It also appears to have reshaped our honeymoon plans.
According to a new survey by Expedia, more than half (53%) of prospective newlyweds are planning to spend more on their honeymoon than they originally budgeted. An even higher percentage (59%) said they're now considering visiting a bucket list destination.
More than half of couples who got married during the pandemic said they're weighing up the idea of a "redo-moon" because they aren't satisfied with their original honeymoon trip.
Meanwhile, 83% of couples said they're planning multiple honeymoons; for example, a quick trip straight after the wedding followed by a longer holiday at a later date. Expedia calls this double whammy a "duo-moon".
The survey also reveals that the UK is currently the most sought after honeymoon destination, with multi-city trips exploring the country by train proving especially popular. You can check out a recent list of the UK's trending staycation destinations here.
