Earlymoon: The New Travel Trend for Couples

Getting married is not just a big step in the relationship, it also means that you have to start planning a great ceremony that requires a lot of dedication in order to make it a perfect day. Therefore, all that effort and nerves are rewarded in the long awaited honeymoon where the couple can finally enjoy a well-deserved rest in a romantic trip.

But there’s a new trend that is changing this for many newlyweds. The “earlymoon” is a honeymoon trip taken before the wedding day. This is a great idea for some couples, since this trip can help them relax from all the stress of preparing the ceremony, and of course some celebrities have jumped on the bandwagon. Pippa Middleton and her new husband James Matthews, went on a trip to San Bartolomé Island before the great ceremony they held in May.

But this trend is not only for the rich and famous. With good planning, you can make a more budget-friendly escape as a couple, such as going camping or choosing a closer destination, to help you disconnect.

“How to Be Married” author Jo Piazza decided to travel with her fiancé to none other than Chile, one month before the big day. “We knew that the wedding was going to be amazing, but we also knew that there would be a lot of stress among family, friends and so many small details, we wanted to escape and reset before we worry about all that,” said to Conde Nast Traveler.

Besides walking through the Atacama Desert and skiing in Portillo, one of the good things about the trip from Piazza to Chile is that they were able to take dance classes, which according to her was an unforgettable experience.

For her, an escape before the day of marriage is necessary for couples, but they do not have to be expensive outings such as Pippa Midleton’s; it may even be sleeping in a hotel in the same city where they live, because what is important is to escape a little of all the pre-wedding madness.

The best time to arrange the “earlymoon” is before the invitations are sent, since many of the major decisions and stressful moments occur two months before the wedding. If you really want to get away, take a break in planning before this time and you will be recharged and ready to work the big decisions when you return.
