When getting married, one of the most time honored traditions in contemporary weddings is going on a honeymoon after you tie the knot. Honeymoons are trips that couples take together to celebrate their marriage and are typically taken to destinations the couple might not normally go to. But, what if you don’t want to follow tradition? Maybe you and your significant other don’t like the same travel destinations. Or, maybe you just want some time to relax on your own? When it comes to taking a honeymoon, couples today are looking for different kinds of vacations and getaways that are anything but traditional. That’s where the solomoon comes in. Solomoons are becoming a popular alternative to honeymoons. But, what is a solomoon? And, why would you want to take one? Let’s take a look at the solomoon phenomenon.
Simply put, a solomoon is an alternative to the traditional honeymoon. Instead of going on a vacation as a couple after getting married, couples take separate vacations after their wedding. Also called a unimoon, solomoons can take lots of different forms. Solomoons can include travels with family and friends or can be taken solo. Essentially, solomoons can include anyone else you want to travel with, except your significant other.
Solomoons aren’t for everyone. But, they might just be the best thing for you and your significant other. Couples who have more modern approach to relationships and weddings might like the idea of a solomoon because it represents independence. It gives couples time to self-reflect and appreciate the solo time they have on their own. For others, it’s a time to celebrate and connect with family and friends who also play an important role in one’s life. And, sometimes solomoons are practical for those couples who don’t want to travel to the same places or who can’t coordinate work schedules and time off. No matter the reason, solomoons can be a great alternative for newly married couples who want to experience travel but don’t necessarily need to travel together.
The trend for solomoons is to take them directly after you get married. Weddings can be stressful. And, just like a traditional honeymoon, a solomoon is the perfect way to destress and relax for the happy couple. But, another trend for solomoons is to take them before you get married. This means that the couple takes separate vacations before the wedding as a way to self-reflect and relax before the big day arrives. Just like a babymoon, it’s a way for the couple to have one last solo trip before they get married. Some couples are taking solomoons before the wedding and still having a traditional honeymoon after the nuptials to include the best of both experiences.
Solomoons, like honeymoons, can be any destination that you’re interested in. From local getaways to exotic destinations, there’s something for everyone and every type of solomoon. As a couple you can choose your own solomoon destinations based on your personal interests and goals for your solomoon. If you want to get away from it all and relax, a tropical destination might be your best bet. If you want to experience new cultures, explore an international destination with lots of activities. No matter where you go, solomoons give you the flexibility to choose what you want to do without having to worry about what compromising the destination or activities.
Whether it’s before or after you tie the knot, solomoons can offer a lot for couples who don’t want the traditional honeymoon experience. Not only does it give the couple time for independent self-reflection and relaxation, it can also provide time to connect with other important people in your life. It also gives you flexibility for travel preferences and even challenges with work schedules. Overall, solomoons can be an excellent alternative for couples who want to celebrate their marriage but that traditional honeymoons don’t work for. So, when it comes to planning your post-wedding celebration, a solomoon might just be the best way to celebrate as a happy couple in your own unique way.
