Travel Trend: Early Moons

Travel Trend: Early Moons

We’re all familiar with the honeymoons, the trip you take after your wedding ceremony. But what is an early moon? In this blog, The Crane explains this new travel trend and why it might be fun to take one!

We all know that wedding planning can be an extremely stressful time for the bride and groom and sometimes the couple really need to get away before the ceremony to just relax and unwind from all the pressure and stress. Thus, the early moon was born! It’s like a honeymoon, but before the actual wedding!

Sometimes in the midst of all the wedding planning and coordination, couples forget the main reason for all the actual planning. So, this early moon travel trend usually occurs just a few months or even weeks before the wedding, where couples escape for a few days of intimacy to reconnect and enjoy each other and remember all the reasons they decided to get married in the first place.

It is important to have most of your wedding planning done before this trip or leave someone very responsible in charge who is in line with your wedding goals. You wouldn’t want to leave your early moon to return to any unnecessary stressful scenarios leading up to your big day.

Although quite new, this trend is growing in popularity with many couples leaving the stress behind and jetting off to their chosen destinations to unplug before the wedding.

The Crane Resort in Barbados is the perfect early moon destination for couples who really want to get away, with several amazing room categories and packages to choose from. Book your stay and start packing and prepare to de-stress and enjoy the resort and all its offerings in the special company of your husband or wife to be.
