How to Plan the Perfect Mini-Moon, No Matter How Short 

 

By Jess Levin of Carats and Cake

Not every couple has time to jet off on a honeymoon right after the wedding, but that doesn't mean you can't take a few days, or even just 24 hours, to celebrate your new relationship status. Here, wedding experts share their tips on how to plan the ultimate mini-moon no matter how short.

Pop a Bottle

 

"Bring along a bottle of wine, that was served at your wedding, to enjoy and reminisce about all the special moments of the big day." —Miki & Sonja Rakicevic, Owners & Photographers, Miki & Sonja Photography

MAKE IT EASY 

"What you need most post-wedding is a chance to reflect and recharge. Pick an easy destination so you can focus on just enjoying yourselves." —Liz Banfield, Owner/Lead Photographer, Liz Banfield

DITCH YOUR DEVICES 

"It isn't every day that we are able to leave our phones at home without consequence—and leave our to-do list at the office! Enjoy your person and every moment of your new life together, without the rest of the world in your pocket!" —Eliza Stickney, Planner & Designer, Firefly Events

TREAT YOURSELF 

"Treat it like a vacation, even if it is mini. Splurge a little on indulgences like a couple's massage or experiences like horseback rides on the beach. If you can spring for the upgraded suite at the hotel, two or three days spent will feel like a dream come true. And don't forget to let the hotel or resort know you're there on your mini-moon, many will throw in perks and goodies." —Brandi Reiland, Owner, Soiree Weddings & Events

EXTEND YOUR STAY 

"If you're getting married at a luxury resort, consider extending your stay there for a few days. Most of your guests will probably head out the day after the wedding, which means you'll have the resort to yourself. You may also be able to take advantage of a lowered room rate offered to your guests and get a few nights of honeymoon bliss for a reduced rate." —Amy Nichols, Owner, Amy Nichols Special Events

PICK A NEW EXPERIENCE 

"Choose a destination that you may not ordinarily choose to visit, like a local island, a ski lodge, or a winery that you saw in a magazine. While it's always nice to go back to a favorite destination, mini-mooning somewhere new can be even more romantic and exciting." —Aleah & Nick Valley, Owners, Valley & Company Events

STAY LOCAL 

"If your wedding is in New York City and you don't have time for a 'destination' honeymoon, stay right here in the Big Apple, which is a perfect destination and provides excitement, electricity, and at the same time, romantic atmosphere. The Mandarin Oriental New York is a great choice for a couple of days of pampering." —Cristina Verger, Founder/Principal, Cristina Verger Event Planning & Production

DELAY GOING BACK TO REALITY 

"No matter how big or small your mini-moon is, it's something to look forward to and definitely helps with the post wedding blues. Even if you are planning to go on a bigger trip later, try to steal away for even a night." —Cassandra Santor, Owner, Cassandra & Company
