More and more couples are organising two honeymoons, these days. The first takes place near home, somewhere they can easily get to; a place where they can quickly escape the months of planning their wedding took to create. Now that it's over, all you want to do is flop onto a vast and unbelievably comfortable bed, while having every amenity and indulgence handed to you on a plate. And fair enough! Wedding planning is exhausting and, when it's done, many of us are left feeling emotionally drained. A 14-hour flight isn't so appealing when all you want to do is relax and reminisce with your partner about how amazing the day was and all those unforgettable memories you've formed as newlyweds. Besides, with many millenials now covering all or part of the cost of their big day, it's no surprise that they want to do something slightly more affordable – and start saving for a long-haul 'later-moon' next year.
