Honeymoons aren’t just for two anymore. After spending months planning your special day, why not make it last by inviting your closest friends on your honeymoon? “Buddymoons,” as the phenomenon is playfully named, are growing more popular. According to an article in Conde Nast Traveler, a recent survey on wedding travel found that 12 percent of Americans have attended a group honeymoon or buddymoon in the last five years.
As Conde Nast Traveler recommends, it’s best to pick a longer trip for your buddymoon, with a range of potential activities and sightseeing opportunities. Stick to groups of less than 10 people, mostly couples with similar outlooks and budgets. It’s always a good idea to minimize stress on your honeymoon!
If you’re planning a buddymoon, Divi Resorts offers a range of honeymoon packages at luxe resorts on Aruba, Barbados, St. Croix and St. Maarten—most with all-inclusive options. Spend a week in paradise with your other half, and give a few other couples in your friends circle an excuse to escape too!
