Planning a wedding is a long process and can be high-stress at times. According to a recent post by Philadelphia Magazine, the term “weddingmoon” has been born and is now trending!
Similar to the term “babymoon”, a weddingmoon consists of a vacation that allows the couple to get away from the chaos of wedding planing so that they can reconnect and recharge.
Since the honeymoon tends to be an extravagant vacation, a little nearby weekend getaway will do the trick.
