With wedding prices skyrocketing to an average of $35,329 in the U.S. according to TheKnot.com, couples are getting creative with their honeymoon plans and inviting friends and family to join. Group getaways are a great way to defray cost and celebrate your recent nuptials with those closest to you.
Not sure your buds would be on board? According to a survey from travel site Priceline.com, about 12% of survey respondents said they attended attended a “buddymoon” in the last five years, with two-thirds of them spending more than $800.
Even celebrities are turning their postnuptial adventures into a larger affair. According to Brides.com, the new “friend-moon” trend has been embraced by celebrities like Jennifer Anniston and Justin Theroux, who following their wedding took a group trip to Bora Bora.
To accommodate this fun new trend, Cap Maison Luxury Resort and Spa in Saint Lucia is offering a promotion to make any bride and groom (and their besties) consider expanding their trip for two into a group affair and take their buddymoon at Cap Maison.
