#CocoTravel : Top locations to enjoy a minimoon

Here at House of Coco we know how much preparation goes in to creating your perfect wedding. Whatever your budget, planning an idyllic day can be an incredibly exciting challenge, and arranging your perfect honeymoon is an important part of the package. Budgets can be tight when trying to decide on what style of holiday to take after the big day, so have you considered a minimoon?

Honeymoon trends are changing and expensive long-haul marital holidays are becoming less fashionable in the changing face of wedding preparation. So if you are looking to save some money or don’t have the time to take a couple of weeks off, this popular holiday choice is helping people to enjoy a great honeymoon experience at a fraction of the cost.  A minimoon is just like a conventional holiday, just over a shorter space of time and generally a bit closer to home.

Minimoons are a great option for anyone wanting an intimate and relaxing escape as you don’t even have to leave home soil to find the perfect destination. Take a look at these top picks for the best locations in the UK to enjoy a minimoon.
