Even if the wedding takes place in the most wonderful corner of the country, a honeymoon away from home allows young people to get away from the problems of everyday life and dream of a "wonderful future", what awaits them. Once upon a time the groom could surprise his wife, selecting a destination, and she packed outfits for all occasions into suitcases. Today the bride and groom are planning their trip together. Sometimes they cover its cost with money received as a wedding gift.
There are different possibilities, better though, that the newlyweds do not visit the family and leave with their friends. They can even postpone the miraculous, long journey, if their professional duties or finances do not allow them to fulfill their dreams.
Formerly, there was a custom of visiting after returning from a honeymoon trip. At present, newlyweds no longer do this, they can, however, announce a return to everyday life, inviting loved ones to the so-called "housewarming" (if they have their own apartment, which in Poland is unfortunately not obvious).
