THREE – Guest Numbers
If the thought of arranging a huge wedding is already making you break out in a sweat then a wedding abroad could be perfect for you. The cost of flights and hotels is a natural deterrent for some guests and if you really want to restrict your guests list then consider booking a venue that has a maximum guest capacity. No need to make excuses then for not inviting people!
‘I’m so sorry, but our venue is so small we can only invite 30 people, otherwise I’d love to invite you’
FOUR – Unique Venues
Do you desire a wedding ‘out of the ordinary?’
Maybe you’re imagining a cliff top at sunset, being barefoot on the beach or hiring a historic home or private villa for the day?
If a wedding at home doesn’t give you this option you may have to look further afield and a wedding abroad offers you endless unique options. Quite often one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding abroad is choosing the perfect venue with so many incredible options to choose from, imagine powder soft sandy beaches, magnificent castles, luxury yachts or a vineyard in Italy, you will truly be spoilt for choice.
FIVE – Family
We’re such travelled people now that quite often we end up living away from where we grew up, I myself met my husband whilst working in South America and we settled eventually back in the UK, but in a different area to where we grew up. So with family spread out in different locations quite often it’s easier to find a central place to meet and have your wedding abroad as part of a family meet up/celebration.
SIX – Just the 2 of you
Maybe you want very little fuss and attention, no stress of planning and just want to turn up and do the deed! It could be your second time around and this time you want a different experience to your first wedding, weddings abroad are absolutely perfect for those that want to get away from it all and get married alone. We have so many requests from couples wanting to elope, that we’ve introduced for 2020 our ‘enchanting elopement’ series, offering wedding packages designed for intimate weddings for couples with up to 10 guests.
SEVEN – Renewal of Vows
Perhaps you have a special anniversary coming up and you want to celebrate this with renewing your love for one another, or maybe you’ve had a particular tough few years and you want this renewal to be the start of a new chapter, either way you want the place and venue to be unique and different to your wedding day. A wedding abroad is perfect for this and you could team it up with a holiday of a lifetime too!
Why not, after so many years together, you deserve it!
EIGHT – Same Sex Weddings Abroad
Same sex weddings are not yet legal in all countries so it may be that you want to go abroad to get married in a destination that does recognise same sex weddings, you can have a wedding in a unique destination and follow it up with an wonderful honeymoon at the same time.
