Today we’re looking at the reasons behind having a wedding abroad?
It’s important to consider your reasons at this stage to make sure that a wedding abroad is right for you
ONE – The Weather
The weather is one of more obvious draws for choosing a wedding abroad. With weddings abroad possible year round all over the world if you long for sun or snow you’re sure to find it abroad, if not at home.
TWO – The Cost
Weddings abroad are not only cheaper than in the UK but naturally tend to have smaller guests lists, these two things alone will generally lead to an immediate cost saving.
Whether cost is your driving factor or not you can certainly have a more extravagant wedding abroad than you would at home for the same budget, as long as you choose the right venue. Destinations like Greece and Cyprus are excellent value for money, whilst destinations like Italy and France, Spain can be more expensive, but even in these locations some offer excellent prices, especially in low season, so it’s worthwhile shopping around.
