While some people want a traditional wedding, others want something a little different. One option that is becoming increasingly popular is to get married overseas. Here are just a few of the reasons why you might want to consider this if you are planning your own wedding.
Although you might have some beautiful wedding venues close to your home, considering locations further afield opens up your options and you might find a location that is much more beautiful. Getting married in your dream destination adds to the romance of the day and also looks great on your wedding photographs. If you choose a place with a warm climate, you are also improving your chances of having thesun shining on your big day.
A Low-Key and Intimate Celebration
While some people want a huge celebration and invite every single person they know, others simply want a low-key and intimate celebration involving only the couple or a few close friends and family. A wedding abroad is the perfect option if the latter is more your style. If you want the ceremony to be intimate but still want to celebrate the event with friend and family, then you can do this at a later date with a party when you return home.
A wedding takes a lot of organising and is a stressful time for many people. Just some of the things you need to think about in preparation for the special event include the venue, dresses, suits, flowers, catering, transport and much more. Organising a wedding overseas is much simpler as it is hardly any more difficult than arranging a holiday abroad. If you opt for a wedding package, most overseas wedding venues will make all the arrangements on your behalf. You simply need to find outfits for the event and turn up for your big day. As a result, you are much less stressed and are free to enjoy the occasion.
A Wedding and Honeymoon Combined
Preparing and organising a wedding is often tiring and the day of the wedding itself is exhausting! Having a honeymoon immediately after the wedding involves packing, making arrangements and travelling at a time when all you want to do is relax and take a break now the wedding planning is over.
Choosing to get married overseas removes this problem because you are enjoying your wedding and honeymoon all rolled into one. You can take sometime to relax both before and after the event and simply enjoy your time abroad.
Each person’s idea of the perfect wedding is different, but marrying abroad is one option available to those who are planning their wedding. There are some fantastic benefits for opting for this type of wedding and you can tailor both the ceremony and celebrations to reflect your personal preferences.
