Ideas for Getting Married Abroad – Venues and Locations

Many young or not-so-young couples often get married abroad and the number is increasing and is quickly becoming the norm. This comes as no surprise as there are so many places and different types of weddings to choose from, not to mention the weather; well at least it’s much more likely to be warmer and dryer than the UK.

So, what’s out there for you?

Types of Weddings Abroad

Beach Weddings

Ok so you’re probably already aware of beach weddings, but what about the other additional features that are available that you perhaps possibly have not thought about as yet. So here are some great ideas for your beach wedding:

Get married on a secluded beach – this is not as expensive as you would perhaps first think and there are some magnificent destinations with secluded beaches so be sure to have a look online (you may have a particular destination in mind).

Some of the secluded beaches may have extra elements such as rock pools, tidal pools, coves, tunnels, beach bars and so on. There are also great views and venues available in some destinations that allow you to make your day that bit extra special; you don’t just have to get married on a beach that doesn’t offer any of these elements.

Companies that specialise in weddings abroad may provide entertainment, staff, registrar, food and drink as well as the hiring of a room for the night party.

If you do want a full package, be sure to check exactly what is and isn’t included in the price; never assume. On the other hand, companies may have a couple of elements included in the price e.g. staff, entertainment and food; in this case, you would have to arrange any extras yourself.
