More and more people these days are opting for a destination wedding. Throwing off the shackles of custom and convention, couples are choosing to head for snow-capped mountain villages, sprawling lake-sides or exotic beaches to say their vows. However, few people will consider the pros and cons with these kinds of venues.
For example, have you thought about the language complications, or the fact that you cannot legally marry in many countries if you are not residents? Have you considered the fact that many of your close friends and family may not be able to go due to financial constraints? Many couples also believe that it will be cheaper to have their wedding abroad, but when you factor in the money you will need for repeated flights, wedding coordinators and accommodation, you might as well consider other options.
Below we’ve shared this useful infographic, that details all the positives and negatives of booking a holiday abroad, as well as some of the other most popular venue options. Whether you decide to opt for that beach-front hotel or stunning stately home instead, we hope you find it helpful on your journey to planning the perfect wedding.
