With the growing popularity of weddings abroad, more couples than ever before are considering the option of jetting away and celebrating their wedding in a unique and fabulous location, but what are the advantages and disadvantages ?

 

Most couples prefer a very personal wedding, just the way they want it to be.

 

What are the advantages, Which destination, who to invite, who organises,    what is the cost of getting married abroad and who pays what ?

 

When you get married in your home country there are lots of social obligations, that are irrelevant for weddings abroad.

 

Often there is a social obligation to invite people you hardly ever see,

with whom you have little or no contact, resulting in a guest list that is much longer than anticipated, which in turn results in wedding budget that is substantially higher then it should be.

 

But what's even worse is that you're spending the most important day of your life with lots of people you actually don't actually care about.

 

Not so with a destination wedding !

 

Everybody understands that's it's impossible to pay for travel expenses of all of your guests to a wedding abroad, and so people that don't really want to attend to your wedding, won't be inclined to pay for the travel costs.

10 frequently asked questions about weddings abroad

 

According to marketing research 2/3 of the wedding couples consider a destination wedding.

 

The information on the internet and on various forums is confusing, to say the least.

 

As a professional and experienced wedding planner on the Spanish Costa Blanca, I receive a lot of questions about weddings abroad.

 

On these pages I try to answer to these questions.

Gone with the social obligation of inviting people you hardly ever see or hear.

Gone with the obligation of inviting all colleagues and members of your sports club.

 

Just invite those people you really care about, whom you really want to attend to your wedding,

and organise a wedding drink when your back at home for all the rest.

And if you do want - or need to - invite other people. Just tell them they're more then welcome, but that obviously you can't pay for their travel expenses, and just wait and see if they really want to come.

Weddings abroad are usually a lot more intimate

because only people you really care about will attend !

The wedding couple usually arrives a few days before the wedding, and guests arrive the day before.

Sometimes they all travel together.

 

The short vacation allready starts when you leave your home country, gone with stress, and as soon as everybody is settled in, it really kicks off.

 

Obviously the destination and the wedding venue are of great importance and to give you a better idea, we've created a moodbook for each type of wedding

 

Together with the superb climate of the Spanish Costa Blanca, where the sun is shining more then 300 days per year, and you're in for an unforgettable wedding.

 

In short, the most important benefits of destination weddings are ;

And since all are staying a couple of days on the destination,

your wedding is celebrated in a vacation style atmosphere !

 

Uncomparable to the stress of a traditional wedding !

Superb weather ! The Spanish Costa Blanca has over 300 days of sunshine per year, so you don't have to worry about the weather on your wedding day,

and of course the sun also helps for making great photo's.

Unique wedding venues ! The Costa Blanca has some amazing wedding venues, from cheap to luxurious, from traditional to trendy,

with of course beach weddings as an absolute favourite !

A destination wedding is also a ( short ) vacation, not only for the wedding couple, but also for their guests. Relax and enjoy !

If you want to you can extend your wedding abroad, to include your honeymoon. Saves you on stress, travelling, and money.

From a very intimate "just for 2" right up to a big wedding with hundreds of guests, the Costa Blanca has perfect venues for every wedding !

And weddings abroad are even a great option for weddings on a budget, because the guest list is usually much shorter, and prices in Spain are a lot cheaper then in most other countries. Guests usually pay for their own travel expenses and accommodation.
