Should you have a wedding abroad?

Getting married is supposed to be an exciting time and should be exactly the day you and your partner want, but there are some points to consider before you decide where you are going to get married. Some people dream of getting married abroad somewhere hot and although this can be a lovely idea, there are most definitely things to consider.

Firstly, you need to consider the current situation with regards to travel. It may be that Covid restrictions are lifted a lot more by the time you travel but no one knows exactly what the situation will be later this year or even next year.

Regardless of Covid restrictions, some people who you really want to attend your wedding may not be able to come. They may not be able to get the time off work, or they may not be able to afford to come. Although getting married abroad may actually work out cheaper for the happy couple, it is often at the expense of everyone else who may have to pay thousands of pounds to come. You may decide that you don’t mind people not being able to come and still want to opt for a wedding on the beach. Lots of people decide to instead go it alone and then have a party for family and friends when they return.
