Planning a wedding abroad might just be one of those crazy decisions that you make on the spur of a moment. Of course, it is possible you may think this is the best most romantic idea that you have ever had. Why not combine the best day of your life with a fabulous break or holiday? It will certainly make the honeymoon get away easier. Perhaps you’d like to be married in somewhere that is particularly special to you. It could be that you have interfering families who will be on the back foot slightly if it all takes place on your terms in a neutral zone! Whatever the reason what are some things you should think about?
Great news, we’re getting married abroad!
Of course, it is great news. As if getting spliced isn’t enough, you are going to invite close friends and family to help you celebrate halfway around the world. There is rarely neutral territory here. People will either see this as the best and most fabulous opportunity or, they are going to see it as a bit of a nuisance. The former will be packing their bags and intending the make the most of it. The latter will bemoan the fact that they have to take time off work and pay for travel and accommodation. Well, you can’t and won’t make everybody happy. That would be true whatever you decide. So if this is what you want, then do it.
Things to consider.
You’ll be taking on more responsibility for sure.You will need to know about booking services and venues. You will need to deal with the reception and the catering. The same applies to the music. You might well have to do these things at home, but taking it abroad just makes it that little bit more challenging. You’ll have to consider details such as flower arrangements and outfits for the bridesmaids. Are you planning a wedding theme? Instructions will have to be given to guests as to what they need to wear and bring.
On the other hand, you might be planning to get married at a resort. If that is an option, you could save yourself a lot of worries. Many resorts have wedding facilities and will be able to advise you on how to make the best of them.
Packing is always going to be a major skill. You are going to need super powers of organisation. The basics must also be considered. Have you thought about the wedding rings for example? A quality couture business who understands what makes the perfect wedding and Diamond engagement ring will be best placed to help. You’ll need to ensure that they arrive on time and are safe and secure while you travel.
Travel in itself can be an issue. It can be a good idea to give yourself a few days to settle in before the formalities. This can be a lovely time allowing the wedding party to relax and come together informally.
Pros and Cons
To be honest with you, if this what you have decided, then you deserve every good wish. It will no doubt be an amazing experience. The only cons might be the logistical problems of booking flights and getting everybody to the right place at the right time. But that is no worse than any long distance travel arrangement.
Having said that you will be having the best day of your life in an unrivalled location surrounded by the people who are important to you. And that is what your wedding is all about, so why not make the most of it?
