Weddings Abroad: Do’s and Don'ts

Getting married on a white sand beach, looking out to crystal clear waters, is the dream for many engaged couples. Choose a travel specialist when it comes to weddings abroad and you could realise that dream and enjoy the ultimate destination wedding.

Here’s how to ensure that your wedding abroad is the special experience that you deserve:


Stay True to the Dream

It’s easy to get swept up in the organisation of a wedding, or overwhelmed by the myriad of choices available to you, but it’s important to keep a clear focus when it comes to why you chose a destination wedding in the first place.
If you dream of a white beach wedding, make sure that your chosen spot is pristine and as secluded as possible. If you always wanted an intimate wedding, don’t allow yourself to get carried away or feel pressured into invited more people than you would have liked to share your big day. If you want to combine your wedding with a luxurious honeymoon, choose the best accommodation options available. Keep firmly in mind whatever it was that initially made you feel that weddings abroad were your cup of tea.

Research Your Destination

It’s so important to get the destination right when it comes to planning your big day. The time of year that you wish to get married will play a big part in the destination you choose – or the other way round of course, if you have your heart set on a particular place. At destination weddings specialist Trailfinders.com you can search by season to find the when it’s best to go where.

Plump for a Package

One of the biggest benefits to a destination wedding is that someone else will do the majority of the planning and the organising for you. Why not make an appointment to see a wedding specialist at Trailfinder’s travel centre in Kensington? You can also discuss all of your options by phone and hand the hassle and stress over to someone else!

Add Touches of Luxury

If there ever was an occasion to push the boat out, your wedding abroad has to be it. Splash out on luxurious accommodation, special excursions and tours, and perhaps even upgraded flights or premium transfers. With tailormade holidays you can put together your perfect luxury package that you and your other half will never forget.

Consider Your Wedding Attire

Research the climate in your destination of choice and be sure to dress accordingly. The traditional heavy, structured wedding dress may not be comfortable, and you can forget heels on the beach! Choose a lighter, more flowing dress style and a cool, cotton or linen suit for the groom to ensure that you both look good and feel great on your big day.

Share Your Big Day

When you choose to get married abroad there are likely to be some family and friends left behind at home. Modern technology means that you can share video footage and photos instantly online, so your loved ones can see the action live as it happens.

Have Time Alone

If you have invited guests to your destination wedding, make sure that you set aside time alone just the two of you. One popular solution is to split from the wedding party the day after the wedding for the honeymoon period, perhaps heading off on the second leg of a twin centre holiday or to a nearby resort.

Getting married abroad can be the magical experience that you imagined it to be, with a fraction of the planning and hassle of a UK wedding. Book your dream destination wedding now and get married the easy way!
