What some couples really want is to have a very intimate wedding far away from home and what better way to achieve this than getting hitched beyond borders. Overseas weddings are very popular for many reasons, chief of which is the fact that they actually come off cheaper than the cliche’ city wedding where almost everyone is invited. Another reason is when either the bride or groom has family overseas.
Planning Overseas Weddings
One of the best things about overseas weddings is that you will not have to lift a finger to prepare for the event. All you need is to hire a wedding planner/coordinator who specializes in overseas nuptials and you are all set.
The planner you will hire should be able to arrange everything for you. The list of things that need to be prepared should include all of the following:
- Hotel accommodations
- Airline tickets
- guest list (if you are taking some friends and family with you)
- Attire for the event (bridal gown and tux for the groom, although you can always go informal when getting married abroad)
- Marriage license (there are different laws on marriage applicable)
- Wedding decor
- Wedding favors
- Menu for the reception
All these things have to be covered so that all you have to do is show up and enjoy.
Budget Overseas Weddings
While it is highly advised that you hire a coordinator for an overseas wedding, this is not necessary have to be the case all the time. It is also very possible to have an overseas wedding which you will put together by yourself with professional help whatsoever.
One of the first things you have to arrange for is the location. If you are not taking any guests with you, this should be very easy as you just need to pick a locale and make the reservations online. There are sweet deals that you can score off the internet which is a big plus is you are looking to save some money.
There are hotel accommodations-airfare combos that you will encounter online when you browse through travel agency websites so you will not no trouble finding a nice place to stay at all.
Summer is always the best season for overseas weddings because of the fine weather. However, you can also expect that hotels and beaches, especially those that are considered hot spots, will be crawling with people. Also, the rates on airfare and hotel accommodations are significantly higher than if you travel in winter or spring.
