If luxurious beaches, winter wonderlands, and amazing local foods are more your things than a wedding at your local church, then you may wish to get married abroad. Whether you like hot beaches, beautiful old churches or you’re dreaming of a white wedding, there are many destinations around the world that can cater for your needs, and it doesn’t need to break the bank!
Read on for three of the most beautiful destinations to get married in around the globe.
For couples who want to stay relatively close to home, Italy is a beautiful destination for a wedding without a long haul flight, and after all, Italy is known for its romantic landscapes, with Venice being called the city of love. If you love Italian cuisine and have an eye for art, Venice is perfect.
It harbours many quaint restaurants along the canals and is home to many pieces of Renaissance art. If you wish to get married in a quiet city, Venice is perfect as there are no cars or roads; the only way to get about is boats and gondolas. As a bride, you can guarantee you will be the first of your friends to arrive at church via gondola. Whether you are a large or small group, Venice can house both, with small, beautiful B&B’s and grand hotels that cater for wedding banquets. With Italy also home to cities such as Rome, you are never far away from discovering other beautiful cities.
If a beach wedding is something you desire and you crave the sun, then this Greek island is a perfect wedding destination for you. If you have seen Mamma Mia, you will have an idea of how a Greek wedding can look, with beautiful walks to small churches overlooking the coast. If this is what you dream of then Mykonos can give you exactly that. Blue Villas plan weddings in Mykonos, organising the wedding of your dreams down to the very last detail. If you want a private, close-knit wedding with just your family and friends present, this destination with a private villa and your own personal villa chef, can give you the wedding of your dreams with the people you hold closest.
If you prefer snow to sand, then a winter wedding may suit you. If you’d love to get married in a one of a kind place, saying your “I do’s” under the Northern Lights, in the warmth of your glass tipi whilst you dance the night away looking out into a snowy landscape, then Finland is a spectacular destination.
Whether you wish to tie the knot in a chapel made of snow or a beautiful log chapel in the forest, the Igloo Village can provide the winter wedding of your dreams. As a couple, you can even arrive at your wedding destination in a sleigh, drawn by either horse or reindeer! This is a great destination for a Christmas wedding too.
Whether you dream of getting married surrounded by snow, beaches, or canals, these three places all offer a unique way for you to spend the most special day of your life with the one you love and have memories and photographs to last a lifetime. No matter what religion you are, there are weddings catered to your needs and beliefs. The best thing is you don’t have to travel to your honeymoon destination afterward, as each destination offers many unique honeymoon places and activities, meaning you can escape your guests for a few hours or a few days (whichever you prefer!).
