If you are planning to get married in the not too distant future, one thing that may have crossed your mind, is whether to get married abroad or not. Of course, it’s personal choice, but for me, tying the knot in the Caribbean was the best decision I could have made. As well as being cost effective, with an instant honeymoon included, the weather was perfect, and all the stress of planning was taken away. I was snorkelling up until two hours before my wedding!
There are plenty of countries that you can get married in, and some where you are not allowed, so it’s important to have the correct information before the planning begins. Often there is a minimum number of days that you need to spend in resort before you can get married, which varies from country to country.
There are various wedding options you can choose from, including flowers, wedding cake, photography, DVD’s and much more. There will often be a choice for your wedding location, between on the beach, in the hotel grounds or in a chapel. There will also be a wedding coordinator on hand to help with the arrangements when you are there.
One important thing to consider when you are planning a destination for a wedding or honeymoon abroad, is the weather. The time of year you are getting married will determine where the best places are to go to avoid the chance of hurricanes or the rainy season. Here are some honeymoon destinations by month, when it is generally a good time to travel.
