Planning a wedding is stressful; everyone knows that, regardless of whether you are married, getting married or not married. But when the occasion arises and it’s time to organize a wedding, what many people don’t take advantage of is the idea of getting married abroad. At first glance, it sounds like it could be even more stressful than the idea of getting married at a local venue near your home. But most people don’t realize that, in some respect, it could work out to be cheaper and less stressful than you think. There are also several benefits which can come out of organizing a wedding in another country.
The world is your oyster
You have the options of choosing to hold a wedding anywhere around the world with unique themes. From a beach wedding on the Caribbean island to the cosmopolitan city of Manhattan, from an Indian wedding or a Thai wedding. On the one hand, it makes it even more difficult to decide where and the theme. But on the other hand, you are spoiled for choices.
Most people like to have a traditional wedding in their home country. But holding your wedding in another country is unique, exciting and more exotic than most people’s weddings. If you imagined how the celebrities must feel when they get married on the beach, you can experience that yourself.
Invite fewer guests
It may be more difficult for guests to attend a wedding abroad, but the guests that are invited are normally those who are very close to the bride and groom. Those are the people who would do anything to attend your wedding. You are less likely to see any extended relatives you don’t see often or a business associate who you are not that attached to, which means you will only need to entertain and feed a few number of guests.
Holiday and wedding for the guests
For those who are invited to a wedding in another country, they can kill two birds with one stone by going on a holiday and attend the wedding at the same time. It’s such a great way to save money and enjoy the wedding at the same time.
Honeymoon immediately after the wedding
Since you are already on an exotic location, the couple can get started on the honeymoon immediately after the ceremony. And even if they want to go somewhere else, chances are that they have a number of locations to choose nearby where they can honeymoon.
The wedding planner
Although you can organize the wedding yourself, there are a number of wedding consultants who specializes on destination weddings and can sort out the paperwork involved. It is difficult for the bride and groom to visit the destination and understand the country’s legal requirement, but the wedding planner can do it all for you.
