Weddings Abroad & Luxury Wedding Packages
Everyone knows that planning a wedding is high on the list of stress-inducing activities - controlling parents, warring relatives, spiralling costs, unreliable suppliers, and, not least, having to make contingency plans for bad weather. The average UK wedding now costs around £20,000, so it's not surprising that increasing numbers of couples are now opting for weddings abroad. Tying the knot in the sunshine can not only eliminate many of the stress factors but can usually work out cheaper as well.
It may seem surprising that it usually costs less to marry abroad, but there are a wide range of luxury wedding venues in beautiful destinations like Sri Lanka and the Caribbean that offer complete packages.
Here at Luxury Holidays, we provide a range of flight and destination packages to make planning weddings abroad as stress-free and enjoyable as possible, so that all you have to worry about is having a fantastic time and creating beautiful memories with your spouse-to-be, friends and family.
Why Look At Weddings Abroad?
Apart from the good weather and the good value, there are other reasons why many couples choose to get married overseas. You can enjoy a much more intimate wedding, as only family and close friends are likely to make the journey -- you can avoid having to invite distant relatives whom you hardly know, or work colleagues and business associates you don't really want, without fear of giving offence. The atmosphere, with just your special people there, will be much more congenial, relaxed and informal.
For the traditional UK wedding, it often seems as if, after months or even years of planning, organising and anticipation, it's all over in just one day. For anyone that has ever attended a wedding before, you’ll know first-hand that day passes in such a whirl that you don't even remember it. Abroad, it's usually much more relaxed, and you have several days to enjoy your big occasion.

One of the top destination choices for weddings abroad is Sri Lanka, largely because you can get five-star luxury, plus a stunning and unique wedding, for incredibly good value.
For a barefoot-in-the sand wedding, Sri Lanka has more than 1,500 kilometres of some of the world's most beautiful and unspoilt beaches to choose from. But there is an abundance of other possibilities -- tropical jungles, lakes, splendid temples, National Parks with leopard and elephant as witnesses, or 5,000 feet high amidst breath-taking tea plantations.
Mauritius, also in the Indian Ocean, is another extremely popular choice, and has regularly ranked among the world's top wedding destinations. In fact, it has become known as the Island of Weddings, because of the delight the Mauritians take in making your wedding special. You can choose absolutely any spot you like in this spectacularly beautiful island -- a beach, a tropical garden, up a mountain, on a private island, or on board a catamaran, and the Registrar will meet you there.
• Caribbean Weddings Abroad
With so many paradise islands just made for romance. Enchanting St Lucia, styled the romantic capital of the Caribbean, offers a combination of luxuriant mountain backdrops and exuberant Creole culture that makes it one of the Caribbean's top choice for weddings.
The gorgeous islands of the Bahamas provide the ultimate setting for a fairy-tale wedding, making this destination one of our most popular when it comes to luxury wedding packages.
