Is having a destination wedding easier than getting married at home?
Even amid some of the potential barriers or deterrents to international travel in recent years – ranging from the coronavirus to Brexit – the appeal of destination weddings, and certainly getting married in Gibraltar, has endured.
Indeed, whereas there was once a time when a destination wedding might have seemed a relatively indulgent way to tie the knot that wasn’t exactly convenient for invited guests, in today’s world, you might find that destination nuptials are actually easier and cheaper to plan than a wedding at home.
So, let’s take a closer look at some of the factors in that, which might be helpful to you if you haven’t yet decided whether to plump for a destination wedding.
Cut the costs
A typical wedding in the UK might now set you back as much as £30,000 or more, a much higher figure than was once the case. With this in mind, organising and holding a destination wedding may not cost as much as you would expect. Overseas weddings do, after all, tend to have smaller guest lists, since for many friends and extended family members, it may not be feasible to attend. That, in turn, might mean the couple having fewer people to pay for.
It also helps from a costs point of view when you choose a destination that isn’t too far away! If you and your guests are looking to travel from the UK, for instance, the flight time is less than three hours from London Heathrow Airport.
