The path to your wedding might feel like an A-list affair when you decide to have it abroad. After all, saying ‘I do’ in a foreign land is something most associated with the rich and famous (with John Lennon and Yoko Ono being just one of the many couples who tied the knot in Gibraltar). The truth, however, is that your wedding abroad can still be a rather simple affair should you want it to be. In fact, this is arguably easier to accomplish than if you were getting married in your home country! Let’s look at three ways you can still have a simple wedding even when you’re getting married in Gibraltar.
Forgo the dress
Whether you don’t want to spend a fortune on an outfit you’ll only wear once or high fashion just isn’t something you’re interested in, there’s no better opportunity to forgo the dress than when you’re getting married in Gibraltar. The local culture tends to promote wearing more simple and summery items, so you won’t look out of place if you wear something less outlandish and more practical.
Take it easy
It doesn’t take long to adjust to the more relaxed pace of life in Gibraltar. While it’s an extremely vibrant hotspot, people tend to take their time and enjoy what they’re doing rather than rushing around. This, of course, tends to be because of the beautiful weather that’s often commonplace. This relaxed attitude should mean you’re able to choose simple components to your day (food, flowers etc.) without second-guessing yourself.
Invite fewer people
The guest list often builds up at a faster rate than most brides and grooms care for when getting hitched on home shores. However, when you’re getting married overseas, it becomes easier and more practical to cut names and keep things intimate. As well as there being fewer people to impress, you can also stop things from spiralling into a grand affair that slowly starts to look like the type of wedding you never wanted to have.
