Next year, I’ll be one of the 25% of brides (or there abouts) who will be having a destination wedding overseas. Now, while a destination wedding isn’t just about exotic beaches. I’ll be living out my wedding dream on one of Jamaica’s quietest bits of sand. Also, I’ve heard of other brides-to-be getting married in Tuscan villages, European cities and the bright lights of New York. I have my fingers crossed for the quiet bit for Jamaica.
In addition, more and more brides and grooms are swapping the big white English wedding for a destination wedding. And when the average cost of a UK wedding falls just under £25,000. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise. You can bag a wedding package abroad for a couple of grand. Now, if you reduce the guest list down to closest family and friends you can save a huge chunk of money on your big day. Or if you’re brave enough, just elope, the two of you!
