Practical guide for wedding abroad.
If your dream is to have a wedding abroad and get married in the country you love the most, then you are in the right place.
In this blog post we will discuss the 5 things to consider before deciding where to get married away from home.
If you’re ready, let’s get going, but first I suggest you close your eyes and visualise exactly where you want to get married and keep them in mind while reading this blog post.
Why choose a wedding abroad.
A wedding abroad is incredibly romantic, adventurous and exciting.
I know what you are thinking now “yes but it is also difficult to organise, from afar everything gets complicated“.
What I can tell you, is that a wedding in general is complex to organize, which is why so many professionals have sprung up to support brides along the way.
A wedding abroad just needs the right suppliers, and everything will be fine .
Here are 5 things you need to consider for a wedding abroad. For all other questions write to me –
Choosing the right location for a wedding abroad.
I always say it, the choice of wedding venue is very important because it determines the whole organisation.
It must necessarily be:
- suited to your needs, and those of your guests;
- fit perfectly with the mood of the wedding.
Hire a local wedding planner.
Given by a wedding planner who specialises in destination weddings, this may sound like a no-brainer, but it really is advice you should consider.
You need someone to represent you in a faraway country, someone to be your eyes and voice where you cannot be.
Then the knowledge of the territory and suppliers that a local wedding planner has can never be guaranteed by an agency from another country.
Book in time and send invitations as early as possible
For a wedding abroad, it is always good to book the wedding venue and send the save-the-dates to the guests.
They need to organzse themselves well, buy plane tickets, organize work….so give them time to plan the departure for your wedding with peace of mind.
Use pinterest with suppliers
Pintererst is the social of inspiration, create inspirational pinboards of things you’d like to have at your wedding.
Show the mood you want to suppliers by sharing your inspirations; everything will be easier.
I also use Pinterest with our brides, to understand their inspiration and to inspire them with my own work.

Consider additional costs for your foreign wedding
Please consider taking care of 10% of your budget for additional costs.
There are costs that many brides and grooms do not consider, especially if they organise the wedding themselves.
Therefore, it is good to keep some budget for these expenses that may arise during the planning.
Precisely because I know how important choosing a wedding venue is, I decided to make a free catalogue of the most beautiful and suitable venues for destination weddings available to the brides who read my blog.
