For those who are at the initial planning stages of their wedding, getting married abroad is often an important consideration. The lure of guaranteed sunshine and a paradise location is obviously appealing, but there are other pros and cons to consider when deciding whether to marry at home in the Ireland, or abroad.

The lure of guaranteed sunshine and a paradise location is obviously appealing, but there are other pros and cons to consider when deciding whether to marry at home in the Ireland, or abroad.

Firstly, as with most important decisions, for many it comes down to cost. Of course luxury wedding destinations like the Caribbean islands often also come with a luxury price-tag, but there are other ‘budget’ options where couples can enjoy similar weather and beautiful landscapes at a fraction of the cost. Cyprus, for example, is now a leading wedding destination, chosen by British couples who wish to take advantage of the island’s stunning views, all-day sunshine and luxury accommodation. Getting wed somewhere like Cyprus is not only cheaper than the likes of the Caribbean, but can also cost a fraction of Ireland weddings where the costs can often soar to over 20,000.

b2ap3_thumbnail_destination-wedding.jpgThe second biggest factor when considering getting married abroad is whether or not friends and family can afford to attend, or where perhaps grand-parents are involved, are fit and well enough to travel. If the couple has dreamt of a big wedding, then a wedding abroad may restrict the number of guests who can attend and be a reason to choose Ireland-based wedding instead.

Where it appears many guests may not be able to attend the overseas wedding, the couple may decide that a Ireland wedding suits them better. There is a way to please everyone though, and that is for the couple to hold an additional reception on their return. This means that all the guests can feel apart of the new couple’s big day without having to fret about finances or health, and it is always worth chatting with close friends and family to hear their thoughts on this arrangement.

Many couples are drawn in by the prospect of getting married overseas in a location they have romantic memories of. On the other hand, some find getting married abroad the perfect option to get away from the stresses of organising a Ireland wedding! Whatever the reason, should a couple decide to marry abroad, then they should adhere to the same rules of Ireland weddings; visiting the venue (where possible), taking out adequate wedding cover, and keeping on top of the finances. If all these are followed, then the overseas wedding could be the dream wedding they’ve always fantasised of.
