A simple but essential question!
Drum roll…and the answer is:
There are three main ways to organise a wedding abroad.
Each option has its advantages and disadvantages, so I suggest taking time to read each of the different ways to discover which one you feel would be best suited to you.
The Three Ways to Organise a Wedding Abroad are:
- Choose a wedding package offered by a Tour Operator
- Use a wedding planner who specialises in organising weddings abroad
- Plan it yourself. Plan & organise your own wedding abroad
When reading each different option think about why you are having your wedding abroad and the type and style of wedding you would like to have. Think about what is important to you, for example are you interested in saving money, being stress free or being in control and hands on?
Try and also break things down a little further and understand what you would like from an individual supplier, for example are you interested in all inclusive wedding packages abroad or would you like a Tour Operator to only organise the celebration side of your wedding and not your accommodation.
You will find each option caters to subtly different needs and one, or even a combination of the options above, may prove the most suitable choice.
Once you have decided which route to go down to organise your wedding abroad, take the time to investigate a number of Tour Operators, wedding planners or wedding suppliers. Make sure you are 100% confident you have chosen the right people to work with you. It is your wedding day and you shouldn’t settle for 2nd best!
