It’s a simple question but not always an easy one to answer…sorry!
In my quest for a “guideline” answer to this question, independent Travel Experts Holidaysplease very kindly came to my rescue. They put together a list of wedding abroad prices for some of the more popular wedding abroad destinations.
The table below shows what the 2017 ceremony prices start from. I have put further information on what is included in these wedding package costs at the end of the table.
