Destination Weddings: 6 Reasons to look No Further Than Europe

As the BREXIT Saga continues, meanwhile it’s Europe Day! Why not plan the Klingon toasts, Latin vows, real confetti, and Kevin Hart officiation in a stunning European destination? Here are my top reasons why you should get married in Europe:

1. For the Brits

Having grown up in Tenerife flying back and forth, I was born to travel.  I’m a lover of beautiful sandy beaches and the scorching heat. Having a destination wedding in Europe is a max 4-hour flight, guests can easily get to the destination, make a holiday out of it for a much more reasonable cost.

2. Venue Theme

What is your style?  What means the most to you both?  What is a wedding day without great views that will make those photo shoots all the more picturesque? Spoil your European travel and wedding ceremony with an extensive variety of historical landmarks and natural wonders Europe is blessed with. With a variety of remarkable places tailored beautifully for weddings, Europe makes the perfect destination for an intimate wedding. Charming hotels on the lake, medieval villas with a great view of century-old castles imbued with historical elements and lush green gardens.  Countless vineyards to offer where you can get married and stumble into a wine cellar.

3. Great European Destinations

Tuscany and Spain are famous for their boutique style villas, their amazing hospitality and incredible scenery. There are several villas, farmhouses, and even hamlet properties which are available to wedding planners. You can choose to get married on a small or large estate, depending on your taste and number of guests.

Fairy tale wedding?  Scotland, Portugal & Tuscany are the top 3 places to get married in a dreamy castle. Nothing says fairytale better than getting married in a castle that holds the memories of royalty, generations before you, pledging their love to each other. Best part is, fairy tale weddings are not farfetched. There are castles available for rent such as the Borthwick Castle in Scotland, Le Torri du Bagnara in Italy, and the (truly) Magnificent Castle near Glasgow.3

 

Santorini. I’m sure you have all seen the Instagram photos of influencers out there.  Dramatic views, stunning sunsets and cute white buildings. Imagine pastel colours offsetting the sea in your wedding photos. Ahhhh! For more information on getting married in Santorini, contact Radhika And You.

Beach wedding? You can get a laidback and fairy tale wedding in one package from a beach wedding. It’s the perfect setting for your guests to get sand between their toes, eat unconventional wedding dishes, and have a truly enjoyable time. All with the beautiful sunrise or sunset as a backdrop. Beach weddings are perfect, if you’re looking for an intimate setting where you can also have fun with your guests. There are beautiful beach venues scattered around Greece and Italy, where the sun shines bright most of the year.

I’ll stop here as you can tell where this is going.  Each country owns its own theme, ambience and style.  What is there not to like?

 

4. Costs

Depending on which country you get married in, the flights, accommodation and wedding venue booking may be a lot cheaper.

5. Bonding time!

You will create incredible memories from getting married abroad! The bride and groom can actually spend time with their guests.  The Wedding is intimate and rich which couples really appreciate.  No one is worried about driving back, all the guests are stuck in one place, so they cannot run away from you!

6. Culture & Food

Anything that concerns culture, Europe always tops the list. After all, the region is home to loads of artists and the place where so many a worthy innovation find rooting. Every country in the continent has its own set of charm and significant contribution to history. For instance, you will never find a place more alluring than France or as outgoing as Mykonos. Everywhere in Europe, you are sure to find some narrative that will immerse you in the local culture, numerous spots that will make sure you never run out of memories on your wedding day. Also, in places like Italy or France, you also get the best selection of wine!

 

Having your destination wedding in Europe is an all-around fantastic idea. All you need do is pick a date, save a venue and have the wedding of your life. Happy Europe Day!
