Wedding, Love, Overseas Wedding, Pros & Cons

The sound of having your dream wedding on an edge of a cliff while the sun sets in Santorini, or on a beach in tropical Fiji, is romantic and magical. It is never an easy decision choosing to get married abroad. Before you and your partner make this choice, it is important to take into account the pros and cons.


Cost Less
The average cost of an a wedding is $30,00 once food, drinks, flowers and outfits are all taken into account. It is quite a costly event. Deciding to get married overseas may cost far less, especially if you decide on a destination like Bali or Thailand where the Australian dollar can get you a long way.

Small & Intimate
Many guests may find it difficult to travel overseas for the wedding due to the cost of their airfares and accommodation. This will mean your wedding will be small and intimate. Many couples would rather an intimate event and this could be the best way to get this.

Excuse For A Holiday
Guests that attend the wedding overseas will also get a great holiday out of it too. Who would pass the opportunity to jet set the world?!

A Wedding To Remember
What a way to marry the person you love. You will have a unique experience that not many people have.

Santorini, Greece is a very popular destination for weddings. It will be a wedding to remember with its breathtaking views.


Too Costly For Guests
You will find that many guests will not be able to share this special day due to the cost of airfares and accommodation, especially if they have a family. This may mean that the people you want there may not come. The best way to avoid this is to give at least 24 months notice so people can start saving.

Fewer Gifts
If guests need to pay their own way, you may find that they will only give small gifts or nothing at all.

Difficult To Organise
When you are planning a wedding on the other side of the world, it is not easy to call whenever you like. There will not only be a time difference but there could also be a language barrier.

Not Legally Binding
Not all cities will allow you to have a legally binding marriage ceremony. Before you choose your destination, ensure that your marriage will be legal.

These are just a few pros and cons of an overseas wedding. Sit down with your partner and write your own list of pros and cons. This will help you make your final decision. At the end of the day it should be choice made by you and your partner. Do what makes you happy as it s your special day.
