Planning a wedding is no small feat, you have to keep the bride, groom, and their respective families happy as well as keeping the availability of friends and family in mind. All the hassle will be worth it when you finally get to commit to your spouse for the rest of your life. Maybe you’ve been searching for a wedding venue for quite some time and found nothing, or perhaps you’ve just began the task of finding the perfect place. Either way, it could be a good time to consider the benefits of having a destination wedding in a stunning location somewhere exotic:

1. Your Photos Will Be Amazing
If you’re from a place where it’s often raining with bleak weather, you may not be impressed with your wedding photos. While I believe all countries have something beautiful to offer, perhaps there’s a special location somewhere in the world that really calls to you. A population option for an overseas wedding is a destination wedding in Greece. Can you imagine how stunning the photos would be for a Santorini wedding? The white buildings contrasted by the ocean blue roofs, the photos would be something you could treasure forever.

2. You Can Have a Holiday With Your Family
It’s a great way to get the family away together for a special holiday. You can spend a few days, or a few weeks, traveling around with special friends and family members before and after your big day. This allows different friends and family members to mingle a little more, creating a more personal environment at your wedding.

3. You Can Often Get a Better Wedding for a Better Price
Depending on where you are from, you may be surprised by how expensive weddings costs. It’s not unheard of to spend 6-12 months salary on the wedding, which is a lot of money if you really think about it. Deciding to get married overseas, somewhere with a lower cost for weddings, can be an excellent way to save money while still having the wedding of your dreams.

4. Logistically It Can Be Better
If your family is split between two very locations, like England and South Africa, Greece could be a good middle ground for both sides of the family. Often it’s hard to choose where to have the wedding if the bride and groom are from different countries, so a destination wedding is the perfect way to not offend anyone! Plus you can also can choose to have the wedding somewhere where the weather is going to be better, if sunshine is as important to you as it is to me.

Whatever you decide for your wedding, remember it’s important to keep yourself and your partner happy. After all, it’s your special day. If your dream is to have a Santorini wedding, then go for it. These are the memories you’ll treasure for the rest of your life, so be sure to do it exactly how you wish.
