Destination Weddings

Dreaming of the perfect wedding with your ceremony on the beach overlooking the Caribbean - bliss! Many of us would love to be whisked away with a small group of our family and friends to our favourite destination - but perhaps think this could never be possible. In fact, more often than none this is a less expensive option, however those of us which have large families may find it hard not having our nearest and dearest around us on our special day. So, how about a compromise? Those that can make your destination wedding will be there,and everyone else can join in when you return home!

Starting with your wedding gown - in the heat of the Mediterranean sun you want this to be as lightweight as possible. A few suppliers, in particular Mori Lee, have their own range of Voyage / Destination dresses. Many of these are softer and lighter materials such as chiffon and silk taffeta, minus the underskirt of course! Just because you are flying abroad, this does not mean you have to miss out on the gown of your dreams - just take a look at this small selection of gown by Madeline Gardner of Mori Lee.

Your wedding flowers - go colourful! many of these wedding destinations have wonderful colourful flowers in bloom all year round. The hotel will have their preferred suppliers and may even include this within their wedding packages!

Your wedding cake is something you will not want to go overboard with a small wedding party abroad. How about cupcakes to mark this special day which can act as a second dessert after your wedding meal? With the average three tier wedding cake being able to feed 100 + persons, make sure this is something not missed at your reception back home.

Your honeymoon - After your ceremony relax and enjoy your surroundings and what your hotel has to offer on your fabulous honeymoon. Enjoy being treated as royalty for a few days! remember though that many countries require you to be in the country at least 3/4 days prior to your wedding day.

Popular wedding destination weddings include Dominican Republic, Cuba, Mexico, South of France, Italy and Cyprus.
