WHERE TO START
Hire an expert! A great wedding planner will help you in your search for local vendors, language barriers, legal matters and any cultural barriers. I’ve seen so many incredible real weddings abroad and they were all created at the hands of an amazing planner.

LOGISTICS
Consider your guests! Are you having an intimate wedding or inviting 400 of your nearest and dearest? Some may not be able to get away for a extended weekend abroad or be able to afford the excursion.

HIDDEN COSTS
Traveling is expensive especially if you need to cover your favorite photographers airfare and accommodation.

LEGAL MATTERS
The goal is to be legally wed right? Get your legal documents in place well in advance according to the country you plan on tying the knot in. Another option? Get legally married in your own country and have a blessing ceremony at your destination in front of your loved ones.
