More Britons Go Abroad To Get Married

If you’re planning on getting married overseas this year you’re not alone.

According to new research by Mintel, almost 1/3 more UK couples chose to get married abroad in 2010 than 2005. Both cheaper overseas travel and a higher cost for getting married in Britain are contributing factors for the 27% rise. While Britons search for something different or better weather, getting married outside the boarders of Britain has its downsides: time and money spent on travel might not be welcomed by potential guests, so ensure that the ones that matter are happy to join you before booking the venue!

Where would you most like to get married then: an Italian castle that overlooks the rolling hills of Tuscany; a Vegas ceremony with you, your man and Elvis; or close to where you live?
