How to have a wedding day to remember!

The question every couple wants the answer to, how to have the wedding day everyone will remember?

“I think it is empowering that couples are taking control of how they want to share the experience of their marriage. Couples from all backgrounds are realising they do not want to be told how to celebrate their love.”

Getting Married Abroad

Getting married abroad used to be just for the rich and famous but nowadays even those on a budget can achieve their dream sunshine wedding.

The most important thing you need to consider is the legalities. Each country will have its own rules and regulations so it is very important for you to research what is required for your chosen location.

I have been a planner in Northern Cyprus for 13 years and have planned weddings ranging from just 2 people in an old olive grove to 250 people at a 5-star hotel. The possibilities are endless and in most cases only confined to your own imagination.

Having a wedding planner might seem to be a waste of money but the reality is that a planner can and will save you money. They know the area, the best venues, and the best suppliers. They can negotiate for you.

Things to consider

I can only comment on my own country where I work but it will be the same for whatever country you choose.
