Getting married always requires a lot of planning and preparation, regardless of whether your big day will be hosted in a registry office, English country manor, a French chateaux or on a Jamaican beach. Many people consider getting married abroad as perhaps an easier option; guaranteed weather, pack a dress and suit, invite whoever fancies a holiday and off you go. We've been chatting to flight comparison website jetcost.co.uk about some of the wedding essentials you need to remember for your destination wedding.
The city of Marrakech is the number one honeymoon destination for Moroccans, and a favourite bolt-hole for French dignitaries and celebrities.
After a couple of nights at The Capaldi, 40 minutes from the Marrakech, we were ready to spend a night in the very heart of this busy city.
The Medina is the ancient centre of the city, a maze of tiny alleyways and lanes between souks (markets), riads (small hotels) and intricately carved historical sites. No building can be taller than the main Mosque so from any of the rooftop terraces there seems a sense of uniformity above the chaos below. The lanes are too narrow for cars so we finished our journey to the Riad Capaldi with our luggage in a bicycle barrow.
Overseas and destination weddings are becoming increasingly popular. And it is no surprise when the average cost of a UK wedding is now £20,000 while it’s only £6,585 for a ceremony abroad. With the attraction of sunshine, good food and cheap bubbly, its hard to find reasons why not to go abroad to tie the knot! Even celebrities are going for the overseas option, for example the 'Brangelina' wedding which is on the horizon, is rumored to be taking place in a secretive part of France. Short Haul flights are becoming cheaper by the day and therefore your friends will find it easier and easier to come and enjoy your wedding abroad with you. If however, a more exotic location is for you, there are super cheap deals to Cuba, Thailand and Sri Lanka. So why not go abroad, before everybody realises it is the best thing to do and you can say you set a trend?
