Cupid’s Advice: 

For some people their ideal wedding location is in their backyard. But for a few, their dreams lie beyond their country’s borders. International weddings have become increasingly popular and we’ve discovered the reasons why.

1. You are basically creating your own fairytale: This is your love story, so therefore, it’s only right if you get to pick the setting. Places such as Spain, Greece, and Italy are growing in popularity for destination weddings. The exotic feel about being somewhere new brings about a whole new essence of romance. This new place becomes yours and your partner’s forever. You will never think of the destination the same way again, for this sacred place has a whole new meaning.

2. You get to choose your guests: International flights are expensive, therefore you have to be extremely selective when it comes to picking out who gets the plane tickets. This can also allow you to get the intimate feel that you may be searching for. Your friends and family are more likely to understand you not being able to drop thousands on numerous international flights than not receiving an invite to your local church ceremony. Those who are invited to experience this day with you will also recognize how much they mean to you, making your wedding even more wonderful.

A lot of couples are starting to hop on the international wedding train and begin their world tours for their honeymoon. This is also a good way to get a little world travel under your belt before you buckle down and start making a family. It’s just good planning, really.
