Getting married is one of the most important events in your life. What better way to make sure it’s a magical experience than by choosing to get hitched against a backdrop of gorgeous sunshine, crystal clear waters and amazing scenery? It also gives your family and friends the perfect excuse for a week off work!
With so many great value wedding holidays to sun-drenched destinations on offer these days, you can enjoy a summer wedding any day of the year! Here are some inspiring ideas to help get you started:
The exquisite architecture and landscape of the Greek Islands can provide a number of stunning wedding venues. From a secret sea cave in Kefalonia, to the Achillion Palace in Corfu, you’re bound to find something that fits the bill.
The breath-taking quality of the natural light is guaranteed to make for stunning wedding photos, and there’s also a huge range of places to stay so guests can find accommodation to best suit their budget.
Italy has to be one of the most romantic wedding locations in the world. The stunning beaches of Sicily, the dramatic cliff-tops of Sorrento, or the twinkling lights of Naples create the perfect venue to enjoy fabulous Italian food and wine. There’s so much to do that you may decide to stay there for your honeymoon!
Turkey’s become one of the trendiest places to have a wedding in recent years. The rich blend of Eastern and Western culture, fascinating coastline and magnificent mountains all give the country a unique appeal. Antalya has proved to be one of the most popular destinations for venues. From a sunset ceremony in a rustic setting to a chic boutique hotel, there’s plenty to choose from. It’s also one of the sunniest regions in Turkey. However, the pine forests and turquoise lagoons of the Dalaman Coast certainly give Antalya a run for its money.
For those who want to venture a little further afield, the cobbled streets and old colonial cities of Mexico make for a magical setting for any wedding. Cancun has plenty of stunning seaside venues overlooking its powdery white sands and turquoise waters. One big bonus of Cancun is that it’s a really popular location for couples from the US, so they have a lot of tailor-made wedding packages organised down to the finest details.
Don’t forget to check any legal requirements of a location before you start setting plans in motion. And remember – always mention that you’re getting married. Airlines, hotels, bars and restaurants are usually willing to do something special for the bride and groom to be!
