Top 8 Things To Consider When Planning A Wedding In Scotland

Popular Wedding Destinations In The World

COVID restrictions have been drawn back and international travel is a possibility again. If you are planning on getting married, then why don’t you consider doing so in another country? Having your wedding in another country can make it a lot more memorable, for you and your guests. It can also make it a lot more special. Some couples marry abroad, and then return to their marriage destination each year, as part of their anniversary celebrations. If you are going to marry abroad, then you need to select the perfect destination.

This article will tell you about the world’s most popular wedding destinations:

Scotland

Scotland isn’t the first place that you might think of as being a popular wedding destination, but on closer inspection, it’s not hard to see why it is. Scotland’s rolling hills, foggy weather, and ancient castles are very alluring. It’s not hard to find all-inclusive small wedding packages in Scotland, although if you want larger gatherings, those are of course possible too. Travelling to (and staying in) Scotland can be very affordable, so you won’t have to worry about extortionately priced flights and hotel rooms. After your wedding, you could head north to Iceland, or south to England, for your honeymoon.

Finland

Finland is another very popular wedding destination. The primary reason that Finland is so popular, is because it is an extremely beautiful nation with fantastic woodlands and public spaces. The nation isn’t short on churches or religious halls if you want a religious ceremony. If you are travelling from elsewhere in Europe, then it is also extremely easy and cheap to get to. Finland is a very popular tourist destination, which means that it can be expensive once you are there to find accommodation, however. With this in mind, make sure that you book everything in advance.

Hawaii

Hawaii is one of the world’s most popular wedding destinations and has been for a very long time. It is most popular among American nationals, because it is very easy to get to, and is an American state. Hawaii is made up of several islands, each with its own differing climates, fauna, and flora. If you are going to visit, then select the island that’s perfect for you. In addition to researching islands, you also need to plan out when you are going to go carefully so that you can afford any storms or bad weather.

Jamaica

Jamaica, like Hawaii, is one of the world’s most popular wedding destinations, because of its beautiful weather, hospitable locals, and fantastic wildlife. If you are going to go to Jamaica for your wedding, then it’s a good idea to hold your wedding on the beach– Jamaica’s beaches (besides its food) are what the nation is known best for. If you are visiting Jamaica for the first time, then it’s a good idea to hold your reception and ceremony inside a resort. It’s not a good idea to venture out of the resort if you haven’t got a guide or any experience there, because it can be very dangerous in places. Jamaica is also experiencing extremely high levels of COVID cases, at the moment.

India

India is a magical country, with a broad range of landscapes, from Rajasthan’s expansive deserts to the foothills of the Himalayas. India can be a challenging place to get to, even if you are located in a country nearby. This is because flights can be very expensive; India is a very popular tourist destination. If you are going to hold your wedding there, then plan it out meticulously, including how guests and relatives are going to travel there. You also need to carefully think about food and accommodation. India’s cities can be very busy, which isn’t great for quiet wedding receptions. If you want a quiet wedding, then you should select a venue that’s out in the mountains or in a more rural area.  

Egypt

Egypt is a popular wedding destination, although it’s not as popular today as it once was. If you are going to visit Egypt, then make sure that you book your venue long in advance, because venues are often booked out by locals. Cairo is by far Egypt’s most famous and popular city. It’s also a great place to get married. You may be able to book a venue that is overlooked by the Pyramids of Giza, although don’t expect this to be cheap. You could consider having a traditional Egyptian wedding, which will be a lot of fun for your loved ones.

Morocco

Morocco is located in North Africa. It is without a doubt one of the world’s most popular holiday and vacation destinations. It became extremely popular among Westerns during the 1950s, when Tangier, the nation’s northernmost city, became a frequent haunt of artists, musicians, and writers. Since then, Morocco has remained culturally relevant. Morocco is a great place to get married, because it is very safe, and the people are incredibly welcoming. If you want a wedding that’s somewhat unusual, then why not pay Berbers to take you out into the desert, and hold a wedding ceremony in the Sahara?

Ireland

Ireland, like Scotland, has lots of ancient castles and very foggy weather! It’s not as good as Scotland in terms of weddings but is still worth some consideration. Ireland is very easy to reach from England, you can take a ferry across from Manchester. Remember: Ireland is divided into the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The latter is a part of the United Kingdom. The former, the EU. If you want to access the former and are an EU citizen, you won’t need a visitor.

Italy

Finally, we arrive at Italy, Europe’s most romantic nation. Italy has myriad places for you to get married, from sleepy rural churches to halls in the shadow of the Vatican. Italy is very expensive to travel to, around, and have a wedding in, however. If you are going to go there, then you need to factor the cost in. You may also want to rent an Airbnb for your guests because hotels can be very expensive.

If your wedding is coming up, then you need to find the perfect venue. If you don’t then the way that you experience your wedding could be impacted. Remember to factor in travel when you are making a decision about where to hold your wedding.
