Did you now that the average cost of a wedding in the UK is between £25-30,000? It comes to no surprise then, why so many more people are choosing to get married abroad. In comparison to the UK, the average cost of getting married abroad can be up to a whopping £14,000 cheaper. Saving that amount of money, on top of spending a week away with your closest friends and family in the sun, sand and sea is more than enough reason for any couple to consider ditching Britain and taking their big day overseas. So, the questions that come next are usually how much does getting married abroad cost and how do you pay for it? Let’s take a look.
The cost of getting married abroad
We obviously can’t give you a definitive answer to how much your wedding will cost if you choose to wed overseas. This will all come down to the destination you choose, how big and extravagant you’re willing to go and of course, the exchange rate. With foreign exchange rates constantly fluctuating, the costs involved with your wedding are going to change. From venue hire, wedding planner fees and even flights, all of these wedding essentials are likely to be more or less expensive depending on worldwide markets. But there’s no need to worry, this is where we can step in and lend a helping hand with our foreign exchange expertise.
