The research found that one in six couples now choose to get married abroad, potentially saving up to £10,000 by choosing to marry overseas. Couples loved the guaranteed good weather and the fact that the wedding and honeymoon can be rolled into one. However, it’s not such good news for guests, who will have to fork out around £2,000 in order to join in the celebrations overseas.

The down sides

Disadvantages of tying the knot outside the UK included not being able to invite everyone the couple wanted to, due to budget constraints and having less control over the planning as it’s not as easy to visit the venue.
