Now that travel restrictions are starting to ease, many couples are keen to make up for lost time and tie the knot as quickly as possible. But with many wedding venues booked up until 2024, the prospect of pulling together a venue and vendors might seem quite overwhelming. So, what is the alternative?
Grabbing your passports and heading overseas for a less conventional wedding is one option that seems tempting to couples that have been UK-bound for the past few years. It’s incredibly tempting to combine wedding celebrations with a long-overdue holiday. Here are just some of the things you’ll need to think about if you’re planning a destination wedding after Covid-19.
If you’re getting itchy feet and thinking about tying the knot overseas, there are a few things you should consider first. For starters, you need to understand the rules and regulations in your chosen destination. Hiring a local elopement company can help you to simplify the process and make sure the final ceremony is legal and above board. A company like Good Look Wedding can help if you’re planning a ceremony in the Dominican Republic, Russia or Macedonia.
Next, you’ll need to arrange travel. Working with a travel agent can help you to make sure everything runs smoothly, and you’ll have the added reassurance of extra support if any of the travel restrictions change in the meantime.
And finally, you should also check that your passports have sufficient validity. It may have been a while since you last left the country, and your passport could have expired in the meantime. Make sure you aren’t caught out at the airport and check your passport validity before you travel. Changes to European travel rules mean that you will now need at least 6 months validity left on your passport to be admitted into the country.
