Most of us start dreaming of our wedding day from a very young age. With the average wedding in the UK now costing as much as £18,000, it is becoming increasingly popular to say “I do” abroad.
What could be better – no dried up egg sandwiches on the buffet or Auntie Ethel reminiscing about her wedding that happened over 70 years ago? And more importantly not having to worry about the weather. With so much choice it can be difficult to know where to start.
Here are our top wedding destinations.

Why – With Italy only around a 2.5 hour flight from the UK it is understandably becoming a hot spot for weddings and an ideal choice for wedding guests with young children. Add to the mix the fabulous Italian cuisine and the amazing scenery it is understandably topping the hit lists for many brides. From castles to hotels and beachside villas, Italy really is a great choice.
