When it comes to arranging a wedding, there are many costs involved including things like the reception, the dresses, the suit hire, the cars, flower, rings and so much more. It all adds up and these days it can run well into the thousands. Getting married takes time and planning and a big healthy budget.
Obviously you want this important day to go smoothly and to be perfect but is it really worth spending so much money? The reality is that you can have a fantastic wedding for a fraction of the price simply by heading abroad to get married instead. If you want to get married in true style then exotic locations such as Mauritius or Seychelles are ideal. These beautiful islands in the Indian Ocean are the perfect place to say your vows as they are visually stunning.
The great thing about luxury wedding holidays is that you will be able to have a wonderful few days in the sun before saying your vows and then you can have your honeymoon immediately as you will already be in the location of choice. Many top hotels in the Indian Ocean islands have their own wedding planners who will assist will all the details so you don’t even have to do a thing except turn up. And if you are taking guests with you, you will usually get a discounted rate from the hotel.
There are many reasons why places like Mauritius and Seychelles are ideal wedding destinations and the main reason is because of the spectacular scenery. Lush green forests provide a fabulous backdrop or you could choose to get married with the Indian Ocean at your back instead. Whatever you choose, you can be guaranteed that the sun will shine on you and that your photographs will look magnificent. Both Mauritius and Seychelles have some of the most amazing beaches in the world. White pristine sands and turquoise waters are perfect locations for your dream wedding.
Once you have said your vows and have celebrated with your friends and family, you can start to really enjoy your honeymoon. The top resorts have plenty to keep everyone of all ages occupied. You will no doubt have the opportunity to use the amazing spa facilities that most hotels and resorts have and it may be possible for you and your new spouse to have a double treatment together which is an amazing experience.
There are also many other activities that you can join in with such as volleyball, horse riding, jet skiing, horse riding and snorkelling. Snorkelling and scuba diving will give you the chance to see some of the most amazing underwater creatures you have ever laid eyes on. All in all, you will never get bored on a luxury wedding holiday.
Not only is there plenty to do in the resort, there is also plenty to do outside as well. When you have time, it is a good idea to check out the many different excursions on offer as you may be able to take a catamaran trip or even a zip wire experience in the rainforest.
