Hello! Are there any Ladies out there who had a destination wedding in Europe who can provide some insight? I’m wondering if it made it a little more challenging to plan with the vendors, language, follow-up, etc.
Also, I’m deciding if this would be right for us. Would be look back and wish we had a wedding here where it would be easier for our family and friends to attend? Thank you in advance for your insights/advice.

where in Europe are you considering? I see London in your sn but there will not be a language barrier there. I think it really depends on which country you are considering and how accessible that is for your guests. I can imagine several great places for a destination wedding in Europe and there is no shortage of castles (think of the photo opps).

I forgot to add, it may be easier to get your marriage liscence in the US before heading off to marry in Europe. I know it is much more complicated to marry in Germany than the US from a legal and paperwork perspective, especially if neither of you are EU citizens. I can’t speak for all countries but it is much easier to have a ceremoney here.

Hi and thank you for your input. I’m thinking about France or Italy and you must have been reading my mind because I was thinking of possibly a castle setting. Were you married abroad? If so do you have a recommendation of a service who might be able to coordinate? I know there are some websites, but not sure if any are good. Thank you!

just an idea. we opted to get married officially at the city hall in U.S. and celebrating the day with friends and family that can’t make it to the destination wedding. and having a close friend or family to marry us again or say some special words at the destination wedding.
as for other vendors, we hired photographers to come with us instead of looking for photographers there, because we won’t sure if we were going to like the photographers or their work. plus the photographers we hired also did our engagement photoshoot ahead of time so we have some photos to display at the wedding. i say this is the most important part since photos will last forever.
