Everyone has their honeymoon abroad nowadays – some even go as far as to pick a remote location barely visited by any humans. Yet, whilst this is all normal nowadays, not many people decide to have their wedding abroad. In fact, it is still the norm to have the marriage celebrations in one’s own country (or at least, if the partners are from two different countries, to pick on one of the two or the country that both live in at the moment). The reason is quite simple: unlike a honeymoon, which is quite similar to your regular vacation, holding a wedding abroad is actually very troublesome. Yet, if you are undaunted by this fact, here are some helpful tips to help you plan that honeymoon to Bali:
- Check the legality of your marriage – this might seem like something very unfair, but it is important to understand that laws vary from country to country. Before you look for Bali wedding venues on the beach, it is important to understand that you will not be able to marry your partner if you are part of the LGBT community. As such, when looking for exotic wedding destinations, keep in mind that not every country might be welcoming of your sexuality (in such instances, the European countries are often the best choice for you). Also, sexuality might not be the only obstacle to marriage in certain countries – France, for example, requires more than a month of continuous residence before marriage.
- Wedding package or not? – if you are having a destination wedding, know that many luxury honeymoon resorts in Bali offer you wedding and honeymoon packages that are inclusive of many attractive benefits and plenty of activities for couples to enjoy. That being said, there is no reason why you should pick these packages if you are hoping to have different activities in your schedule. Talking to your wedding planner is often the best course of action here, so that you can have exactly what you want.
- Keep in mind weather and time of the year – destination weddings can easily mean disaster if you are not careful with your timing. You can easily end up in the middle of hurricane season or other bad periods of time and weather if you do not double check. If you cannot pick a date to coincide with good weather at your destination, it might make sense to instead change your destination.
- Check baggage fees – since you are going to have a wedding abroad, you will most definitely have a huge baggage load to carry, and it only makes sense to check the fees for the baggage with regards to respective airlines. It would make sense to find an airline that offers you the best deal with regards to your baggage load.
