One of the best things about getting married abroad is that you get to enjoy a holiday with all of your loved ones! Make this special time together even more memorable by planning get-togethers such as a welcome party – this will give your guests time to properly unwind after their long journey whilst creating an opportunity for everyone to get to know each other before the big day.

 

Katie and Roubesh decided to do just that. As a warm welcome for their nearest and dearest who had travelled from all over the world for their special day, they threw an alfresco cocktail party, perfectly setting the stylish tone for their gorgeous garden wedding day in Corfu…which is coming up on the blog later this morning! It’s seriously amazing and not to be missed!

 

Here’s a glimpse at their pre-wedding sunset soiree to give you a little taster of the chic celebration that is to come on the blog later today, along with some inspiration and ideas for planning a welcome party at your own destination wedding.

One of the major benefits of getting married abroad is that you get to enjoy an extended stay with your nearest and dearest, and the value of having all of your loved ones together in one place (let alone an amazing setting!) is truly priceless.

 

However your Aunty Agatha and Uncle Derek might not know your hubby’s parent’s best friends, or possibly your Uni mates might not have had the chance to meet your work friends before and although everyone will appreciate their personal space to enjoy the holiday in their own way and in their own time, it is a really great idea for the bride and groom to pre-plan some get-togethers and activities that will give everyone a chance to get to know one another.

 

With this in mind, this week’s Friday Five brings you five fabulous destination wedding activities for guests that are guaranteed to bring your group together.

Throughout October Hitched.ie has been sharing our destination wedding advice with their readers and here’s the final article for you to enjoy…

 

 

One of the best things about hosting a wedding abroad is that you get to spend an extended amount of quality time with your nearest and dearest. However, planning in extra meet-ups around your wedding day need not just be for destination weddings.

 

When guests finally reach your wedding location they’re going be tired from travelling, hungry, thirsty and looking for a pick-me-up. What better way to greet visitors and get them in the mood for the forthcoming nuptials than with a welcome get-together? For guests who arrive the day before a local wedding, arrange a time for everyone to meet at a lovely pub or at the hotel bar to enjoy a well-deserved tipple.

Rachel says:

“Every day was planned with an event. A chartered sailboat served as our welcome party, where we snorkelled in a nearby lagoon and toured the bay until sunset.”
