Average Cost of a Wedding Abroad: Tips for Planning a Destination Wedding
The rings were bought, the question was popped, and now the anxious couple is ready to take the final steps toward spending the rest of their lives together. Congratulations on your engagement!
Planning a wedding abroad can be exhausting, especially for couples who want to ensure every last detail of their big day is carefully arranged and executed. All of that planning stress and anxiety has the potential to suck the fun right out of your big day.
Nordic Adventure Weddings understands your wedding is one of the most meaningful moments of your life. We assist happy couples who are considering wedding ceremonies with a unique option to host their special day abroad. Our professional team of romance experts will design and plan a full day of Nordic adventure for the happy couple and their wedding party and guests in the Danish islands of Lolland-Falster, Mon, and Bornholm.
Costs Associated with a Wedding Abroad
Two of the initial questions most happy couples ask when exploring the option of a destination wedding are: "What is the average cost of a wedding abroad?" and "Can I get a cheap wedding abroad?"
Some of our couples request intimate ceremonies, holding hands under a tree while reciting their vows in the adornment of nature. Other couples desire extraordinary events, with the bride and groom arriving at the ceremony location via helicopter for a grand entrance, while some have enjoyed their special day at a medieval inn in the countryside or a majestic castle.
According to one study, Americans spend an average of $33,391 on their weddings. The cost of weddings abroad depends on the couple's wishes and preferences and the number of guests in attendance. And just to give you an idea, the average guest count for a traditional wedding is 131.
Each couple has their own desires, dreams, and expectations for their wedding day. We do our best to meet your needs within your budget. Our wedding packages start at EUR 700 per couple, with additional charges for guests and any extra services. Couples interested in a breakdown of costs are encouraged to reach out to our planning professionals for an estimate.
Tips for Planning a Cheap Wedding Abroad
Here are three ways to help keep expenses down for your wedding abroad.
1. Set your budget
Establishing a budget is the first step toward any successful wedding event. When planning a destination wedding, it's important to determine if you will be covering the travel expenses for your bridal party or other close family members you wish to be with you on your special day. The budget is affected by the number of guests, the venue, and the reception menu. Once the budget is set, our planners can present options for wedding abroad packages and prices.
2. Book your date early
It takes approximately three months from the time you contact us until we create your dream wedding. The earlier you choose your date and notify us, the sooner we can start working on the details.
3. Choose a package
All-inclusive packages like the ones offered by Nordic Adventure Weddings are among the best ways to lower the price of a wedding abroad. Couples can choose from one of the following packages:
• Town Hall is the cheapest and easiest wedding abroad option we offer. The package starts at EUR 700 per couple and can be customized to accommodate extra services and requests. Just ask!
• Romantic Location starts at EUR 1.850 per couple and features stunning scenery. Couples can choose the beach, the forest, Maribo Lakes Nature Park, Romantic Garden, Hestehoved Jetty, or the Rose Garden for their destination.
• Great Adventure packages start at EUR 2.600 per couple and are the most lavish option we offer. Enjoy a full day of eco-style weddings or elopements with a professional photographer to capture every moment.
