European Weddings - An Overview

When some people think romantic destination weddings, they look to European locations like Tuscany, France and other areas. Getting married in a beautiful hillside village can provide a memorable start to your life together.

We are currently in Italy learning about European destination weddings. This type of wedding lends itself to eloping or very small groups (just parents and siblings, etc.). European weddings are very different than a resort in the tropics where your guests are catered to. Logistics and language considerations can present major challenges.

For these reasons, it is also very important to engage a local wedding planner (again, this is a local planner, not a tour operator). The planner can help arrange the details with caterers, cakes, decorations, etc.

We will review specific aspects of European weddings in the future.

Don't forget to check out the beaches of Spain, perfect for a destination wedding for just the two of you. The white-sand beaches of the Costa Blanca are popular with Europeans, as well as Americans searching for some of the finest beaches on Earth. Must-visit spots in the Costa Blanca include Denia, Benidorm and Guadalest, known for it's dramatic landscape.

Good site and good advice about using a local wedding planner.
