When planning a wedding, the first thing you always need to do is devise a budget. There is no denying that weddings are cheaper in certain parts of the world than others. But, how much cheaper? In this blog post, we are going to take a look at the cost of getting married in some popular exotic locations, namely Mauritius and Greece.
Let’s start this blog post off with some good news; a luxurious destination that is not going to cost you a fortune! Who would have thought it? Mauritius is widely considered one of the most beautiful and lavish destinations in the world. And, The Telegraph has reported that the average cost of a wedding in Mauritius is $533. It is important to point out that this does not include any of the luxury extras, like your wedding dress or photographer. However, even when you start to add those on, there is no denying Mauritius is a cost-effective place to get married. Plus, it is home to some truly beautiful nuptial spots, from the coastal city of Port Louis to Black River Gorges National Park.
If you fancy a European wedding, Greece is a popular spot. The average cost of a wedding in Greece is just under $20,000. Weddings in Greece and Cyprus are known for being big affairs. Traditionally, couples will invite everyone they know, or they know of! So, you can expect hundreds and hundreds of people in attendance. They then get money off the guests, which ends up covering the cost of the wedding, or near enough. Not bad business, right? Needless to say, you won’t be expected to take several planes full of people to Greece.
Getting married in Australia
Last but not least, what if you do not want to get married abroad and you would rather stay in Australia instead? A recent survey that was conducted by Wedded Wonderland revealed that the average cost of a wedding in Australia is $53,168. This survey involved interviewing 500 brides who had been wed in the past 18 months in order to get an accurate understanding of the cost. The survey also revealed that priorities are changing in terms of what we are spending most of our money on. Most people spend a lot of their cash on the entertainment, engagement ring, and the honeymoon. You don’t want to forget about the photographs though.
