A new poll has found that Greece is one of the leading options for British couples planning an overseas wedding
A new poll by the Weddings Abroad & Honeymoons guide has found that Greece the leading option for British couples planning an overseas wedding.
As part of the survey, Weddings Abroad & Honeymoons asked nearly 1,600 future brides and grooms about the destinations they were looking at for their nuptial ceremonies.
The top three destinations considered by couples for their big day were Cyprus, Italy and Greece.
Couples must make sure that they have taken out a comprehensive
travel insurance policy before jetting off to overseas destinations for their wedding.
Ursula Barzey, marketing director of Weddings Abroad & Honeymoons, said the good weather and nice scenery are attracting tourists to these countries.
Ms Barzey said: "They remain popular as they are picturesque, relatively easy to get to and most often have better weather than you would get in the UK.
"Also, whereas a wedding in the UK will cost on average around £20,000, a wedding at one of these destinations will be around £6,500, so quite a saving for a new couple starting out."
The US, Spain, France and Barbados also figured in the list of countries British couples were considering for their overseas wedding.
