The UK offers amazing country manors and beautiful churches, and for those who like urban chic, London truly has some of the most über-cool locations. The options are infinite, and couples in the UK can honestly say that they are spoilt for choice… that is if they have £20k+ to spend and don’t mind having to wear wellies and holding brollies on the day…
How many of your friends and family will actually be able to afford the trip? When I got married I clearly remember thinking that I wanted exclusive people, only those who loved me deeply. And the thought of my parents inviting their friends, people that I wasn’t even that close to, was just not worth entertaining. Looking back, I realize that while your wedding day is YOUR day, it is also a day of joy and happiness for your parents which they too may want to share with people they are close to. Of course, if you are paying entirely for your wedding, you do have the right to select the people who are coming, but months later you will feel upset with yourself if you have denied your parents the chance to have their own special friends to share their joy with them.
This is not to say that if you choose to get married abroad even with just 20 people you won’t have an amazing experience. It will definitely be a day to remember, but looking back you may end up regretting not having some of the friends who couldn’t afford the trip.
