Planning A Wedding Abroad: Where To Start

More and more couples are choosing to hold their weddings abroad. It’s like experiencing one of the most important days of your life and holidaying with your loved ones all at once!


If you’re wondering how to plan a wedding abroad, look no further. This article from Twisted Entertainment – specialists in booking wedding bands and acts across the globe – will provide some excellent guidance to help you. 


Be sure to take a look below before you start planning a wedding abroad!

Choosing Your Wedding Entertainment 


One element you’ll need to arrange way in advance is wedding entertainment hire – and this is especially important if you’re considering wedding destinations abroad. 


You’ll need to make sure that your chosen act is free when needed, and that they’ll be able to organise their travel.


If you want specially tailored entertainment for your big day, it’s usually best to go with a UK-based band or performer. They’ll understand the same references as you and may be more willing to specialise.


Create A Schedule For Your Wedding Band 


Once you’ve found your act, you need to provide a schedule for them as soon as possible so they know where they need to be and when.


Flying wedding entertainment to France, Italy, or anywhere else could work in your favor – as your performers are likely to be staying close to the venue and probably won’t have other commitments.


You’ll likely have access to them for the full day, which means they may be able to play you down the aisle, accompany reception drinks, play your first dance, and much more besides.

Picking Your Destination 

South of France weddings are all the rage currently due to accessibility, excellent food, and a huge range of possible venues – from picturesque chateaux to stylish hotels and more – but there are so many other options besides!


Check-in with loved ones before booking to ensure that as many people as possible will be willing and able to attend. 


You should also speak to your entertainment acts regarding the destination. Wedding bands from Twisted Entertainment regularly travel to a range of countries – including France, Italy and other European territories – but you’ll need to arrange it with them well in advance.

Picking Your Theme


Your theme is important – not just in terms of decor and dress, but also because certain destinations and forms of entertainment work better with particular visual styles.


For example, if you’re getting married in a chic old chateau in the south of France, you might opt for a vintage wedding band playing tea dance classics or retro-styled modern hits. If you’re in a more modern but chilled venue, a funk & soul wedding band may be more suitable.


We hope this guide to planning a wedding abroad will help you get to grips with the basics of tying the knot anywhere in the world. 


The location you choose will go some way towards dictating your theme, entertainment, and schedule – but, if you plan carefully, your destination wedding will be something you and your loved ones will remember and talk about for years to come.
