Denmark, Things To Consider when Planning a Wedding in Denmark

Things to Consider when Planning a Wedding in Denmark

Getting married in Denmark may sound romantic, but it comes with a few challenges: 

  • Hotels in Denmark are EP (European Plan), which typically means the room rate only covers the cost of the room itself,  so your meals and drinks will be an additional cost
  • The flights to Denmark are longer and more expensive from most US and CA vacations. 
  • Wedding packages in Denmark are not all-inclusive, so you'll have to hire each vendor individually (i.e. florist, wedding planner, caterer, photographer, etc.)
  • The overall cost of a destination wedding in Denmark will more than likely be much more expensive than a destination wedding in Mexico or the Caribbean.
