Things to Consider when Planning a Wedding in England
Getting married in England may sound like a dream come true due to it's picturesque landmarks and modern charm, but it comes with a few challenges:
- Hotels in England are EP (European Plan), which typically means the quoted rate only covers the cost of the room itself, so your meals and drinks will be an additional cost.
- The flights to England are longer and more expensive from most US and CA vacations.
- Wedding packages in England 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 England will more than likely be much more expensive than a destination wedding in Mexico or the Caribbean.
