Getting Married Abroad

by Rianne Ojeh on 21 August 2014, 16:08PM

If you have always dreamed about tying the knot on a beautiful beach at sunset, with the sound of waves crashing gently in your ears – we have good news for you. It is more than possible to make this dream come true. Moreover, thousands of couples every year tie the knot in exotic overseas locations. There is no reason why you can’t be one of them, especially with a helping hand from the experts at Travelbag. For anybody ready to tear their hair out at just the thought of organising an entire wedding, it could be a good idea to relax a little and let things take care of themselves – or rather, let us take care of it. We specialise in matching loved up couples looking for the ideal wedding location, with some of the most breathtakingly beautiful overseas destinations on the planet. If a beach wedding sounds like a dream come true, it is time to make it happen. In fact, there are lots of reasons why tying the knot abroad is a great idea. A beach wedding is visually stunning, but it is also simple and relatively short compared to typical, traditional services. It is important to remember that not everybody wants to be cooped up in a stuffy building on their wedding day, especially when there is a whole world out there for the taking. Here is our guide to some of the best locations for luxury beach weddings. 


Sri Lanka

A tiny little island country, located at the foot of India, Sri Lanka is one of the most naturally abundant places on the planet. Whilst tourists tend to flock to India, this destination welcomes a more laid back crowd. There are no fewer than eight UNESCO World Heritage sites packed into this rather small island, which should give you some idea of its beauty.

The Maldives

This series of coral reefs and tropical archipelagos sits in the middle of the Indian Ocean, so it is hot all year round. Plus, it is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. You can find everything from five star resorts, like the Coco Palm Dunhi Kolhu, to swanky seafront cocktail bars, world class restaurants and state of the art diving and scuba centres here. It is a dream location for couples looking to tie the knot.

The Seychelles

Mother Nature has been very generous to these islands in the Indian Ocean. The Seychelles have a lot in common with the Maldives – they both consist of coral reefs and hundreds of scattered islets. The beaches here are just as beautiful, perfect for a summer wedding. The south west coast of Mahé is quieter than you would think, so it is a good choice for those in search of luxury and privacy.

There is not much that can be said about Thailand that hasn’t been said before. It is an extremely popular tourist destination for a good reason – namely, because it has a natural beauty that makes jaws drop. The beaches here are legendary, all white sand and tall palm trees. It is a suitable wedding location due to the simple truth that Thailand has found a balance between luxury and tradition.

The Indonesian island of Bali is volcanic, meaning that some of its beaches are black. In many ways, this is an even more dramatic wedding statement than the decision to tie the knot on a traditional white sand beach. The interplay between black beach and white dress is a truly stunning thing to behold – are you convinced yet? Whilst some Balinese resorts do cater to large wedding parties, this island is more about intimacy, which is perfect for those looking for a small, private wedding.

Las Vegas

It might be a cliché, but it is a cliché for a reason. In Las Vegas, weddings are different. They are glamorous, silly, fun and ultimately about having a good time. If the thought of sand in your high heels and tan marks fill you with dread, why not get hitched in this city of lights? You are guaranteed a wedding to remember, that’s for sure – especially if you stay at a five star resort like the Wynn Las Vegas.
