British couples look abroad for cheaper weddings

Despite the recession, UK couples are still keen to get married abroad because a foreign trip to tie the knot could prove cheaper, according to one expert.

Andrea Ventress, deputy editor of Wedding magazine, said that renting out a French holiday home could be a viable option for frugal soon-to-be weds.

She said: “A lovely chateau in France where you can have your close friends and family can be a lot cheaper.”

The editor added that savings can be made by couples who do not invite hundreds of guests and instead keep the guests down to close family and friends only.

In other wedding news, Francesca Moore, spokeswoman for hitched.co.uk, recently said that more couples are choosing to have ‘minimoons’ or shorter post-wedding breaks rather than longer traditional honeymoons.
