Planning a beach wedding?

Beach weddings can create magical, memorable moments for both the happy couple and their guests. It is important to get the little details right, but with careful planning it is possible to achieve a low-cost beach wedding.

Beach weddings which can be as elegant or as simple as you choose them to be.

You can have a quiet, intimate gathering with just a few of your closest friends and family, or you can have a large, spectacular event celebrating with everyone that you know. Whichever way you decide to go, deciding to get married on the beach will prove to be as beautiful a setting as you had hoped for.

When planning beach weddings abroad there are so many great locations to choose from. The Bahamas, Jamaica and Mexico are all very popular, but a little closer to home, Northern Cyprus offers a great location to have a destination beach marriage that doesn't have to break the bank.

White sands and the blue waters will only add to the setting for your big day, and with a soundtrack of rolling surf and a breeze in your hair, you can meet on the beach in your beautiful dress ready to get married, barefoot.

With a wedding on the beach, you also have the opportunity to create a truly personalised venue with beautiful tropical flowers, music provided by one of the fantastic local bands or you could arrange for a DJ to play all of your favorite tunes. You can also enjoy a long stroll down the sandy beach when it's all over, and take time to soak up all of the wonderful moments that have just taken place.

Beach weddings also give you the opportunity to have your honeymoon in the same location as where you've just had your ceremony, which not only extends the special event but can also save on costs.

Top tips for getting married abroad

Getting married abroad can be a great option to create a memorable event, experience something new, and most importantly it will be great fun for you and your guests. However, organising weddings abroad can be tricky, with costs, foreign laws and logistical issues to look out for, so you need to plan well. The following are some of the tips for successful weddings abroad:

Select your destination wisely

You need to ensure that your destination is friendly to all your guests. If possible, find a country that has sufficient sun during the appointed wedding time, but ensure that the climate is favorable to both the young and the elderly people.The weather situation of your preferred destination will also influence you choice of wedding dress, and you'll also need to guide your guests dress appropriately for your marriage and avoid any inconveniences.

The country should also have some wonderful wedding venues, whether at the beach, a famous restaurant, garden or a historic landmark that will make your wedding day truly remarkable.

You also want to make sure everyone is safe and free to enjoy the day, so ensure the destination is safe from any social problems like crime or natural disasters.

Select your guests carefully

Travel for overseas weddings can become costly, so you may need to cut on costs by reducing the number of people in your guest list. You may have to buy air tickets for your family members, and so you may need to reduce any avoidable costs by inviting only a few friends and members of the most immediate family. But remember, people understand how expensive these things can be, and this is YOUR big day so don't worry too much about what neighbours, distant relatives and co-workers might think.

Help your guests plan their journey

Remember that some people find traveling difficult and stressful - they might not be familiar with your wedding destination, or even the flight customs. Help them book their flights and arrange travel documents, and if possible let them fly as a group. Sending someone to receive them at the airport can be extremely welcome, so that they do not feel stranded when they arrive, and organise transfers to and from the wedding reception area.

Budget well

Overseas wedding insurance, photographers, videographer, wedding planners, venue fees, air ticket and airport transfers are just some of the costs involved in overseas weddings. You need to budget well so that you do not run out of cash in a foreign country.

Pull your resources together in advance, and set some money aside for emergencies. Planning, booking in advance and using someone with local knowledge is the key to successful overseas wedding, so seek advice from an experienced overseas wedding planner, who will be able to advise on all the costs involved.

Ensure that you meet all the legal requirements of your host country

Different countries have different marriage laws. Ensure that you meet the minimum age specified in the constitution of your host country, but you also need to meet all the customary requirements and obtain all the necessary licenses required during weddings. Some cultures have strict dressing rules, so make sure you observe these regulations too.

Expats in North Cyprus

Many British expats are now living in North Cyprus. The area offers an excellent lifestyle for British expats looking for a higher standard of living for a lower cost, either when they give up work and draw their pensions, or for young families.

​For couples with young children the education system in North Cyprus is very good, with a range of English speaking nursery and primary schools.

People visiting the island quickly fall in love with the unspoilt beauty and slow pace of life - and the crime rate is almost non-existent. Although less commericalised than the south, there are still British pubs and sports bars, a buzzing nightlife in Kyrenia, and English is widely spoken. Expats living in North Cyprus will also find a vast array of clubs and societies dedicated to Brits.

The climate is warm and sunny even in January, there are English newspapers and the cars drive on the left - making it a home from home for British expats in North Cyprus without the rain!

Although the general cost of living has increased over the past few years as popularity has grown, whilst it remains out of the Euro Zone, it is still a very cheap place to live and property for sale in North Cyprus offers some of the best value in the Mediterranean. Alcohol and cigarettes in North Cyprus are exceptionally cheap and many people living in the south will cross the border to buy these. It is also easy for people living in the north to cross the border to the south, where there are a wider range of well known shops and department stores. (A passport is needed to cross).

However, although living costs are low, if you are planning to work in the country you should bear in mind that the average wage is also very low.

Sun and Heat Protection during an Outdoor Wedding

If you have decided to opt for an outdoor wedding under the North Cyprus sun, it is important to stop and consider all the aspects of an outdoor wedding? You and your guests might be outside for many hours throughout the day, and the last thing you want is for you or your guests to be burnt for pictures and leave the wedding early because they are sun-fried, so here are some sun protection tips to keep in mind whether you're the bride, groom or guest at an outdoor wedding:

1. Do not tan in a salon or outdoor prior to the wedding. Tanning of any sort is bad for your skin and can cause peeling right before the wedding.

2. If you want to get the outdoor tanned look, opt for self-tanning products that will give you the same effect without harming your skin. There are many lotions and foams that work wonders on the skin.

3. Make sure you apply sunscreen numerous times throughout the day. Encourage your guests to do so as well. Indicate on the invitation that the wedding is outdoors and remind them to bring sunscreen - or even hand out small decorative bottles of sunscreen as an early wedding favor for your guests.

4. Try and avoid the sun as much as possible between the hours of 10am and 4pm. The sun's rays are strongest at these times. Perhaps it's a good idea to get pictures closer to the morning or early afternoon,

before anyone is too tired (or burnt) from the sun.

5. Pack (and tell your guests to pack) cover-ups, shawls, wraps and hats for protection against the heat of the sun. Shawls are perfect for covering up your shoulders since they are a prime area for burns.

6. The wedding coordinator can help ensure there are tents and umbrellas for shade. This is very important because spending the entire day in the sun with no shade can cause heat exhaustion and be harmful to your health.

7. Finally, make sure there is plenty of water for you and your guests. There's nothing worse than being hot and thirsty. Lack of water can cause dehydration which can be very dangerous for you and your

guests. Have water coolers setup in different areas so they are easily accessible for everyone.

Keep in mind the precautions listed above. It will ensure that your wedding goes smoothly for you and your guests. After all, it is the most important day of your life and you don't want to take any chances of something ruining your special day!
