Perhaps you want to join in the time-honored tradition of marriage in a country more connected to the Old World than the new. Europe has some of the most beautiful destinations in the world, and its rich cultural variety is steeped in classic romance.
Don't think tropical islands are the only place to marry by the sea. Europe offers gorgeous beaches along the coasts of France, Spain, Portugal and Italy. The best part of a destination wedding is the built-in getaway for you and for your guests, and these European countries are filled with breathtaking natural beauty and exciting attractions.
For a warm climate with a beautiful natural setting, consider Greece. Its mountainous terrain could provide the perfect backdrop for a gorgeous wedding or romantic tour. In Ireland you could be married in a quaint chapel near the Atlantic or even in a castle tower. Many European countries offer similar settings straight from a fairy tale.
There are varying regulations for the legality of marrying abroad. Many choose to be legally married in their home state, saving the expense and pomp for the religious ceremony or family celebration of their dreams in another country. Whatever the paperwork, the photos of your European wedding or honeymoon are sure to surpass your imagination and live forever in your memory as the perfect start to a lifetime of happiness.
