The Rising Cost of Getting Married In the UK Sparks a Steep Rise in Weddings Abroad That Coincides with the Release of Hayes & Jarvis’ New Wedding Brochure

Hayes & Jarvis are among the UK’s leading providers of luxury long haul holidays to some of the world’s most exciting and exotic locations including Mexico, Dubai, Thailand and the Maldives. Now in its 60th year, Hayes & Jarvis prides itself not only on its excellent range and competitive pricing, but also on the variety of breaks that it offers. Far from simply offering standard holiday packages, Hayes & Jarvis go the extra mile, providing specialist holidays for those looking to honeymoon, go on safari, or get married abroad.

Indeed the later is something more and more couples in the UK are electing to do, owing to the soaring costs of getting married at home. Not long ago, weddings abroad were considered exotic and inaccessible for most, but they are now seen as a cost effective way to see in the most special day of your life. According to a recent Daily Mail report, a third of those getting hitched did so abroad, a fifteen percent rise compared to the past few years.

This is little wonder when one considers that the average cost of a UK wedding is £18,500, a figure set to rise after the Church of England apply a 40% fee to all weddings from January 2013. A questionnaire revealed that most couples believed they saved around £5,000 as a result of getting married abroad, owing to the relative strength of the pound against the Euro, and the ability to combine stag and hen ‘dos’ with the holiday. It’s not just Europe that’s attracting lovebirds however; 20% of those getting married abroad combined their ceremony with Caribbean holidays.

Hayes & Jarvis are perfectly positioned to offer couples exactly what they need when it comes to weddings abroad, with a wide range of destinations to choose from. Hayes & Jarvis’ most popular wedding destinations correlate with the survey, since they cite Mauritius, Vegas and the Caribbean as their top locations. With the company soon to launch a new wedding brochure full of new ideas and offers, now would be the perfect time to start planning a dream wedding in the sun. Brochures will be available to download from the website on 23rd May 2012.
