By ~~artAuthor~~ Jan 06, 2020

Planning a wedding can be a daunting task, whether it’s at home or further afield. Luckily there will be over 2,000 travel industry experts present at Holiday World Show Dublin to help you get started with insider advice on the best destinations and resorts, whether you’re planning an intimate getaway or a larger family celebration.

Some of the most popular wedding and honeymoon destinations will be exhibiting at Holiday World Show Dublin, from old favourites to exotic, far flung locations. Here are some of the top wedding destinations exhibiting at the show.

The Caribbean

With powder white sands, turquoise seas, a backdrop of blue skies and swaying coconut palms, the Caribbean Islands are the perfect location for a memorable destination wedding. Many of the islands are surrounded by a natural reef, making the turquoise waters just offshore clean, calm and full of sea life, and the perfect backdrop for a beach ceremony. The pace of life is easygoing, the local welcome genuine and the diving truly out of this world - snorkeling and scuba diving are a must!  A Caribbean wedding also provides wedding guests with an opportunity to incorporate a holiday into their stay.

This diverse group of islands has something to suit every taste! Enjoy complete privacy for a small intimate wedding by hiring out a segment of the beach, or host all of your friends and family one of the many luxurious mega-resorts.

With exhibitors from The Bahamas, Barbados, Cuba, The Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Turks and Caicos, there is plenty of Caribbean options for couples to choose from. Our experts at Holiday World Show 2020 will be able to offer advice and guidance on marriages in the Caribbean.

The Mediterranean

The Mediterranean has long been a favourite destination for Irish holidaymakers, with thousands returning to seek the sunshine year after year. The beautiful weather, delicious food and wine and welcoming locals mean that weddings in the Med are very popular with Irish couples. Home to paella, sangria and some seriously incredible wedding venues is the fabulous Spain. From ancient cathedrals to picture-perfect beaches, the potential a Spanish wedding has is beyond imagination. Whether it’s a city wedding in Barcelona, a countryside celebration in the beautiful Basque Country or a laid-back ceremony on the beach, experts at Holiday World Show will be on hand to plan the perfect ceremony.
 
If you’re on the hunt for a gorgeous wedding venue in one of Europe’s most romantic countries, be sure to take a look at wedding venues in Italy. With its idyllic villages steeped in history, picturesque vineyards, and breathtaking cathedrals there is a bounty of scenic wedding locations to choose from. Check out Sorrento or Tuscany for an intimate countryside wedding; while the Amalfi Coast and Puglia are perfect for luxury celebrations.
 
Located south of Italy, the tiny Mediterranean island of Malta is less than half the size of Louth. However, Malta has a growing reputation for destination weddings, due to its pleasant climate, idyllic scenery and English-speaking population. With direct flights from Ireland, and no residency requirement to exchange vows, it is now easier than ever to plan your ideal wedding in Malta.
 
Medieval castles, cobblestone villages, captivating cities and golden beaches: the Portugal experience can be many things. History, great food and idyllic scenery are just some of the reasons that it is popular as a holiday destination. Add to this a variety of accommodation to suit all budgets and low cost flights; it’s no wonder that Portugal is fast becoming a favourite wedding destination for Irish couples.
 
Travel experts will be on hand at the Holiday World Show from each country to help you plan your ideal wedding or honeymoon.

From the ornate palaces to the rich coral reefs and glorious wildlife, Thailand is a memorable destination to celebrate your special day, and with vibrant nightlife and beach parties it is a great spot for a honeymoon.

Take a trip to the Northwest for wildlife and visit the cosmopolitan city of Bangkok, before heading south to the beautiful beaches, crystal-clear waters and luxury resorts of the island wedding destinations of Phuket and Koh Samui. Helping to keep wedding planning straight-forward, Thailand does not impose any residency requirement to get married.
