Get married for free

on 04 January 2017.

With the cost of weddings spiralling and the inevitable battles about who to invite, couples are opting to marry abroad in greater numbers than ever before. It is a sensible plan on so many levels: it sorts the wheat from the chaff on the guest list, avoids the stress of planning for our temperamental British climate, which, let's face it, tends to throw up surprises even in the middle of summer and more importantly, frees you from the over-dressed and eye-wateringly expensive formality of a wedding at home.

Many brides and grooms are deciding it is simpler and lovelier by far to travel to somewhere hot and beautiful and tie the knot for a fraction of what it would cost to do it at home. sandals resort farewiseThe Sandals Group of Resorts, voted the World's Leading All-Inclusive Resorts, are scattered across the topical islands of Jamaica, Saint Lucia, the Bahamas, Grenada and Barbados.
