Planning a wedding is undoubtedly one of the most stressful activities you can do, especially with all the modern pressures of the perfect dress, perfect venue and perfect planning. Even choosing the flowers can turn into a complete nightmare. Many people are now holding their weddings abroad, getting away from it all. A different setting makes for a fresh start to a new life marked by a more intimate ceremony attended by the people that really matter. The holiday spirit also seems to take over and things like flowers and place-cards simply are easier to choose or simply no longer an issue.
