Destination Weddings in Scotland
More couples than ever before are choosing destination weddings in Europe instead of a traditional wedding at home. Destination weddings are simpler with less stress than a traditional wedding with months of planning. A growing number of couples are choosing to get married in Scotland, one of the most popular European destinations. Scotland has some of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes in Europe, charming medieval towns, and spectacular castles.
Gretna Green is a small village in southern Scotland that dates back to 1745. Gretna Hall is a renovated church built in the early 1900s and is a favorite location for wedding ceremonies. Landscaped gardens and a gazebo are features of the venue. The chapel at the Mill Forge is a lovely setting for a candlelight ceremony.
The Scottish Highlands have breathtaking scenery and are perfect for a fairy tale wedding. Aldourie Castle on the shores of Loch Ness is an elegant setting for your romantic wedding in the Highlands. The castle is only five miles from Inverness and offers a tranquil atmosphere for your big day. You and your guests have exclusive use of the castle for your wedding and reception. You'll love exploring the capital of the Scottish Highlands and surrounding countryside.
Honeymoons in Scotland offer options including Scottish castles and manor houses throughout the Highlands and Edinburgh. The Isle of Skye and west coast are perfect for an island getaway. Destinations to explore on your Scottish honeymoon are Loch Lomond, Trossachs National Park, and the Isles of Iona and Mull.

A destination wedding can be a much more affordable alternative to a traditional lavish wedding. Many places offer complete wedding packages which often includes an on-site wedding consultant to help you with all of the special details of your wedding.
Another great reason to have a destination wedding is the ability to have a smaller guest list. Instead of planning for hundreds of people you will have only close friends and family who are willing to make the trip out to your destination for your wedding.
Although a destination wedding is a more affordable option for the bride and groom, it does come at a higher cost to your guests. A small, intimate guest list will allow you to share your special day with the people who really mean the most to you.
Many couples who choose a destination wedding, also opt to combine their wedding location with their honeymoon dream. Get married in a stunning location, and then continue the celebrations in the same spot or enjoy the duration of your trip at a nearby resort.
