I was planning to get married in Ireland but that sh*t weather is putting me off . Anyone recommend good locations in Europe ? I'm thinking that this way people will be going on a holiday but going to a wedding while there . Probably looking at 60-100 guests . Wedding is not for awhile (maybe Sept 2017) . Any suggestions appreciated

Tbilisi is a great shout !

Outside of that, some friends of mine got married in September 2011 in Ravello on the Amalfi coast in Italy.
One of the most picturesque places I have ever been. Everybody really enjoyed it.

My best buddy got married in San Pedro Malaga, best wedding I've ever been at. Married on a beach, we were there for the week. Night of the wedding 50 of us went skinny dipping on the beach Thumbs Up personally thats what i plan to do one day, one of the best weeks of my life.

Just booked our wedding for Doolin. f**k the weather I'm delighted to be getting married back in Ireland it'll be a proper piss up. Worked out cheap as f**k with the £ to € at the moment although we've only paid the deposit so far.
 
We were thinking of getting married in Italy. Outside Naples looks great and it works out much cheaper although we were worried about the language barrier.

I got married in Vegas 3 years ago.

All my mates who got married in Ireland all said they should have done the same, little or no organisation involved and very little cost too.

Just back from a wedding near Toulouse, the venue was an entire village that you rent exclusively (I've no idea on price but they wouldn't be a flashy couple, this isn't P. Diddy money) 

It has a kinda main street where all of the accom is, townhouses with 3-4 bedrooms each, a chapel at the top, a pool at the bottom and a few other buildings, all surrounded by a fortified wall

Website is here: http://www.lagarde.org/

It really was an amazing place for a wedding, they put on a pig on a spit thing on the Sunday which was pretty quality too, food was class the whole time.

I will give Tbilisi a miss lads , as much as I would want to give ye a day out while we are there for the game I don't think she would be too impressed . I get to go & do what I want whenever I want but for this day she will be having the most input . Old Town Marbella came to mind & someone I was talking to said the Basque region of Spain had some nice venues . Early days yet but I would like a good few options . Cheers for the suggestions , Lagarde.org looks good & Almalfi coast is a good shout too

I am pretty sure no matter where you get married you won't understand your missus :)

I can see why marrying out foreign appeals to more and more people.

Weddings in Ireland aren't all that intimate for the most part, you're basically inviting a good number of family members who you rarely if ever see or talk too, also "friends" who you hardly see or spend time with.

At least if you get married out foreign, people you want there and who themselves want to attend will be there. Unlike many of people at local weddings who just go for the free food and piss ups.

On the money there GD . All we want is 6-10 of my close mates & their plus 1 -  then 6-10 of her mates & their plus 1 & then the rest of our brothers & sisters & their plus 1 . Parents & a couple of cousins - Aunts & Uncles . Fcuk the rest of them . I would much rather a bit of sun , get married & have close friends & families around us & chill out after the wedding with everyone . I wouldnt expect anything from anyone but for them to turn up for the wedding as it would be dear enough getting out there & taking time off work
