It’s a Nice Day for a White Wedding, Especially for EasyJet

Posted August 21, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Wedding_beach These days, it seems that even the weather has taken it upon itself to make a mockery of Billy Idol and his songwriting. Contrary to his braying about it being ‘a nice day for a white wedding’, most of the time these days, it’s a horrible day for a white wedding—if you hold it in Britain, that is.

Peter Staddon, a spokesman for the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA), has announced a recent increase in overseas weddings. The famously unpredictable British weather, combined with great deals offered by low-cost airlines such as Ryanair and easyJet, mean that many couples prefer to escape to exotic locations such as the Mediterranean to hold their nuptials.

What Staddon left unsaid though, was that it’s probably a lot more romantic telling your nearest and dearest you eloped to Nice or Florence to get hitched, rather than showing everyone photos of your muddy ceremony at a chapel in Slough. You’ll probably escape the inevitable ‘embarrassing speech by drunk uncle' situation this way, too.
