Destination wedding invites, for many of us, hold a deeper level of excitement than others. Receiving one means you’re not only part of an elite group the couple wants there on the biggest day of their lives, but you can probably squeeze in a holiday to an incredible location as well.

Plus the invite options are so cute! Who wouldn't love getting one of these through the post?

Invites (top row, left to right): Vintage Airmail Save the Date Paper Airplane from HipHipHooray.com, Indian Save the Date by PaisleyQuill.com, Leona Personalised Passport invite from CherrySealed.co.uk. Bottom row, L-R: Indian Save the Date by PaisleyQuill.com, Flamingo Fiesta Wedding Stationery suite from HipHipHooray.com.

But, the cost of attending an overseas shindig comes at a price. How much exactly depends on the time of year, duration and of course, where you’re flying to. A short-haul flight to Europe will inevitably be easier on your pocket than a far-flung exotic venue. 

As a rough guide, engine marketing agency Spike Digital has devised an interactive Destination Wedding Calculator for the top 20 wedding destinations.

While this doesn’t take into account Indian or Middle Eastern weddings, two of the most popular destination wedding locations for south Asian couples, the Calculator estimates you’re looking at at least:




* Total costs include flights, accommodation, food & drink, gifts, outfits and airport transfers.


Phew, talk about a pretty penny! It's definitely something to consider next time an overseas wedding invite lands on your doormat. Better start saving now.
