Which are the costs of having a wedding abroad and why choosing to have it?

Many brides are pretty surprised at the costs of having a wedding abroad. I did a very small survey and, of course it’s based on where you’re choosing to held it or maybe it's just the typical cost. So I thought it would be helpful to past here few interesting feedback I had, from other brides having their wedding abroad, in particular destination wedding to Italy or to the south of Europe.

It’s to check what other couples have or are looking to spend; and maybe if you could let me know how many people, where and if you had any big extras, this post will help others too?

What do you reckon is the most beautiful church in Rome for a wedding?

What do you reckon is the most beautiful church in Rome for a wedding?

Well, I’m not an expert but I love the churches of Rome and I can tell there are thousands of churches in Rome. I’ve got the privilege to see hundreds of them (during weddings), and based on my experience, they’re mostly in Baroque style or in Roman style (few or them are gothic too and S. Maria sopra Minerva is a rare gothic/baroque example but I’m not considering the synagogue and the mosque, of course).
