One of the major benefits of getting married abroad is that you get to enjoy an extended stay with your nearest and dearest, and the value of having all of your loved ones together in one place (let alone an amazing setting!) is truly priceless.


However your Aunty Agatha and Uncle Derek might not know your hubby’s parent’s best friends, or possibly your Uni mates might not have had the chance to meet your work friends before and although everyone will appreciate their personal space to enjoy the holiday in their own way and in their own time, it is a really great idea for the bride and groom to pre-plan some get-togethers and activities that will give everyone a chance to get to know one another.


With this in mind, this week’s Friday Five brings you five fabulous destination wedding activities for guests that are guaranteed to bring your group together.

The ‘cocktail hour’ as they call it over the pond or the ‘drinks reception’ as we may refer to it in the UK is most definitely up there on my list of favourite parts of a wedding day.


So what makes this stage of the day so significant you might ask? Well, everyone has just enjoyed seeing the happy couple get hitched and after all of the emotion of a ceremony it certainly is nice to enjoy a cheeky beverage or two and begin to relax into the celebratory vibe of the day. Of course as the bride and groom you will be just about ready to start letting your hair down and getting your drink on now too, so the cocktail hour always becomes one of the most laid-back and lovely times of the day.
