Booking a Wedding Abroad with TUI: Everything You Need to Know

It’s been a long, cold winter, and a long, tough pandemic, so it’s only natural to look forward to your wedding and dream of the perfect day in the perfect setting. If you want to have the celebration of a lifetime, consider booking a wedding abroad with TUI – you can get married surrounded by your friends and family in an incredible location.

Here’s why you should consider booking wedding abroad with TUI…


The Right Price

Destination weddings from TUI are affordable – there’s a huge range in pricing, so you can book your dream wedding abroad for almost a third of the cost of the average UK wedding, which currently stands at £15k! Of course, if you want a blow-the-budget big day, TUI can help you with that, too.

Deposits for booking a wedding abroad with TUI start from £150 and go up to 50% of the wedding package cost, so you’re bound to find an option that suits you when booking your wedding abroad.

If you’re looking for a truly affordable option for your wedding abroad, consider Cyprus. The average cost of a wedding package and holiday to Cyprus for two starts from £5,500 (excluding reception and paperwork costs).

Some venues will also offer discounts to groups of more than 10 adults, which is a great option if you’re planning a larger gathering at your wedding!

For those that really love getting value for money, you can stay on in your chosen wedding destination for your honeymoon too, which will make it more affordable, or take advantage of TUI’s multi-destination holidays to get even more of an experience without breaking the bank.

Tailored to You

There are so many options to choose from when it comes to booking a wedding abroad with TUI – choose from over 100 venues across 13 countries to find your perfect fit.

No matter what kind of ceremony you’re dreaming of, whether it’s a blessing on the beach or saying your vows in a winter wonderland, TUI can arrange all kinds of services, including legal, religious and same sex ceremonies, as well as beach and winter ceremony options. You can also do a vow renewal!

Before you contact the wedding experts at TUI, think about whether you want a summer or winter wedding, and consider whether long or short haul is preferable. Once you know these things, you can discuss them with the team and find the perfect package to suit your needs.

We recommend booking your wedding at least six months in advance. This will give you enough time to plan and arrange those all-important legal bits, like giving notice of marriage in the UK. If you fancy tying the knot in a destination such as Mexico or Cyprus, you can book weddings here as late as three months before your big day – making it an ideal choice if you’re keen to marry quickly.

Peace of Mind

All of TUI’s packages are ATOL protected, which means your money is safe. There is also specialist wedding insurance available for couples to take advantage of, as an extension to the travel insurance offering from TUI – you’ll need to call the weddings team for costs, but it’s strongly recommended that you protect your wedding with the appropriate insurance.
