Spending what is supposed to be the most romantic day of your life on an island surrounded by crystal clear waters and unspoiled beaches seems like a no-brainer, really. But if you still need convincing as to why Mauritius is a great place to say ‘I Do’, then read on…
When you think about Mauritius you can’t help but think about romance…right? But while most people would consider this beautiful, mountainous island a great honeymoon destination not many consider actually getting married here. We can’t think why, considering this is a quick 4-hour flight from South Africa and is a visa-free destination! But the team at Pentravel share some extra reasons why Mauritius is a great destination-wedding option:
Make your wedding arrangements feel like a holiday
Some people think planning the wedding is half of the fun. But, for those of us who could, to be honest, do without all the added stress, a destination-wedding is definitely the way to go. Of course, you will still need to do some planning, but it’s more likely to feel like planning for a great holiday than arranging a wedding!
Value for money
Most couples are working within tight budgets these days and, surprisingly, a venue in Mauritius can quite easily compare in cost to a local venue hire in South Africa – which is why more and more couples are going this route each year. Plus – once you’ve said ‘I do’, you’re already on honeymoon!
Save on the wedding planner
Most resorts in Mauritius have in-house specialists and dedicated wedding coordinators – and it’s included in the price.
Share the experience
What could be better than having your family and friends all with you on the most important and romantic day of your life? Having them there for the whole holiday! Because Mauritius is still considered a budget-friendly holiday destination, many people will make the effort to join you on your wedding holiday – and they’ll usually get a discounted rate to boot!
Speaking of cake..
You can still enjoy planning the wedding of your dreams, taking everything into account from the flowers and cake to the music and décor. Most resorts allow you to choose from one of our two wedding packages and then customise them more as you see fit!
Extra the spoils
From bottles of bubbly on arrival to complimentary lunches and adventures like parasailing, golf, intimate dinner dates, speed boat excursions and sailing away at sunset… there are always little extra benefits and perks thrown in especially for the bridal couple!
