Q. Why choose a destination wedding?

Q. What are the legal requirements for a destination wedding?

Q. How far in advance should I plan my destination wedding?
A. The ideal time for couples to begin the booking process is about 12 months from departure, allowing Flight Centre to price shop for you with travel suppliers who are offering incentives for early bookings. Of course if you decide in January to have a wedding in June we can make that work as well!
