Notes

  • FlightsWithFriends is a new (Feb2013) group trip planning site enabling small groups, families and friends to find and book flights and hotels together. Members of the group can see the same travel options, pin comments and chat in realtime about the arrangements.
  • Weddings in Italy is an American company that offers weddings for British nationals in romantic locations all over Italy.
  • Marry Abroad is an overseas wedding planning website. It has quite a useful guide to the legal requirements for weddings in numerous countries.
  • Walking on Sunshine Weddings specialise in organsing barefoot beach weddings in Goa.
  • Ranch holiday specialist, Ranch Rider (01509 618811) has been promoting some of its ranches, estancias and bush homes as wedding venues.
  • Travel journalists, Mark Hodson and David Wickers' website 101holidays.co.uk has a new (2010) sister site, 101honeymoons.co.uk, edited by Jane Anderson, who knows more about wedding and honeymoon travel than anyone in travel media. 101 are similar to Travel-Lists in most but two respects: they too recommend travel providers based on years of experience in travel media, but they limit their recommendations to just 101 companies.... and they are better looking, mostly. Grr.
  • If you're planning a wedding, then you almost certainly don't need me to tell you that You & Your Wedding is a good source of inspiration for all things 'wedding' including travel ideas.
