Deciding where to hold it is probably the most significant decision regarding a wedding – well, aside from who to get married to, but we’re presuming that part will be sorted out by now!
So how to choose where your wedding destination should be? Why should you consider a wedding overlooking Lake Geneva or a winter wedding in Gstaad or summer wedding in Lugano? And why, of all places, should you think about Switzerland?
Switzerland is one of the most beautiful, and memorable countries in the world. All of your guests will understand immediately why you decided to have your wedding there. Switzerland is a gorgeous country and has everything you could want. Stunning views as the backdrop for your photos. Fresh air and clear lakes, perfect if you want some or all of your ceremony or reception to be outdoors. Excellent weather, with summer at a comfortably warm temperature, from +25 to + 35 degrees, while winter weddings can guarantee the winter-wonderland snow! Imagine walking through lush, verdant green pastures, clear blue skies, and the warm sun overhead with your guest mingling around an open log fire, with the snow gently falling outside.
Castles, villas, luxury modern, and classic hotels. Chalets, boats, country and city locations. All are available and easily reachable. Switzerland’s range of quality venues offers exciting possibilities and options that will certainly tick all the boxes. You can even celebrate your wedding on the special train if you like, travelling through the stunning Alpine landscape! Every wedding location in Switzerland will have a view of lakes or the Alps, or both. Switzerland presents you with scenes and picturesque views that will remain with you all life-long.
Switzerland’s environment and climate both are ideal. No need to worry about vaccinations, mosquitos or the anti-malaria tablets here! (Amazing how weddings in the tropics don’t highlight that little issue) The Swiss landscape gives a fantastic variety of micro-climates. You can be on the snowy Alps and then a few hours later celebrating your wedding in Geneva or Montreux; walking along palm-tree lined avenues, or on the shores of the Seebergsee or Lake Zurich.
The size and location of Switzerland make it ideal for weddings. Located in the heart of Europe, Switzerland is easily accessible from all areas. There are direct flights from (almost) every continent. You can easily reach Switzerland by train or by car in Europe. And once you’re in Switzerland its easy and quick to travel between locations, with excellent public transport. It also means that it’s easy to go between different types of places. For example, if you want both worlds, a wedding in the city and reception in the countryside, then Switzerland offers this in abundance. Swiss towns nestle next to the countryside, making it simple, quick and easy for you – and guests – to get into and out of the city.
Having said something about the attractions of Switzerland, now let’s add something else. If there’s one thing the Swiss are known for, aside from fondue, chocolate, and attractive tax arrangements – it’s reliability. A wedding in the Alps will take place without a hitch, without any last-minute stress. Every aspect of your big deal will go off like clockwork, with excellent service and supreme quality. Everything where it should be, in the way it should be, at the time that it’s meant to be. Combine Switzerland and the services of an international wedding planner to take care of your wedding arrangements things, and celebrate your wedding without worry.
Whether you are thinking about a luxury wedding or a small and intimate ceremony, Switzerland has something to offer everyone.
