A fair few of the travel agents carry brochures now for wedding abroads such as Thomas Cook and Concorde. Heffernans travel now do a wedding service too

http://www.heffernansweddingsabroad.ie/

if not google is the best way of gathering info, look for wedding planners for france, croatia etc. also the wedding abroad forums are a great way of picking up tips if you scroll threw past ones

Hello all,

Croatia is great for having a small wedding.. its not so expensive especially if you come just before high season.. another great thing! you can rent a very nice villa for a week where all of your guests can stay..There are plenty of venues, all depends on your budget.. in Dubrovnik they have a very nice place on the island- private restaurant where you can have a lovely dinner with wine and band or dj.. its something really special.. let me know if you are interested and I can give you more details..

A very nice place for a small wedding abroad is the Algarve in Portugal, we are having our wedding there next June in Lagos with 30 approx guests. We have sourced a fab venue with the help of a lovely wedding planner in Portugal, we met her here in Dublin last Jan as they were doing a roadshow and they are back again in Nov so if you still need any more info just let me know and I will give you all the details...
