SRI LANKA - GOOD NEWS FOR TOURISM - SRI LANKA TOPS THE LIST OF GREAT WEDDING HOLIDAYS
Sri Lanka, Turkey and holidays have all been highlighted as great ways to celebrate a wedding, according to a list published by foreign currency exchange company Caxton FX.
Working with wedding consultant Lisa Burton, Caxton revealed the Top Ten wedding and honeymoon destinations, with Sri Lanka at the top of the list.
The island was hailed for its “miles of sugary white sand flanked by bamboo groves” and the choice of traditional Buddhist Poruwa weddings or “a civil ceremony accompanied by dancers, drummers and traditional singers.”
Cyprus was the next on the list, due to its “stunning beach front resorts,” followed by the Caribbean. New York holidays made the list at number four, due to the sheer style of the city and its remarkable range of wedding and honeymoon venues.
Ms Burton told Caxton FX that “leafy central park offers stunning settings, from rustic Ladies Pavilion to the beautiful Conservatory Gardens, which you can hire exclusively for your ceremony.” There are also many cheap flights to New York available via internet booking.
Even though it is facing severe economic problems, Greece still came in at number five, as a perennially popular place for a wedding, followed by Thailand,which happily lives up to its soubriquet of the Land of Smiles.
Mauritius and Italy took seventh and eighth place, with the increasingly popular destination of Turkey coming in at number nine. Caxton FX agrees with most observers that “this sun kissed venue is great for couples on any budget.”
At number 10 was the Bahamas, with their perfect beaches and tropical weather. Anyone planning a wedding break at any of these places should ensure the best bargain deals by searching online.
