Whats wrong with the French version of ( http://www.dreamweddingshawaii.com/oahu-weddi... )weddings? We almost did one of those, then at the last minute my wife wanted to go to Oahu for a tropical themed one instead. The capital of romance, choosing something different though. Its a strange thought to try and comprehend.

Many young couples in Britain try to avoid the crippling cost of a conventional wedding at home, where they have to invite many people and other hanger-ons, by going to an exotic location and getting married without inviting anyone!
From a pure weather point of view, it makes sense to go where it's sunny all year round. Also, some places are specialised in weddings and offer a very good and competitive package.
Also, having the marriage where your honeymoon takes place also makes sense.
