Jamaica

To get married in Paris, you’ll need between $10,000 and $20,000. The Vaux-le-Vicomte is a bit more pricey and will cost upwards of $60,000.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam probably isn’t the first place to come to mind when you think of a destination wedding, but don’t discount it! Aside from stunning churches and hotels, Amsterdam is home to some large estates and outdoor venues. “Step into the marriage boat,” is also a saying in Amsterdam, as there are plenty of boats available for you to say your vows on.

If you decide to get married in Amsterdam, consider going between April and May, or between October and November. This is before and after tourist season, respectively.

As for cost, it varies based on the venue you choose. With a typical church venue, you’ll pay around $14,000 USD. But if you opt for a boat wedding, you’ll pay much less.
