Wedding Abroad: How To Choose A Country

 

A wedding is one of the most important events in life. Thinking about the scenario of the wedding, the bride and groom are increasingly abandoning the traditional celebration at home. Instead, they go to the sea, to the hot sun, to the mountains, to remain this day in their memory for a lifetime.

The choice of the country for the wedding ceremony is one of the most important tasks for the newlyweds. Given the variety of destinations where you can have your wedding, it becomes clear that the choice is really not so easy.

In order to help the newlyweds in this matter, we recommend choosing a direction in two following steps.

Step 1

To choose a country for your wedding, first of all, you need to decide whether it will be an official wedding abroad (with an official document) or a symbolic wedding ceremony (has no legal force).

So, having chosen the type, let’s move on to top destinations.

The most popular countries for official marriage abroad are Czech Republic, Cyprus, Italy, Greece, France, Turkey, Dominican Republic, Cuba.

Rarer, but no less attractive countries for official registration of marriage are Switzerland, Monaco, Austria, Slovenia, Bahamas, Barbados, Jamaica, Mauritius, Seychelles, Sri Lanka.

If you have chosen a symbolic ceremony abroad, then, in addition to the above countries, it is worth considering such areas as Bali, Thailand, India, Vietnam, China, Mexico, Scotland, Philippines, Maldives. Choosing one of these countries, you still have to get married in advance, and only then go abroad to celebrate.

Step 2

So, now the list of countries for your wedding has become not so long. Nevertheless, it is still a challenge to choose a destination.

Next, it is worth answering the following question for yourself: how do you see your wedding ceremony? A classic European-style ceremony or an exotic one in traditional outfits? Can you imagine a romantic ceremony on the seaside or surrounded by green trees in an orange grove?

Anyone who wants to say words of love to the sound of the surf on distant islands is unlikely will get married in a medieval castle or the mountains. In short, if you dream about a wedding on the beach, among palm trees and other exotic things – a ceremony on the islands is right for you. If you prefer castles, palace squares and gardens, classical music, carriages, and other same things – your wedding should be in Europe.

After these two steps in choosing a destination for a wedding abroad, you will significantly narrow the list of countries. Do not forget to take into account the peculiarities of the climate, the approximate budget of a trip, the choice of a hotel, and other pleasant chores.

The list of countries is certainly more longer. We have provided you with the most popular destinations. You can go absolutely anywhere in the world and exchange wedding vows there. Many couples choose extreme ceremonies in the form of a parachute jump. Someone goes to one of the luxury hotels in Dubai, rents a sports car from one of the local rental companies, and then goes to a luxurious photoshoot. The choice is always yours. You just need to start fantasizing.

We wish you all the best and be happy!
