Future spouses need to consider that such a wedding is an inexpensive pleasure, so it is unlikely that many guests will be invited. If the bride and groom have serious financial means, the hotel can provide both a gala dinner or lunch for two, and a large-scale banquet for relatives.

Official wedding

For those who would like to register a marriage officially, the news is not too pleasant. The Maldives did not sign the Hague Agreement, which makes their territory inaccessible for legal marriages by foreign nationals without legalization. There is also no Russian consulate in the Maldives. But do not be upset, because the symbolic ceremony is no worse, and you can officially play a wedding in your hometown, then you can invite your beloved relatives and all friends.

Symbolic wedding

Symbolic wedding solemnity is no different from the official. She is often given preference even where they are allowed to register an official marriage, because this does not require a long collection of documents. All that is needed for symbolic registration in the Maldives is passports, desire and money. Depending on the tastes and personal preferences of the bride and groom, a symbolic wedding may differ in a package of services, types of decor, program.
