The pros and cons of a wedding abroad

The main advantages of a wedding abroad are as follows:

  • A wedding abroad will give you a lot of vivid impressions.
  • If you choose a country with a warm climate (Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, the Maldives, etc.) for your wedding, you can not worry about the weather - it is always great there.
  • In exotic countries, you can not think about wedding decor, as the local flora will be an excellent decoration for your celebration.
  • You can spend your honeymoon in your chosen country, therefore, you do not need to spend money on a flight. In addition, many hotels in such cases will give you significant discounts..

A wedding in a foreign country has several disadvantages:

Since the organization of the celebration will be held thousands of kilometers from you, you will not be able to control the whole process live, but only virtually.

You will not be able to invite a lot of guests to the celebration, which is connected both with large financial expenses and with the fact that some guests are afraid to fly or cannot tolerate the climate of your chosen country.

If we talk about the cost of the wedding, it is difficult to attribute this item to the minuses or pluses. After all, it all depends on your requests: do you want to hold a modest celebration for two or a grand wedding with a large number of invited guests.

Organization of a wedding abroad: trust the agency!

Independent organization of a wedding abroad is not only a difficult, but sometimes impossible task. After all, you need not only to somehow control the process of preparation for the celebration, but also to learn all the nuances of the legalization of painting (if you want to hold an official ceremony abroad). Therefore, it is better to trust professional agencies that organize for you a unique turnkey wedding in the Maldives, Sri Lanka or in Europe. Experienced specialists will deal with the most important issues related to the organization of the wedding, so that everything goes at the highest level..

Wedding Ceremony Abroad: Formal or Symbolic?

If you have already registered a marriage in your native country, then abroad you can hold a beautiful symbolic ceremony, which you will remember for a long time. Another option is the official registration of marriage, the organization of which is best entrusted to professional agencies, because they will take on all the efforts to legalize the marriage. Independent legalization can be a difficult task, because you do not know all the subtleties of the legislation of a foreign country and you can do something wrong.

An official ceremony abroad involves the presence of an authorized person and the issuance of a certificate of an established form, which will later need to be translated into Russian and certified by a notary. Also, keep in mind that an official ceremony will cost more than a symbolic.
