Destination Weddings - Getting Married On Your Honeymoon
Destination weddings are becoming increasingly popular with couples who would prefer to skip the fuss of a traditional wedding and get right to the fun!
Are They For You? -
Destination weddings aren't for everyone. If a big wedding with all your friends and family is what you desire, skip this idea. Even with a year or more of planning, it's just about impossible to get everyone's schedules coordinated for this kind wedding.
Local Marriage Laws -
Before you say "I do" to a destination wedding, plan to do a little research into the details of the local marriage laws. Many countries have relaxed their marriage rules and laws, making it easier for foreigners to get married there. Even so, you'll still need to do some research.
Foreign Destination Wedding -
Before you decide to get married in a foreign destination, get some info such as: will your home country recognize the wedding as valid? What is the minimum residency period before the marriage can be performed? What paperwork do you need to get married there?
Beach Weather -
Before deciding on a beach destination wedding, research the following questions: Do you need proof of divorce? Do you need to have a blood test performed? What is the typical weather there during the month of your wedding?
Destination Wedding Costs -
Prior to making a decision to wed in a foreign destination, find answers to the following questions: What are the costs and fees of a marriage license? Are there special room rates for bridal party and guests? What paperwork are you required to bring?
