Planning your picture-perfect Cyprus beach wedding can be a lot of fun and a very romantic way to wed the love of your life. But in the excitement about the big day itself, your dress and the party with your guests, make sure you take care of the practicalities too.
Although a Cyprus-based wedding planner will be able to assist you with the legal and practical side of your nuptials, it never hurts to be aware of what your obligations are in terms of documentation and so on.
Female First recently highlighted some of the top things you should know if you’re planning to get married abroad.
Top of the list is the legalities of tying the knot in your chosen destination. A wedding planner will be able to reassure you about these points, and will ensure that your ceremony is all above board – that’s why it’s so important to get help from an organisation with local knowledge and connections, to ensure your big day goes without a hitch.
You also need to ensure you have all the right documents to arrange a marriage overseas. The website notes that this usually involves providing copies of your birth certificates, a certificate of no impediment (showing that you are free to marry) and any divorce documentation if either of you have been married before.
This side of things might not be the most fun aspect of planning your wedding, but they are all things you need to do in advance. Other things you should start thinking about now if you’re getting married next summer include setting a budget and booking your venue in good time to ensure all your guests can make travel plans for the date you want.
