Planning a wedding is a stressful job. The responsibilities increase when you are planning a destination wedding. Things get more challenging as you are going to a foreign country and you might not know much about the country, its wedding laws, etc. Of course, you can hire a destination wedding planner and the wedding planner would handle the rest of the things for you.
Whether you are hiring a destination wedding planner or going to plan your destination wedding yourself, there are a few important questions that need to get answered. Of course, hiring a destination wedding planner means just relax and enjoy your wedding. If you are planning your wedding, then you not only need to answer these questions, but also need to make the required arrangements or research.
Here are the top questions that have to be answered before booking a destination for marriage:
1. What is legislation for a foreign couple’s marriage?
The first thing you need to check is the wedding laws in the country, in which you are planning your marriage. In some countries, wedding laws related to cross nationality weddings and same sex marriages are different and may need more paperwork. In some countries, wedding laws are flexible. For example, Danish wedding laws for same sex marriage in Denmark or cross nationality couple weddings are the same as the legislation for any foreign couple’s marriage in Denmark. Make sure there are no huge roadblocks to getting married at your chosen destination.
2. What is the COVID guideline for foreigners?
The COVID 19 situation is still not under control in many countries and in some countries, the government is taking many steps to keep the situation under control. It is necessary to check the COVID situation in the country that you are selecting for your destination wedding. Not only this, but you should also check the guidelines for tourists. In some countries, tourists need to quarantine themselves for one or two weeks, which is definitely not something you would be interested in. Therefore, make sure you check the COVID guidelines for tourists.

3. Is a marriage certificate legal in your country?
The destination country should let you have a civil marriage ceremony and receive a legal marriage certificate. Many countries have legislation to provide a legal marriage certificate to the couples that have a civil marriage ceremony. Along with the fact that you are going to receive a wedding certificate, also check if the marriage certificate is valid in your country or not! If you get married in Denmark, you receive a marriage certificate from the Danish government. The marriage certificate is valid in a majority of countries after the Apostille process. Make sure you check all the facts related to the wedding certificate and its validity.
