Getting Married Overseas

Our resort is prepared to handle every aspect of this momentous occasion, whether you desire an intimate, low-key ceremony for two or a lavish celebration with friends and family. We provide all the necessary elements, from the perfect site for your ceremony to the bride's bouquet. We can tailor packages to all-inclusive resort packages even with complimentary wedding packages with a minimum stay, which include everything you need for a fantastic ceremony. Of course, special upgrades and amenities are always available for those couples who want to indulge!

In addition, your island wedding in reality isn't as difficult -- or as expensive -- as you might think. More and more couples are heading to exotic locales to say, "I do." What is causing this massive exodus? We'll clue you in on what to expect when planning your own:

It's intimate. Couple's today are much more mobile than they were in the past, so they're likely to have friends and family scattered across the country. With the average wedding lasting only four hours, how can a bride and groom spend time with everyone? Having a wedding in Seychelles is like taking a mini-vacation with your closest family and friends; instead of one fleeting night, you have several relaxed days to enjoy the company of your nearest and dearest.

It's easy. The thought of spending the day before the wedding relaxing on the beach instead of running hundreds of errands has caused more than one bride to choose a wedding abroad. Brides worry about the difficulties of planning a wedding from thousands of miles away, but the truth is, it is often far less work than traditional weddings. Most hotels and resorts offer wedding-planning packages and services, meaning the details get taken care of for you. You will have to price tickets and rooms for your guests, but you'll probably avoid the frenzy of last-minute preparations.

It's often less expensive. Add up the travel, the dress, the reception bill, and you may be surprised to find out that foreign weddings are often less expensive than traditional weddings. This is because they generally involve many fewer guests, and resorts and hotels offer all-inclusive deals. For couples looking to create a really memorable occasion without breaking the bank, weddings abroad are a perfect option.

Your Budget. You may choose to spend as much as you want. However, If you're watching your dollars, opt for less expensive destinations or destinations that offer a wide range of dining and lodging options. If you wed in at a top travel spot, consider choosing an off-season date, and explore local neighborhoods with less touristy price tags for other aspects of your event, like your rehearsal dinner.

Your Guest List. At every wedding, there's usually someone who has traveled some distance to be a part of the festivities. At a wedding abroad, nearly everyone travels, including the bride and groom. That being the case, unless you're Madonna (who footed the bill for all of her guests at her Scotland wedding) it's best to accept the fact that your wedding may not be large. After all, not everyone can afford the expenditures of hotel and airfare. But that doesn't mean you should count on guests declining your invitation. Some wedding vacation areas, are just too tempting to resist -- even if they are expensive.

Give Your Guests A Heads Up. It's important to give your guests as much advance notice about your wedding as possible. That means sending out save-the-date cards a minimum of five months in advance so your guests can make the necessary travel and vacation arrangements. Reserve a block of rooms at two hotels in different price ranges, and direct all your invitees to your  Wedding Website, where you can post all your wedding details and out-of-town guest Information. If your wedding is in another country, consider reserving a block of seats with an airline. Many carriers offer discounts to passengers with groups over ten.

On Location. Unless you plan to hop on a plane once a week, you should have someone physically at your wedding location to help you plan, scout for vendors, and handle meetings and details. This person can be a professional wedding planner, a friend or family member who lives nearby, or most likely a resort or hotel wedding coordinator. Whoever you choose, your on-location contact must be reliable, familiar with your wedding style, and aware of your wedding budget.

If you are getting married at a resort, tourist destination, or hotel, consider asking your concierge or ceremony/reception site contact to recommend a wedding planner, or help coordinate the details. Even better, some hotels and resorts have on-site wedding coordinators and customizable wedding packages, so your event can be perfectly planned while you're literally worlds away. If you have the option, be sure to take advantage of all the services you have available to you. Determine which decisions are best left to your coordinator, and which you prefer to make yourself. However you split up the tasks, it is imperative you make your requests as specific as possible. You will probably visit your location before the event, so make the best of your time "on location." You might want to have your coordinator screen several possible vendors, so you can make a quick, final decision.

Details. If you are getting married in another state or country, you will need a local marriage license, and possibly a passport. The passport is simple; just be sure to apply well in advance of your wedding date. Getting the marriage license can be slightly trickier, especially in a foreign country. Contact the local city hall (if you don't speak their language, get an interpreter!) and get permission to be married in the location. Some places require blood tests, immunization certificates, or doctor's certificates in order for you to legally marry. No matter where you are getting married, it is best to find out as much as possible in advance. There may be unexpected requirements, such as an established residency, a waiting period, or a certain number of witnesses.
