Each couple in love wants their wedding to be unusual and unforgettable. There are many ways to make a celebration like this. Someone invites to perform a star, others create costumed shows. There are also agencies that take the wedding organization for themselves, realizing, among other things, the most non-standard wishes.
Many newlyweds do not realize that there is such an option as holding a wedding abroad. Such a proposal usually introduces a couple into a stupor. Immediately there are reasons why the wedding can not be held. In fact, most of the arguments are myths.
Wedding abroad is expensive.
It is necessary to start planning a joint budget for a young family before the wedding. It is worth asking about the amount allocated for the honeymoon. Usually young people try to go as far as possible, after all, when will this opportunity be presented? The most popular places are Maldives, Dominican Republic, Miami, Cuba or Mexico. But the wedding tour to these corners of paradise will cost at least 3-4 thousand euros. It is worth adding more and spending on the wedding, which on average is the same. Organization of a beautiful wedding ceremony in the same place, away from home, which will flow into a honeymoon will require about the same amount of 3-4 thousand. On the difference, you can organize an exit to the exotic country of the closest relatives or friends. Such a celebration will be remembered clearly better than a banal party in a restaurant.
Conduct a wedding away from home – scary.
The unknown is frightening, because it is unclear how to start the organization of such an event. Many wishes that all must be fulfilled. Yes, and guests should be able to put together and not lose. It is unclear where to look for the team of organizers. Does it work on the spot or should one start from the options in his native city? There are many questions, and they frighten. But holding a wedding abroad is not so terrible. The starting point can be visualization of the wedding. And let the organizer take care of fears and phobias. He will need to look for answers to questions and not sleep at night due to the fact that not everything is decided. These experts will know in which country it is better to rent a villa, where beaches suitable for the ceremony, where there are good photographers and where to go with them. It is possible to solve all these issues on your own, especially if the plan is liked by relatives and friends. It will be necessary to study well the market of wedding services abroad. But this choice will be really conscious. In fear of organizing a wedding there is nothing wrong, but it can and should be divided either with a specialist or with relatives.
Conducting a wedding abroad is too troublesome.
When people really want something, they are looking for this opportunity. If there is no desire, then the search for excuses begins. Leaving the comfort zone is accompanied by resistance and the desire to return back. A wedding abroad seems too much of a hassle. It is necessary that all guests prepare and issue the required documents, collect information, things. Even when preparing a wedding in their city, couples are not ready to change the concept, time and place. But the changes need to be made on the fly, as long as it still makes sense. So it’s worth picking yourself up and working a little on that event, which, most likely, will become the only one in life. A wedding can be played quickly and simply, but do people really dream about it?
Conducting a wedding abroad is impossible because of the large number of relatives.
Often weddings are planned with the participation of all relatives, the number of guests can be more than a hundred. But how many of them really would like to see on this special day? Do not do without parents, close relatives, friends. But is this 100 people? The one who has so many friends, can call himself the happiest person in the world. To conduct a wedding abroad, you can choose several options. It can be a trip together with parents. A noisy and frivolous party with friends is then arranged on arrival.And you can do the opposite, take the whole party with you. And then sit with your family in a cozy family restaurant. If you take both with them, then the number of guests is better limited to 30. In this case, no one will be offended. Really people who love you will only be pleased.
Wedding abroad will not be official.
Do not take this ceremony as a show. Yes, you can officially register before – guests do not need to know about it. And marriages are believed to be in heaven. The real ceremony is the one on which beautiful oaths sound, which will be filmed in a photo and a video that will then be shown to the children. Yes, and abroad, you can get married quite officially. True, this will not have to be done on the beach or in the palace, but in the city municipality. In this case, the speeches will sound in the local language. And to legalize this marriage in Russia will have to collect some documents. But this is quite realistic.
Wedding abroad is far away.
The organizers of such a wedding sometimes frightens the distance that will need to be overcome. Some are afraid of long flights, and even with transplants, others are afraid of seasickness. And someone does not want to waste time on a trip by rail. The bureaucratic delays with documents are also frightening, which, in fact, is not so scary. But some documents still need to be prepared in time. A month will be required for the registration of a passport, a week or two for a visa. And then the purchase of tickets, hotel booking is already started. And all this besides the standard wedding hassle. The argument here can only be one – all fears and hassles pays off by the implementation of the original idea.
It is inconvenient to hold a wedding because of the language barrier.
What impedes the language barrier? It is a mistake to think that you will have to use the services of local wedding contractors: photographers, video operators, registrars, decorators. And in Europe, and even in Asia there are agencies with Russian-speaking staff. Even in our large cities there are agencies that have experience working abroad. So in every country there will be no problem finding a team that knows both the Russian language and the local one. With proper organization during the registration of marriage it will be clear what is happening. Problems will appear if, in an attempt to save, a little-known exotic resort will be chosen, and the role of the registrar will be entrusted to the first employee of the hotel. In other cases, a sincere, beautiful Russian speech will sound at the ceremony.
Weddings are held in intolerable conditions.
The idea of weddings in another country is terrible because everything is completely different there. And it really is, whether it’s a European country, or an Asian country. But is not this what it is planned to achieve, leaving the native city and leaving afar? In fact, all weddings are the same, there are similar scenarios, fillings and actors. There are just a million ways to make the event individual, taking into account their personal characteristics. In the first place there is a wedding in another country. The idea attracts with novelty, the opportunity to touch a different culture, traditions, to feel the national flavor.
There is nothing special about weddings abroad.
There is such an opinion. People believe that this is just another tourist attraction, in which there is no sincerity. Weddings in Las Vegas are essentially no different from what is being held here. Couples still pass through the arch, hear the same words of the registrar, the sounds of live music (violin or saxophone). Indeed, a wedding abroad can be held according to the usual patterns, but who forces to follow such a scenario? You can pick your ideal piece by piece. It can be a romantic dinner at sunset, away from people, alone with vows and rings. Certainly need to make a photo shoot. An excellent addition will be a master class to join the local culture – cooking or handicrafts.
Preparation of such an event will take too long.
When a couple hears this option, it quickly sweeps away due to lack of time. Is it conceivable to prepare everything for a couple of months? For such a period you can not do anything! In fact, time is quite enough. It’s just that women tend to doubt everything and pay special attention to training. We must and do not forget to take anything, we’ll have time to go on all excursions. In fact, it’s enough just to notify guests about your decision, to find on the Internet a hotel, a nice restaurant, a beautiful arch and photo, video operators. And where without a luxurious dress? The main part of the training may well be undertaken by the agency.
