• 1 How To Plan A Best Destination For Your Weddings

    You want to gather the best people of this world to your wedding because you want to make this day very special for you. Everyone wishes to make this day extra special, and the presence of particular ones can make your work easy. You may feel pressured on this day because you have to make lots of arrangements. The wedding locations are critical because a perfect place proves helpful to set the mood of the wedding. You have to determine a right place by considering your budget and travel requirements. Recognizing your style and passion is essential. You have to take a decision about food, the theme of the wedding, the number of guests, and various other things. If you want to plan a destination wedding, there are a few elements that should be considered: Select a Right Time for Wedding Time is a major factor to consider, and you have to arrange your wedding in a correct date and time. If you want to find the best weather for a vacation destination, you will not get wedding venue, hotel or even a garden because it is a tourist season. There will be limited opportunities, and you have to pay high rates for hotels and food items. It is not good to select a high season for weddings because of higher rates. If you have to marry in high season, you should book venue and hotel in advance, book flights and accommodations for your guests. It will help you to save a good amount of money. You can protect yourself by selecting shoulder season (right after the peak season). It will be a great way to save money and arrange your wedding in a good season. Take a Trip After selecting a place, you should personally visit your selected wedding venues. You can visit multiple locations and book your place as per your needs. You have to visit florists, local suppliers, and photographers. You should schedule a day to taste the food of your caterer and check the samples of bouquets from florists. Planning a makeup and hair session with local salon is important. Plan Extra Expenses With proper planning, you can easily manage your extra expenses. Destination weddings can be organized at home (based on your location). Other than venue, food and makeup artist, you have to plan extra activities for your guests, traveling costs for your family, welcome gifts, decorations and other things. It will be good to prepare a list and write all necessary activities on this list. Local Marriage Requirements You should consider the legal formalities about destination weddings. Each country has its wedding needs about the destination, for instance, in Caicos and Turks, you will require 24 hours and seven days in England. It means you have to reside in this country for this particular period. France requires the bride and groom to arrive almost 40 days before their marriage. Get Assistance of Someone Professional If you want to host a destination wedding at a faraway locale, you should select a reliable wedding planner who can manage everything. A wedding planner can share this burden and shortlist wedding destinations for you. This person can search all local populations for you. It will be a good idea to share your load and spend some quality time with your family members. Some resorts offer excellent wedding packages, and they even help you to find a reliable wedding planner. You should complete your search before finalizing any decision. Local administrators can be the best way to save money because the wedding planner in your area may work in a better way, but you have to cover their transportation and accommodation expenses. Examine Vendors Carefully You can check the profiles of vendors online, but make sure to check their references. You have to hand over lots of responsibilities of your destination wedding to them. They should have the ability to manage these responsibilities in a better way. It will be good to have a video chat with your vendors and check samples of their work. Try to visit them personally or at least visit your selected destination almost one month before the wedding. Your face-to-face meeting will help you to avoid lots of communication mishaps. Forewarn All Your Friends Before inviting your friends, it will be happy to tell them that you are organizing destination wedding. In this way, you can save them from embarrassment because they will get a chance to decline gracefully in case of any financial problem. You shouldn’t be upset about their absence and try to understand them. If your finances allow you, arrange travel and accommodation expenses of your closest friends and relatives. You have to consider the climate of your selected destination to arrange food, dresses, comfortable wedding locations and lots of other things.

  • 1 Tuscany - Wedding

    • France
    • by Wedding Worldwide
    • 2019/04/25

    Tuscany is a charmed land, equally blessed by the genius of man and nature, and often by the combined efforts of both. Think of the vineyards: rows of baby green vines that manage somehow to march in arrow-straight formation up the gently rolling hillsides, bounded by single files of darker green cypress trees, snaking sandy roads leading to rust-colored farmhouses and moss-coated castles, symmetrically rounded hilltops surmounted by towns so homogeneous as to seem one single building.   Every inch of land has been sculpted, first by the elements and then by generations of inhabitants whose goals were always twofold: make the land produce as much as possible, make the land as beautiful as possible. These are only few of the reasons why many couples have already decided to get married in Tuscany.   Tuscany enchants us today because it holds together as a region, from the tiniest hamlet to Florence the Magnificent. For the living proof, take a short walk one day along the sides of the Belvedere in Florence: you will leave behind the traffic and suddenly find yourself strolling down quiet lanes bounded by tall stone walls, cypress trees and creamy-colored villas.   You could be anywhere in Tuscany, and we dare you not to fantasize about living here. The Italian Wedding Event will help you navigate through Tuscan world-famed attractions, but it will also introduce you to some of its lesser-known jewels and help you to choose the perfect location for your wedding in Tuscany.

  • 1 Getting married in Norway

    Getting married when one of you are a foreign citizen You do not need to have a residence permit in Norway or be a Norwegian citizen in order to get married in Norway, but you must have legal stay. In this case, legal stay can for example mean that you have a residence permit, residence as an EU/EEA national, a visitor’s visa or a valid visa free stay. Before you can get married in Norway you must get a certificate which shows that you fulfil the conditions for entering into marriage (prøvingsattest), which is valid for 4 months. You must give this certificate to the person who is officiating the marriage. If you are getting married to a foreign citizen in Norway, he or she must submit documentation to the Norwegian Tax Administration. It normally takes two to three weeks to process applications if everything is in order. Allow plenty of time in case there are any errors or omissions in the application and you have to obtain further documentation from abroad. If you intend to marry a foreign citizen who has a permanent resident permit in Norway, or who has refugee status and has been granted asylum in Norway, you should follow the same procedure as when two Norwegian citizens marry. Foreign citizens who don't have a permanent residence permit in Norway or who haven't been granted asylum in Norway must present the following documentation to the Norwegian Tax Administration: Personal declaration Statement by the sponsor Declaration concerning division (in Norwegian only) – if he or she has been married before. If it's less than two years since the divorce was granted, you can apply to the county governor for exemption from division if the most recent joint address was not in Norway. You can download the application form from fylkesmannen.no. If it's more than two years since the divorce, you can use the personal declaration in Part III. In the case of people who are divorced according to foreign law, the divorce must be recognised by the County Governor. You can download the application form from fylkesmannen.no. The requirement for recognition won't apply if the divorce was carried out in another Nordic country, as long as both spouses were resident and had the citizenship of a Nordic country at the time of the divorce. Documentation of name and age, e.g. passport or birth certificate. The documentation must consist of original documents or copies certified by a Norwegian public authority. Please note that the norwegian Notarius publicus cannot not certify copies of foreign documents. The birth certificate must be legalised/endorsed with an apostille stamp. A certificate from the home country.  This certificate must confirm that he or she are free to marry in Norway. The certificate must have been issued in the last four months. Translation may be necessary unless the certificate is written in English, Danish or Swedish. The certificate must be the original and must be legalised/endorsed with an apostille. If the certificates are translated, submit both the original and the translation. Citizens from countries outside the Nordic region must submit documentation showing that they are legally resident in Norway. The documentation must consist of original documents or copies certified by a Norwegian public authority. Documentation from a country outside the Nordic region must belegalised or endorsed with an apostille by the authorities in the country in which it was issued. Send the documentation to the tax office which covers the person who is resident in Norway.

  • 0 Getting married in Denmark

The process can be very fast and involve little bureauracy unbureaucratic, so those after a shotgun wedding take note!   If you want to marry in a church, one of you must be a member of the Danish church. The only exception is the church at Stevns Klint (as seen in the video above). Højerup is the only church in Denmark where you can have a civil wedding, regardless of religion, sexuality or nationality.   Which documents do you need?A valid passport or identity card is required and a marital status certificate (not older than 4 months) from the country (or countries) where the bride and groom originate. In addition, a declaration of marriage must be completed.   For non-EU citizens, additional documents must be submitted, also if one of the partners is divorced or widowed. Registry offices may set their own requirements, so it is best to get in direct contact with the relevant registry office.   If you would like a name change, you can fill in a name declaration before the wedding. All documents must be submitted to the relevant registry office before the wedding for examination. The processing time differs depending on registry office, but usually this takes two to four weeks.   A small processing fee has to be paid and some registry offices require a minimum 'stay'. This means the bride and groom must be present for two days before the wedding ceremony.
