Have you enjoyed Hungarian wedding week? If you missed the modern Hungarian wedding, the retro styled shoot, the traditional Hungarian ceremony or yesterday’s guide to getting married in Hungary, be sure to take a peek!
It’s been a pleasure discovering more about this hospitable country and its traditions. Here’s hoping that this week’s focus has inspired you to take a trip to beautiful Budapest or check out the heavenly Hungarian countryside.
To finish Hungarian wedding week, this week’s Friday Five is all about The Grand Budapest Hotel wedding inspiration! Five wedding themes and ideas inspired by the fabulous Wes Anderson film. If you missed it at the cinema, it will be out on DVD next month. This colourful, quirky movie might not shout wedding inspiration but the sweet hues, carefully considered graphics and darling details seen throughout this magical movie could certainly inspire an enchanting wedding theme.

Couples who choose Hungary as their wedding country all have on thing in common: they want to show-off Hungary to their wedding guests!
One of the most popular places and wedding styles to have is a luxury wedding in the beautiful, bustling city of Budapest. For this, couples choose a five-star downtown hotel as their wedding venue, with classic and modern styles to choose from, most of which overlook the darling Danube.

The other well-liked choice is to have an authentic Hungarian countryside wedding. Here you can find thatched roofed buildings with red geraniums in the windows, incredible horse-shows (the so-called csárda and tanya – Hungarian ranches – are typical on the Great Plain) and lots of delicious Hungarian food.
The always-popular small castles are also loved by couples planning their nuptials in Hungary, but our new highlighted wedding venue ‘Wedding Garden Budapest’ has gone to the top of the wedding trend list!

Civil wedding ceremony
In Hungary the legally binding wedding is the civil wedding. Foreign citizens can get legally married in Hungary, however bureaucracy and the time and effort it takes for the required paperwork often deters couples coming from abroad.
Therefore, most couples looking to have their destination wedding in Hungary have the legal civil ceremony at home first to complete the necessary paperwork and then they treat their ceremony in Hungary as their actual wedding day.
Symbolic wedding ceremony
The symbolic wedding ceremony has a similar feeling to a civil ceremony and is held by a ceremony keeper, however as previously mentioned this is not legally binding. It is very popular due to the impracticalities of being able to meet the requirements of an official civil marriage.
A symbolic wedding ceremony can be customized as per your wishes and such kind of wedding ceremonies can take place almost anywhere and anytime.

This week is dedicated to weddings in Hungary! When they visited the increasingly popular destination of Hungary, the very lovely Lisa and Alex (also known as 2People1Life – who are tying the knot in every country they visit as they travel the globe), were treated to a wonderful modern wedding, a traditional Hungarian ceremony and today’s sunshine-filled styled shoot by the very hospitable Hungarian Weddings.
So it seemed only right to show these fantastic features all together, along with a destination wedding guide to getting married in Hungary – be sure to come back to the blog each day this week to enjoy a sneak peek into what heavenly Hungary has to offer!
This retro-inspired styled wedding shoot took place at the ‘Hungarian Sea’ – which is actually a 50-mile long freshwater lake called Balaton Lake, the largest lake in Central Europe no less. With a 70s vibe to the day, a super-cute vintage car, bright fields of sunflowers and a visit to the fairground, this shoot looked like it was fun and then some!
“Of course, normally we just hold ONE wedding in every country we visit (except those rather large diverse ones such as America, England, Canada etc) but Hungary was going to break the mould in more ways than one! Hungarian Weddings cover so many international weddings that they had SO much they wanted to show us. So the day after wedding 52 we were on the road to our next wedding destination!”

Lisa and Alex tied the knot for the 52nd time beside the River Danube in Budapest, Hungary. As always, the precious couple looked super pretty (this time in pink!) and the locations chosen for their ‘I Do’s’ were simply stunning. The romantic lighting as the sunset behind the magnificent city buildings that created their backdrop helped to make this one dreamy wedding day and to showcase Hungary as the darling destination that it is. Enjoy!
