Legal requirements

Nevada marriages are legal and recognised all over the world. Vegas weddings are infamous for being quick and easy in terms of paperwork and there is no waiting period or blood tests required, so weddings on short notice are possible. Your officiant or wedding planner will typically be able to help you and talk you through the legal paperwork process.

 

Some countries do require an Apostille and proof of that the marriage ceremony was performed, which consists of a certified copy of the marriage certificate. Some countries may also require a certified copy of the marriage license as well. Be sure to check with the appropriate agency in your country before leaving for Vegas. It is worth noting that British citizens must provide formal notification of an overseas marriage with the General Register Office before the Nevada wedding and then by depositing a certified copy of their marriage certificate (and possibly an Apostille from the Nevada Secretary of State) when they get home.

 

 

At this time Nevada does not offer same sex marriages. Your chosen minister or religious official must also be certified to perform marriage ceremonies in Nevada, search for approved officiants here.

If you are looking to get married abroad and are wanting to find somewhere a little bit different and off the beaten wedding track, then a destination day in heavenly Hungary could be the location for you!

 

And who could be better to bring you all of the inspiration and information you need to for getting married in Hungary than the talented team of wedding planning experts at Hungarian Weddings? So, if you’re looking for information on how to get married in Hungary, look no further! This destination wedding guide to getting married in Hungary has all the details you need…

 

 

Hungarian Weddings:

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!

Wedding ceremonies

 

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.

Destination Wedding Guide – Getting Married In Central Park

New York City, the Big Apple, the city that never sleeps, the bright lights of Broadway and towering screens of Times Square, the hustle and bustle of Fifth Avenue, the fashion capital of the world, the iconic skyscrapers that command the skyline – if you’re a city girl, NYC is hard to beat when it comes to looking for a sleek, metropolitan destination wedding location.

 

And what better than to say “I Do” in the most romantic part of city – in the tranquil oasis of Central Park? There’s no denying it is one of the most famous locales too…

It’s where Carrie and Aidan go their separate ways in a real tear jerker moment at Columbus Circle, it’s where Carrie and Big meet for lunch and end up in Central Park Lake, it’s where Carrie and Miranda have lunch in the Ladies Pavilion in the first SATC movie, and the list goes on! But if you’re not a ‘Sex And The City’ fan, it’s also the most filmed location in the world! Need we say more?

 

If you fancy getting married in Manhattan, our wedding planning friends from Wed In Central Park are here to help with a great guide to getting married in Central Park….

 

Wed In Central Park:

Many couples come to New York City to get married.  There is a vast choice of locations for wedding ceremonies in the city, ranging from the sport fields to City Hall to one of the city’s beautiful parks.  One very popular location for both locals and visitors alike is Central Park.

 

Central Park was built in the 1850s, and the Upper East Side and Upper West Side areas of New York City grew up around it.  You can still see the mansions of this period lining the streets along the borders of the Park.  There are several structures within Central Park that lend themselves to weddings, depending on your preferences when it comes to size of party, privacy and distance from the entrances to the Park.  Be prepared to walk at least a little if you are planning a wedding in Central Park!

 

Ladies Pavilion:

One of the most popular locations is the Ladies Pavilion, a cast-iron structure with slate roof.  It was originally designed in 1871 as a shelter for trolley passengers.  It is no longer in it’s original location, and is now beside the Lake, offering iconic views of the water, with trees and tall buildings behind it.

Wagner Cove:

Another popular location for the smaller party is a rustic wooden shelter called Wagner Cove.  Many couples choose this because it offers some privacy, since it is hidden away by the Lake down some stone steps.

Shakespeare Garden:

Some couples prefer to be amongst the flowers, and at the right time of year the Shakespeare Garden is perfect for that.  It is a shaded, out of the way spot named for the famed English poet and playwright because the flowers in it are all mentioned in his plays and poems.  These locations tend to be popular with parties under twenty guests.
