Many couples who are planning destination weddings have concerns about the legality of their wedding. Here are destination wedding tips.

Q: If our marriage is out of the country will our marriage be legal? We read some news articles about couples who got married at destination weddings and found out that their marriages were not legal in the country where they live. What should we do?

A: Getting married out of the country can have its complications. As each country may have different requirements. Such as terms of residency, documents and/or if blood tests are a requirement.

If you want to get married in a foreign country, then you should contact the nearest embassy or consulate of the country. Do this to determine the legal requirements for your marriage.

One way to avoid this potential problem is to first get married in the country where you live. You may or may not wish to tell anyone. In Canada, at the Toronto Wedding Chapel, they can provide the witnesses for you as well. Then you can jet off to your destination wedding and no one will be the wiser.

Wedding Destination Tips: Get Married before you go.

Q: We are getting married at a destination wedding. And we have to provide all of the documents requests in another language. What are we suppose to do?

A: Some foreign governments may require documents. This could include a birth certificate, premarital blood test certificate, divorce papers or death certificate. If one is underage a statement of parental consent.

You may have to have your documents translation into the language of the country where the marriage will occur. And/or authenticated in the country where you live by a consular official of that country. This can be costly and time consuming.

As these are legal documents you will have to engage the services of a professional translator. One who has experience dealing with official documentation. You will then have to seek out the consular official in the country where you live. For the country where the marriage will be taking place. Please be aware that there may not be a consular office in your city.
