Legal documents UK

Wedding planning. For the most part it’s fun. But if you have booked a wedding abroad, then there is a high probability someone has (or will be) mentioning what documents for getting married will we need?

The good news, it’s not that bad, it is quite straightforward. But there can be differences on what is required for a Spanish wedding verses say getting married in Italy or a wedding in France.

Wedding planners or the travel agents wedding co-ordinator can help you decide what legal documents are needed. This will depend on the personal situation of you and your partner.

For example. If you are both single the documents for getting married will say differ from a couple who are both divorced or one has been adopted or widowed. Your agent should be able to advise you.

There is another added twist!

The business for weddings abroad is fierce.

Take Mexico weddings for example. There are national guidelines but the individual hotels do seem to have their own set of rules and this can vary region to region, hotel chain to hotel chain.

The best advice here is to speak with your agent. They will know as they will be in regular contact with the hotel and will be the first to know of any changes. The second bit of advice is to start the translation and legalisation of your wedding documents about 3 months before your wedding date.

From weddings in Portugal to getting married in Dominican Republic, www.tlcuk.biz can help with your legal document requirements.

So just how many wedding invitations do you send when getting married abroad?

From our latest poll nearly two thirds of you will be inviting 20+ guests to your big day, with just 25% opting for a smaller gathering of less than 10 friends and family.

The editor wasn’t sure whether or not to be surprised by the figures.

With many opting for an overseas wedding because of rising costs in the UK, making sure those near and dear are present to share the experience, means money saved is being spent elsewhere, so it will be a day to remember.

With so many all flying out, logistics with transport, rooms and any special requirements need careful planning and working with the wedding co-ordinator is a must so all those special guests are well catered for and looked after.

So whether large or small, from all of here at TLC UK, we hope your wedding exceeds your expectations.

Thinking about getting married abroad? You’re not alone!

Many newspaper pages are currently devoting headlines to statistics such as ‘More than a third of couples have booked a wedding abroad - a 15 per cent hike compared to figures for previous years.’

There is a simple, if not welcome reason for this. Statistics show that the average cost of a UK wedding has soared in recent years and is now close to hitting the £20K mark. This, together with the rising cost of living and pay freezes, means that engaged couples are looking further afield for wedding venues.

The cost savings of getting married abroad are significant; depending on your destination you can save as much as 50% in comparison to a UK based wedding. In these tough economic times, the maths is simple and the benefits of getting married abroad seem to add up too (being able to invite who you want, already being in your honeymoon destination, good weather…).

So, if like many other couples you are looking to get married abroad, don’t hesitate to get in touch with TLC UK . They have a dedicated team of experienced translators that can help you with the translation and legalisation of the documents you need for getting married abroad. They can also do the leg work for you by personally attending the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and any required embassy on your behalf!
