Married abroad

( — October 7, 2015) — Lots of people today are getting married abroad. Some people are simply following a popular trend, while others have met their soul-mate abroad and decided to have a wedding ceremony in their partner’s native country. Whatever the reason has lead you to marry abroad, here are a few rules by an Ukraine Brides Agency that will help make wedding arrangements easier.

Paperwork is First Priority

Of course, your feelings are topmost, but without sorting out all necessary wedding documents you won’t be getting married abroad! Depending on the country, you will need from 3 to 6 months to gather all necessary documents.

Send Invitations in Advance

Let people know about your wedding well in advance. Your guests need time to prepare for your special day, especially if they need to fly abroad.

Check the Weather Forecast

Just like the brides of other nationalities, brides in Ukraine pay a special attention to the choice of the wedding dress. To make the right choice it is necessary to keep in mind a typical weather of the country where the wedding will take place.

Talk to the Airline

If the whole big family is travelling together (mind that Ukrainian brides usually have big families) talk to the airline and ask for a group travel discount. If you manage to get one, you can save a good deal of money. Most airlines do not mind brides taking their wedding dresses aboard as a carry-on. However, be sure to clarify this point.

Book Tickets in the Bride’s Maiden Name

When buying tickets, Ukraine brides should book them for their maiden name, if they have not officially changed it before the flight.

Don’t Forget the Documents

Before heading to the airport, double-check that you have all legal documents. Different countries require different documents so be sure to get the list of the required documents well in advance.

Always Remember the Extras

Even if you have thoroughly planned your wedding budget, do not forget about the extra expenditures that may occur quite unexpectedly. These may be expenditures on the travel insurance, translation or legalization of documents, etc.  To avoid difficulties add at least 10% to the amount of money already planned in your budget. By doing this, you will avoid a number of headaches.


If you have found your soul-mate in Ukraine and want to tie the knot with her, one of you will have to go abroad to make this dream come true. Hopefully, these tips will help you plan a perfect wedding that none of you will ever forget.
