Getting married abroad
Getting married in a far-away location may require early planning and preparation. To make sure your destination wedding is legal, it may be necessary to fulfill residency requirements, take blood/medical tests, or produce official documentation, such as birth certificates, divorce records, and valid U.S. passports.
The documentation may also need to be apostilled and translated. Because marriage license requirements can often change, it is important that you verify all information with the local office before making any wedding or travel plans. Before you start planning your destination wedding and especially before you make any deposits, make sure that you understand the laws and requirements that will apply.
It may be easy to find this information about the more famous destinations, but you'll also want to know whether the foreign marriage certificate you receive is valid back home.
