Switzerland weddings. The phrase itself brings to mind snowcapped mountains, beautiful flowers and loads of romance. Getting married in Switzerland is a dream come true for many. The beautiful scenery ensures that this very romantic of destinations is quite popular for weddings.
What is amazing about Switzerland is its great flexibility in terms of the weather. A winter wedding is a fairytale one, with the Alps covered in a blanket of snow. There are several lakes which freeze over, offering a beautiful setting or a backdrop for your wedding. In summer, Switzerland is home to beautiful flowers all over the mountain passes. The countryside too has many a beautiful bloom.
Of course, if a rustic wedding isn't your style, you can settle for one of those ultra modern Switzerland weddings in extremely cosmopolitan cities like Geneva. Geneva's fantastic architecture and world famous hospitality make it an extremely popular pick for weddings. But, personally I suggest getting married in the Alps, because that is what Switzerland is known for. There are many ski resorts you can head over to, for your marriage.
Getting married in the country of Switzerland is not hard. Indeed, it is quite simple because you aren't required to get any sort of blood tests done and neither do you need to fulfill any residency requirements. All you need to do is give certain documents verifying your identity to the civil authorities in the area in which you desire to get married. It will just take a little bit of time to get your paperwork processed and then (depending on the location of your marriage) you might have to get your wedding banns read and you'll be good to go.
Take care to ensure that your wedding is performed at the City hall because this will ensure that it is legal. After this of course, you are free to have a religious ceremony in one of Switzerland's many beautiful churches.
The cuisine too, will delight your guests' palate. Switzerland, after all, is known for its cooks! What is more, you will be sure to find a menu which will fit your budget. From sophisticated French cuisine, to simple country fare, you can choose anything. But whatever you do, make sure that chocolate features prominently on your dessert menu! Switzerland is after all, known for its chocolates! So if you're looking for destination weddings, then Switzerland weddings are just the thing for you, start planning today!
