We are getting married in Europe and here only the civil or “paperwork” marriage is valid. That will be held end of this month but we plan on having a big church wedding in April. So basically we are having 2 weddings just a few months apart.
Any ideas on how to make the civil service look like a wedding without overdoing it – we dont want people to have Deja Vu next year but we still would like it to nice since thats when we officially become husband and wife.
Also what kind of outfit would you wear to the civil service? I dont want to wear my gown twice but everyday clothes seems a little tacky to me… any suggestions?
We live in europe, we arent just going there for our wedding… so the reason why we are having 2 weddings is because our friends and family back home cant afford it nor take leave to come over just yet so since we need to have 2 ceremonies anyway we are going ahead with the civil stuff and keeping the “nice” wedding to include everyone.
Also where we live, the civil service must be done at the Kommune. They wont preform it anywhere else like in the states.
