Somebody says that marriages are made in heaven and celebrated on earth. It is a special bond that shared between two souls. But if we are getting married abroad we don’t know about the procedures of marriage. Now we go through some of the procedures of marriage in Dubai

First you have to contact your embassy. There are no special rules and regulations for any nationalities. Each couple should contact their embassy or church to check their particular requirements like passport. Then you have to get help from a wedding planning consultant from Couture Events in Dubai.

Choose a venue
Second thing is you have to choose a place for the marriage ceremony. Mostly the Christian marriage takes place either in churches or in alternative venue provided that the place has the license for the ceremony. In Dubai, the embassy or consulate has the right to perform marriage ceremony. Islamic marriages will take place only in Islamic courts and British marriages will be conducted in churches. Only one thing that you have to remember is at least one member of the couple should been baptized in order to conduct the ceremony inside the church.
Prepare for the classes
After your marriage has been fixed you should have to attend some counseling classes. It gives some lessons about your marriage life. Both the bride and groom should attend the classes. In case of Catholic Church you should have to submit birth certificates and Christianity certificate
Issue of Certificate:
After the marriage, another big thing is the issue of marriage certificate. The marriage must take place within three months of the certificate being issued, otherwise it becomes invalid and the process has to be repeated in order to get a new one.
For register marriage in Dubai, marriage certificates have to be translated into Arabic before being submitted to the Dubai Courts, Ministry of Justice and the ministry of Foreign affairs for attestation and finally taken to the individual embassy to record and legalize the marriage in the home country itself.
