IS IT TRULY EASY TO HAVE AN EASY WEDDING ONLINE?

Because of the COVID-19 tight restrictions, many countries began to provide their citizens the option of an easy wedding online. Who is an easy wedding online for? Is that, however, legal? Which are the requirements? Keep on reading to get answers to all the above questions.

Online Wedding in short

Marrying online is very easy. What a couple needs to do is only present a few required documents and follow very easy rules. 

Weddings were before only legally valid if the couple appears in person in front of the officiant. Now it’s possible to hire a legal officiant in any country that allows online weddings. As a result, couples are not required to legally marry in the country in which they currently reside. The documents required are:

  • Identity proof (such as a license or passport)
  • The name, birthplace, and date of birth (DOB, full name, birth state)
  • Documentation of the previous divorce or death of the partner (if applicable)
  • Money for the marriage license fee.


So, who is an easy wedding online for? For those who have very strict time available, such as crew members, but also for those who cannot travel, or need to sponsor their partner to come live with them, or have families living abroad but want them to witness the wedding.

How to Have an Easy Wedding Online?

Nowadays, streaming platforms can be found almost anywhere. Zoom stands out as the most user-friendly option because links are easy to send to all guests and participants.

How to legalize an Online wedding?

After receiving the wedding certificate from the marriage registrar, the certificate undergoes a local legalization process at the respective Ministries and Apostille. Additionally, if the nation in which couples reside is not a signatory to the Apostille Convention, couples must bring the certificate to the appropriate embassy for attestation.
