Wedding in Bulgaria

Wedding in Bulgaria and why would you need a wedding planner

Bulgaria is becoming more and more popular among the list of countries to visit and get married. With ancient mountains like Rila, Pirin and Vitosha which, by the way is located right next to the capital Sofia, it offers a unique experience for the ones that decide to get married here. It has the black sea located at only 400 km away from Sofia. Accessible by plane in both Varna and Burgas international airports. All of the above is highlighted by the friendly locals, easy access and breathtaking locations that could be used as a set-up for the wedding of your dreams.

When facing such an adventure in a completely unknown and foreign country, the best thing you can do is get the assistance of a professional wedding planner. The wedding planner will facilitate the entire process of planning the wedding, as well as explain all local law requirements to execute the wedding accordingly.

Wedding in Bulgaria what you must know

In accordance to Bulgarian code, there are two main types of marriages and only one of them is considered legal. The one recognized as legal by the law is the civil marriage. The religious ceremony, which is the second type of ceremony performed locally, has no legal status.

A civil marriage is usually recognized by foreign countries, however we recommend that a verification is made with the authorities of the respective country. In some situations, an annex issued by the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs could be required. That requires that some of the documents might need to be translated. Which is another reason to plan everything with enough time in advance, and we strongly recommend you to plan at least 4 to 5 months prior to the wedding itself.

How to organize a wedding in Bulgaria

One of the first problems you will encounter is the question, which of the local vendors are trustworthy. Which is another reason towards booking the wedding planner, as each reputable wedding planner would have a dedicated portfolio of all the a-list vendors that you can hire.

The wedding planner is the person that could wrap up the entire event and keep it within the dedicate budget, so that you could take care of the more important things and have some quality time to explore the new country rather than become strangled with the language barrier and all the difficulties surrounding a wedding preparation.

We will make sure to have a dedicated person that will assist you with the translation all the way and will be there for you to answer all your questions regarding the different stages of the wedding event.

We can arrange a visit to your preferred vendors prior to booking them so that you could experience the atmosphere, the service, the food and everything that’s important for you, so that you could feel comfortable all the way until the wedding event itself. By doing so, you will get the best service possible and there won’t be any unpleasant surprises that could ruin the wedding of your dreams.

On the wedding day itself, our wedding planner will navigate the entire event and manage it from start to finish. He’ll take care of all the different venues during the day, organize the different vendors and show them around. He will facilitate the entire celebration and make sure to react on the spot in a case of any unexpected changes. At the end of the day, hiring a wedding planner in a foreign country will save you money, rather than bring the total costs up.

Luxury wedding decoration

Throughout the years we’ve made lots of wedding decorations, from simple to sea weddings, to spectacular wedding events that people will be talking about for years to come. One of them is luxury weddings, which have an abundance of fresh flowers, crystals and veils. When attending such weddings, you often find yourself being “speechless”, your heart starts pounding and you feel like you are in a fairy tale. These are weddings, that every one of us is dreaming about, to see and attend one even for just a moment. The weddings we are about to tell you about are just like that -with luxury wedding decorations. We’ll keep the names of the bride and groom in privacy, but we’ll show you the amazing scenery that we were able to create for them.

So, let us begin…

This is your special day and you want to make it count. We know that you want the best out of everything to create a spectacular and amazing wedding day – and this is what you will get. If you’re into bling and sparkle and you would like the overall feeling of your wedding to be associated with luxury and elegance, these luxury decorations and fancy ideas will make your day special. Our modern and fancy decorations will come in handy for each bride, regardless of her style. Even a bride planning a country wedding or a boho style could use one of the below- mentioned ideas to elevate her wedding to the next level, by simply adding a few fresh details.

We used two different types of tables – one is round and the other is rectangular. The flowers and the decoration were also of two different kinds but mutual in style.

The main colors are white and green, classically enriched with a bit of blush and lots of crystals, to bring some class and style to the entire event. Candles are mandatory as well as flowers. Small warm lights around the arch will bring that romantic feeling and fairy tale atmosphere.

The bride and groom made their arrival over a specially made alley made out of mirrors and surrounded with flowers. The arch was massive and it was all covered in lights.

Luxury Wedding

The main request made by the bride was:

“Surround everything with lots of blossomed flowers, I want to feel like a princess!”

You should never limit yourself and how many flowers you use, especially if you are having a luxury wedding. Heavily decorated tables with lots of flowers and specifically the one of the newlyweds is the main idea behind luxury. This is what will bring that feeling of romance and beauty to your wedding day.

Dance floor and ceilings

Every detail of the decoration brings an emotion, that is specifically true about the dance floor and the ceilings. We are talking about ceilings covered with flowers, they left the guests speechless and brought that stunning detail to the rest of the wedding decoration. Veils on the walls, the star sky and the special altar were the “cherry on top”.

Huge compositions made of flowers were prepared for the church as well…
