Small wedding in Istanbul

Posted in Istanbul, Turkey

My fiance and I live in Colorado but are planning a trip to Istanbul where we plan to get married. We have two other guests traveling with us for the wedding and are looking for a recommended local wedding planner and venue ideas in the city. We do not want to get married in a hotel or restaurant but are hoping for either a scenic view or a historical site. Any suggestions or recommendations?

Hi there

My son is getting married in Istanbul in September and there is a lot of paperwork and legal stuff to be done including medicals etc so it might be worth checking that all out...it seems to take quite a while!

You can try Kız Kulesi (Maidens Tower) which is actually in the middle of Bosphorous. Its historical, a restaurant yet quite different. www.kizkulesi.com.tr

or another choice can be www.bosphoruspalace.com again a hotel, rest but also a historical palace..

My wife an I did the ceremony on a boat on the Bosporus--I can't over-recommend a sunset ceremony on the water of the Bosporus! But there's many other beautiful places to go. Even though you don't want to do a hotel, if it's within your budget, you may want to at least consider looking at some of the hotels on the waterfront: they're exquisite. Sorry I can't help with wedding planner suggestions.

As for the legal marriage, we did that separately in a marriage hall in Sisli, a district of Istanbul. But Yvonne is right, Turkey's very bureaucratic and getting through the marriage hoops takes a while, especially if you're a foreigner. In particular, some marriage offices give you a hard time about proving that you're single--the right answer is to sign a statement in front of a consular official that comes in English and Turkish, but less experience marriage officials view the document suspiciously...

Thank you for the advice -- we have been doing some research regarding the legal aspect of the marriage and we plan to be in Istanbul several days before the ceremony to ensure all the paperwork goes through. Does anyone know any of the costs to expect with the paperwork? What was the cost for a wedding on a boat?

For some perspecitve, we had 50 guests and paid roughly 5000 YTL for the boat, which included dinner and drinks for all guests. We got the boat for about 3-4 hours and it left from in front of Bahçeşehir University. We spent extra for a cake and brought our own music. We also did an unconventional ceremony and had our brother/sister administer the vows. So I don't know what that would cost...

We all know about catfishing, which is like putting the carrot before a https://adultchatdatingsites.com/backdoor-dating-app/ donkey but never really letting it take a bite. No one wants such an experience. The online dating environment on Facebook and other social networking sites can be notorious for people who feign interest but in the end, they bailout. Most people would rather opt for a sure bet rather than wait for goodies that might not come.

A wedding is always wonderful! I met my boyfriend in a horny gay chat After we decided to live together, we realized that we had no time for ceremonies. You can even make a wedding on the beach and it will be the most unforgettable event in your life. Pomposity doesn't always bring happiness.
