Many wedding couples choose to be legally married in the United States, preceded or followed by a symbolic wedding ceremony in resort with family and friends. Symbolic weddings are less costly, and a great choice for busy couples that prefer to bypass the gathering and completion of documentation required for a legally-binding ceremony in a foreign country.
Check with the embassy/consulate of the country in which you are marrying (contact information provided below) for the most up-to-date information on documentation requirements and other restrictions for US citizens marrying in a foreign country.
