Montenegro meaning “black Mountain” is one of the oldest European states with history dating back to the 9th century, and yet with it's independence from the former Yugoslavia in 2006, it's also an exciting new country to visit. With stunning scenery for your wedding photos and warm sunny weather, Montenegro lends itself to outdoor weddings. How about a romantic get away in a hot air balloon which can deliver you serenely to your honeymoon destination. With plenty of awe inspiring venues in which to host a reception, weddings abroad in Montenegro make your special day totally unforgettable.
Montenegro allows both civil and religious ceremonies and many couples choose both. The paperwork can be a bit fiddly so you may prefer to have the civil ceremony in your home country followed by a religious ceremony in Montenegro, then you don't have the worry of legalities. If you want to have the civil ceremony in Montenegro, however, you will both need full birth certificates, valid passports, as well as a certificate of non impediment and a declaration that you are both free to marry. All documents need to be translated into Montenegrin and notarised. You need to give about 40 days notice before your intended date, to the civil registry in Montenegro and once the paperwork has been approved, you are free to marry there or at an alternative venue.
