How to Plan Your Wedding in Maastricht, Netherlands

Weddings are supposed to be magical, beautiful and unforgettable. Don’t settle for the classic wedding
venues, but take a magical trip to Maastricht Netherlands and have the wedding of a lifetime in one of
its exciting locations.

Maastricht is one of the oldest cities in Holland, with a rich culture, and historical locations. With monumental merchant houses, big churches, city walls, and big squares makes this country a perfect
destination for your wedding.

Planning a wedding in the Netherlands ensures you keep it nice and simple. In this country, weddings
are simple affairs, which are not exaggerated. Making it a big affair will raise eyebrows from the locals as
they are used to simple weddings.

It is perfect because you need not worry about a large wedding party that will stress you. They believe
that you don’t need a big extravagant event to celebrate the most important day of your life. A small
wedding will still be beautiful, personal and unique.

It can be the wedding of your dreams.

The other benefit of a destination wedding is that it takes care of the honeymoon venue at the same
time. You don’t have to plan your wedding in Maastricht, Netherlands, and then plan another destination for your honeymoon.

Invite us to your perfect dream wedding, with a professional wedding photographer in Maastricht to capture every moment and give you a lifetime of memories. We make your day all the more perfect with perfectly captured images that will blow your mind.

What to do for your wedding to run smoothly at the Netherlands;

1. Ensure You Take Care of the Legalities

You must make an appointment with your local ‘gemeente,’ two weeks prior to the wedding date, and
preferably 6 weeks before. At this meeting, you will give a notice of intention to marry, and talk to the
person who will officiate the wedding.

2. Decorations

In the Netherlands, you can rent vintage decorations, tables, tents, etc. for your wedding. Do this in
advance, and ensure you research well to be cost-effective.

3. Venues

The Netherlands is full of beautiful venues and destinations for your dream wedding. You should note,
however, that if you want a church wedding, this can only be done after the legal wedding has taken
place.
