Your home or garden as an official wedding location
In the Netherlands you can officially give each other yes in many places, but (unfortunately) not yet everywhere! Most bridal couples get married at an official wedding location designated by the municipality , but if you have another place in mind, for example, your own house or garden, you must first arrange a few things! It is wise to check with your municipality what the rules are regarding a wedding location. Can you get married officially everywhere? Then you don’t have to do anything. Can you only give each other the yes in a place that has been designated by the municipality as an official wedding location? Then the municipality will have to designate your house or garden as a wedding location once! Also, pay attention to the rules about organizing a party and playing music until the early hours. Do you exist the guest list from a large group of people? Then it may just be that you have to report the wedding to the municipality! Make sure to check this in advance!
The measures surrounding COVID-19 have meant that many brides to behave to move their wedding. Very sour of course, because the day that you have been looking forward to for so long with your next one is now even longer! But have you ever thought about getting married at home? Of course, you have to take into account that 1.5 meters distance and a maximum of thirty people, but what if you have a very large garden and a wedding official is also available? Then you can ‘just’ say each other at home on the original wedding date during an intimate ceremony. You organize later, when everything is ‘normal’, then just organize a big fat party at the one you have chosen party location , so you can still celebrate the wedding with all your loved ones! No shot is always wrong, so be sure to ask your municipality about the possibilities of getting married at home during times of the Coronavirus!
