Destination | Egypt

For scope and grandeur, Egypt is a remarkable wedding destination. The Sphinx, the Nile, the Luxor, the Red Sea, the Valley of the Kings, the Western Desert... Egypt makes all of one's senses - including one's sense of history! - come alive.

For an Egyptian wedding, imagine a Bedouin camel trek to a palatial desert tent, with music and dancing all night in the shadow of a pyramid. Egypt was the first country to codify marriage laws, making the union both a civil and religious institution. Egypt offers a stunning array of options for couples who want to mix a sense of history with the exotic. Imagine a cruise down the Nile on a felucca (an Egyptian sailboat), or snorkeling in the Red Sea. Stand in the shadows of the Great Pyramids of Giza, or experience the riotous intensity of Cairo.

Currently, it is very difficult for foreigners to marry in Egypt. There is no guarantee that the Egyptian government will accept your documentation. In any case, there is no reason that a wedding ceremony and celebration can't be held in Egypt and the legal marriage be performed elsewhere. See the Marriage Requirements below for more information about this issue.
