Most common Wedding questions
Should couples choose an expensive 2022 wedding in Dubai or Qatar?

There are many factors that dictate where a couple chooses for marriage. The average cost of goods and services is one of those essential requirements. Dubai is a wealthy nation and weddings in this location might entail a tangible amount of luxury.

Couples who want a 2022 wedding in Dubai or Qatar must factor in religion and the cost of the legal and ceremonial processes. Let us now look at the common things that couples can expect for marriage in these places. We will also see why Georgia can be considered a wedding destination.

Common expectations for a Dubai and Qatar wedding

The marriage processes in Dubai and Qatar are quite similar in nature. Both are Muslim entities and civil marriage is done according to Sharia rites. For residents who are not Muslims, the choices of a wedding in their religious outfits or embassies are available to them. 

Some important wedding requirements that might cost the couple some reasonable financial resources are;

  • The feeding of guests
  • The wedding venue and its decoration
  • Photography, and
  • Musical entertainment

Even though these factors look basic, they might be more expensive in Dubai and Qatar than in their home countries because of how hard it might be to get the right service providers. 

Georgia is another option that couples might want to examine. It is a free country that weds people no matter their religion. The registration process does not delay unnecessarily. So, those who do not have the capacity for a 2022 wedding in Dubai can opt for it.

Final remarks on Georgia as a wedding destination

Many couples can testify to the ease that the country of Georgia offered during their marriage process. A large number of applicants complete the registration within a day. If they want a small or large wedding, the process can be finalized in five days.

The more appealing fact about a wedding in Georgia is that venues like hotels, mountain settings, and parks can be afforded without breaking the bank. The couple also gets to experience a new country.

If you consider the facts and believe that a wedding in Georgia is excellent for you, book a consultation with our wedding agency. Our experts will help you to make the best decisions.

How much to plan a dream wedding in Georgia

Being one of the most significant events in a person’s life, it’s not all that surprising that you would dream about your special day and find yourself awash in wonder or even worry when you wake up the next morning. For you and your partner to celebrate and bring together two families and lives, your wedding should be the perfect event.

We have gathered some ideas below for your affordable dream wedding planning! This article discusses how much it cost to plan a dream wedding in Georgia.

One of the smaller GCC countries, Qatar, boasts beautiful scenery, but because of the warm temperatures and the hassle of making reservations, there aren’t many possibilities for lodging. This is why it is advisable for Qatar expats to consider a destination wedding in Georgia!

Cost to plan a dream wedding in the city

The choice is yours to arrange a lovely ceremony in Georgia’s historic and vibrant capital, Tbilisi, or amidst the historical landscapes of Mtskheta. Tbilisi extends along the Mtkvari River’s banks. Mountains surround it on three sides. It beautifully depicts a city that spans ages and is harmoniously intertwined with the modern era.
One of Georgia’s oldest cities, Mtskheta, is another option for your big day. It is situated near the confluence of the Mtkvari and Aragvi Rivers, about 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of Tbilisi. Additionally, UNESCO has listed it as a World Heritage Site. Mtskheta has been inhabited since 1,000 BC when it served as the early Kingdom of Iberia’s (today’s Eastern Georgia) capital. In contrast to the faster-paced, the picturesque old town offers a relaxed, rustic atmosphere. From your wedding arch to the transportation to your destination, our crew will take care of everything.

Verdict

Despite its stunning surroundings, Qatar is one of the smaller GCC countries, offering limited venue options. If you want to exchange vows in a distinctive setting, think about having a destination wedding. However, the choice is yours. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring family and friends together while also gratifying their wanderlust and desire to experience other cultures. Georgia is the perfect location for a destination wedding due to its natural beauty and pleasantly affordable wedding packages. Georgia offers great weather conditions as compared to Qatar and is close to various GCC countries.

Legal marriage process for Qatar expats moving to Canada

Are you a Qatar expat planning to create a family and a new life in Canada and have questions regarding the legal marriage process? Read the full article and we will provide you with the best recommendations for a stress-free experience.

Immigration laws in Canada

Couples who have never lived together have limited options for bringing someone into Canada as their legally recognized spouse. The only option is a legally recognized marriage in which both of you were physically present.

If you and your partner live in a GCC country, you should be aware of the challenges of getting married there. Many couples have chosen alternative options such as going to Georgia or even getting married online. If you want to move to Canada, however, getting married online is not the best option.

Why doesn’t Canada accept online weddings?

Prior to 2015, Canada permitted marriages done online when one or both spouses were not physically present for immigration purposes. The only stipulation was that the marriage is legally recognized in the country in which it occurred.

The Canadian government, on the other hand, no longer recognizes this. The prohibition of internet marriage was made primarily to address women’s vulnerability in the immigration situation.

Recommendation to have a legal marriage in Canada as a Qatar expat

Virtual marriage is not recognized as valid in Canada. However,  many countries, like Georgia, Seychelles, and the United Arab Emirates (for non-Muslims), provide simple wedding options. These countries have less paperwork and are better suited for foreigners who want to get married quickly and without hassle.

Requirements to give birth in the UAE for Qatar couple – Pregnancy law and advice

Many foreigners move to the UAE in order to improve their living conditions. If you were one of those, you would already be aware that you would face some difficulties in relocating to the UAE. Strict laws on pregnancy, marriage and unmarried cohabitation are among the major concerns. Although the UAE has modified the rules, current studies and trends show that a marriage certificate is still required if you want a child with a legal birth certificate and health insurance coverage. 

This post also discusses the best way to marry if you are facing pregnancy before marriage in the UAE.

Possible complications you can face if you are pregnant outside of marriage

As previously stated, if you are pregnant without marriage, you may face additional complications even after the new legislation is implemented. It may be difficult to obtain medical insurance and a birth certificate for your newborn. Hospitals may continue to contact the police in order to discuss your case with the Personal Status Court.

If the couple wants to obtain their baby’s legal birth certificate, they must submit an authentic wedding certificate, according to one of the UAE government’s official websites. Furthermore, according to the DHA, medical insurance does not cover unmarried maternity treatment (Dubai Health Authority).

Giving birth in UAE

Giving birth in the UAE has to happen in a hospital or clinic. In order to secure admission, the parents have to produce the following:

  • Mother’s and father’s Emirates IDs and passports
  • Health insurance card or full advance payment (if you are paying in cash)
  • Parents’ marriage certificates attested by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Register a birth in UAE

After your baby is born, you have a maximum of 30 days to register his/her birth. To obtain a birth certificate – which is needed to register a birth – the following documents have to be submitted, either to the hospital/clinic where the child is born (if it’s a government one) or the concerned health authority (if it’s a private one) in the emirate of your residence:

  • An attested Arabic translated marriage certificate (if the original is in a different language);
  • Original and copy of husband’s and wife’s passport and residence visa;
  • Birth notification (issued by the hospital)

After obtaining a birth certificate, the Ministry of Health of Prevention and Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation must attest to it.

In conclusion, what is the best solution if you are pregnant without a marriage certificate

If you are pregnant in the UAE in 2022, you can have a destination wedding. Getting married in Georgia is the most common and efficient option. In addition to receiving a genuine marriage certificate, the entire process can be completed in a matter of days.

It’s critical to remember that under the new regulations, unmarried pregnancy is no longer a legal crime in the UAE. However, you don’t want to be a victim of a situation in which you are unable to obtain valid birth or maternity insurance.
