Budget, administrative formalities

Also forget about the long guest list, otherwise you will end up with a huge budget. The prices are all the higher since you can hardly organize anything yourself on site, and will therefore have to go through a service provider on site.
Administrative formalities vary and can be quite complex:
- for French Polynesia, the authorities will ask you for one month of residence, as well as a period of 10 days for the publication of the marriage banns.
Getting married officially therefore becomes a challenge, but you can opt for a symbolic ceremony, for this one count more than 1000 euros.
- for Mauritius and the Seychelles, you can get married, with a certain number of steps. The easiest way is to go through a local provider (ask the hotel where you will be staying) who will take care of everything for you. You will also need cookies.
Count between 500 and 1000 euros depending on the options selected. You can only get married after the 4th night there, for administrative reasons.
In any case, you will certainly be asked for photocopies of your passport, your birth certificates… rteach yourself not to spoil the party !
Recognition of marriage
Getting married in the islands is therefore feasible, if you have a substantial budget. and if you don't plan to invite many guests. Also pay attention to administrative formalities, these little paradises in no way escape the administrative rules.
Back in France, you can have your union recognized, according to article 47 of the civil code: “Any act of civil status of French people and foreigners, made in foreign countries, will be authentic if it has been drawn up in the forms used in the said country. "
