Wedding in Georgia for Israelis

You want your destination wedding to go perfectly, but you are afraid of the difficulties associated with organization and document preparation? Congratulations! You have found a solution to this problem 🙂 Ori Wedding Agency is ready to relieve you of all time-consuming duties. From start to finish we will guide you through all the stages of preparing your holiday.

Georgia is a unique country not only because it is a magical mixture of stunning natural landscapes, hospitable people and rich cuisine, but also a place where bureaucracy is minimized. Couples from all over the world fly here to marry without burdening themselves with difficulties in paperwork. And in recent years, Georgia has become particularly popular among couples from Israel. In this article, we decided to figure out the reasons for their choice and share with you some tips on planning a wedding in Georgia.

Why do couples from Israel choose Georgia?

Georgia is a hospitable and tolerant country. Any guest is welcome here, regardless of his or her religion or nationality. On the streets of the capital, you can hear people speaking different languages and find representatives of all countries and cultures. Having decided to hold your wedding in Georgia, you will not encounter any political or religious obstacles here. Whatever citizenship you have, in Georgia you will easily and quickly register your marriage. Getting all documents ready and official marriage registering will not take you much time and effort.

A wedding in Georgia is less expensive than in other countries: on average, registration for Israel citizens will cost from $270. Even taking into account air tickets and a wedding banquet for your guests, a wedding in Georgia will be much more affordable than in Israel or other European countries. For example, a dinner for two in the capital costs from $90. For the inhabitants of Israel, this mountainous country is an ideal place for a wedding because it is relatively close. Direct flights from Tel Aviv fly every day, and the flight will take only 2.5 hours.

Georgia also has a large selection of wedding opportunities. Imagine yourself on the pier of a mountain lake, which is surrounded by snow-covered caps of the Greater Caucasus or in a medieval fortress in the middle of a forest, in sunny vineyards or on a rocky coast… Your wedding can be held in any of these fabulous locales. Georgian cuisine has an ancient history and impresses with its taste palette. If you are planning a dinner for relatives and friends, we will help you make the most comfortable version of the menu, which will take into account all the preferences of your guests. Some restaurants in Tbilisi, for example, can provide banquets following the kosher traditions.

What needs to be done to get married in Georgia?

First, you need to set a date for the wedding. Then contact us at least two weeks before the celebration, so that we begin to prepare all the documents. Make color scans of your passports, issue a power of attorney at a notary public in the name of your wedding planner and send them to us by email. In Israel, a notary public places an Apostille, so when you do the power of attorney, do not forget to put an Apostille and certify all the necessary documents.

Additional documents:

  • If you have previously been married or have a common minor child: clear scans of a copy of the divorce certificate, scans of a copy of the birth certificate of a child, which must bear an Apostille and be certified by a notary.
  • Clear scans of the passports of two witnesses. If only two of you will arrive, no problem — we will provide the witnesses.

You don’t need to apply for a visa to come to Georgia: residents of most countries can stay there for a year without registration.

After the end of your celebrations, within 2-4 weeks, we will send you a registered letter with a marriage certificate in English. Unfortunately, a Hebrew translation by a translator who is not located in Israel cannot be recognized by the state. You can use the services of a certified translator in Israel or leave your certificate in English. It is also valid because names are duplicated in English in Israel passports.

How to choose a place for a wedding?

To choose a venue for your wedding, tell us about your preferred holiday format (open-air ceremony, classic civil registration at a registry office or a large party until the down) and the number of guests (will it be a wedding for two or a cozy evening with friends and loved ones). Depending on your wishes, we will select for you the most appropriate version of the locale.

The capital of Georgia is a city with a long history. Each street of Tbilisi is saturated with love, and the city slogan states: “Tbilisi is the city that loves you”. Go on a photo walk through the old town and you will easily see it. Walk along the narrow cobbled streets, examine the facades of small fabulous houses trimmed with stucco and carved balconies, stop by each courtyard. It is said that in the old part of the city you cannot find two identical balconies: so unique architecture of each building is! After a walk in this colorful area, you will have beautiful wedding photographs as a nice memory.

Georgia is recognized as the birthplace of winemaking, and it is the eastern region of Kakheti that is the cradle of this ancient tradition. If you decide to conduct field registration outside the city, you can do it in one of the many sunlit vineyards, on the bank of a picturesque lake, in a cozy chateau or even in a mysterious medieval castle. The choice is truly limitless. Here you can also please yourself and your guests with a wine tasting, go on a tour to the ancient monasteries or ride a horse. And if you come from September to October, you will take part in the traditional harvest feast Rtveli. We are convinced: sunny Kakheti is the warmest region of fertility and cordiality.

For a summer wedding, the best option is the alpine region of Kazbegi — the place where Europe’s highest mountains live. Celebrate this momentous day on a spacious terrace under a low sky, strewn with stars and the bright Milky Way. Like in romantic movies! In Georgia, you can easily become the main characters of a beautiful film about love. 🙂

We can talk about the natural diversity of this country infinitely. Almost everything is possible in Georgia. Share your ideas and dreams with us, and we will do the rest.

What needs to be done to get married in Georgia?

When you decide on the date of your celebration, just send us an on-line request to organize your wedding at least two weeks before the scheduled date. We need only color scans of your passports. For couples planning an onsite registration in one of the regions of the country, it will also be necessary to prepare a legalized and notarized power of attorney in the name of your wedding planner. If you have any difficulties with issuing a power of attorney, then you just need to come two days before the scheduled wedding date and apply for marriage registration in one of the registry offices of Tbilisi.

Other documents that may also be needed:

  • If you have a residence permit in the UAE: clear and colour scans of the document.
  • If you have previously been married or have a common minor child: clear scans of a copy of the divorce certificate, scans of a copy of the birth certificate of a child, which must be legalized and certified by a notary.
  • Clear scans of the passports of two witnesses. If only two of you will arrive, no problem — we will provide witnesses.

The marriage registration procedure takes no more than a couple of hours. Legalization of a marriage certificate for the UAE on average will take from 2 to 4 weeks. When the documents are ready and translated, we will send them to you by registered mail to any address convenient to you.

How to choose a place for a wedding?

But do not miss the opportunity to get to know Georgia a little closer, because the memories of this day will be even brighter. Right after the registration, you can walk along the cobbled streets of the old city and feel all historical layers of this ancient city. In the center of Tbilisi, there are famous baths on natural sulfur springs. Be sure to take a couple of pictures in front of this colorful place.

There is also a real city of love in Georgia — Sighnaghi. Its registry office works around the clock, like in Las Vegas! 🙂 How many romantic stories this sun-drenched city keeps in the eastern region of Kakheti! From the walls of the city fortress, there is a stunning view of the famous Alazani Valley. It is so large that on the horizon it completely dissolves in the warm southern sky.

Why Choose a Wedding Planner?

Every couple who decides to plan a wedding faces this essential question: should they do it themselves or is it better to hire a professional? Some couples consider that planning on their own is an exciting adventure to the world of restaurants, photographers and bouquets. Others find event organization time-consuming and complicated. In these cases, wedding planner is definitely an answer: it will surely save you from losing your mind in a pre-holiday fuss and added stress. In this article, we talk about those difficulties which might arise while you arrange a wedding on your own. We reflect on how wedding planner deals with these challenges and illustrate it with some examples.

Wedding planner = experience

Event organization on your own is typically characterized by lack of experience in the field. Even if you are a hair and makeup artist or you have a friend who is a designer. Many people get very enthusiastic about such new tasks as they are challenging, inspiring and invigorating. They will also bring you a couple of unforgettable stories which you’ll be able to share with your friends later, over a cup of tea.

But these stories might be not that pleasant sometimes. We’ve been told about several cases where an inexperienced couple has chosen an unreliable photographer (or a friend who had just a part-time job as a photographer) and ended up losing all the materials because of the photographer’s irresponsibility. One mistake can ruin weeks of all your hard work.

Professional wedding planner will spare you such mistakes. They have done all the mistakes before they started working with you :). The team have become experts in what they do. Wedding planner knows which seasonal flowers will wither before they are even placed on the ceremony arch. Wedding planner knows what unexpected difficulties each region might offer. That is why a planner always thinks through Plan B so that a sudden rain doesn’t spoil your beautiful feast in the mountains or in the vineyards. A planner will also know what to do in case of emergency. When a wedding cake falls down right on the floor, they will quietly replace it and nobody will notice the change. Sometimes our planners become florists, tailors, psychiatrists and even meteorologists! We’ve been through a lot, and we are ready for almost everything. 

Experienced wedding planner will help you plan your budget wisely: they will stay within your preferred budget, without compromising the overall quality. As the main goal of the team is not to benefit but to achieve guaranteed result, create lifelong memories. Wedding expert thoroughly calculates all expenses which helps you to avoid unreasonable spending. 

A planner will also know what to do in case of emergency. When a wedding cake falls down right on the floor, they will quietly replace it and nobody will notice the change.


Wedding planner = knowledge of the venues

Choosing a wedding venue is an essential step in your wedding planning. This might be the most difficult task for couples who plan their distance wedding. Unfortunately, few hotel and restaurant web-sites provide credible and realistic photos of their venues, so quite often they don’t help you to create a whole picture of the place. Also, you have surely been in the situation when image doesn’t correspond with the reality at all. To save the situation, find a couple of friends who have visited some of these places and ask them to share their thoughts and impressions with you. Vivid images and personal experience will help you get a better idea of these venues.

When you hire a wedding planner, you get not just a person who has been at all the wedding venues in the country, but also – and this is more important – knows them from the inside. Our team members, for example, regularly examine the quality of the services our partners offer: they visit restaurants together with their friends and relax in the hotels with their families. We recommend only those places which we have verified ourselves.

Wedding planner will not miss any important details which your friends might accidentally leave out. He/she will draw your attention to those advantages which can seem insignificant at first glance (convenient walking routes for your beautiful wedding photos), and point to not so obvious disadvantages (long distance from the airport). After a careful overview of the venue’s features and thorough discussion with your planner, you will surely get exactly what you were expecting to see. The reality will be just as you have dreamed about it for months or even years.

Wedding planner = a trustworthy team of vendors

Planning a distance wedding poses a risk of collaboration with amateurs or unconscientious vendors. Even if you have chosen someone on the recommendations of your acquaintances, you can never be sure that you will get what you’ve agreed about in the first place. Wedding agency located right in your chosen country, among others, has one significant advantage: the team communicates with all the contractors in person. Experienced wedding agency maintains relationships with those partners who have proved to be responsible and reliable. That is why, while signing a contract with a wedding planner, you sign a contract with a numerous team of trustworthy vendors in all fields.

Wedding planner = confidence and tranquillity

Contract provides guarantees. We always sign a contract with our couples, so we commit ourselves to have full responsibility for services we provide. If anyone involved in your wedding organization has an emergency right on your big day, we immediately provide a substitute of the same quality. As we must make sure that all the details of your wedding are under control. Also, wedding planner sticks to a strict schedule, and we even control each contractor from the moment they leave home till the moment they fully provide their services.

Rely on a wedding planner and you will spare yourself trouble and concern. There will be no worries whether your guests don’t get wet under a heavy rain in the mountains or whether there is enough food and wine for everybody. Let your thoughtful wedding planner manage any arising issues and clear your mind for the most beautiful thoughts. All you have to do is just relax and enjoy, while we take care of nice weather, delicious food and cool photos!

Registry Offices of Tbilisi

Many couples dream of an original wedding abroad, surrounded by ancient rich culture and beautiful nature of Georgia. Some of the couples prefer to complete all formal procedures in their own country, and go to Georgia just to organize symbolic ceremony and wedding dinner. But not all the newlyweds have heard that Georgia has one of the most simplified procedures of marriage registration. Registration at the Georgian State Registry Office will no longer seem such a complicated task.

Which registry office to choose? What is the difference between them and what is important to take into consideration while submitting the application? In our new article we answer all these questions. Сhoosing a registry office for your wedding now becomes a quick and easy step on the way to your big dream.

General info

There are three registry offices in Tbilisi which provide a civil marriage procedure to the foreign citizens. The main differences between them are their location, interior and price. Normally, the price for the business days is lower than the price for the weekend, so at this stage you will have an opportunity to optimize your wedding budget. Below we are going to talk about private ceremonies which you need to pay for, but firstly we would also like to mention a ceremony in the public hall of the Justice House. This will be free for you, but the entire process of submitting the application and waiting time might last from a couple of hours to the whole day. Thus, unfortunately, we cannot guarantee to our couples that they will have a quick and comfortable procedure here. The paid private ritual, otherwise, will take you just 20 minutes! After a short and pleasant ceremony in the elegant hall, you can continue your feast at the photo shoot in the narrow streets of Tbilisi or at the cozy dinner with a splendid night view of the old city.

The Justice House

Apart from the public hall, there is a closed private hall for wedding ceremonies in the Justice House. This hall has its own separate entrance, hidden from the public. You will enter this beautiful room to the solemn music and no one will violate the significance of this instant. The private hall has been fully renovated recently: now it is designed in a modern style with the use of white, beige and blue colours. Decorations of fresh flowers add softness and tenderness to the overall interior. By the way, just right near the House of Justice there is the Dedaena park (park of the mother tongue) and a popular tourist sight, The Dry Bridge with its colourful flea market. After having the ceremony, you can visit these lovely places, take some nice pictures and then move to the city centre.

Konka Registry Office

The second registry office we’d like to tell you about is located not far away from the famous Gabriadze Theatre, right in the heart of the old city. The building of the Konka Registry Office was constructed in 1897, which makes it the oldest registry office in the entire country. Its rooms are regularly renovated, but the initial authenticity and unique ancient style of the place stay as charming as always. This registry office will be suitable for couples who want to celebrate the creation of their family being surrounded by the traditional Georgian style. Here, on the balcony of the building, you may also start your photo shot: its carved arches and patterned banisters will become a perfect background for your first wedding photos. The location of this registry office is also convenient: within just a ten minutes walk, you reach the mystical labyrinths of Tbilisi, covered with centuries-old cobblestone and filled with tiny Italian courtyards.

Mtatsminda Registry Office

If you dream of a quiet ceremony in harmony with nature, we’d recommend you to take a look at the third registry office in Tbilisi: it is situated on mount Mtatsminda, in the park with the same name. Stepping inside this registry office, you find yourself in a spacious glass hall surrounded by amazing wood from all angles. Imagine how harmonious and peaceful your ceremony will in such a placid location: panoramic windows, classical interior, light colours in decor, dense forest, rich mountain air, filled with the smell of pine trees… A ceremony inspired by the beautiful tranquility of nature!

Mtatsminda registry office also offers wonderful locations for your wedding photo shoot. During your photo walk around the park, you could go to the viewing point, for example, and take amazing pictures in front of the ancient city frozen in tranquil summer bliss. We also need to note that ceremony at this registry office formally is an onsite registration, that is why its price is higher than the price for the ceremony in the Justice House or Konka registry office.

Georgia is about love

Apart from the registry offices of Tbilisi, we also work with other towns, such as Sighnaghi, Batumi, Kvareli, Kazbegi. We will be glad to find the most convenient registry office option in accordance with the wedding venue you will choose. As the official language of marriage procedures is Georgian, at your request, we could also arrange for the presence of an interpreter to any language you would prefer your ceremony to be held in. If you’d like to read about all the formal stages of civil marriage in Georgia, we recommend that you also check our article.

To conclude our review, we’d like to share with you one beautiful ancient wedding custom, which you become part of when you register your marriage in Georgia. All the newlyweds, having the civil ceremony here, receive a traditional present – a deluxe edition of Shota Rustaveli’s book called “The Knight in the Panther’s Skin” and a bottle of champagne :). This classic Georgian poem is meant to symbolize the harmony in relationships between men and women. This is the book that was traditionally presented by a father to his daughter when she was getting married: the poem was supposed to become the first book in their new family library. As there is a reason why they say family is one of the main holy values in Georgian culture.

See you in the country of love!

Official Marriage Registration in Georgia

Collecting The Documents

Have you decided to officially register your marriage in Georgia? There is nothing easier. Georgia recently became one of the top five countries where marriage registration does not require a lot of documents from various institutions. Now we will tell you how easy, simple and fast is the procedure to become husband and wife in Georgia, while having some time to enjoy the sights of the Georgian capital. So, let’s begin!

The first thing we need to start preparing for the registration of your marriage is to find out the desired date and time for registration, as well as to receive the documents listed below:

  • Clear scans of passports of the bride and groom (photos are no longer accepted by Georgian notaries);
  • Clear scans of passports of two witnesses (if there is only two of you, no problem: we will provide the witnesses);
  • Clear scans of a copy of the divorce certificate, which must be apostilled and certified by a notary in your country of residence (this document is necessary if you were previously married);
  • Clear scans of a copy of the birth certificate of a common minor child, which must be apostilled and certified by a notary in your country of residence (this document is needed if you have a common minor child).

Once we receive and check all the necessary documents, we will proceed to the next step: according to Georgian legislation, all the documents mentioned above must be translated into Georgian and certified by Georgian notary. Therefore, all the documents will be ready by your arrival and the desired date and time will be booked by your wedding planner.

Choosing a Location

There are three ways to register marriage in Georgia: it all depends on how fast, solemn and romantic your ceremony should be. Registration in the hall of the House of Justice looks like this: you need to come in the morning, stand in a queue, submit an application to an operator, wait from two to four hours until your wedding planner receives an official message on a mobile phone that the documents have been checked, confirmed and you are given permission to register your marriage. At this time we usually let our couple go for a walk in the centre of the city. Then you  should stand again in a queue and finally register the marriage with the help of the operator.

Such registration takes approximately one business day, but there is no romance in it. For example, a ceremony in a private hall of one of the two Wedding Palaces, where you come 40 minutes before the ceremony, looks absolutely different. Officials fill in the documents, check and print your marriage certificate, and it takes 30-40 minutes. Then you are invited to the ceremonial hall, the receptionist delivers a touching speech while there is a romantic melody as a background. You sign papers, exchange wedding rings and congratulate each other with a glass of cold champagne. Solemnly, touchingly, and most importantly — quickly. The whole procedure takes 50-60 minutes, and you are absolutely free afterwards.

As for the most touching ceremony (it is called “ceremony outside the wedding hall”), you have to choose the location and time (from 10 AM to 5 PM), and we book the official. It is important to note that for such ceremony you need to send us an application (an apostilled and certified by notary power of attorney one) to fill in two weeks before the date of marriage registration (together with the  documents mentioned above). At the appointed time, the official arrives and gives a solemn speech, registers the marriage and hands over to you the marriage certificate at any place in Georgia: on a terrace overlooking to Old Tbilisi, in the vineyards in Kakheti, on the shore of one of the lakes in Kvareli, or on a platform over a cliff in the mountains of Kazbegi.

The Final Step

Once your marriage is registered, we proceed to the third (final) step — legalization of marriage for your country or countries (you can legalize your marriage for any number of countries you prefer). There are two types of marriage legalization: apostille (valid for 136 countries) and consular legalization (valid for all other countries). If your country has signed the Apostille Convention, the procedure will take from one to eight business days. It depends on how urgently you need your documents to be ready — urgency implies a high fee. If your country has not signed the Apostille Convention, it needs consular legalization. And these are two stages: the accreditation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia and the seal of the country’s consul for which the marriage is legalized. This procedure takes from ten business days to one calendar month: it depends on the location of the consulate of the desired country and the queue for legalization.

Please note that in parallel with legalization, the House of Justice translates your marriage certificate into the desired language: we recommend English to our couples, as it is accepted in all countries.

We usually  send the documents by express mail to your address, or we give them to you personally if you are in Georgia after completion of all procedures with the legalization of the marriage certificate.

How to choose a wedding venue?

The main thing is to choose where the magic will happen, to mark whether you need official marriage documents or not, decide on the season – in this aspect we will always advise you, since we are closely familiar with the climate in different regions – and understand how eventful the event will be. Sometimes it happens that initially a couple is coming  alone, and closer to the wedding date we find out that parents, for example, or close friends will attend the celebration and share their most important day with the couple.

Choosing the region and location for the ceremony and wedding dinner is not an easy task if you are not going visit Georgia before the wedding. Ori Wedding Team is always ready to tell you in detail about the features of both the region,  hotels and restaurants that you are considering. We have many years of experience, and we know the subtleties and all the pitfalls that can be hidden behind a beautiful picture in the Internet space.

It is important that the accommodation of the couple and guests is in the closest accessibility to the location of the wedding dinner. It is always better to choose one settlement: village, town, district. Wedding dinner ends no earlier than 01:00 am, so getting to the hotel or apartment late at night after a busy celebration day is an extremely tedious process, and this must be taken into account.

Planning the details

After you have chosen the place-time-number of guests – we are happy to start a discussion of details that will make your wedding day beautiful, namely: floristry and decor, make-up and hair for the bride, the mode of transport for the couple and guests, cake, details on buffet and dinner, and, of course, an entertainment program for the whole day. We will discuss a solemn speech for your ceremony in advance, pronouncing all the details of the script with a specially invited Emcee. The list of songs both for the ceremony and for the wedding dinner program is discussed, edited and the final result, including the stop list, is transferred to the DJ.

If you have not yet chosen the color pallet for the wedding day, if you also can’t imagine how the wedding cake of your dreams should look like and what hairstyle will make you the real queen – we will always be there for  you and facilitate the task with advice and photo samples to make the right decision. We always recommend to arrive in advance and hold a rehearsal of the bride image with the stylist.

Planner and couple need to discuss a large number of nuances, pronouncing the details of the wedding dinner and entertainment program. We check with our couple the preferences of guests regarding alcohol, allergies, or belonging to vegetarianism. We take into account the number of children at the table, having previously specified their age. This helps us to make a children’s menu in advance and to take care of the availability of cots in the rooms and child seats in the transport.

Scenario for dinner is also created according to the preferences of the couple. We connect the Emcee with a couple via Skype video messenger for a detailed discussion of quizzes, contests, toasts. It is important that the couple get information from the guests in advance whether they have a surprise congratulation for the newlyweds – The Emcee must include the guests’ performances in their program in advance so that they can avoid the intended script on their wedding day.

It does not matter when you contacted  us: six months, a month or two weeks before the wedding – we will surround you with care and do our best to endear yourself and make you feel at home, while discussing with us the smallest details of the most important day of your life…

We sincerely hope that Georgia will become your second home after the wedding with the Ori Wedding team!
