My recommended travel agencies can all help you with travel arrangements for your wedding and/or honeymoon, but my friends at Travel Atelier have their own wedding department and can also help with all the legal requirements: the documents, permits and licenses, that you need to be legally married in Turkey. (Most travel agencies are not able to help with this.) More...

If you're lucky, during your visit to Turkey you may even be invited to participate in a local traditional wedding (if there's on happening when you're in Turkey). At Turkish weddings, everyone's invited!


TurkeyWeddings.com is a partner company to TurkeyTravelPlanner.com (TTP) and takes especially good care of wedding planners coming to them from TTP. They can answer any questions you may have about legal procedures for marrying in Turkey, and they are highly skilled at helping you to complete the necessary paperwork, sometimes in as little as three days. Be sure to mention TTP when you contact TurkeyWeddings.com so they know to extend extra courtesies. More...
