CONGRATS ON YOUR UPCOMING WEDDING!
symbolic destination wedding ceremonies are soaring in popularity.
A symbolic wedding will look exactly like a legal wedding. The only difference is that you will sign a paper of no legal significance (but that can be your little secret).

Symbolic ceremonies offer a little more flexibility due to the nature of not being a government officiated marriage.
A symbolic ceremony is best for couples that want to have a knot tying ceremony, sand ceremony, vow renewal ceremony or to take a selfie at the altar.

According to the French law system, in order to conduct an official wedding ceremony couple should have spent in France not less than 30 days.

Many couples simply get legally married at home before or after their symbolic destination wedding.
