Spain was the third country to permit same-sex unions. Costa del Sol is the place to soak it up. Think siestas by day, flamenco (the dance of love and passion) by night, and picnics of olives and sparkling wine in between. The beach town of Mojacar, a stone’s throw down the coast, is Spain’s booming, queer-friendliest town. The town has two locations, the city on the hill, which is characterized with white washed homes, and gives you the feel of Greece.
The other location is the beach front, and there are many private beaches along the path that are beautiful for your next Gay Wedding.

Choose a destination
First, you should decide on a few places for your gay wedding and investigate the authenticity of the marriage.
Sort out the documentation
Documents such as birth certificates, passports and other documentation need to be gathered and organised in a folder. The exact requirement varies from country to country and needs to be checked carefully. These documents may need to be authenticated and validated to confirm that they are genuine.
Once these matters are taken care of the wedding itself can be planned. We can plan the wedding and help out with local arrangements for the venue, flowers, catering and other services.
You or the planner, can then check with airlines and hotels for group rates, as discounts may be available if a sufficient number of people are going to the wedding with you. Invitations should be sent out well in advance as more notice is required for overseas weddings, so the guests book time off work and make other arrangements. Typically, with overseas weddings a lot fewer guests will be able to attend. You will need to confirm numbers as soon as you can, so you can make arrangements with the wedding planner.
Don’t skip the budget on the photographer and videographer nor the wedding cars.
Once you have an idea of numbers, the venue should be booked and you can start to think about menu choices and a cake. The wedding planner can help with this as well as recommending a local photographer and a DJ or band for the reception.
You also need to think about what you will wear at your wedding and ensure that the outfits are easily transportable and will not be damaged in transit.
Finally, you should travel to the wedding destination about a few days or so before the ceremony, depending on the destination, to finalize details with wedding planner and to enjoy the final days of your engagement before the big day.
