I am getting married in Dakar Senegal in January. My fiance is originally from there but was living in France the past few years. We will be going to Dakar to get married but I really do not understand the process. Number one what is a" bans" and how do we post them? secondly, we just want to have a civil ceremony at the town hall. Do I need to reserve a time to get married or do they preform civil services on certain days/ hours? Any help would be great !
