Getting married in Ireland

Hi all,

We invite all the ones who got married in Ireland or who are about to get married in Ireland to participate in this thread :)

What are the formalities to get married in Ireland? Is it the same for a couple of foreigners of for a mixed couple (between a foreigner and a native of Ireland)?

Are the procedures complicated?

How long does it take to carry out all the formalities?

Thank you in advance for participating,


I got married in ireland. My husband is italian. We had to give the state 3 months notice and its the same for everybody. I had a church wedding.

The procedures are difficult and complicated.
