Dificult for Americans to get married in Ireland?

Jump to last reply

We are thinking of getting married in Europe, perhaps a year from now or a bit sooner. I did a search here, but much of the info is several years old, and things may have changed by now, so...

Our first choice would be France, I think, but the old info says there's a 30--40 day residence requirement, which is impossible for us. Still true?

Not opposed at all to Italy, Austria, or Spain, but thinking Ireland or England might be easier to work out for the wedding. Then we can dash off to wherever for the honeymoon. So basically, we need to know where we can wed with the least amount of red tape.


Does anyone have experience with this? Any help will be much appreciated. For what it's worth, we're thinking of a small town or village rather than a large city. And there won't be a lot of extra arrangements to handle, as there will be no guests or family (not the first marriage for either of us).
