Planning a wedding to Mozambique

But before we get carried away we need to consider a few realities of planning a wedding to Mozambique. When you are planning a destination wedding  you have to think about the kind of wedding you want and very often this comes down to the budget you can spend?

Destination weddings require deeper pockets than getting married in your home town. Guests have to travel to the wedding, pay for accommodation and very often a wedding is also combined with a holiday. And very likely if you marry in Mozambique your guests will need to fly in to your reception.

Maputo, Bilene and as far north as Inhambane are easily accessible destinations from South Africa for your Mozambique wedding, and driveable for the adventurous from South Africa.  A budget friendly favourite is Zona Braza Beach Lodge, and other options in  Tofo and the Barra Peninsula also have some good value accommodation providers with well-priced wedding venues right on the beach to choose from.

 A wedding in Mozambique Questions Answered

  • A quick check list below of the obvious questions to establish will help us to help you quicker. How many guests you want to invite?
  • What is your budget for the reception and what will be included and paid for by the bridal party?  (We have to know your budget to quote on anything meaningful!)
  • Will your guests be paying for their own accommodation, and if so what standard of accommodation will they require? Additional services like photographer, flowers, music.
  • Just one last thing to remember. Foreigners are not able to legally wed in Mozambique, so you need to get the paperwork and formalities done in your country of origin. We can however arrange a priest to conduct the ceremony should you so wish, and in many cases a head guide or lodge manager and reads the vows.  And we don’t shy away from gay couple weddings to Mozambique either. We would love to host you all on this special day and your Mozambique wedding.
