Getting married in Paris can be a fairy tale extravaganza or a sticky wicket laced with rules, regulations, wedding planner commissions, and language barriers. The only legal marriage recognized by French authorities is the civil one, at City Hall. The religious ceremony is very much optional. For French citizens it can only happen after the civil ceremony.

Priests in France are not allowed to perform a religious wedding on people who are not married “legally”.

Couples wishing to marry in France must be a resident of France for at least 40 days prior to the wedding for a legal ceremony. If this doesn’t dissuade you, an option is getting married in Las Vegas under their Eiffel Tower. Nonetheless, I’ve done some digging and here are some links that may be of help.

I haven’t had personal experience with any of these vendors. If you choose to do business with them, be sure to ask for references and be on the lookout for any hidden costs.
