Drop-in weddings – You don’t have to travel to Las Vegas to get married on the spot!
Planning a wedding might be fun for some people, others may experience it as a stressful challenge. One alternative to a traditional wedding event is a drop-in wedding, a wedding on the spot. All you have to bring is your partner, id credentials, and some other documents, depending on your nationality and country of residence. You should, of course, also bring the wedding rings. The wedding rings are not mandatory, but a wedding without rings is like a summer without sun, a Christmas without snow, or spring without flowers.
Drop-in wedding: spontaneous, easy and fun
In Sweden, it has become increasingly popular to get married spontaneously, without planning the event for months. Drop-in marriages can be found in many locations throughout Sweden.
A drop-in wedding can also be a fun alternative if you don’t want to organize a very formal ceremony or wedding party. 465 couples got married at the theme park Skansen in Stockholm at one of the drop-in wedding ceremonies that are held every summer. Skansen is one of the must-see places in Stockholm.
