Wedding venues in Prague, Czech Republic

Wedding venues in Prague, Czech Republic

If you are planning a destination wedding in Prague you might consider Prague or some lovely chateaus outside Prague. It really depends on what you’re expecting from your wedding, what you want your guests to see and if they don’t mind traveling. There are plenty of lovely wedding venues in the Czech Republic but make sure you choose the right one.


  • What’s the owner of the venue like?
  • What’s the wedding manager like?
  • How is service / how do the waiters behave?
  • How is food & beverage?
  • Are they reliable?
  • Are all costs included in the calculation or will they charge any unexpected expenses later on?

That is why you should read the testimonials and ask for references. From my experience I can say it’s the best to hire an experienced wedding planner. Myself I’m always trying to help my clients decide. I tell them pros and cons and tell them the whole background. I can explain them why one venue might be better than the other. With me they don’t have to be worried about not choosing well.

Big advantage  of organizing  a wedding  in Prague is the location. It is located in the centre of Europe so it is very well reachable from other countries. There is plenty of accommodation options so it is very easy for guests to find accommodation which suites them or you can find a lovely hotel where all or part of your guests would be accommodated together. Other reasons for organizing a destination wedding in Prague you can find here.

In Prague there are different types of venues you can choose from – palaces, gardens, hotels or restaurants of many different styles. Or also the Prague castle.

Expats weddings in Prague


Weddings in Prague and the Czech Republic in general have gotten very popular in the last few years for multiple reasons. As I’ve organized many destination and expat weddings in the past, I understand the reason why. Guests are always super excited to spend a few days in Prague and actually get to know the city where you’ve been living for some time. Additionally, the city of Prague is super romantic due to its chateaus, cathedrals, winding cobblestone streets, and plenty of wedding venues with beautiful views.

If you want to see all reasons I came up with “why to organize a wedding in Prague,” check them out here.

It is up to you as a couple to decide to plan your wedding on your own or to hire the services of an experienced wedding agency. Furthermore, you also need to think of your expectations from the agency. Do you want help with only the legal legwork and the day-of coordination or would you like to have full wedding planning services?

If you are an expat living in Prague, you might be able to organize the wedding yourself. However, you have to have enough time and patience to do so. Some suppliers or venue managers don’t speak English well enough or they don’t speak at all, so it might be a bit difficult. Also, it is very stressful to coordinate a larger wedding where most of the guests are coming from abroad.

Many couples decide to forgo the self-planning journey and hire a professional wedding planner to help them with all of the paperwork, assistance with Czech translations, and other wedding planning duties such as finding the right suppliers.

I always prefer to plan every wedding individually as I feel like each couple is unique and has different expectations, taste, and budget. I like to suggest specific suppliers that I think would suite the style and type of personalities of the couple best. Additionally, I recommend multiple venues options that would best fit the couples wedding vision. Then, we also discuss options of the pre-wedding dinner or after-wedding brunch. I strive to make the whole experience for the couple and guests unique and exciting.

Additionally, I plan other details such as wedding design, wedding prints (save the dates, invitations etc.), web pages in multiple languages, and book options for accommodations for the guests. In depth, the couple and I discuss the flowers, decor, cake, sweets and decoration details. Then of course details such as food, drinks, photographer, videographer, transportation for bride & groom and guests, etc.

If you wish for your wedding to be stress-free and relaxing, I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner. This will allow you to spend as much time with your guests visiting from abroad and simply enjoy the moment.

It is best to book the agency/planner at least 6 months prior to wedding. The wedding venues are usually booked in advance same as the good quality suppliers.

Then of course you need enough time to manage the paperwork, especially if one or both of the couple are foreign to the Czech Republic.


There are a few wedding expos happening in Prague other Czech cities during the year. If you are planning to organize the wedding yourself, it might be a place to go to get some contacts.

Personally, I don’t recommend it as I know the best, original or stylish suppliers don’t go to those events. The companies attending are not the ones who will individually plan your wedding; they are “wedding-package” based companies who will not offer you anything unique. I would say the expo is only for the couples who aren’t experienced and aren’t after a stylish wedding. However, it is a good place to go if you are looking for a sale on your weddings rings.


There are so many options in terms of the wedding venues in Prague and the Czech countryside. You can look at my favourite venue choices here, but of course there are more. You can choose from palaces, chateaus, restaurants, hotels or gardens. If you are looking for an industrial style venue in Prague, there are some options mostly depending on the amount of guests.

You can choose all-inclusive venue where you hold ceremony, reception and accommodation at the same location. Or you can choose two venues and transport your guests in between by historical tram, historical buses, historical cars, boat or just minibuses.

TIP: in the Czech Republic it is forbidden to play loud music outside after 10:00p.m. so I recommend choosing the location where you can either move inside or the whole is kept inside.

GOOD TIP FOR YOU: Czechs believe that May marriages will bring them bad luck so they don’t want to get married in this month. That means that some venues and suppliers might be available compared to other months during the wedding season.

The Czech Republic and especially Prague, is one of the most amazing places to get married. The river, city center, historical buildings, views, great food and drinks, and everything else combined makes for an unforgettable experience for the guests and the couple. For expat weddings, it is the best choice because they can be enjoying all the preparations, meet the suppliers, venues and be part of the whole planning process.

Wedding ceremony in Prague, Czech Republic (Destination wedding)

One of the most important moments of the wedding day is the ceremony. In Prague there are many venue options for the wedding ceremony. There are plenty of palaces, gardens, terraces, churches in Prague or even outside Prague.

There are few different ways of getting married in the Czech Republic.

  • CHURCH – there are mostly catholic churches in Prague. You can arrange the ceremony in a church / chapel or cathedral.
  • ALTERNATIVE RELIGION – there are other religions which have different rules than the catholic religion and can be organized outside a church anywhere you desire. They can make the ceremony very beautiful and they are open to your ideas of a ceremony.
  • NON-RELIGIOUS – “standard” non-religious ceremony with registry office can be happening in town hall or in other certain locations. There must be an interpreter present during the ceremony.
  • SYMBOLIC – you can hire someone to arrange the ceremony very beautifully and exactly according to your wishes. Also you don’t have to struggle with the paperwork.

No matter how you decide, make the ceremony enjoyable for both you and your guests. It will be an important beginning to the rest of the wedding day.


As for a Jewish rabbi, from the research I’ve done in a past, it is possible to organize a wedding in a Jewish synagogue only in the case where both bride and groom are Jewish.

Protestant wedding or orthodox Christianity wedding is also possible in the Czech Republic in specific Churches.


I often organize symbolic wedding ceremonies. A symbolic wedding ceremony is my favorite for many reasons:

  • You don’t need to worry about the paper work as it is sometimes struggle (many nationalities, etc.)
  • You know in advance who will be doing the ceremony and you can discuss and adjust every word said at the ceremony.
  • You can basically tailor the wedding ceremony as per your wishes
  • It can be done in English only (if you have the official registry office they always do it in Czech with English translation)
  • You can organize the wedding anywhere anytime.


Wedding paperwork is usually the trickiest part of wedding planning. After you get all the necessary documents, you will have to have everything translated to Czech by a legal translator and depending on your home country, you may need to get them apostilled/notarized. All the necessary documents confirm that the marriage can be lawfully recognized by the native country.

These are the documents which are mostly requested:

  • Birth certificate.
  • Passport or ID which proves the nationality and identity
  • Certificate of no impediment – you may be able to make a sworn statement at your country’s embassy. Be careful – this document may not be older than 6 months at the time of your marriage.
  • Divorce or death certificate, notarized copy, translated
  • Religious documents if needed, mostly for the church
  • Certificate from Czech Foreign Police no longer than seven days prior wedding. It states that you may legally stay in the Czech Republic.

Depending on the country the documents sometimes need to be apostilled/notarized. Overall documentation will vary by nationality especially if you have more nationalities, permanent residence in another country etc.

Whatever type of ceremony you choose I’m here to plan it for you. Feel free to contact me.





Czech-foreign or fully foreign destination wedding in Prague

Czech-foreign or fully foreign destination wedding in Prague

I’ve organized plenty of destination weddings in Prague in the past. Very often I organize Czech-foreign weddings usually a Czech girl marrying a foreign guy but sometimes the other way round. It is very popular to arrange a destination wedding in Prague so I also organize full foreign weddings. In my opinion these are extremely interesting weddings due to the different traditions and different views on the wedding itself. Each nationality and each person is expecting and used to something different.

It is very different to organize a Czech wedding or a German, Norwegian, British, Scottish, American, Chinese and others. I believe reading this you feel the differences yourself. Each nationality has different culture, typology and behaviour of guests, different food habits and times of eating. To me it is very important to communicate all the requirements and expectations and typology of guests with my clients to fulfill all their wishes and satisfy all the guests.

Lately wedding in Prague has become very popular for Scandinavians. I organized Norwegian wedding,  Finnish wedding and also Danish wedding, all in Prague. Still waiting for my first Swedish wedding though! 🙂


In my past I organized weddings with sooo many different nations. From top of my head it was: France, Spain, Norway, England, Ireland, Scotland, US, Canada, South African Republic, India, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Italy, Korea, Japan, China, Slovenia, Australia… wooow quite many behind me!

I love organizing weddings for different nationalities in combination to Czech surroundings and venues. Someone is used to ceremony at noon, someone at 5 p.m.. Someone isn´t expecting to eat much at the beginning, someone is used to eating from 8 p.m..

If you organize a wedding in the Czech republic and you are foreign, make sure to take good care about the paper work. It is not easy to arrange all the paper work, you (or your wedding planner) needs to cooperate closely to the registry office to make sure they have all the documents needed.


I´ve organized quite many symbolic ceremonies as well. If you aren´t able to manage all the paper work or it is just much more simple to get married officially in your country this is the best way how to make your ceremony really nice. You can hire very good actors who make the ceremony exactly according to your wishes.

If you are inviting guests from all over the world I suggest arrange a pre-wedding dinner or simple Czech style dinner with barbecue and good beer where everyone gets to know each other and so they would be very relaxed on the wedding day. These pre-wedding evenings are truly magical and release any kind of tension. I also I love arranging the after wedding brunch where newlyweds can say a proper goodbye and share all the memories from the previous day.

There are plenty of differences between nationalities that I could talk about for ages. However it is always important to think about the guests in general and make compromises to make not only your guests happy but most importantly the two of you.
