So, you’ve decided to forego the elaborate wedding and head straight to the courthouse. Seems simple enough, right? Ally thought so, too. But when she decided to call off her big wedding and opt for city hall nuptials, she was surprised by how little information was out there about how to plan a wedding in Berlin. That's why we have put together a "Wedding Berlin map" of things you should know before and while ;) getting married. But today I would like to give you some wedding tips in Berlin that you might not have yet on your list.
With a lot of love for and attention to detail, you will find your ideal wedding ring in a cosy atmosphere and with personal advice.
