Is 30 Days enough to get married in the Philippines?

How long would it take to process all the necessary and important papers to get married in the Philippines?
How long would it take to process papers for a Church Wedding?
How long would it take to process papers for a Civil Wedding?

Marriage in the Philippines takes time. Best case, 30 days would be enough, worst case, 30 days would not be enough. Unfortunately, I could not share any information about Church wedding in the Philippines simply because I don't have any experience. Just Civil Wedding.

All marriage papers that you are going to process takes time and patience. The factors below will give you an idea and approximation on how many days you should consider to get married (Civil Wedding) in the Philippines.
With your 30 days, 10 days are already taken due to Marriage Notice which will be posted or announced in the church. So if you are a foreigner or an OFW (overseas worker), be very extra careful in planning your marriage. It would be best if you already have all the necessary marriage papers and just process the papers which can only be made in the Philippines, after you arrived there. Note that the list I have mentioned above will depend from case to case. For example, if you are a minor who wants to get married, you might need a Parent's Consent paper. So this would mean an additional time.

The wedding ceremony will be held in a court room and it will only last for about 10 minutes. Processing of the marriage papers will take days but the wedding ceremony will only take 10 minutes. Congratulations on your wedding!

Hello kabayan.... i and my fiance are also planning to get married this year in Philippines (Davao City). im working in UAE and my fiance is working in germany. Do you think it will take more time for the paper works to get wed in the church compared to civil wedding aside from having the docs that you have mentioned above?

Hmmm.. miss euroangel, how do you like the snow there in germany? I was there during xmas and new year (Dec2009) and the weather was really crazy.

I dont know and have not seen filipino people there. But it was not boring the family of my fiance was great.

Looking forward to hear your response on my questions... Im really confused about our wedding plan. Noted that i will only have 30 days leave during my wedding time.

Maayung adlaw dha!

It depends how long it would take to process the papers. And I doubt that 30 days would be enough.
