F.A.Q's

WEDDING DAY

What is the average price of an Al & Bee wedding?


The cost of a wedding changes completely depending on the services you would like to utilise. Therefore, we encourage you to e-mail us for your free consultation. Regardless, we can assure you that the costs are significantly cheaper at Al & Bee than in U.K. We also have standard 'set packages' for our partner venues; saving you time and money. For example, you could be looking at as little as £1,350 for your entire wedding day (based on 25 guests, all inclusive*). Yes, really!




Can I choose seperate acommodation and wedding venue? Do I have to choose from one of your venues?


Of course! Whatever you decide, we will make happen. Similarly, if you would like a venue that isn't listed as one of our partners, we're still more than happy to help. However, by choosing one our partner venues, we can vouch for their experience, high quality and great reputation.




Is my marriage going to be legally binding?


It is common for couples to perform the legally binding aspects of their marriage in the U.K beforehand. However, if you would like your marriage to be legally binding based based on your wedding in Turkey, we can arrage the legal aspects with local authorities and guide you through the process. Please be aware that you will need to provide the necessary documentation and undergo medical checks. You will need a CNI: https://www.gov.uk/marriage-abroad More information can be found here: https://www.goturkeytourism.com/things-to-do/getting-married-in-turkey.html Please note: this service does incur extra fees.




Can you cater for dietary requirements? i.e. Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free. etc.


Yes, all our partner venues provide you with complete freedom over your wedding menu. Vegan, Vegeterian, BBQ, Buffet, absolutely anything! If you choose a venue we aren't partnered with, we can't gurantee this freedom, but we will ensure all requests are made and clarified with the selected venue prior to the wedding day.




Can I trial my makeup and hair?


Of course! We have a selection of recommended makeup-artists and hairdressers who will work closely with you to establish your perfect look. Please note: please make sure you allow for trials in your wedding schedule. A 3 day stay in Turkey will not usually be sufficient to trial makeup and hair, and couples should aim to stay for around 5- 6 days at a minimum.




Will I need a translator?


If you want your wedding to be legally binding under Turkish law, you will need a translator. If not, your ceremony can be provided in English. We will be providing all translation services throughout your stay as a complimentary part of your package. This includes 24/7 phone access throughout your stay and the option for personal appearance at any activities arranged by us.




Do you only arrange weddings in Kas?


No, we can arrange them all over Turkey. However, by choosing to go with one of our partner venues, we can ensure you get the best for your budget. We have a range of trusted suppliers who will provide the fairest possible prices - without compromising on quality. Please note: weddings not located in South-Western Turkey may incur extra charges.





ENAGEMENT & WEDDING SHOOT STYLING

Of course! However, you will need to book extra time to allow for scene changes. If you are having multiple locations, different themes can be included within location change at no extra time fee.




Can I choose multiple different locations?


Of course! You can choose as many as you wish, however you will need to book adequate time to allow for transport to and from the different locations. We will be there to assist you in all locations. However, please note that some locations won't be available at certain times of the day, due to harsh lighting and busy areas. We will plan all accordingly, in order to get you the most beautiful shoots possible.




Can I choose a photographer and hire you for styling?


Yes, however we work with a fantastic local photographer who comes highly recommended. She has completed projects for Kas Tourism Association and WWF Turkey. We are confident she will produce beautiful images at a very competitive rate.




How long do I need to stay in Kas?


Preferably 1 night, 2 days. This is so we can meet you prior to go through our plans and ensure you are happy. We will also meet with you in England (or communicate to you through your preferred method if the distance is far) prior to meeting to ensure you are happy with decor and style planning. Of Course, you may want to think about extending your stay beyond that time, especially if you're flying in just to Kas.

This also applies to both engagement parties and proposal arrangements.

Photography included. Please be aware that both parties will need to be fully certified. Lessons and ceritification can be arranged, but will incur extra costs and require a min of 7 days.

VISITING TURKEY

What is the minimum recommended stay?


Ultimiately, its up to you and your budget. We recommend a minimum of 5 days. If you can stretch to longer, even better! There is lots to do and see around Kas. However, you need to allow for things such as flight delays, and you need time to unwind before your big day. We also need to meet with you in your chosen venue beforehand, to run through our plans with you. If you're planning to have makeup and hair trials, we recommend 7 days, to allow for changes and availability.

The nearest airport is DALAMAN airport, where our drivers will be ready to pick you up.
