Weather and Climate
Weather in the Maldives is generally bi-polar, with a dry season and a monsoon season. January to March is the dry season and the wet season spans from May till November. April and December act as transitional periods between the main seasons.
Culture and Etiquette
The Maldives is a devoutly Muslim nation and therefore features many strict regulations one must follow outside of the many resort-islands such as Maafushivaru Maldives. One should always cover shoulders and legs above the knees, and never wear anything see-through.
Wedding Expenses and Money
It’s no surprise that a beach wedding in Maldives will not be cheap, and transportation, which involves seaplanes and speedboats, add greatly to the price. Visa is quite easy to obtain and can be obtained on arrival as long as you have a valid travel document, a ticket-out, and proof of sufficient funds.
Surprisingly, it’s impossible for non-residents to get married in the Maldives and those who do only have a symbolic wedding ceremony. The legalities are sorted out in their home countries.
