Frequently Asked Questions about Weddings in Turkey


Istanbul offers numerous unique venues for couples who would like to tie the knot in a memorable place.

One of the most popular wedding venues in Istanbul is of course the legendary Bosphorus strait. While the Boat-on-the-Bosphorus venue allows for breathtaking views and an unforgettable day, a venue along the Bosphorus, such as a private waterfront villa, can be quite as magnificent.

Some of the most high profile wedding venues in Istanbul are the 5 star luxury hotels. Very popular and a more affordable option are some 4 star hotels in the city. And what could spell a fairy-tale better than an opulent Ottoman Palace venue or an underground cistern?  For more unique ideas, feel free to get in touch with us.

Is Catering included in Weddings in Turkey?

This depends entirely on the venue. Many venues offer catering or wedding packages that include a basic catering service.


In Turkey, wedding dresses have quite a wide price range. Depending on the store, the type of fabric the dress is made of and the prestige of the brand, the prices for the same dress can vary in different stores.

In ordinary small stores without brand names, you can find dresses between 3,000 TL and 7,000 TL.

In prestigious Turkish brand name stores, prices start at 5,500 TL for the most basic dress and can go up to 15,000 TL for a very sophisticated design.

Luxury stores such as Vakko and Designer Workshops are the most expensive with prices starting at 11,000 TL and have no upper limit on the budget.

Where to buy the Best Wedding Dresses in Turkey?

Wedding dresses are available everywhere in Turkey. However, the Nişantaşı and Fevzipaşa streets in Istanbul's Fatih district, the Çankaya neighborhood in the Aegean city of Izmir and the Gençlik neighborhood in Turkey's Mediterranean coastal city of Antalya are particularly recommended. Here you will find the best selection of the most beautiful wedding dresses and a better price offer.

Are there wedding packages are available for weddings in Turkey?

Yes, many venues in Turkey offer a range of wedding packages from which you can choose the one that best suits your needs and budget. There are even all-inclusive wedding packages that make planning easier for the bride and groom, and sometimes even more affordable. They are especially popular with foreigners planning a destination wedding in Turkey.

How to find a good Wedding Planner in Turkey?

Since the wedding industry in Turkey is extensive, a Google search will find hundreds of available listings for a wedding planner. However, finding the right wedding planner is crucial to making the most beautiful day of your life run smoothly. That's why we're happy to help you find the right wedding planner for your needs and budget. Simply contact us using our form.

How much does a Wedding planner cost in Turkey?

The cost of a wedding planner in Turkey depends greatly on the size of your wedding, the location and venue, the time and the scope of services offered.

If you choose a full-service wedding planner with complete planning, you should naturally expect higher prices than if you choose partial planning. Wedding planners in Turkey typically offer packages, from which you can choose the scope of services.

The average cost of such service packages in Turkey is usually between €1000 and €5000. However, for very creative and unique weddings, the cost can be much higher, according to the uniqueness of the event.

How to find a Wedding photographer in Turkey?

Many venues in Turkey do provide a wedding photographer, but these are usually not necessarily very creative photographers. So, if you want to make sure that your wedding pictures will be as modern and beautiful as you have always imagined, you can hire a wedding photographer yourself instead.

Finding a good wedding photographer is all about finding a trustworthy photographer who specializes in weddings. Look at his previous work to see if you like the photographer's style. Also, talk about the price and all the services included in it. We look forward to helping you with your wedding. Just contact us and we will respond to you within 24 hours.


Many venues offer a catering service, which may be included in the price. Usually there are two options: dinner with or without alcohol and a cocktail reception. Buffets at wedding are not common in Turkey.

Many venues have set dinner menus that may not match what you are used to at home in terms of selection and quality. Therefore, a high-quality outside catering service that allows you to specify the food according to your tastes and guests' dietary restrictions can be a good option.

Please note that some venues that provide on-site catering do not allow outside catering. Be sure to address any catering related questions when choosing a venue.
