The pandemic has changed our wedding plans and therefore in the interest of safety  and health of our guests we decided to move the date of our wedding to 7th of May 2022. We believe that by this date we will be able to meet and celebrate our wedding cheerfully and carefree with most of you.

Travel documents

In principle, the following rules apply to all EU and US countries:

You do not need a visa to enter Ukraine for tourism purposes for visits of up to 90 days in any 180 day

period, you but must be able to provide proof of valid health insurance and sufficient funds for the duration of your stay. A visa and residency permit is required for stays over 90 days. However, we recommend that you check which travel documents you will need before traveling

Time zone

Time in Ukraine is defined as UTC+02:00 and in summer as UTC+03:00. Part of Eastern European Time, it is locally referred to as Kyiv Time. If your mobile phones do not change the time automatically, we recommend that you change it manually. Important note: on the wedding invitation, we indicate Ukrainian local time as the start time of the wedding. Therefore, we ask you to be careful and not to delay.


In Ukraine, the Ukrainian hryvnia is paid in UAH. Exchange rate: 1€ = cca 30 UAH or 1USD = 28 UAH.  Payment by card is not possible everywhere, so we recommend having some cash in UAH. In Ukraine, it is not a problem to withdraw money from an ATM. However, if you have the opportunity, it is better to exchange money. Important note: never exchange money at the first exchange office branch at the airport, bus stop or train station. It is better to walk a few meters further and always check the exchange rate in advance.

Telephone operators

Ukraine is located outside the EU, so calling or using data can cost you a lot of money. We therefore recommend using Wi-fi if you can or buy a cheap Ukrainian Sim card. Wi-Fi will be available at the wedding and at the hotel, so you don't have to worry about not being connected.

Wedding gifts

Your presence at our wedding is more important to us than a gift. If you would still like to give us something, a small financial contribution towards our honeymoon will surely make our day.

Bouquets and flowers

Please do not worry about finding wedding bouquets and flowers in Ukraine. We will travel to Ukraine for a wedding only for a few days and we will have a relatively busy program and we will not be able to enjoy the beautiful flowers. If you can't imagine a wedding without flowers, then give the bride only one flower and she will combine these different flowers into one beautiful wedding bouquet. There is also option to send the flowers to our home. We have found a great service (if you are interested, click HERE), which will send bouquets from guests during the year, which is more environmentally friendly than bringing dozens of bouquets to the wedding at once.

Food allergies

It is very important to us that our wedding guests enjoy the food and that we do not serve the food, which guests do not like or cannot eat for health, religious or other reasons. If you are a vegetarian, vegan, allergic to nuts or you have any other dietary restriction, please let us know. If you accidentally forget to let us know, we will ask you about it a month before the wedding :-)
