Getting Married In The Caribbean
by Chris Collie, www.tropicalresort.com
Getting married in the Caribbean can be a very romantic, memorable experience, but knowing where to go and how to handle the arrangements can make your special day much more pleasant and enjoyable. We suggest that you never assume what the requirements are, countries change requirements from time to time. Always check with your travel agent or consulate to get exact requirements as each island and resort has different requirements. If you are divorced most destinations require that you present a certified decree absolute of divorce or death certificate if previously married. Some destinations require only a notarized letter confirming your single status. If you're under 18 you may need a notarized affidavit/consent of your parent or guardian.
Residency requirements differ... check your specific destination to see if you need a minimum residency before your wedding. Some destinations will waive the minimum, others require that you reside in the country for 24 to 48 hours prior to the wedding and in some cases before you may even apply for a marriage license. Blood test are usually not required, however, destinations such as Mexico requires that you have a blood test in a Mexican clinic.
Much care must be taken to double check with wedding professionals about specific requirements to prevent any disappointment and anguish, particularly with the future outlaws watching on the side.
