A wedding in the Caribbean bears multiple similarities elsewhere with the major difference being your tropical backdrop. While you don’t have to worry about matching your winter coat to your dress, you do want to make sure the catering, colors, flowers, venues and photos are taken care of. We’re here to help. Here’s what you need to know when planning a destination wedding in Saint Lucia.
Applying For Your Marriage License
Getting married in Saint Lucia could not be easier since there is no residency period and express licenses can be requested for a fee. Your Coconut Bay wedding planner will assist with the process, the paperwork and explanation of all fees.
Gather Your Documents
Before you travel, you will need to gather all the right documents for a marriage license. Make sure you have these original documents with you before you arrive in Saint Lucia, or there could be delays in the approval process:
- Valid passport
- Birth certificate
- Divorce decree (if you have been previously divorced) or a death certificate (if your spouse has passed)
- A notarized affidavit of consent if one of the parties is under the age of 18.
Be sure to confirm all required documentation and deadlines with your Coconut Bay resort wedding planner.
