Getting Married in Aruba

If you're looking for a destination to host your wedding that has a year round good climate, stunning scenery and a wealth of history and culture, then why not consider the Caribbean island of Aruba. Weddings abroad in Aruba can cater for the most discerning of couples and with a choice of civil or religious ceremonies, getting married is easy. With top notch hotels and banquet rooms and some of the globe's finest beaches, there are plenty of options for choosing where to hold your reception.

Marriage Requirements


With both civil and religious weddings possible, it is relatively easy to tie the knot in Aruba. However, a civil marriage has to be held in the Civil Town House. You will need copies of both birth certificates together with photo ID such as passport or State Issue ID. In addition you will have to sign to say that you are single. You will also have to find 2 witnesses. Weddings can only be held on Wednesday-Fridays although for an additional cost of US$150 you can slot in a late morning  wedding. All completed documents need to be faxed for review and then submitted by a courier (such as Fedex) at least one month before your intended wedding date.
