Saint Lucia offers a variety of Caribbean wedding packages and honeymoon activities to create unforgettable memories for you and your special someone.

What you will need to get a marriage license in Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia does not have a residency period, so this allows marriage licenses to be obtained within 24 for hours of arrival with a same day marriage license application. For those who apply for the regular marriage license, the couple is required to be in Saint Lucia two days prior to their wedding. As laws, fees, and requirements are subject to change, it is important that you verify all information with the local marriage license office before making any wedding or travel plans.

Documentation Required for a Saint Lucia Marriage License

  • Valid passport
  • Birth certificate
  • If an applicant has been divorced – the divorce decree. Note that the original or certified copy should be presented as proof.
  • If an applicant has been widowed – the marriage certificate and a death certificate (originals or certified copies) of the deceased spouse
  • If an applicant is under 18 – a sworn affidavit of consent stamped by a Notary Public
  • An authenticated translation must be presented in addition to the originals if the required documents are not in English.

Fees and Saint Lucia Marriage License Costs

There are a few minor fees and license costs to take care of when getting married in Saint Lucia:

  • Notarial fees and marriage license
    (a fee of EC $335, or on the same day for a higher fee of EC $540).
  • Registrar fees
  • Marriage certificate

It’s also worthy to note that many of the hotels have committed wedding coordinators who can organize your wedding and verify any costs.

Your special day only comes once, so it’s important to get these details right to avoid any headaches later. If you aren’t working with a wedding planner or an on-resort coordinator, you’ll want to review these requirements carefully before you arrive on island.
