Grenada Wedding Legal Requirements
There are a few legal requirements to get married in Grenada:
- The Couple are required to apply for the Marriage License, the following business day after arrival.
- The documents take a minimum of two business days to be processed; expedite service is available at an additional fee. If either party is divorced the process may take longer, as documents are perused by the Ministry of Legal Affairs.
- Valid passports
- Both birth certificates
- A notarized letter attesting both parties have single status. This letter must be notarized by a Clergy Man, Lawyer or Registry.
- Absolute divorce papers if applicable
- If previous partner is deceased, then the death certificate is required
- Minimum age eighteen
- A deed poll certificate is needed to prove any name change
Documents must be presented to the different government ministries personally.
This should take about two hours. However, if you are to be married by a Minister, he will need to interview you prior to the wedding.
Please note there is a dress code in the Ministerial Office. No sleeveless shirts or tank tops for men or women and no shorts for men.
In Grenada, you may be married by an officer of the court, namely a Magistrate, or a Minister of Religion. The choice is entirely yours.
(for a Catholic wedding, you should contact your local priest who would liaise with our priest in Grenada.)
Other arrangements can be done upon your arrival: Hair appointment, location of the ceremony and the reception, choosing your flowers…….and other ideas which you would use to make your day very special.
