Grenada Wedding Legal Requirements
There are a few legal requirements to get married in Grenada:
Applicants need to be in Grenada for a minimum of one day before applying for a Marriage License.
Please note that Marriage License appointments are only done on Tuesdays and collection days are on Fridays, if you wish to do an expediting service, the cost would be XCD540.00, and you will be able to apply for the license any day of the week (Mon-Fri.) and will receive the Marriage License within 24hrs.
Documents Required include:
- Valid Passports
- Birth Certificates
- Sworn Affidavit (or letter from a Clergy Man, Lawyer or Registry), attesting that neither party has been married previously-if applicable.
- Decree Absolute, for each divorced party-if applicable.
- If either party is widowed, they must submit a copy of the deceased spouse’s Death Certificate.
- Legal proof if a name was changed by Deed Poll.
- If under 21 years of age, written parental consent by way of an Affidavit from a Lawyer or Notary Public.
- Police Clearance for each party
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 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.
