The perfect way to start a marriage … A Wedding in the American paradise!
A ceremony at sunset on the beach, or in an outdoor gazebo, or in a lovely chapel, or right at the Territorial Court — it all can be easily arranged.
Nowadays, being a Virgin bride calls for two willing hearts, a bit of planning, and minimal paperwork.
The U.S. Virgin Islands require no marriage blood tests. American couples need only fill out a two-page form, pay a $50 license fee, and observe an eight-day posting period. It can be done through a local wedding planner, thus eliminating an on-island waiting period. To ensure that everything runs smoothly, start planning a minimum of two months ahead, or even sooner if you’re thinking big.
Professional wedding planners can make your wedding day perfect. Avoid the hassles of doing it yourself by using one of our professional services.
These planners share access to a staggering variety of ceremony and reception locales, including St. Thomas’ historic Blackbeard’s Castle, Estate St. Peter Greathouse Botanical Garden, and heart-shaped Magens Bay Beach.
The wedding wizards can also go as wild as your imagination: they can plan an underwater party on a submarine, or drop you by helicopter on isolated Hans Lollik for a ceremony and champagne toast. They’ll set you up on a private yacht or arrange a dinner dance at a sprawling hilltop villa. Before you sign on, check that your consultant is in good standing with the Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs (340-774-3130). Compare prices, and make sure the chemistry is right.
