YOUR WEDDING

(frequently asked questions and answers)

C: If divorced, the original copy of the Decree Absolute

D: If widowed the death certificate of the spouse

E: Affidavit that each person has never married before – if applicable

F: Client’s needs to be on island 3 days before marriage license can be processed.

We are asked a variety of questions regarding arrangements that are made both before you travel and once in Grenada. We feel sure that the following information will help you.

HOW DO WE TRANSPORT OUR WEDDING DRESS AND SUIT ON THE FLIGHTS?

This does depend on which airline you are travelling with. We have been advised of the following details:

BRITISH AIRWAYS: Dresses should be boxed or packed into separate suitcase and will be placed into the hold of the aircraft.

BRITISH WEST INDIAN AIRLINES (BWIA): Suits and dresses should be hung in a garment sleeve and space permitting, will be hung in the cabin.

It should be noted that there is no extra baggage allowance for these items.

WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN WHEN WE ARRIVE AT SECRET HARBOUR?

When you have had time to settle in and relax, our Wedding Coordinator will contact you to finalize all your wedding arrangements.

WHAT ABOUT THE COLOUR OF MY BOUQUET AND HEADDRESS?

It is advisable to choose the colors for your bouquet at the hotel as these will vary from season to season. With regard to your headdress, simple styles are available through the hotel. However, if you have a specific style in mind it is recommended that you take with you a picture of your design, or a frame which can be decorated at the hotel.

WHAT COLOUR AND DESIGN WILL THE WEDDING CAKE BE?

The cake will be a Caribbean sponge and of a simple design. The colour of the icing is generally white. It may be possible to choose a different colour, and this should be discussed with the Wedding Coordinator.

STATE REQUIRMENTS?

The couple must be resident in Grenada for 3 working days before the ceremony can take place. The ceremony cannot be held on Sundays and Public Holidays.

Application is made at the Magistrate’s Court, St.John’s Street, St.George’s, or at the Prime Ministers Office, Botanical Gardens, St.George’s. It takes 7 days for processing through the Magistrate’s office and two days at the Prime Minister’s Office.

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED TO BE MARRIED IN GRENADA?

Valid Passports

You will need original or court certified copies of the following for both parties:

Birth Certificate

Affidavit that each person has never married—if applicable

Original of proof or Decree Absolute if one of the parties is divorced

Original of Death Certificate in the case of a widow/widower

If either or both are under 21 years, written consent from parents or guardian in the form of an original affidavit by the Notary Public.

Original of the proof if name changed by Deed Pool

NOTE: The ceremony can take place immediately on receipt of the license. It is recommended, especially if divorced, that above papers are faxed two weeks ahead of wedding so that we can initiate procedures, to save guests time on arrival.

All papers must be in English and court certified.

WHEN CAN I ARRANGE A HAIR AND BEAUTY APPOINTMENT FOR THE DAY OF MY WEDDING?

This again can be arranged on arrival at the resort.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO HIRE WEDDING DRESSES AND MORNING SUITS IN GRENADA?

We regret there are no facilities to hire such clothes.

HOW DO WE GET OUR VIDEO CONVERTED FOR VIEWING IN OUR BRITISH SYSTEM?

We suggest that you contact a company called Triangle Television which has considerable experience in converting videos, they can be contacted on: Tele: 0819743418 and will be happy to assist.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE MORE THAN ONE COPY OF THE MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE?

Copies can be obtained by taking the marriage certificate to your solicitor who will certify copies for you. We do strongly recommend that you do this, and place a copy with your solicitor or bank for safe keeping.

Second copies of certificate issued in Grenada can also be obtained for $7.00 EC Dollars.
