    Wedding info

    Hi we would like to get married in Aruba in December. We are planning a small wedding (just the two of us and our daughter) and I know that the Legal wedding has to be in the civil hall but i would appreciate any suggestions regarding the civil hall ceremony and hotel recommendations

    Radisson does a fabulous wedding. Contact Lisa Dammerman at lisa.dammerman@radisson.com. She is just a great person and will make your day unforgettable. Hotel is just beautiful and staff is the friendliest you will ever experience. I am not sure of civil ceremony so maybe someone else can help you. Only renewed vows on beach not about legal details since we were married already. Just drop her a line and she will be glad to help you I am sure. She is actually the person who does all the weddings at the Radisson. Just newly renovated to property is outstanding, lush gardens for pictures and a beautiful beach.

    check out above link.

    some brides/grooms prefer to have their legal ceremony at home at their own city hall or court house and then do a ceremony on aruba on the beach.

    since it is only the 3 of you there is no real need for a planner is there?

    read thru the threads here in this category for ideas on officiant, location and photographer.

    where do you want to be on aruba for your stay? eagle beach or palm beach or elsewhere?

    am i correct in assuming you do not want a big elaborate ceremony?

    Requisitos para el Matrimonio
    Civil marriages are now possible in Aruba, but they must take place at the Civil Town House. Couples may also arrange a religious blessing after they have been legally married or just hold a romantic celebration beachside if they prefer. The following are the guidelines for the various ceremonies.



    CIVIL LEGAL REQUIREMENTS:

    1. All Civil/Legal Ceremonies must take place in the Civil Town House

    2. Documents include:

    A) Copies of birth certificate for bride and groom with apostille (state certification).

    B) Passport picture page or valid state issued picture I.D. for Bride & Groom.

    C) Witness (18 years up) passport picture page or valid state issued picture I.D. (minimum 2 witnesses) Witnesses can be provided locally if bride and groom are traveling alone at $50 each by a weddingplanner.

    D) Certificate of no impediment for bride and groom (also referred to as a “single status report” and in some states called a “negative statement of marriage”). This certificate of no impediment is obtained at the bureau of vital statistics which is located in the department of health.

    E) If either party has been divorced we need to receive a copy of the 1st and last page of the divorce decree(s).

    F) If either party is a widow(er) we need to receive a copy of the pertaining death certificate.

    Ceremony can take place in the late morning or early afternoon on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays.

    Saturdays are also available in the late mornings at an additional $150 surcharge.

    3. All documents are to be faxed for review and then submitted by courier (i.e. FedEx) at least one (1) month prior to desired wedding date. Please contact a wedding planner or your host hotel wedding coordinator.

    Letter of Intent

    Oh, Jason is so helpful offering to send a letter of intent by emailing him? All of the independent wedding planners have letter's of intent as well.
