Leave It to the Professionals

The USVI is full of planners that offer services in a wide range of pricing to suit all needs and budgets.
At Least 8 Days Prior…
Set a reminder to download and mail your marriage license to the Superior Court of the USVI to arrive at least eight days prior to your ceremony. To further ease your mind, use a mail service that provides tracking numbers and insurance like UPS or Fed Ex. The Court requires an eight-day waiting period so the sooner you mail your completed application, licenses fees and additional paperwork, the less stressed you’ll be!

The After-Party for Two
Your celebration of love doesn’t have to end on your wedding day. Extend your stay in the USVI by honeymooning on one of the other two gorgeous main islands! The three largest islands are just within a quick ferry or plane ride of each other so after the last dance has been danced and the last guest has been thanked, you can immediately head to your luxurious, indulgent honeymoon! Tell your wedding planner what you have in mind and he or she will make it happen.
