Marriage Requirements

Legal or civil marriages in Aruba are easy to arrange following a few simple steps which include the submission in advance of legal documentation. This is an area where an experienced resort or independent wedding planner can be of valuable assistance to you and your clients.

All legal marriage ceremonies must take place at the Historic Civil Town House where ceremonies are typically held on Monday – Friday from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM and  2:00 PM – 3:30 PM (closed on Wednesday afternoon). It is also possible to make arrangements for a civil ceremony on Saturday, however this may incur an additional cost.

Couples usually follow this civil ceremony with religious blessing and/or hold a romantic symbolic wedding celebration on the beach.
