Weddings & Honeymoons in St.
YOU KNOW THAT... Many couples are opting to save the
money (not to mention the stress and hard work) of a big
wedding at home by escaping to a Caribbean island for a
combination wedding/honeymoon. Upon their return, they can
share the event by showing the video and photographs at an
All the islands are beautiful and, on some, weddings have
become a major promotional tool. So why should you choose
St. Croix above others?
First are the practical reasons. As we are a U.S. Territory,
there are no legal, language, or money hassles to deal with.
No blood test or waiting period is required, and the simple
application process can be done by mail. A local wedding
planner can handle this for you along with your other
arrangements, ensuring that all is in order before you
arrive. Or you may contact the Territorial Court yourself,
at (340) 778-9750. The license fee is $50, and if you have
been married before you will need a certified copy of the
divorce papers or death certificate. You will need to pick
up the license yourself on arrival; this only takes a few
minutes but must be done on a regular business day. That
takes care of the business part!
Then comes the fun of choosing from the
numerous romantic ceremony sites around the island
for the wedding of your dreams. The most popular and
tropical choice is, of course, a palm-studded beach
with the sun sinking into the Caribbean Sea in the
background. Other options include an ancient stone
sugar mill, offering the effect of an open-air
cathedral, or the flowering wedding bower in the
waterfront offers an old-fashioned bandstand/gazebo
surrounded by the 18th-century fort and other
historic buildings. You can marry there, then walk a
few steps to a waiting boat for a champagne sunset
sail. And, yes, you can be married on a boat, either
sail or power, from small ones with just room for
you and the minister to large ones accommodating 40
of your closest friends.
There are also churches of all denominations. Our
Episcopal church is the oldest in the Caribbean,
while a modern Baptist church has both indoor and
outdoor venues overlooking the water. The recently
renovated Catholic church has thick stone walls,
wood ceiling, and huge arched windows.
And just because we're a small island, don't think
you won't find first-class services in St. Croix!
Professional consultants, photographers, florists,
caterers, and jewelers are available to make your
wedding as simple or as elegant as you want.
You don't have to go far to find your perfect
honeymoon spot when you get married in St. Croix.
Luxury resorts are available for couples who like to
be waited on hand and foot. Intimate guest houses or
condos are another wonderful way to spend your
special time together. You may choose one of our
many island villas, equipped with private pools, for
a more exclusive honeymoon. Of course, there are
private yachts available to charter for a customized
honeymoon on the waters of the Caribbean. Whichever
you choose, you are sure to have the time of your
