Wedding Requirements

In order to be eligible to marry in The Bahamas, both the bride and groom must be in The Bahamas at the time of application for the marriage license. So make sure you plan your trip to include a couple of days prior to the big day to ensure that the paperwork is completed.

Couples may apply a day after their arrival and can be married once they receive their approved license the day after application. If you arrive via cruise ship you will be required to obtain a letter from the ship's purser, confirming that you have met the residency period by being in Bahamian waters for twenty-four hours. If you are choosing to renew your vows you are not required to apply for a license.
