ST. THOMAS WEDDINGS & HONEYMOONS
Thinking about getting married? St. Thomas is the perfect place for a destination wedding and/or honeymoon. There are no residency requirements, physicals, or blood test requirements. The license you receive is a legally binding U.S. marriage license. However, you do not need to be a U.S. citizen to get married here. Some couples choose to get married on gorgeous Magens Bay Beach or scenic Picara Point. With romance already built into our beautiful suites, Picara Pearl Villa & Suites would be the perfect accommodations while you prepare to get married and for your honeymoon.

Here is your Guide to Getting Married in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Download and complete the marriage application form and marriage license form. BOTH FORMS MUST BE TYPED. Mail the forms (2 of them) along with $200 ($100 for application fee and $100 for the license) certified check or money order to the court (no personal checks accepted) made payable to the "Superior Court of the Virgin Islands."
It is also a good idea to enclose a letter stating your arrival and departure date to the island, wedding date, the name of your officiant, when you will visit the courthouse to pick up your marriage license, and your contact information (phone number and email address). If either party has been divorced, a certified divorce decree with a judge's signature must be enclosed. If either applicant has been widowed, a certified death certificate must be filed with the application.
