32 Islands 1000 Possibilites

Over the years, St. Vincent and the islands of the Grenadines have become a popular choice for destination weddings. As a result, there are now a number catering companies and photographers, along with a trusted network of reputable and reliable suppliers, whose combined experience and local knowledge ensure that the couple and their guests have ample time to relax and enjoy these lovely islands at their leisure. St. Vincent and the Grenadines possess all of the necessary ingredients to ensure a perfectly romantic wedding day. There are countless venues from which to choose:

• Sandy white beaches

• A hilltop at sunset

• Sailing around a picturesque harbor

• A lush tropical garden surrounded by colorful blooms

• Deserted island

St. Vincent and the Grenadines is one of the few countries where you can obtain a marriage license after being in the country for only one day. This license is issued in one day and can be obtained through the office of the Solicitor General in Kingstown which is open Monday - Friday 8:30am - 3:00pm. Isolated beaches, romantic moonlit evenings, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, walks, hikes, island explorations and island nightlife are but a handful of the possibilities available when you choose St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
