Planning to get married in Antigua some time soon? Here is what you need to know:
Antigua stands as one half of two of the most picture-perfect islands in the heart of the Caribbean, an Antigua destination wedding means bright blues skies, waters that match the hue and endless, white sandy beaches. This large floating nation, as well as nearby Barbuda, is infamous for its naval history, including an English Harbour, a restored dockyard, a museum and a marina. When your guests are taking a break from celebrating, there are a slew of hiking trails, most notably Shirley Heights, which used to be a military guard post. For couples who want to have many beach-vibes options, there are at least six to choose from, all with different values and perks, from coves and cliffs to a shallow, translucent sea. No matter where you exchange your vows, an Antigua destination wedding will warm your spirits—and start your marriage off sun-kissed.
Best Time of Year to Get Married in Antigua
Once you send out the ‘save the dates’—everything about getting married suddenly feels real. It’s an exciting moment, but one that many couples deeply discuss before putting it in writing. Especially if you’re having an Antigua destination wedding, securing the ideal weather forecast will ensure the rain clouds stay away. The best time of year is between May and November during the off-season. During these months, nightly rates and nuptial fees will be lower, and the temperature will teeter around 80 degrees. Because it is nestled in the Caribbean, there is a slight risk of hurricanes mid-September to early November, but historically, this island has experienced much turmoil. For fewer clouds (but plenty of tourists!), choose a date between December and April.
Marriage Laws in Antigua
Good news if you have your sights (and deposit) set for an Antigua destination wedding: it is one of the easiest to pull off, legally. Though some countries require waiting periods, here, you can get hitched the same day you arrive when you request a special marriage license. You’ll need to bring your passport, proof of divorce/death if applicable and a completed application, but otherwise, it’s easy-peasy. Make sure to check with a professional to ensure you’re following the rules, just to be safe!
