How long do we need to be in Grenada before we can get married?
In Grenada the law requires that visitors be resident on the island for a minimum of three (3) days (including weekends and public holidays) before applying for a licence.
On the 3rd day we need to allocate time to apply for and collect the wedding license. Therefore you can get married from the 4th or 5th day of being in Grenada. Generally the licence is ready within two (2) working days.

This gives you and your guests details about the destination, flight and accommodation booking services (with discounted group travel costs) and other useful travel information. This service is exclusively available for free to Grenada Wedding UK clients. To receive A Just Grenada ‘plan your trip’ pamphlet & find out more about this service, click here >>>
Wedding-moon - When getting married abroad some couples choose to limit the number of invited guests. Indeed many couples come alone and enjoy a combined wedding and honeymoon. If this is the case you may wish to send a wedding announcement. This can be done “Spice Island Style” by ordering and returning home with duty free spice bags to give to your family and friends at home as your wedding announcement.
Wedding Website – Many couples create their own website as it works perfectly as a ‘Save The Date’ invitation, also as a resource for all information, including details of your Wedding Gift Registry. The ‘wedding website’ is a great place to post photo’s and details after the wedding for those guests that could not attend.

Why do you recommend 'Just Grenada' as the travel agents for flight and hotel arrangements?
Many couples that have planned their wedding with us have previously commented that they wish they had one company to make all of the travel arrangements for them and their guests. Couples have in fact stated the only stressful part of planning their wedding was organising and advising their invited family and friends, when to book, how to book flights and accommodation & some couples have previously spent hours researching suitable places for them to stay. There is no need to do that with the services of Just Grenada travel experts.
Grenada Wedding teamed up with Just Grenada ( winners of the AITO travel company of the year 2006) to take care of your travel arrangements from the UK & Europe to Grenada. This way we ensure a relaxed bride & groom.
Because 'Just Grenada' take care of virtually all of our clients they offer special complimentary gifts to our couples and not only that, they keep track of where all of the couples friends and families are staying (including arrival and departure dates – which is perfect if the couple need to request an accommodation list to have welcome leaflets & gifts placed into their guest rooms).
Your invited guests may have varied accommodation, needs, different budgets from each other and most often have questions that you may not able to answer. Just Grenada travel agents know Grenada intimately and can answer questions, recommend & reserve the best places to stay within you and your guests budget – as well as advising your guests how close or far their location is from their wedding site & other important details.
When you or your guests make travel plans with Just Grenada, airport transfers to and from your accommodation can be arranged for you. Having someone waiting to meet you in a new country promises a warm welcome & peace of mind, and saves the wedding couple from feeling they have to meet every incoming guest, thus wasting precious holiday time waiting at the airport.
Remember your destination wedding is also a holiday for your guests, they are undertaking time & expenditure to join you - so it makes sense to provide them with contact details of a caribbean holiday specialist at the same time you are inviting them to join you.
