Best time of the year for Grand Wedding Ceremonies

If you want your dream wedding to skip all the crowds and noise that comes with a beach destination, consider booking your big day in April and May. This time of the year, crowds are usually few, and the prices are lower. Turks and Caicos boasts year-round enjoyable temperatures and adequate sunshine. Still, it's best to avoid booking your dream wedding from June to November because Hurricanes are frequent during this period to ruin your day. Weddings in winter and early spring are trendy, though they vary in price depending on the month.

Marriage Laws in Turks and Caicos

Before you proceed with your nuptial, you need to know the laws and regulations of Turks and Caicos regarding marriage. Though the island nation maintains some simple process for foreigners to say “I Do” in this tropical getaway, you need to submit a variety of documents, including:

· Birth certificate

· A valid passport

· Affidavit of single status

· Divorce decree (if previously married)

· A death certificate and a copy of the marriage certificate involving the deceased spouse (if a widow or widower)

· Application for a special license

· Parental consent for spouses under the age of 21

You also must arrive at the island 48 hours before submitting your application. That is why destination wedding trips at Turks and Caicos usually last at least one week.
