Aruba wedding - need help!
Posted 16 June 2009 - 03:28 PM
I'm looking into Aruba for our wedding and noticed that most resorts require a birth certificate - is this just required for the civil ceremony?
It may be easier for us to obtain a birth certificate in our hometown and just have the beach ceremony in Aruba.
Do we need to provide proof of marriage to just have the beach ceremony?
Can you please pass along any recommendations for a ceremony/reception site
Any help would be really appreciated!

In order to have your civil ceremony in Aruba, the following documents need to be submitted weeks prior to your chosen wedding date:
1.Completed Letters of Intent. Bride and Groom must each fill out one of these forms individually and sign at the bottom.
2.Birth Certificates of each with a Raised Seal and parents name stated on them.
3. If divorced an Official Divorce Decree or if widowed an Official Death Certificate
4. Negative Statement of Marriage for both. This is a documents obtained either at your Civil Registry, Department of Health or Bureau of Vital Statistics. It is a search of your records stating that at the current date, both of you a not married and therefore free and eligible to marry each other.
5. An Apostille Report from your State Department (Secretary of State) certifying the authenticity of your Birth Certificate and Negative Statement of Marriage.
6. Copy of Passport ID pages or a valid ID for both of you as well as for your two witnesses.
Hope that Helps!
