The Virgin Islands is really easy - you just fill out all the paperwork ahead of time and when you arrive at the port you would just need to go to the courthouse to pick up your license which is ready to go (with an escort is best). If you speak to a WC in the area (Island Beach Weddings or Perfect Virgin Island Wedding Day) they can arrange everything for you and get you where you need to go and get married wherever you choose on the island! : ) Hope this helps some!
Different websites seem to have different requirements listed. This one says you must be on the island two days before your wedding (Dutch side only):

We're doing a 7 day cruise and I don't think it will be too long at all. People won't always be all over you to visit with all the time, it's their vacation too and will want to enjoy it how they like as well.

A weekend in cruise goes so FAST!!!!
I would do the 7 day because your on a ship with thousands of others and you don't have to see your guest if you don't want to.
You can plan your own excursions, onboard activities and dinner times WITH or WITHOUT your guest.
A longer cruise gives you so much more to see & do.
We have done a 3 day & a 4 day cruise just us and we wanted MORE MORE MORE.
Our wedding cruise will be our longest at 7 days and we have invited guest to come along.
We are planning some group activities and alone time activities.
We are also giving guest all their options so they will have things to choose from.
Most of our guest have never cruised before so we wanted to help them in that way.
