Will my wedding be legal?

Yes it is legal and you do not have to register it when you return home. Although Civil marriages that are solemnized abroad are legally recognised, they cannot be registered in your own country.

Can I just book a wedding or do I have to book flights and accommodation?

Our wedding specialists at Tropical Sky will book the complete package for you, therefore taking the stress out of the arrangements.

If I wanted to book just the wedding can you do this?

No, we will only book the wedding if you book flights and accommodation with us.

How do I book a wedding?

Once you have booked your chosen resort and hotel, our specialists will request a wedding date (and time) and this will be forwarded to the wedding co-ordinator at the hotel. Confirmation of the date usually comes back within a week. If the date is not available she will advise of an alternative.

What will the wedding package include?

This varies from hotel to hotel. Our wedding co-ordinators will be able to advise you.

How much does a wedding cost?

This depends on your chosen hotel. Some hotels offer a FREE wedding so please contact our wedding co-ordinators.

What paperwork do I need?

Please see our complete list of what paperwork is required. We suggest you forward us photocopies of the documents at least 8 weeks prior to the departure date. The original documents will have to be taken with you to the hotel.

What happens when we get to our hotel?

The hotel wedding co-ordinator will arrange a meeting with you and take you through the day’s proceedings. She will also show you where the wedding can take place, for example use beach or gardens. At this stage it is advisable to let her know if you need any extras that are not included in your wedding package, such as photographer, steel band, hairdresser etc. A list of wedding extras can be requested but these will have to be paid for locally.

There is just the two of us, will we need witnesses?

Yes. These can be friends that you meet in the resort or members of the hotel staff.

How long does the ceremony last?

Usually 15-20 minutes. After this there is the signing of the register, a toast to the bride and groom and photographs.

How do I carry my wedding dress?

We suggest you pack it with tissue paper into a strong suitcase and check it in as luggage. However, this will form part of your luggage allowance. On arrival at your hotel it is best to hang it up in the bathroom to allow the creases to drop out.

If we have friends and family staying at another resort can they attend our wedding?

If you are staying in an adults hotel it is unlikely that the hotel will allow children to attend. If your hotel is not adults only then the hotel may charge for your guests to attend.

Will we receive our marriage certificate before we leave to come home?

In most circumstances the answer is yes. Occasionally, however, the hotel may ask for a home address so that it can forwarded onto you.
