Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue: that adage sums up all the planning and preparation that goes into making your wedding one that you will always remember. However, getting married does not have to break the bank, and the Registrar General’s Department (RGD) has been helping couples to say “I DO” in an affordable, and hassle- free way with its Registry Wedding Service.

The RGD’s Registry Wedding is a private service that offers couples an intimate ceremony. With this service, couples receive: a choice of an outdoor or indoor venue, a Marriage Officer or Civil Registrar to perform the wedding, two certified copies of the marriage certificate within three (3) working days, and an opportunity to include up to 10 persons as guests. Wedding ceremonies are done Mondays to Thursdays between the hours of 9:00am – 4:00pm, and Fridays 9:00am- 3:00pm. Saturday weddings are also available from 9:00am -3:00pm; though by appointment only. 

What to wear on your wedding day? The RGD Wedding service allows couples to get married comfortably clad; so you can get married in the traditional gown and tuxedo or you can opt for more casual attire.  

To access the Registry Wedding service, you must secure a Minister’s license from the Ministry of Justice, and submit this license, along with the birth certificates and valid identification for both the bride and groom to be, as well as to provide the occupation of bride and groom. If either the bride or groom was married before, certified copies of the final divorce papers and the marriage certificate for the previous marriage, as well as death certificate if the spouse is deceased, must be provided. After submitting the application and paying the relevant fees, you will be well on your way to enjoying the convenience of the Registry Wedding service.

Getting Married, Why not use the RGD’s Registry Wedding service? It is a convenient and affordable way to say “I DO”. 

The RGD’s Registry Wedding service is offered at all ten (10) RGD Offices island wide.
