Wedding requirements in St. Barts are a little onerous, so you might consider getting married in your home town and then having a private ceremony on the island. To apply for a wedding license on the island, you or your spouse-to-be must have been living on the island for at least a month. This can be difficult. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get married on St. Barts — it’s actually fantastic island for a wedding.
Getting to St Barts isn’t too hard — you’ll just have to fly in from St. Maarten. There are a lot of small commuter flights on WinAir and St. Barth Commuter. You can get direct flights to St. Marten or connect via Antigua. You can also fly direct from Puerto Rico (via Tradewind Aviation) or Guadeloupe (via Air Antilles or Air Caraibes). If you’re planning a St Barts wedding, it’s nice to know that it’s not too hard to get your guests down to your venue.
