married in paradise,
and having your honeymoon there. What a way to start!
If you have your heart set on a particular island, check out its legal requirements. See Caribbean Marriage Licenses, with requirements for all islands.
It may be more practical to have a religious ceremony at home, followed by a civil one in the tropics. Much of it is determined by the time you have.
Most islands have streamlined their requirements so you can be married after only a few days. Some will marry you as soon as you fill out the paperwork.

Or you may wonder if it isn't easier to take a cruise honeymoon and be married at sea?
This section isn't to rehash the legal requirements described with the individual islands. Instead, it's to show you some of the possibilities.
