Curaçao pt.2- Curaçao Marriott Beach Resort

Curacao Capital City

Curaçao offers all the ingredients for the ideal wedding – a lovely climate, historical country yards, and beaches shaded by coconut trees and washed with crystal clear blue waters. Discover the perfect ambiance for your wedding – whether you desire a beach celebration, or one in an 18th-century church or at one of our renowned hotels and resorts.

Can you tell me about your space, locations and opportunities for weddings?

The Curacao Marriott Beach Resort has various unique locations that couples can choose from however, our most signature location would be directly on the beach overlooking the spectacular ocean view and sunset where you can exchange vows only inches away from the ocean. Curacao Marriott also offers other areas such as around the pool with a direct seaside view or in our ballroom for a more extravagant and formal wedding event. The best time of day to hold the ceremony is right before sunset, which varies depending on the time of year, anywhere from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. Therefore, ideally, 5:30pm is the best time, especially for taking pictures before the sunlight disappears into the night.

What are the heavy times of year you're seeing brides?
Weddings at the Curacao Marriott range all year round however the high and most popular months to get married would be May, June, August and December.

What are the best/signature experiences can a wedding party expect - or most importantly, if a couple is looking for a venue, why would they choose your space/island vs. another?

Can you tell me about marriage requirements, costs or restrictions?

Beginning January 1st 2002, Curacao has officially made it legal for any non-residents to get married on the island. All necessary documents will need to be submitted a minimum of two months prior to the wedding date to the Office of Civil Registry in Willemstad, Curaçao, either by mail or in person, so that there is enough time to process the paperwork. As well you may still prefer to have a civil marriage performed in your own country and have only the religious blessing/ ceremony done on the island. In this case, you will need to submit a copy of the documents needed to the hotel for us to forward to the minister who will perform the ceremony as proof that you are already legally married. We can also arrange for Wedding Vow Renewals, in which case we would also need a copy of your marriage certificate. Couples residing abroad who wish to marry in Curaçao should take account of certain procedures that must be followed before they can enter into matrimony on this island.
