U.S. Virgin Islands
No Passport Required. How cool is that? The US Virgin Islands of St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas have it all – 18th century architecture, local craft co-ops and artist colonies, plantations, ruins, and nearly untouched jungle.
For couples looking for an ideal Destination Wedding location, these islands have major perks: No passports required for U.S. guests, and gorgeous, unique wedding locales, like historic churches, romantic resorts, and any beach that catches your fancy. You can even get married underwater. Another perk of the islands is the range of accommodations. From camp grounds, to B&Bs, to upscale beach cottages, to resorts, there’s something for every price point.
Couples do have to go in person to the courthouse in St. Thomas, show photo IDs, and sign for the license prior to their wedding day, but that’s the steepest hurdle to getting married on one of the three islands. You’ll need to submit the paperwork at least eight days before your arrival in the territory, along with a check for $200 – so it does take a little more planning than, say, Las Vegas. But not by much!
Island Overview: St. Thomas, the capital of the islands and the most populated island, has the big resorts (Marriott, Best Western, larger family-owned beach resorts) and a faster paced energy around the towns. St. Croix is the largest island of the three, but is far to the south of the other two, and has one large resort, and then a collection of small beachfront hotels and cottages. St. John has only a few resorts and a small town, but most of it is covered with the Virgin Islands National Park. We like Westin St. John Resort and Villas on St. John, but adventurers might like the eco-lodges and camp sites.
