New Marriage License Guidelines

I've just received a copy of the new marriage license guidelines which were released in March, 2008. Puerto Rican law has changed and now you have to get a Gonorrhea and Chlamydia test in addition to the Syphilis test that was already required. Isn’t this such a romantic way to start out a destination wedding blog entry? The new tests take 5 days to complete and you have to add a day on each end just in case. So now you have four tests results required in order to get a Puerto Rico marriage license, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Syphilis and the VDRL test.

So what does this mean to you as a destination wedding couple inquiring about getting married in Puerto Rico? You should call your doctor’s office NOW and tell them what tests you need and your wedding date and that you need the tests done within 14 calendar days of your wedding date and schedule the appointments for you and your fiance accordingly. Remember - no medical paperwork — no marriage license? COMPRENDES!

Final thought, make sure you schedule all tests within the 10-14 day timeframe prior to the wedding date so that no unwanted delays occur! I want your destination wedding day to go as smooth as possible! :)
