Tout ce qu’il faut savoir pour se marier à l’île Maurice

Since you are reading this article, you might be wondering: “Can I get married in Mauritius?” The answer is YES! Should you have any additional questions, here are some Frequently Asked Questions to help you decide.

1. Are there any administrative steps to take for a wedding in Mauritius?

The required pre-wedding procedures may vary depending on your nationality. We recommend that you liaise with our expert planner to get more details.

2. Are we subject to a minimum of hotel nights to get married in Mauritius?

Indeed, it is advisable to arrive at least three days prior to the event and to leave after a minimum of three days, in order to complete all required procedures. Kindly note that public offices are generally closed on week-ends. You should plan to stay at least 6 working days.

3. Where can I stay during my wedding in Mauritius?

If you are travelling with your partner and looking for a romantic hideaway, choose the adult-only hotel, Veranda Paul & Virginie, or the private Privilege wing of Veranda Pointe aux Biches. If you are travelling with your family and friends, Veranda Grand Baie and its ideal location at the heart of a lively coastal village or Veranda Palmar Beach and its wide range of seaside pleasures might suit you better. And if you are travelling with children, they will certainly enjoy themselves at the kids’ club of our three kids-friendly hotels.

4. Can we host our wedding ceremony in your hotel?

If you stay at Veranda Resorts, you will have the choice between a free “Classic” ceremony and a paid “Creole” ceremony. An exception to the rule, four-star Veranda Pointe aux Biches offers the classic wedding option for free and a premium “Deep into romance” package at extra cost. Do not hesitate to contact our expert planner to obtain more details on such packages.

5. Which wedding venues are available in your resorts?

First of all, each hotel celebrates only one wedding per day to ensure ultimate exclusivity. For an intimate celebration, you will have access to privatised venues on the beach facing the sea, in a decorated pavilion, or amidst a tropical garden…

6. Does the hotel offer such services as bridal make-up, professional photographer, flowers and music?

Each hotel offers additional services, which are not necessarily included in the above-mentioned packages: Classic, Creole and Deep into Romance. They range from bridal make-up and hairdo at the hotel spa to floral decoration for the ceremony, a bridal bouquet and a buttonhole, music, live guitar, dance shows and DJ, wedding photos and videos… Just to name a few!

7. What does the hotel offer after the wedding ceremony?

After your wedding ceremony, you will have the choice between a romantic dinner under a pavilion on the beach, a special “honeymoon” or “lobster” menu, a breakfast with champagne in an idyllic spot, or in-room romantic ambience… It’s up to you!

8. Can someone help me plan my wedding?

At Veranda Resorts, a dedicated wedding planner will organise your special event for free. You will already be in contact with her before setting foot on the island, and she will take you through every step of your stay until the Big Day.

9. Is there any option free of administrative procedures?

Veranda Resorts can organise a symbolic ceremony for you, where you will benefit from the same hotel services as in any traditional wedding, including a master of ceremony and a souvenir certificate.

10. What if we simply want to renew our vows?

It is possible! We will organise a symbolic ceremony that meets your tastes and wishes!
