Puerto Rico Wedding Requirements

Please contact your Rincon Wedding Venue's staff for assistance to complete the following requirments:

  • First, you have to go to a laboratory and take the blood tests.
  • Cost is approximately $80.00 a person. It takes 3 to 5 business days to get the results.
  • Once you have the labratory results, you have to go to the local "registro demográfico" with the blood tests.
  • You will need a $20.00 stamp (sello) that you get from the "Colecturía" to get the marriage license,
  • After this, you can go to the "tribunal, sala de jueces" to get the license approved.
  • With your approved license, you can get married at the same office - or make arrangements with a pastor to get married. Local ministers generally charge approximately $250 (200.00 for his services and 50.00 for use of the church).
  • Once the ceremony is completed, you'll receive a call from "registro demográfico" letting you know that your marriage certificate is ready.
