If you're planning to tie the knot somewhere tropical, Fiji is a brilliant choice. Warm all year round and reliably sunny from July until November, it's perfect for a summer wedding overseas.

Even better, getting married in Fiji is easy. Many of the island resorts will complete a chunk of the paperwork for you and we can organise packages that include everything from the venue to the bouquet and the cake. It's the ultimate spot for a stress-free (and shoe-free!) wedding.

We've put together a list of FAQs about getting married in Fiji, to help you take your first steps towards a far-flung wedding. Once you've covered the bare necessities below, you can simply sit back in the sunshine and let us do the work behind the scenes. 

What is the best time of year to plan a Fiji wedding? 

Fiji's dry season begins in May and runs all the way into mid-October. During this period, the air is clear, and skies are sunny, forming the perfect backdrop for wedding photos. Officially, the rainy season starts in November and lasts until May, but there is still plenty of sunshine between the tropical showers. 

Hotel and resort prices peak over the school holidays from July to August, so you'll get a better deal if you steer clear of the summer rush. We always recommend May and September as our favourite months for Fiji, as the islands are quieter but the weather has already brightened up.

Where is the best place to get married in Fiji?

Fiji is home to 330 islands, so choosing your wedding venue can be a tricky business! In our opinion, the Mamanuca Islands are ideal for a barefoot beach wedding. Located off the western coast of Viti Levu, these sleepy islands boast many secluded boutique resorts, including the award-winning Likuliku Lagoon Resort, where our Signature Fiji wedding package is based.

There are several adult-only resorts on the Mamanucas, making them popular amongst for honeymooners or couples eloping abroad. If you can only spare a few days in Fiji, these are ideal, as they are closer to Denarau meaning passengers can have the island experience even if they are short on time.

How many days should I arrive before my wedding in Fiji?

How do I organise the marriage license?

Some hotels will do all of the legal paperwork before your arrival, as long as they have all the necessary documentation. If this isn’t possible you can go to the office in Nadi when you arrive in Fiji to register for your certificate, before heading to your hotel.

The registry office in Nadi is open from 8.00 am - 4.00 pm on Mondays to Fridays. The office is closed on weekends and public holidays.
