Package add-on: Legal Wedding
The wedding costs include blessing ceremony only. Legal wedding requirements are extensive here, and most our wedding couples prefer to do their legal wedding in their country of origin, and have their blessing ceremony here. If you opt to do your legal wedding here as well, legal marriage costs are $350. The legal marriage requirements include:
- a valid passport (or your cedula for Honduran citizens)
- occupation of bride and groom
- a certified copy of your birth certificate
- blood test- AIDS screening and blood type
- letter attesting to single status that has been prepared by a city official in your country of citizenship that has been authenticated by the Honduran Embassy in your country. If you have been married previously, a divorce certificate plus letter of single status needed to be supplied
- two witnesses with valid passports, cannot be relatives (we can help you wtih this if just the two of you are coming)
The birth certificates and letter of single status must have a Spanish translation provided, which has been professionally translated and stamped.
Most of this paperwork has to be submitted to the City Hall in Roatan at least 2 weeks before the wedding, so this information can be faxed down for submission (and then they’ll need the originals when you arrive).

Wedding guest reviews for Barefoot Cay weddings
Mel took care of everything
"There's a reason Barefoot Cay is #1 for Roatan. It's Mel. Actually it's Mel and all of the people at the Cay. It is truly a special place that I miss very much. I know we will travel there again in the future.
I got married at Barefoot Cay last year (I'm at the bottom of the wedding pictures on their website.) From months before we got there, to our entire stay, to an email wishing us a happy first year anniversary Mel has been AMAZING! Mel took care of everything- and became family. You'll see. You'll want to adopt her too. :)
How did I get to a little cay off an island off Honduras? Trip Advisor! Thank you to everyone who posted their experience. Since a wedding is so important and you want everything to go right I wanted to be sure- not sold to- but hear what other people have to say. Everyone was right!! Barefoot Cay is beautiful. Everyone there takes such good care of you, you won't have a worry in the world. The other especially awesome thing about Barefoot is how little it is. We almost had the cay to ourselves- which was WONDERFUL! It was like we owned the whole place- just for our wedding. Having a margarita (delivered right to you in the pool) on the morning of your wedding- with the rest of your family in the pool is a lifetime high! I can't say enough good things about this place."
Attention to detail
"The flowers were awesome and love the decorations...the flower "circle of love," tiki torches, and paper bag candles were the best for me...also the arches along the aisle. You guys were so great and involved, making sure everything was good - I wasn't worried in the least. You bringing the wine to the room, stopping in to make sure I wasn't going to bail (haha), and sending all of the pictures you took were all nice touches and made me feel extra special. I think that one of the best features of your resort is attention to detail and personal service."
Loved our stay
"My wife and I loved our stay at Barefoot Cay Resort. We found it to be a perfect place to have a small wedding ceremony!"
"The wedding went off without a hitch, the site was decorated beautifully, the meal was fantastic and they let us take over the dining area to have a reception that night. It was the perfect wedding."
Private, quiet, beautiful
"A group of 16 traveled to Roatan for our wedding and Barefoot Cay was the perfect location. Private, quiet, beautiful, and the service was amazing."
Attentive to our special plans
"The small island location was a great place to get away from the crowds, along with the intimacy of the beachfront villas and the constant tranquil sound of waves breaking over the distant reef barrier. The service was personal and very attentive to our special plans and needs, including a wedding cake, flowers, and hairdresser."
"The service was SO great, the wedding was beyond what I was expecting for decorations and such, and especially you...you did so much work and planning for us, we really appreciate it."
"You are in the right business! You helped make a beautiful and meaningful wedding happen and helped the week to sing/hum along. You were and are invaluable!"
"Thank you for all the behind the scene work you did to make our stay so memorable! You are a beautiful and patient person. A million thank yous!"
"You are the greatest! Excellent job this whole week. The passion you bring to Barefoot Cay is wonderful and evident at every turn. The attention to detail at the wedding- superb!"
Wedding day - best ever
"You have been EVERYTHING to me! You helped me plan my Honduran wedding down to the last detail. Thank you so much for making our wedding day the best ever! It wouldn’t have happened without you."
