Always contact the Civil Affairs department of the municipality before submitting the report online ! Often additional documents are required. For example, if you were born abroad, if you lived there or were divorced there. Or if you do not have Dutch nationality. Do this well in advance of the date of your marriage or partnership to avoid disappointment.

Report your marriage or partnership at least 2 weeks before the date. You can do this with the civil registrar of the municipality.

  • You are both 18 years or older
  • You are not married and do not have a registered partnership
  • You are not directly related
  • Are you under guardianship? Then permission from your curator is required.

When you register your marriage, you make a number of choices, which you communicate to the municipality. These choices relate to the ceremony and the venue. The costs depend on your wishes and the possibilities of the municipality.


The ceremony is the official part of your marriage. You can choose from:

  • marriage free of charge;
  • simple ceremony;
  • elaborate ceremony.

If you opt for an elaborate ceremony, you determine who leads the ceremony. You have the following choices:

  • A wedding registrar from the municipality. The wedding registrar will contact you a few weeks before the wedding date to introduce themselves and find out more about you and your future spouse. If you have a preference for a wedding registrar, inform the municipality of this.
  • A family member or acquaintance. If you would like a family member or an acquaintance to be your own wedding registrar, contact the municipality.

Wedding venue

You can get married in various places. You can choose from:

  • a wedding venue of the municipality;
  • a wedding venue of your own choice. Notify the municipality of your venue. To do so, use the contact form. You may have to pay for a wedding venue of your own choice.

The costs are divided into categories. The categories that are always charged can you find on the website.
