A date for contracting a wedding or partnership must be booked online. Please log in using your own DigiD and your partner’s citizen service number.
You can book a date between 2 years and 6 weeks before the day of your wedding or partnership. A simplified or free wedding or partnership can be booked no more than 1 year in advance. Once made, bookings count as definitive.
Days and times depend on the location chosen by you:
- City hall: see page Weddings in the city hall
- Other wedding location: no fixed times
Consult the wedding agenda to find out if your preferred date or time is still available.
Consult the events calendar to find out about possible other events in the Markt or other locations. There is always the possibility of events going on that are not listed on the calendar.
Changing or cancelling a date
You can change or cancel a date online.
Community of property
When contracted, a marriage or partnership automatically implies limited community of property. For more information, consult the website of the Dutch government or contact a civil-law notary.
Booking a date does not imply a guarantee. Your marriage or partnership cannot be contracted until:
- all documents are in order
- you have registered your marriage
- you have paid the charges
Charges in 2021
- Booking/cancelling charges: € 67.35
Consult the page Marriage charges for other tariffs.
Booking charges are due on booking the city hall or a simplified wedding. This amount is deducted from your eventual wedding charges. Charges paid are converted into cancelling charges in case of a change or cancellation. Booking charges apply on each consecutive new booking.
