Are you getting married? Congratulations! You can arrange matters with the municipal of Helmond. Report to us that you want to get married in Helmond. You can report your wedding plans from 1 year before your marriage up to 2 weeks before your marriage. We recommend that you hold a minimum of 6 weeks. Include a valid ID of you and your partner and the testimonial form. The municipality checks whether you can marry one another.
Sometimes we need additional documents. For example, if you were born abroad, lived there, you are divorced or if you do not have Dutch nationality. Please contact us by telephone number 14 0492 10 months before your wedding or partnership date. We will then tell you what documents you need to bring with you.
If you both do not live in the Netherlands and you and/or your partner have Dutch nationality, you can only mention your intended marriage/partnership in the municipality of The Hague (The Hague).
If you do not have the Dutch nationality, in many countries it is possible that a spouse accepts the family name of his or her partner when entering into a marriage or partnership (marriage name). In those countries the husband gets the other name. This is a definitive change to the last name. This is not the same as name use, because only the contact name changes. In a number of countries, it is believed that a marriage name can only be chosen at the time of the marriage.
To ensure that you or your partner gets a marriage name, you can contact the nearest embassy or consulate of that country in the Netherlands. Together with your partner and the embassy official, you fill in and sign the 'Declaration on the gender reassignment name in the Netherlands'. You will receive the original statement as soon as possible at the reception of the Stadswinkel or send us to us. We can only guarantee that the marriage name will be immediately included in the marriage or partnership agreement and the Municipal Personal Records (BRP) if we have received the declaration at least 2 weeks before the ceremony.
You can find the 'Declaration of the gender reassignment in marriage in the Netherlands' under forms.
You can already report your plans for 1 year before your wedding day or partner registration. The last option for the report is 2 weeks before your wedding. Do you have to submit documents to the municipality that come from abroad? Keep in mind that 2 weeks are too short. We advise you to contact us 10 months in advance via 14 0492. Then we will gladly tell you if and which documents you have to deliver.

In addition to these wedding venues, the municipality has designated 11 locations where you can completely complete your marriage in your own way. You can check the locations via the 'apply online' link under 'forms'.
You can also choose a 'one-time wedding location'. This can be at your home or in a special place. In the 'one time wedding location' form, you will read what conditions such a location should meet.
The report of intended marriage or partnership costs nothing. The total costs depend on the location, the day and time of the marriage or registered partnership and the purchase of a marriage certificate. You pay the costs via iDEAL if you digitally report your intended marriage or partnership. It is possible that the location will charge extra for the rental of the wedding room. You pay these costs directly to the location.
