Wedding anniversary and centenarians

The City of Brussels celebrates anniversaries of people living on its territory by organizing a reception in honor of their 50th, 60th, 65th and 70th wedding anniversary. This is also done for centenarians. The jubilee can be accompanied by family and friends.


About 4 months before the anniversary date, the jubilees receive an invitation letter from the civil registrar, stating the steps to be taken.

The invitation is completely free to accept.

Ten days before the date, the time of the ceremony is determined and the jubilees receive the necessary documents.


A personalized ceremony takes place at the City Hall (Wedding Room or Ogival Room depending on availability).

This celebration is followed by a drink in the presence of the Civil Registry officer.
