    sorry the $2000 I think only apply to those who live in Quebec and want to change their names. When you come back you have the choice in ON you can change all your info with your Husband last name or you don't have to.. right?! not sure.. But here in Quebec there is no choice, you keep your last name, so if you really wanted to change it, it'd cost $2000.

    I'll be using WEDO as well, I will do it 2 and half months before we leave. It's only good for 3 months the paper

        I heard and was told by my Coordinator it can take between 6-8 weeks.

        My question is what do I do with my spanish certificate? do I translate it into english? and will I have to legalize it as well?

        thanks for anyone who can answer this for me

        We used the consulate in Montreal, there was no problem but more $$ then WEDO ($360US)

                  thank you so much. we were extremely pleased w/the pics. we went w/photo souvenir. they were very reasonable compared to what we would've paid here, we had all our prints and dvds before we left. the photog was alot of fun, on time and very organized.

                    aww!! I really wanted to use them, but by the time I started looking for photographer's they were already booked. So I booked to HCD.. I've seen a lot of pictures so far I don't regret it but the true test will be my wedding and TTD session!

                    Thanks again for the link it was helpful! :)
