Wedding witnesses

Recommended Posts

So, I noticed on the FAQ from the wedding department at ROR that our witnesses cannot be family. Ummm... Uh oh. Are they serious? We're only having 1 attendant each and FH's is his brother. What do we do? Do we get someone who isn't in the wedding party to be a witness?

I know that for fsil's wedding in Mexico, she couldn't have any witnesses that had the same last name as her or her hubby. she had her aunts as her witnesses. Maybe you just have to pic fam that has different last name as you so they won't know you are related?!

I dont think that's the case for Jamaica?? If it is we should be in trouble because hubby's brother was his witness. No one seemed to have a problem and we now have our official Jamaican marriage certificate so I would say no worries...!!

I noticed that too when I was doing my confirmation. I don't think it would matter too much. Check with Chandlyn.
My question is, does your witnesses necessarily have to be your bm & moh. What if you put someone down that doesn't end up being either your MOH or bm..can you change the witnesses when you get therehuh.gif?? anyone know this....fh doesn't know who he wants to be bm..depends on who would be attending.

This is easing my worries slightly ;-) We we have 4 people with no relation to us at the wedding, one is the MOH, one is the photographer (aunt's husband) and a couple of significant others. We should be ok.

I vaguely remember having to fill out witness information or something when requesting a wedding date. Does anyone know if they do anything with that info? Criminal check (haha) seriously though, what if we do need to choose someone else?

Uh nope. My witness's were my MIL and FIL. I asked Chandlyn before hand and she said they were fine. I also asked about them having to be there a certain number of days and she said they just have to be there the day of. So you're fine.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
