    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 never heard of that! My MOH is my sister and my FI's bestman is his brother. That's so weird!

        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 there?? 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?

                    I have not heard this either. How many witnesses do we need to have?

                      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.
