they do everything for you there. you won't get your marriage certificate right away. we got married in October and just got our certificate last week finally, but they did give us a copy of the register to take with us so that we at least had proof. it just won't work for changing your name. but yes - definitely get certified documents that have to stay in Jamaica with the Registrar. we both had our original divorce decree that we left there, and just kept certified copies.

    It depends on what resort you will get married at. All we did was sent our certified birth certificates and that was it. They never asked us to show originals. Also we got this piece of paper that was part of marriage certificate and I changed my drivers license and few other cards without any problems. Clerks sometimes don't know the difference LOL

      For anyone getting married at the RIU i asked if the small birth certificate was ok to use instead of having to order the long form and keisha said yes.... she responded by saying

       

                          

       The short form birth certificate is acceptable, you can send your documents via registered mail.

       

       

      also if you need to get somethign notarized and dont want to pay $ for it you can go to your local MP and they will do it for free!!

                    Hi All!  Planning a wedding in Jamaica for April 2013.  Any suggestions on locations?  Right now I'm tied between Iberostar Rose Hall Grand and Secrets St. James/Wild Orchid Montego Bay.  Any advice would be great!  Thanks!
