    I am getting married June 11th. I am not sending my documents to Jamaica since I am not getting married at a resort. The resorts states documents need to be there 30 days before your wedding date but the Ministry states everything can be done upon arrival as long as you wait the 24hour waiting period before the wedding. It states that the birth certified needs to include the father's name. Mines does not have my father's name listed but FI does. What do I need to do? Will this be a problem? I call the Ministry and did not receive a clear answer. Please Help? Everything is ready and in place. I also am bringing the originals of all documents as well as notarized copies. I just want assurance. I am so excited and it seems too good to be true to be getting married in Jamaica in least than one month. I sittind around thinking whats the worse can happen. I guess I should just stop with the negativity.

      I haven't heard of this issue before, so I am not sure I can help, but do you have a coordinator in JA that can assist you? Otherwise, I would call the place that you will be married and ask for their assistance. It would SUCK to get there and find out that you don't have everything that you need!

        I really have no idea if it will effect your process...but...

        If the resorts don't specify that the birth cert need a father's name I'm sure that other brides who have gotten married at resorts also didn't have a father listed on their birth certificate!! I would say it won't be an issue!! I really wouldn't worry about it because the only difference between your wedding and one on a resort is that you don't have the resort wedding coordinator. We've never heard of an issue with birth certificates before so you will be fine I'm sure

        I totally understand why you're stressing but when you're this close...everything starts stressing you out!! hah! Just relax and enjoy it all. Everything will work itself out and everything will be perfect!!

        Good luck with everything and Enjoy the process!!
