Getting a copy of your Jamaica Marriage Certificate

Recommended Posts

I just filled out the form and sent the money and received my license in 2 weeks. 3 months later I got my license from the resort.

I am just curious.  How much did you have to pay when you filled out the form on the registrars website?  The resort wants $30 a copy (for extras) and I'm strating to worry about how long it is going to take for them to send them if I go that route.

Hi ladies. Well I was married in may of 2010 at GPJ and still have not received our certified copy of our marriage license. I had tried to geta hold of the wedding coordinator but to my dismay they couldnt seem to keep the same one for very long. (When planning our wedding we went through 3!) No one would respond with answers for a very long time. I eventually gave up hope after 2 yrs and life happened. My copy we received the day we were married worked for my licenses, ss card as well as insurance and loans so I didnt think much of it, till this past month when my hubby and I had to send in th same only copy we have for our passport renewal. Im so worried mines going to come back to me not completed because we dont have the certified copy. I guess its back to fighting again with the resort and whom ever the new wedding coordinator is. Does anyone know thw current coordinator and their contact info. It would be exteemly helpful. Thank you.

you need to photocopy all the documents and then have those photocopies notorized.  i had mine done at my bank - most banks will not charge for notary services if you have an account with them.  When you get there you have to bring them the original wedding documents that youi photo copied.  You will get them back immediately.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
