    We got married at GBP and a work friend got married at Beaches or Breezes and both of us got a certified copy of our marriage certificate before we left the resort! both of us have used our marriage certificates for changing our names and never once had an issue. so talk to your WC about getting your copy right from her.

              That is funny. Beverly assured us at least one million times that we would have our certificate within 5 days as we paid for the expedited service. That was the whole point of staying there for 2 weeks and actually choosing it over ROR and Iberostar. Here we are, almost 8 weeks later and there is not a sign of anything remotely looking like a reply from her or a package from DHL. However, she sent us our wedding pictures (Those 10 free pics included in the package, it is another story how we got the other 500) almost immediately knowing that it is something that can wait (unlike our certificate which we need ASAP for quite serious reason).
              I mean she was perfect to deal with directly, she is lovely, but when it is comes to some serious business it seems like no one bothers. Jamaica, mon?
              It is upsetting to have a wonderful wedding but to deal with their bull before it and after it.
              sorry for complaining guys.

                Ok, I am confused. Do I need to do anything before leaving the states? Or can we do everything in Jamaica and then get the info sent to me after the wedding? Please help! I don't know a lot about the legal aspects of all of this! Thanks ladies.

                    I don't want to freak anyone out, becuase I think we are definitely the exception not the norm.  But, it took us a year to get the official certificate.  It took dozens of emails to RMB and Riu in general to finally get it sent to us.  We weren't too worried as I wasn't planning on changing my name, and his company let him put me on his insurance without any documentation.   And, thankfully, we had no other need for the official certificate.

                      Just to update: We finally got our Marriage Certificate!! It took 7 months and 6 days. After the 6 month mark I was starting to worry and contacted my WC. She said she would look into it at the beginning of December and I never heard back from her. I am so relieved we finally have the official document and I can begin the name change ritual!!
