I think Chandlyn sdaid they mail me a certificate but my question is what do i do with it??? Do I have to go to the court house or soemthing to register it here in canada. Thanks again ladies for you answers

You don't have to register it in Canada, but you will need it if you are planning on changing your name or anything like that.

FYI .. If anyone is looking for a photographer, we just booked ours. His name is Roan Robinson. He is out of Negril (but does travel throughout Jamaica) and is an "up and coming" photographer so his prices are pretty decent compared to the others. His website is roanphotography.com  So far he has been great through email and when requesting information on prices and everything else. I have high hopes for our day =)

Hi Ladies!

  Let the countdown begin!!  (I am getting married January 12, 2012) and could not become any more excited to go!  I know all of our guests are gearing up for a great get away!  I have one question for everyone regarding the marriage certificate.

  First off, I'm from Minnesota and we are getting married at the resort and not before hand.  Do I need to bring a marriage certificate down with us or do they provide one?  (I don't remember).

 

Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Thank You

Sam

I just got an email from Donnalee on Friday (at last) saying she had our marriage certificate and was going to mail it, but wanted to verify the home address first.  That's the proof that you're married in case you're changing your name and bank account names, credit card names, all that stuff. You may need to make a couple of copies and have them notarized, but I'm not sure how it works. I'm not changing my name and we've been living together for about 9 years so we've already sorted out the "together" stuff. I'm quite happy being me and don't want to change my name. I've done it before and it just isn't a big deal.

I am getting married the day after you!  And busybee is the day before you!  What time are you getting married at?  I hope you don't mind that I'm going to creep your wedding!!


You don't have to bring a marriage certificate with you because your marriage certificate will be Jamaican.  They provide it for you.

 

What day do you arrive at the resort?

Hey ladies!! Congrats to all the new brides.... I've had a few brides message me about Merrick Cousley  and using him as a photographer but for some reason the site won't let me private message back so I figured I'd just make a post. 

 

In my opinion, Merrick is a WONDERFUL person to work with! Such a sweet and kind person, very professional and I loved my pictures and have gotten MANY comments on how awesome they look so I highly recommend him!

 

Between my wedding day and the trash the dress he took almost 1700 pictures!!! And his prices are amazing, compared to many other photographers!!

 

I have about 500 of my pictures posted on Facebook so for anyone who wants a sneak peek of my pictures, feel free to add me.... Sarah Connors Espejo

 

Otherwise, here's a slide show sneak peek that Merrick made for us.

Well I've finally managed to read/scan through all 300 pages of posts and I must send a big thanks to all the past, present, and future brides of GBP.  All your comments and information are so helpful and it is greatly appreciated.  Everyone's pictures are absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait to experience GBP for myself.  We were actually considering doing a site visit because we just didn't know what to expect in planning a DW, but we've decided against it; mostly because all the helpful info here and the WC have been fairly quick in getting back to me recently, which helps with peace of mind.

 

So, our date is booked and confirmed with the resort, met with our TA today who is going to get me pricing as soon as it's available, and our STDs will go out after the holidays.  Think I may be a bit ahead of the game because I've already designed all my STD's and invites, have a pretty good idea of what I'm getting for OOT bags/favours and bringing for decorations.  I think I'm gonna pass on spending a chunk of money on flowers that you can't bring home or fake ones that no one really keeps and just use fans or parasols for my BM, and I'm going to attempt making shell bouts for the guys; trying to channel my inner DIY creativity...lol :)  Oh, and I got my DRESS...I know it's really early but I could not wait to go shopping for it (I've been waiting 6 yrs for this to come), and I just knew when I put it on, I love it!!  So excited woot.gif

 

Hope everyone has a upcoming great holiday and happy planning!!!

@ Espejo, gorgeous pics!!!

 

@Kim, congratulations and  welcome.gif  You're way ahead of the game, that's awesome!!! It must be so refreshing to get a list of things finished early, so that leaves you with extra time to tweek things here and there and relax. You're motivating me to get things started. Although we are 2013 brides, time goes by so fast, it will be here before we know it!
