    I find it extremely hard to get answers too sometimes. Can anybody confirm if you had to forward your original birth certificates to the resort or could you send scanned colour copies? Do you get the originals back...I hope so, lol!

      That's exciting!We don't arrive until the 20th. I feel like it's coming quick!!My colors are Malibu blue and coral accents :D

      We have the same colours... That's too funny! Are you bringing many decorations, etc. down with you? We're bringing favours and centrepieces down, but I'm not sure how the table linens work yet. Does anyone know if you can request specific table linen/table runner colours?

            You have to get original documents Notarized and send those. Lawyers are able to Notarize documents. I went to ours yesterday and got our birth certificates and passports Notarized. He photocopies them than attaches a page with a gold stamp saying the copies are true copies.

             

            It took about 15 minutes for the paper work. Our Lawyer is a family friend so he didn't charge us. I'm not sure how much it would usually cost.

             

            So we send the original Notarized documents to the resort and keep our originals safe at home with us :)

             

            Hope that helps

            Nice! i think the malibu blue will look awesome in Jamaica! We're bringing favous and some decorations (lights, paper lanterns etc) Not sure what we're doing for centrepieces yet..I was considering bringing them but I'm worried about weight... I think you can request colours for the table linens..I wanted white with a blue runner.

                Hi...would any brides be willing to share a copy of their ceremony script (non religious). We have part of ours done, but we're still trying to piece together some sections. If you could PM me that would be great! Thank you :)
