Morgan,

I totally lost this thread...we finally went and applied about 3 weeks ago and last week I checked the system and we were in it so I printed off the status sheet that said processing. The guy at the post office said he didn't know for sure because nobody who was trying it called him back to let him know how it went...but he said the form says we would need to show the proof of application processing and should also bring the copy of the passport application (we made a copy after the guy stamped it all).

I don't know now if we will end up going down there...but if we do, that is what we are bringing....

hmm..I wonder if they will want the one w/ a seal?? I made photocopies of ours before I sent them off??

When I flew to mexico, before you needed a passport, you had to have the Birth certificate with a seal. I had to reorder mine recently, because I had the Abstract form with a seal, but for a passport they need the long form. I ordered it all online & it came in quick. maybe just a week or two.

That's right! I remember when DH got his passport in the mail and his BC was with it. I'd double check to see if you could use the one you photo-copied, since they'll know that they have your real one!

you can always use a passport expedite service. actually this is something you can do yourself but it was worth it to me to pay this company $200 to not have to drive to LA and spend all day at the passport office. with proof of travel within 2 weeks take all the stuff you need to the office and they will give you a passport right there on the spot. i accidentally washed mine and it was trashed. so last week i sent all my stuff to this place. they received it monday and i had my new passport by thursday morning at 10 am. even if i would have wanted to do it myself i really couldnt have because i couldnt get an appointment. they were all booked. im sure this place has standing appointments. they have offices in LA and DC i believe so they operate nationally.

I'm pretty sure that you wouldn't also need a birth certificate because I know when you apply for one they actually take your BC and send it in with the application. I think anyone who is planning on traveling without a passport should call their airline to make sure they are bringing whatever necessary document is needed.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
