Riu Montego Bay - Documents

Recommended Posts

Fellow Riu Brides: What are the necessary documents needed for the wedding? When should I start collecting these things? When do they need to be in by? Do I talk to the coordinator about any of this?


Also, did you have to get blood tests IN Jamaica before the wedding? I'v been told the results from a blood test at home do not count. If this is so, how did your blood drawings go? I don't do well with blood giving so I am VERY nervous about doing this not at home!

Wow that's perfect thank you so much!! About the "name change" doc...does that mean the doc to change my last name to his or just if like I have changed my name in the past for some reason (which I haven't)? Because you don't change your name until after the wedding right? From that list it looks like all we need is the passport and birth certificate copies. That seems almost too easy!?


I am SOOOO glad to hear that a blood test is not required! You are positive about this?!

I believe that the name change document they are referring to is if you've changed your name in the past b/c as you said, you won't be changing your current name to your married name until after the wedding.


Yes, I'm positive about there not being any blood work. I was married at ROR last year & we did not have any blood tests done. If you're still skeptical you can always send an email to the WC to double check.
