I'm going to try to go today too. We have our weekends booked for the next month and a half, so I want to get it done while we have time to do it.

Do you think I can go to any bank or do I need to go to an actual notary place?

We're going to Wachovia.

Ok, so I went to Mike's credit union today because he had to deposit a check. The teller said she was also a notary, so she could do it for us. So when I gave her the copies of our licenses and birth certificates, she said there was no way. She said you can't notarize them because (1) you are not allowed to make a copy of a birth certificate in PA (it says it on the certificate itself) and (2) the copies that I gave her were not official documents (they were copies of official documents)??!! So, I thought she just didn't know what she was talking about and we went to another notary. They said the same thing! But in the end I talked the second girl into doing it for us anyway, so I'm relieved. I just can't believe I had such problems! Did anyone else have an issue with this?

I JUST logged on to post this exact same thing! Wachovia said no, absolutely not to both the passport notarizing AND birth certificate.

We ran into SOOOO many problems. I ended up sending my birth certificate itself (no copy) because it had a raised seal on it. The 2nd notary we went to see did the passport and Reggie's birth cert (b/c it's from out of the country) - but apparently I would've had to call the state to ask for a certified copy of my birth cert - which she said would take about 3 weeks. I have 2 copies, so I'm just going to send the 1 I have. SOOOO frustrating!

Random question ... but does anyone know if we need all these forms notarized if we are just doing the Sybolic ceremony? FI and I plan on getting married in the states before we leave... so we aren't technically applying for a marriage licence of Jamaica.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
