They must all be different because we brought in our original documents and what she did was make copies of our originals and put a note at the bottom saying that is was a valid copy & notarized it - fyi.

The website says 48 hours. I am doing the same. . coming in on Wednesday and getting married Saturday. As for paperwork I just sent mine. I sent our notarized passports and original copies of our birth certificates. Since it has the raised seal, the notary said they do not notarize the birth certificates. I sent mine via FedEx. I wanted someone to sign that they received it. You have to watch because FedEx, UPS etc won't deliver to P O Boxes. My Travel Agent found out directly from Chandyln that if you leave off the PO Box on the address.. .the package will go right to the hotel. Chandyln should receive it this week. . so I will keep you posted on how it worked out and if Isent the correct paperwork. I did it a few weeks in advance in case I had to resend anything..

I just sent my documents via registered mail from Canada. It cost $19 for the shipping and the ridiculously over-priced envelope. I'll let everyone know how long they took when they get there.

 

ETA: I have no idea when my documents arrived but apparently they are there. I didn't get any update on the Canada Post tracking number or an email from Chandlyn but when I emailed to ask her if she had received them and she confirmed that our paper work had arrived.

naga0066,

 

we got married already so we're also doing the renewal of vows ceremony. I emailed Chandlyn today asking that very question about the required documents for our ceremony since we don't need a license and I'll post her response when I get it.

Thanks! I apprecaite it... I just confirmed my wedding but it isn't until Jan 2009 so I don't want to bombard Chandlyn with questions just yet. It would be great to know though! :) Also, have you seen the wording for the renewal of the vows verse a regular ceremony?

No I haven't seen any wording yet. We're having an elder from our church as our officiant so I'm hoping he has something to show me before we go otherwise I'll have to do some searching just in case they don't have anything. Or, we'll do our own vows.

 

Chandlyn STILL hasn't replied to that email about the required docs. I resent it today and hopefully she gets back to me very soon because my next step would be to call somebody above her and she does not want to deal with that because that would not be pretty (for somebody). So standby for that info...

 

Congrats on finally setting your date though.

My agent is telling methat Valeria @ Riu stated 72 hours requirement before wedding. My agent states all other Jamaican weddings that she has done at other resorts follow Jamaican government requirement of 48 hours. We are still checking on this.

That would be really crappy! What if you booked your flight and whatnot already? I changed my arrival date from Wed to Tues (Sat wedding) next year for my own sanity!! Watch them shift that to 96 hours by the time its my turn!!

You must be in Jamaica 2 full business days before the wedding. Our wedding was on Friday and we arrived on Tuesday. The 2 full business days being Wednesday & Thursday. FYI.

    • 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?
