Hi girls, 

 

Can't believe it's taken me this long to post on here. I have been reading this thread since late last year but never posted as I felt I would be butting in on a conversation (silly I know) lol !!!

 

We get married on the 17th May 2011 at The Moon Palace Cancun, and I am WAY behind all of you in planning.

 

Just wondered if I could ask you what you all did for translations of birth certificates ? I called the translation company that Thomas Cook gave me and they quoted me £489.20 for translation and to be legalized. Is this the norm ? I was a bit shocked at the price but have no one to compare with.

 

I would love to hear what you did about this.

 

Thanks

Jo x

Hi Jo welcome.gif nice to have you on board! Congrats on your very soon wedding :o)

hiya hun that is the price i got quoted from them to, ive since been told by my wedding co ordiantor we dont need to have all that done. (so just check) but also check that theres not a place that do it for you as we got quoted 150-200 to have translations done with stamps. but then you have to send them of yourself. i think thos with thomas cook you send your birth certificate off an they do everything for you like sending it to embassy they recieve it bk an check b4 sending it back to you so less stress i suppose. x x

Thanks Michelle,

 

I just thought all brides from U.K had to have birth certificates translated, I'd better check through my wedding pack again just to make sure we need it doing.

All the hotels are different though so i would check. I have it confirmed on email that we dont need to take them. Our WC said we would only need them if the bride had been married before. One of the girls on my hotel forum said that just this week we defo dont need them. All we need is our passports and the visa card they give you at the airport. I'm glad as its just another expence. Have you looked on the forgein commonwealth website? That is were my friend sent hers to get legalised, not sure about the translation though.

I have looked on the Commonwealth website, but they only legalize once they have been translated. At the moment it costs £28 per certificate. The price from the translation company includes this so when you minus that cost from the total their fees for translation are quite steep. 

Will see if I can get prices from elsewhere just incase we do need them x

Oh ladies btw remember I posted on here the other week all the craziness that was happening with my resort banning outside photographers and us trying to make sure we are on the "special list" so we can still have our outside photographer at our wedding??? Well now they posted on their facebook page and emailed few girls on the other forum that are getting married there, that it was "confusion" and that if couple wants to hire non-resort photographer they are more than welcome to do so; and in addition they even decided to remove a "day pass" payment for them too!!!! WTF???!!! So we went through that stress for nothing....:/ It all sounds weired to me, but hey as long as our guy is there to take our pictures it doesn't matter lol :D

Hope everyone's planing is going very well :))

 

 

xoxo



Hopefully i will get pix, and i will post :-) x Sat 26th, im so excited x

 

Great news on photog :-) As you say though as long as he is there taking your pix!!! But it does seem strange!!! xx

Hi Jo, welcome to the site!!!!....butting in on a conversation....lol!!  We had to get just Richards birth certificate translated & his name change deed poll certificate as he changed his surname 4 years ago.  First Choice quoted us £430 but I did it myself & paid in total £130.  All I did was send the docments to the foreign office to be legalised & then to a translation company 'Wolfestone Translations'  to translate them.....really easy process.  Let me know if you have to get any done & I am happy to help :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
