sending wedding docs to Sandals WC in Miami

Recommended Posts

The WC in Miami is telling me I have to use UPS, FedEx or DHL to send my mariage application and birth certificates. The cheapest price for any of these couriers is $20. I'm not trying to be cheap but why can't I send the paperwork certified mail with a signature upon receipt via USPS? I'm not sending our original birth certificates (we had copies notorized for free at the bank) so it's not really the end of the world if they get lost. And the wedding is 7 months away so I have plenty of time if something does happen.

 

This is the response I got from the WC when I questioned it:

It is recommendable to use a currier service when sending documents; these are important details you donâ€t want to get lost in regular mail. These will also be delivered to our office where someone will have to sign for these documents and is done in a timely manor, please let me know if you have any questions, thank you.

 

Did any other Sandals/Beaches brides use the good old fashioned postal service and not have any issues?

We used the post office, and things arrived no problem. There's a definite difference between a regular stamp, and a $20 charge!

 

My suggestion would be to mail it through the USPS first, and if it arrives with no issue, great! If not, then you can go the UPS/DHL/etc route. Most likely that won't be necessary, and you'll save yourself $20!

Her email says "recommend" not "required" so I would try USPS & see : )

 

They will call or email you if they need more from you (that's what they told us but we never heard from them)

How come you are sending them so early? Our wedding planner and paperwork had specific time lines for everything to be mailed in. We were married in january at beaches(our paperwork said sandals/beaches, so I think its the same type of paperwork) and our paper work could not arrive more than 60 days before our wedding date and could only be notarized up to 90 days prior or something like that. So we got everything notarized the first week of november and sent everything the second week. I would def double check your paperwork guidelines. Our wedding planner was very stern about the time line because the paperwork can technically expire etc

Meagan - Thanks for the tip - I'll have to check the paperwork before I mail it. I was going to send them now so I don't forget!

 

I know there's a fee if it arrives less than 60 days prior to the wedding date. When I talked to the WC last month, she didn't say anything about sending the forms too early. She just told me to send them.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
