Hi Ladies,

 

I finally heard back about the documents required for legal marriage in jamaica and what to do about birth certificates that don't have the father's name... It looks like you need to send a copy of the bride and grooms birth certificate notarized in addition the a notarized letter stating the father's name. Here's the response from the coordinator.

 

We are from Ontario Canada and our birth certificates do not have the fathers name. Can you please let me know what is required in this case?

Attach a letter  on each birth certificate stating the names of the fathers and have that letter notarized .

 

Hope this helps!

If the letter has to be notarized, you might as well just request the long form. It's only $35. A notarized letter will be at least that much.

 

I must say we both thought it was pretty neat to see our mother's writing back when we were born.

To notarize a letter isn't actually that much, but you do have to do your internet research. I need notarized letters each time I leave the country with my 2 sons. He charges me $5/each, but I draft the letters before hand, so all that he has to do is sign and stamp. I used to have a neighbour that was a lawyer, that was helpful, and free!

Alright Ladies....so to update all of us on the whole long form/short form issue that we are all having right now lol, I just got off the phone with the resorts W/C manager at the GPLH (natelie green) and I asked her what we needed to send her still. She stated that IF we want our fathers to be on the wedding certificate at that point we would have to get the letter with both fathers on it(notarized) to her 6 weeks before the wedding, as so they can do all the paperwork on their end.

 

However, if you are not wanting your fathers on your wedding certificate, all you need to fax to them is a copy  both birth certificates(notarized) as well as your photo ID (passport OR license) of the bride and groom (this doent need to be notarized) and then you need to have the paperwork for the resort itself....which has all our deposit info wedding date info ETC which we have ALL done as ALL our dates are set lol

 

I hope this helps, as I know I was happy to find out it was one less thing to do

Ladies,

I got home last night and found my invites waiting for me. Can I tell you how much I love, love, love them!!! When I get home tonight, I will post pics, but if there are any other brides-to-be not wanting to make their own, please check out Kendra www.gottheinvite.com She was fantastic, the easiest person I've dealt with so far, with this wedding planning business. Because of the strike, she had them expedited via purolator. Although, now that I have them, I'm not sure what to do with them because Canada Post is STILL on STRIKKKKEEEEE!!! Boo!

    • 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?
