Not happy about my Marriage License

Recommended Posts

It has been 4 months since I was married at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort and Spa and I have yet to receive my Marriage license.  At the beginning, I was told it would take about 2 months to receive.  After about 2 1/2 months I sent an email to my wedding coordinator Yolandi, in which she responded that normal time is 2 to 3 months for license receipt.  3 1/2 months passed and nothing, so I sent yet another email asking when it will be received because I needed it for insurance purposes, she responded with we are in receipt of the marriage licenses and you will be receiving them by the middle of next week.  Well, a week and a half has now passed since that email and I have not received my marriage license yet.  Has anyone else had this same experience?  I'm not sure what to do from here.  Do I just continue to wait?  Is there someone else I need to call?  I think this is getting a little ridiculous.  I mean here I am excited about getting married and I can't even change my name legally yet!  Please help!sad.gif

How frustrating. I hope i dont have the same problem, once you are married you want to change your name on everything straight away dont you. I think you should just keep on at them, i think part of the trouble is they are so much more laid back about everything than we are.

 

I have the same trouble with my WC at the moment and we havent even been out there to get married yet. Im now just leaving it and saving all my questions for when we get out there.

 

Im sure somebody who is married will be along shortly to advise you of their experience. Hope you get it sorted soon x

Not that this will make you feel better, but my Resort in Negril, Jamaica told us it would be anywhere from 6-12 months. FRUSTRATING! But what can you do. I have heard that it does come, on Island time!!

I suggest contacting resort management if you do not receive it within the next week or so.  If she said it should be there then you are justified in being worried.  I understand it may take longer sometimes but she said one thing and unless she gives you a reason as to why its different this time, I would move up the chain to see if it can be resolved that way.  Good luck!

I got married in Jamaica in July. I had my marriage license back in 3 weeks. I have heard others say theirs took awhile. I may have just got lucky. I would be worried about it too! Have you tried calling them?

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
