Legal Requirements For Jamaican Wedding

Recommended Posts

Hope someone can help me out.  Everything I am reading tells me that I need to have a "notarized copy of final divorce decree".  I have a certified copy of my final divorce decree.  Do I need to take that to get notarized...or is the certified copy what they need?  I'm so confused..lol,

Congratulations Snorfle1! I am getting married in Jamaica as well. We had to have the signature page of the certified copy of our final divorce decree notarized.

Congrats and happy planning! Yes - you will need to get the final decree notarized and be prepared to leave that in Jamaica. That's what will go to the Registrar so you won't get it back. I'm not sure why but we didn't have to provide it all in advance. I pdf'd everything down first, then brought all the originals when we arrived, including the final divorce papers. But I've read other posts where the ladies had to provide eveything in advance. Check with whichever resort you've chosen to find out how they do things. There don't seem to be too many consistencies in Jamaica! lol ya mon!!

I was married in Jamaica in June - while I didn't have to provide a divorce degree, we simply scanned notarized COPIES of our birth certificates and passports and emailed them to the wedding coordinators. The notary included a letter stating that he saw the original copies and basically we are who we say we are. We never had to provide originals and had no issue getting our license.

I am getting married in Jamaica on 10/29/16. We had to have notarized copies of the divorce decree. We sent originals via mail to the wedding coordinator at Sandals. We're set to go!!  :wub:

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
