Recommended Posts

thanks! Ok good, I was wondering if they need like a year notice or something like with most other wedding related things hahah.

To be honest I have no freaking idea. I just assumed they did this in their spare time. I will email one tomorrow just incase!!!

Me too! Good question!! I plan on just having the person do it at our house night before we leave. If we need witnesses my MoH lives 2 blocks away and her/her hubby can sign and be done with it. No ceremony or anything... Not telling anyone either. So cheap is all I need!

Exactly! For us it will be just our immediate families (well, half of his because his mom and sister are in Colombia) and we will probably have it at my house. I want to get married on Aug 4 because 4 is my lucky number haha (so stupid I know)

I never really thought about this. On TV they always say they are getting married at city hall. So I just thought I would go down to city hall. But now that I think about it...where exactly in city hall would I go??? Guess I better start looking into this as I wanted to do it in December.

In Alberta you can't do that you have to hire a justice of the peace. The whole city hall thing isn't legal here and only happens in the movies sadly!

Thank goodness I read this thread. I honestly hadn't put that much thought into the legal wedding. I'm learning now I am going to have to do a bit of planning now. I also hadn't really thought about the cost. It looks like it cost on average $200 to hire someone to do,the wedding ceremony.

List of commissionaires in Alberta.

I emailed the two nearest my house and will let you know once I hear back from them.

 

Side links have everything you need to know to get married in Alberta. Pretty informative.

I LOVE the one that we chose, she has been amazing and takes care of everything for us. it's 260.00 but that's for ALL the fees and she takes care of getting everything in order, filing it and doing all of that so we don't have anything to worry about (which is awesome because we have enough on our plate as it is!)

Hmmm sounds good @@Mrsktobe. I didn't expect to have to pay that much to be honest for NO ceremony and just 5 minutes to sign the paperwork and send it in. But if that's standard I guess we will bite the bullet.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
