    Translated Marriage Certificate

    Lori,

    We are leaving for Aruba on June 26th and will be returning on July 1st. I will be at the civil house on June 27th and can speak to Mr. Christian's on your behalf and make sure that I have your translated marriage certificate to bring back with me on the plane on July 1st. My thoughts are is that you slipped through the cracks and please do not blame this on the strike. As mentioned earlier, we were in Aruba recently for two weeks and the strike was over for quite a while before our arrival on May 16th. Please send me a PM with your telephone number so I can call and get your home address.

    Karen, that is soooo nice of you to offer! This little issue with the marriage certificate has been the only "hitch" (pardon the pun) in our wedding on the island. We had a wonderful time, a beautiful ceremony, and some amazing wedding photos courtesy of Bryan Morris Photography. It's just frustrating that things are moving so slowly, if at all. I will send you a PM with my contact info.
    Thanks!

    Translated Marriage Certificate

    I spoke with Lori earlier today and promised I will get her translated marriage certificate to her. Maybe even before we return It is very annoying when I hear of situations like Lori's when I know how the system works in Aruba. A translated certificate should never take well over 3 months for the bride and groom to receive. I know for a fact that the Civil Registrar handles many civil ceremonies on any given day or week and then the marriage certificate is written in Dutch and sent to the translator to be translated into English. However, the translator too gets backed up because he not only translates marriage certificates, but other documents as well. When a bride and groom use a wedding planner's services, it is up to the wedding planner to make sure the bride and grooms translated certificate is gotten to them while the couple is still in Aruba or make sure that their translated marriage certificate is sent by FedEx to the couples home within a reasonable amount of time. When a couple handle's the civil ceremony arrangements by themselves, many, many times they run into problems and frustration's. Any way, it was my pleasure to assist Lori and her new husband

    I have a question...For those of you who received your translated documents while in Aruba, which wedding coordinator did you use?

    Generally, it would be delivered within a couple of days. Keep in mind that stuff happens. All you need is a guarantee from your WC that you would get it before you leave and if they don't show up with it make sure they promise to send it by FEDEX as the regular mail is not the thing to do.

    Don't panic, these cases here are isolated cases and most of them have been resolved.

    Don't let your documents be too much of a deciding factor in choosing your WC.

    Thanks! I was just wondering if one coordinator was better than another at getting the documents ready.
