Hi, Thank you and yes its from your local registry office and as you know can only be done no more than 3 months before hand ( Thomson told us no more than 3 months from your return flight back home ) and costs £33.50 each.
So it seems all the paperwork is done in the last 3 of months before you marry as you have to wait 21 days for your cert of no impediment to come thro, then get it legalised , then send them to Thomson, who then send them to Aruba.
It obviously cuts it short if there is a problem
Hope this helps and dont intend to stress you with it
By the way I'm origianally from Leeds but have lived in Manchester for the past 7 years and your local register office is based on the area you pay your council tax to...so for both of us it was Manchester. Hope this helps x
You should contact your wedding planner at the Tamarijn hotel. The vast majority of their guests and wedding couples are British and Europeans, so that specific question is a daily question they receive. I'm 100% that they will give you all necesary details. I do not know Arleth, but if others advice you to contact her, please do. I think most of the experienced wedding planners on the Island should really know that answer.
You are incorrect in your statement that most guests staying, at
Tamarjin and Divi Beach Resorts (Sister Resort of Tamarjin) are British and European. We recently stayed at the Divi, had meals at both the Tam and Divi, saw the shows at both resorts and although many of the guests were European, there were lots of Americans staying at both of these resorts. Many of the American's were repeat guests too! The Divi was the first resort we have ever stayed at 35 years ago and since our timeshare is close by, we stop by both the Tamarjin and Divi often during our visits to Aruba and many guests are American besides being British and European citizens. True the couples using the in house wedding planners of both Divi and Tamarjrin can address guestions to the resorts wedding planners. However, they may not receive a quick response to their questions in a timely manner, but the contributers of the weddings and honeymoons forum can answer the questions as well based on their experiences.
