I just received this email from a close friend:
I have a question. Our eldest, Amanda, leaves next Sunday for the Dominican Republic. Friends of hers are getting married, and she was told that, because of the fact the maid of honour has same last name, she cannot sign as witness, so Amanda has to. AND, to do so, she must provide 2 copies of her passport and 2 copies of her drivers license to the company making the arrangements. Can you provide any insight for me?
I can see them wanting to see her passport and possibly taking a copy, but two copies? And the drivers licence as well.
I’m also pretty sure that any hotel employee or local could also sign as a witness. A hotel employee signed instead of me a few years ago.
