List of items you can send

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

It seems like at some point or another we all have questions about what to send. So, I decided to start a thread that can help us all. If you have something I didn't list, feel free to add. I've already sent my life to my fiance so it's too late for me to add, but others may be able to use this info.

This is what I sent besides the requested documents:

1. 500 Emails

2. phone cards

3. Wedding coordinator letter

4. Reception Hall rental contract

5. Photography contract

6. Wedding Invitation

7. Notarized letter from parents, siblings, and friends who have spoken to him and involved in the wedding

8. Copy of my passport with stamps

9. pictures

10. my letter of intent (notarized)

11. wedding receipts

12. boarding pass and itinerary

13. moneygrams from me to him (still deciding if I want him to use them)

14. copy of birth certificate

I agree. Add the IM chats. And ESPECIALLY the phone card details if you have a phone card that has those. I have heard that sometimes the CO thinks that just a phone card receipt is not enough. They want to see a log of the phone numbers used so that there is proof you actually called your SO.
