My fiance and I are getting married in St. Lucia at the end of September.
While this is a dream come true, I’ll admit that I’m a little bit of a novice when it comes to planning something so intimate, via…er email. My wedding planner is over there, while we are here, so most of our correspondense is online. My question is: should she be asking us for documentation such as passports, etc over email this early in the planning phase? My impression was that they wouldn’t need that information until after we arrive there, however I could be incorrect about that.
Does anybody have any experience with this? Any advice would greatly help.

I would not share my passport information with someone I met online. I don’t see why she would need that information and it makes me wonder about identity theft.

Well I have traveled extensively and I don’t see any reason at all that your wedding planner would need copies of your passports. Maybe they are just making sure that you are serious about traveling there and they are not waisting their time. Even if you give them copies of your PP there is no private info on it so they can’t do anything weird like if it was you CC # or something.

We have spoken on the phone several times and she owns and runs the villa that we are renting over there, so she is a credible person. I’m just nervous about sharing anything like that online.

if you are ok giving giving her the info, but not through email, can you call or fax her? i never had to send my passport info, but i did scan my drivers license and birth certificate . license was to serve as ID for my credit card, and birth certificate was needed to prepare our marriage documents.
