Most people’s fantasy of an ultra romantic destination setting looks a lot like Jamaica.
Most couples are drawn to the fantastic all inclusive resorts with upgraded amenities such as swim-out suites, outdoor showers, private pools or hot tubs and butler service, while others are drawn to more intimate properties as well as free-standing villas with butler, chef and chauffer services. Again Jamaica offers so many different options it’s easy to see why so many choose Jamaica for that special life experience such as a honeymoon, destination wedding or just a special getaway with their beloved.
Here, couples can exchange their vows on a palm-fringed beach as the sun slips into the sea in a blaze of color, or say “I do” in a luxuriant tropical garden under a bower of flowers. And usually, they do this right at their own resort, with no worries because an on-site wedding planner is managing every detail.
Exotic settings: Jamaica’s wedding planners are also adept at arranging weddings at exotic settings around the island such as romantic jungle waterfalls, secluded cliffside villas, elegant plantation great houses and intimate churches. Couples have been known to exchange their vows underwater or beside a waterfall.
Adventurous clients can wed while gliding down the river past plantations and remote villages on a bamboo raft or make a grand entrance to their wedding by helicopter or on horseback. This can be pre-arranged easily.
Free weddings and more: Jamaican all inclusive hotels pioneered and perfected the free wedding, which generally includes the services of a wedding planner, an officiant, flowers, champagne, wedding cake, and more. Nevertheless, the trend has been toward more elaborate celebrations with larger guest lists.
Making it legal: The legal requirements are simple and couples (with proper ID, divorce papers, etc) can wed after 24 hours on island by filing paperwork in advance. Allow four to eight months after the wedding for couples to receive a certified copy of the marriage certificate, or with a $50 express fee, in four to eight weeks.
