Jamaica is the birthplace of Reggae music, providing laid back island vibes that embody the spirit of “All Right”. You can fuse the local culture into your wedding by adding components like the traditional jerk cuisine, native flowers, or even steel drums. The major tourist regions of Jamaica are all located along the northern coastline and range in landscapes from the famous Seven Mile Beach in Negril, with its pristine white sand, to the waterfalls in Ocho Rios, surrounded by lush jungles. There are many all-inclusive options available, making this destination a great value for your destination wedding. Due to its location in the Caribbean, Jamaica is more easily accessible from the East Coast. Those traveling from the West Coast will experience longer travel times and higher flight prices. It is important to note that same-sex weddings are not permitted in Jamaica.
There is nothing better than having a beautiful beach as a backdrop when you walk down the aisle, but with a destination wedding, your guests are having an experience that they will never forget! As for the couple’s wedding dream, not as much décor is required, you already have your honeymoon AND the guest list is often smaller, which means savings!
In Jamaica, the traditional wedding cake is one made of dark fruits and rum. It’s also served around Christmas time and many Caribbean islands have their own versions of the famed dessert.
