Destination Wedding - In Jamaica

A wedding in Jamaica is a great choice. Why? Because all year we have great weather, there are tons of wedding and honeymoon package deals and is fun for everyone.

You can save a lot of money by having your wedding and your honeymoon at the same place.

If you have any form of complicated family situation then a destination wedding is all the more reason to have your "I Do" said in a neutral location.

Also Jamaica Resorts offer on-site wedding planners that makes planning your wedding so much easier.

But, before you start planning your wedding details you need to ask yourself some questions:

  • Would you like your wedding to be an event that people will remember forever, or be an adventure?

  • Would you like your wedding to be a small intimate affair with just a select group of people you are closest to.

  • Do you want your wedding to be a group vacation where everyone can really get to know each other and you can spend quality time with everyone. Especially if your family and the groom's family doesn't really know each other and also live a million miles apart.

  • Guest list is made up of people who will come no matter where you have your wedding.

  • If things go wrong and you think this will make a great story someday.

  • For my honeymoon I can hang out with my friends and family and still be able to sneak off at the end of the day and just be a couple.

If you say yes to most of those questions start packing you are the perfect couple for a destination wedding.

Next do a worksheet listing expenses from airfare, accommodations, invitations, photographer, flowers, bridal gown, gifts, decor.

The resorts in Jamaica offers on-site wedding planner which makes your life so much easier.

So review my Jamaica website and see all that this jewel of the Caribbean has to offer and compare.
