How to organise weddings in Jamaica

Would you like to get married in tropical Jamaica? With these pointers, you will know just where to go for the perfect wedding celebration.

Hire a planner

You probably do not have the time to fly to Jamaica to prepare for the wedding. That is why you will find many wedding planners on the island who take care of everything for you. This means that you don't need to worry about the documentation and they will make sure the day goes perfectly. Check out as an example. If you are going on a cruise, inquire about wedding cruise packages. There are also lots of beach wedding packages and other Caribbean wedding packages available.

The basic wedding facts

In Jamaica, you have to be 18 years or older to get married. There is no blood test required, and the waiting period is 24 hours. You need to prove your citizenship and bring a copy of your birth certificate. If you have been married before, bring proof of the granted divorce and if you are a widow(er) you need to bring a copy of the death certificate of your deceased partner.

Where to stay

One of the great things about tropical weddings is that you have so many places to stay that are fantastic. It is not only the place where you get married, it is also the destination of a romantic honeymoon. Check out for some of the romantic escapes for island weddings, the Jamaican resorts offers. also offers a range of beautiful hotels and villas to stay at.


A Jamaica wedding and honeymoon does not have to be as expensive as you think. The wedding packages start under a 1000 US dollars and it is up to you how expensive you want to make the day. If you had your wedding closer to home, you would probably spend a lot more because of the amount of guests and the venues, than on the whole package in Jamaica. The only way it does start to get very expensive is if you fly a lot of guests over to witness the day with you, but this is all up to you. If you just stick to the two of you, you can have a relatively cheap wedding, in one of the world's most beautiful locations that you will never forget.
