Wedding Locations and Venues in Jamaica

Searching locations and venues for your Jamaica wedding is sure to produce the perfect place to say "I do"

Montego Bay, Kingston, Negril, Ocho Rios, and Port Antonio are Jamaica's bustling cities, and home to the largest concentration of wedding venues.  Still, couples who prefer to get off the radar can find reception halls and outdoor locales in smaller and quieter Jamaican towns. 

Among the most challenging aspects of organizing a Jamaican wedding is choosing a wedding venue without the chance to  visit the site before you reserve it.  Recruiting a wedding or event planner is an excellent choice for couples who are searching for someone to take care of everything in Jamaica associated with your wedding prior to the big celebration. These experts work to make sure that your nuptials operate as smoothly and ideally as possible. If you decide to do all the planning yourself, selecting the kind of wedding you would like to have will trim down your possible choices a great deal, rendering the entire process a little less complex.

Types of Ceremonies

When it comes to your ceremony, your Jamaica wedding is only limited by your imagination. While the most common type of wedding planned by foreigners is a beach ceremony, this is not the only option available.

Casual vs. Formal

Whether you're seeking a formal or informal wedding, Jamaica provides choices to suit any couple's wedding needs. Though Caribbean weddings are normally thought of as informal celebrations, you can dress your wedding up with formal wear and elegant adornments. Similarly, you may dress down a commonly formal event such as a church wedding by seeking very simple adornments and permitting your guests to dress in a casual fashion.

Traditional Wedding

The more traditional wedding ceremony customarily takes place in a religious venue, with relatives and companions filling the pews as the bride slowly walks down the aisle toward her handsome groom. As soon as the vows are said, the wedding party and their guests typically continue on to a dining hall to celebrate the memorable event. This is as much a possibility in Jamaica as anywhere else. Your wedding planner can help you locate a chapel or temple that is appropriate for your religious faith; for example, the Lady of Fatima Church  in Ocho Rios is the most popular choice for Catholic weddings.

Outdoor Wedding

Between the gently lapping waves and soft, sandy shores, it isn't surprising to find that the most popular outdoor weddings are those hosted on the seashore. It goes without saying that a wedding on a Jamaican beach is a beautiful affair. The sea and fine sand deliver such an ideal backdrop that few decorations are needed. Weddings on the beach are also rather simple to organize, and smaller weddings may not even require permits in Jamaica.  Gardens and waterfalls also serve as exquisite outdoor locations.

Marriage at Sea

If you dream of getting married at sea, doing so in Jamaica is one of the most beautiful places on the planet to so.  The Caribbean Sea offers some of the most crystal clear, calm waters, and stunning views.  You might choose to plan to get married aboard a major cruise line that makes a stop in Jamaica, or charter a yacht for a few hours.  You may even rent the boat for an entire day and host the reception on board as well.

A trendy possibility for couples planning a Jamaican wedding is obtaining a wedding and honeymoon package at a large resort. Jamaica in particular is well known for having a wide range of all-inclusive resorts, and these locations almost all offer wedding packages.
