Jamaica Destination Weddings

Say ‘I do’ to a destination wedding on the sparkling shores of Jamaica

A tropical oasis known as the Home of All Right, this laidback island is perfect for destination weddings and is home to a friendly culture, positive vibes and breathtaking landscapes; from the pristine beaches of Negril to the lush hills of Montego Bay. Choose from a wide range of resorts across the island for your all inclusive destination wedding with options for all tastes and budgets, from adults only properties to family-friendly accommodations.

Exchange your vows on your chosen resort’s beautiful beachfront with a beach wedding or walk down the aisle at on one of the island’s off-site venues, including the charming Rose Hall and the magical Aqueduct Ruins overlooking the coast.

There are plenty of excursions for wedding couples and their guests to enjoy. Take a catamaran cruise to Negril’s famous Rick’s Café to watch a cliff diving show or catch the legendary sunset while sipping on a Bob Marley beverage; swim in Montego Bay’s Luminous Lagoon; zoom down the bobsled ride at Mystic Mountain and so much more. Whether you’re hosting a grand affair or an intimate ceremony, Jamaica is a beautiful choice for your destination wedding.
