It’s time to breathe a sigh of relief. All the details of your upcoming fairy-tale nuptials in the heartbeat of the world have been laid out perfectly. Now it’s time to share a delicious meal before the wedding day with your loved ones who have gathered.
This is the start of your journey together. Laugh and break bread as the candlelight gently flickers and the stars twinkle high above. Whether you’re clinking glasses in sublime luxury or raising a Red Stripe toast against the backdrop of a brilliantly flaming sunset, your rehearsal dinner in Jamaica will be nothing less than extraordinary.
Dine Amidst Sprawling Botanicals
Out of an unsavory past, beauty has risen in the form of sprawling great houses on former plantation grounds all across our beautiful island nation. Many of these historic homes are well-maintained and boast spectacularly manicured lawns and gardens exploding with colorful flora all in a row. Some of these former plantations have opened their doors to visitors who wish to explore the land, learn the history, and dine in breathtaking beauty. Epicurean restaurants on the grounds of the iconic Devon House bring Old World charm to the bustling city of Kingston, while the Rose Hall Great House welcomes you and your guests in Montego Bay.
Your rehearsal dinner options include feasting by waterfalls at several restaurants with such a unique feature along the North Coast of our incredible island. Or, you may opt to visit one of several farm-to-table experiences that dot the lush rolling hills in the interior of our dynamic landscape.
Perhaps you’ll choose to dine off the beaten path on a secluded beach or high up in the mountains. Have your dinner catered by the culinary geniuses at Caribbean Pantry Catering or Decadent Catering and Events. Pair these caterers with decor companies like New Levels Decor or Petals and Promises, and wherever you choose to dine will be transformed into an evening of the utmost ceremonial spread.
Rehearsal Dinner Experiences
Perhaps you and your party would like to experience more of Jamaica while anticipating your ceremony? Your rehearsal dinner is an opportunity to do things a little differently and make the entire wedding event one for the books.
Reserve a day at the revered Martha Brae River, complete with enough rafts for everyone in your party and enjoy a fresh, delicious meal prepared riverside for you. Your party will be taken downstream as you languish in unmatched beauty and peaceful serenity before stopping at your riverside dinner spot for some flavorful Jamaican eats.
The fishing villages along our South Coast will also host you in fine Jamaican style. Chomp on fresh fish, lobster, crab, shrimp, and all the seafood and Jamaican sides you can manage while your toes wiggle in the warm sand. Enjoy local music off in the distance as the children dance and swim below the seagulls flying high above.
Or perhaps take a hike or a bicycle ride into the majestic Blue Mountains to sip our famous homegrown coffee. It’s so soothing to munch on the fresh coffee berries while you breathe the cleanest air. High in the mountains, you will find many restaurants that will cater to your culinary wishes, serving up the most delightful Jamaican meals.
Traditional or unconventional, rest assured that your rehearsal dinner in Jamaica will leave the right taste in your mouth.
