Your Jamaican Wedding Ceremony
You’ve planned this day for so long and trekked all the way to the island where dreams come true. Now, it’s time to say “I do”. We’ll make sure your Jamaican wedding ceremony is perfect when you exchange those magical words with the one you love.
It’s easy to get married in Jamaica. There are just a few requirements, then add in all the island glitz, glamor, and charm to execute the wedding ceremony of your dreams.
We’ve listed all the important details for your wedding ceremony including legal requirements but importantly, you’ll need to be in Jamaica for at least 24 hours prior to the big day, once you’ve secured a marriage license.
Professional wedding planners at hotels and bridal companies will help you with all the paperwork to make sure everything goes smoothly and legally. They can help you find the perfect officiant for your ceremony too. Whether that’s a marriage officer for religious ceremonies or civil officiants for secular ceremonies, make sure to book well in advance, just like you would your venue and all your other wedding vendors.
Wedding ceremonies in Jamaica must take place between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. We recommend a late afternoon wedding for perfect crimson skies at sunset or an early morning wedding for bright, brisk, clear weather.
Sure, you can have your ceremony at the same place as your reception. But how illustrious would it be to have your wedding day span a few of our distinguished landmarks? Perhaps you could get married inland next to a waterfall or a babbling brook with your reception further down on the beach. Or perhaps you could say your “I do’s” in a celebrated, larger-than-life cathedral before whisking your guests off to your resort for a picture-perfect reception.
You can have it all in Jamaica. An intimate affair with just you and your boo atop a mountain, on a luxury catamaran cruise, or inside an enchanted and mysterious cave. Take your family to the rum distilleries on the island for a whale of a time. Or get cultural and celebrate your nuptials on the gritty streets of Kingston against kaleidoscopic wall art by the Downtown waterfront.
Stop by the local craft markets or the more upscale artisan shops for finely handcrafted pieces to add to your Jamaican ceremonial experience. Or visit the Maroons or Rastafarian villages for a completely unique and remarkable ceremony.
Whatever and wherever you choose to have your wedding ceremony, finish it off with decor selections from Bridal Dreams Jamaica. They’ll take care of you no matter how conventional or out there you choose to go.
Turn your ceremony into digital art through the creative eyes of the expert team at Digital Video Concept. With capabilities of drone captures up high and intimate shots up close, every moment will be preserved against the backdrop of your dreamy island destination.
Custom edible parting gifts for your guests complete the day. Pair delicate rum samples with the sweet treats of the master bakers at Sweet Mischief. Or have Runpal Couriers fetch you some curated trinkets to commemorate your glorious day.
