Jamaica Wedding Packages

Weddings in Jamaica


Jamaica is home to a dramatic beautiful landscape of rolling mountains caressed by endless white sandy beaches, covered by tropical foliage and crisscrossed by streaming rivers and cascading waterfalls - the picturesque Caribbean wedding destination. Jamaican weddings are designed with couples in mind – many resorts are not only exclusively for adults, but also offer complimentary weddings as part of all-inclusive packages with cocktail parties and dinner reception. Jamaica is also home to unique and renowned wedding venues, including over water bungalow chapels. Wherever on the island you go, you’ll be warmly welcomed and never be too far from a cool glass of rum punch and delicious authentic food packed with flavour. Weddings in Jamaica distil all that famous Caribbean party spirit into your big day, with a huge range of fun things to see and do. Jamaica will capture your heart.

What to expect from your Jamaica wedding package

Our properties in Jamaica offer a range of packages to cater to size, budget, and taste. Most resorts will offer a complementary package, when booking a certain room category and when staying for specified number of nights. These package inclusions vary per resort, but often cover the basics of a ceremony, the bouquet and boutonniere for the wedding couple, a wedding cake and champagne toast for a handful of friends and family, special touches such as a spa discount or romantic dinner for the 2 of you. For those wanting to go all out, packages are available that include a cocktail party and sit-down dinner reception, plus a video of your ceremony and your hair and make-up artist. There really is something for everyone, and an array of venues you can make your own. For our Jamaica properties, you’ll be holding your wedding events in the resort, and will have an experienced wedding coordinator helping you every step of the way.

Legalities, Requirements, & Same-Sex Weddings

For a symbolic wedding in Jamaica, you need to arrive 2 business days before your ceremony, 3 days for a legal ceremony, and your arrival day counts as day 0.

Your legal fees, such as the notary and translation costs are not included in your wedding package, however some resorts will include the services of a judge or minister in their more comprehensive packages. Legal fees in Jamaica are very reasonable. Your dedicated in-resort wedding coordinator will help you with the legal arrangements. After your ceremony, you will be sent your notarised and translated marriage license to your home address. This can take 8 – 12 weeks to come through.

In Jamaica, same-sex marriages are not allowed. This means resorts are not able to hold symbolic, nor legal ceremonies. If you're looking for a legal same-sex wedding in the Caribbean, Mexico would be the best choice, followed by Costa Rica. Symbolic ceremonies are also available in the Dominican Republic in selected resorts.

Group Bookings

Many resorts will offer you and your party a form of group benefits. This can range from free rooms and room upgrades, extra events for your wedding, or even credit towards your wedding. A selection of resorts will do this for you, without any need for a group booking deposit, or everybody needing to book at the same time. It’s easy and convenient for you and your friends and family. If you’re looking to launch your own wedding website, we can offer you a selection of prices and special offer details to share. To receive these benefits, you’ll often need to avoid certain dates as usually Easter and Christmas week would be excluded, and you and your guests need to be booked through the same company. Speak to a member of our team about your party size and needs and they can advise what’s best for your wedding.

Jamaica Weddings FAQs

Yes, the resorts will happily cater to your religion, and have a rabi perform your ceremony rather than a minister for example. For those looking for a Catholic wedding, you’ll need to be married in a consecrated venue. A selection of resorts have these on property, such as the stunning over water chapel at Sandals White House. If you’d prefer a different resort or venue, your ceremony can be held by a Catholic priest, this would be a blessing rather than a wedding, as the venue is not consecrated.

For most resorts, they can, though each resort will have different rules. They’ll often charge a wedding pass and apply a maximum external guest rule. For example, perhaps only 20% of your guest list can stay elsewhere and come in on the day. A way around this, is for your guests to come to your resort for several nights over your wedding dates, and then move on to a resort of their choice.
