What's the Perfect Wedding Destination?

Vegas baby! That’s what I think of right away when I hear someone talking about sneaking off to get hitched. But when I asked a group of travel agents where they thought the best place to elope would be, they said Jamaica all inclusive vacations, mon! The best place to start is with an all-inclusive vacation package. This takes the hassle out of finding the right hotel, cheap flights, transportation, meals, and so on and so on. As an added bonus, some all-inclusive resorts offer a free ceremony when you spend your honeymoon at their resort.

Why Get Married in Jamaica?

Aside from the obvious—romantic sunsets on the beach, warm sun and surf, and the oh-so-mellow vibe—getting married in Jamaica is super easy!

Unlike many other tropical countries, you don’t have to take a blood test before tying the knot in Jamaica. All you need are notarized copies of:

  • Proof of citizenship: your passport or birth certificate should do it.
  • Parent’s written consent (if you’re under 18)
  • Original certificate of divorce (if applicable)
  • Certified copy of death certificate (if applicable)

And of course you’ll need the marriage license, which costs about 50 bucks. You should apply for that before your trip to simplify things when you get there. Once you’ve applied for the marriage license with the Ministry of Justice, Jamaica, you can say your “I dos” with a licensed marriage official within as little as 24 hours after you arrive. Yep, sounds pretty simple!

Planning your Destination Wedding in Jamaica

The best place to start is with an all-inclusive vacation package. This takes the hassle out of finding the right hotel, cheap flights, transportation, meals, and so on and so on. As an added bonus, some all-inclusive resorts offer a free ceremony when you spend your honeymoon at their resort.

Now, just because your snuck away to do the do, doesn’t mean you should skimp on the details. You still want to capture every breathtaking moment, so you’ll need to hire a photographer. And maybe a florist. And you’ll need something nice to wear. Starting to sound like a lot of work? No worries! Just hire a wedding coordinator to take care of all the details on your behalf. When you choose a resort destination, it’s easy to find a qualified wedding coordinator—one who’s used to working with international brides and grooms.

Now here’s the best part: if you do a little extra research (better yet, have your travel agent do it for you) you can also find resorts willing to offer happy couples free massages, a moonlight cruise, chilled champagne, romantic dinners and more.

If you’re planning a private wedding, Jamaica is the ultimate destination. Book an all-inclusive vacation package and hire your local wedding coordinator. It’s your big day, after all, so focus on enjoying it!
