What more could you want than warm weather, soft sandy beaches and beautiful sights when it comes to your wedding? You get everything and more with the island of Jamaica.
This is one of the more popular Caribbean Sea islands when it comes to holidays and destination weddings. It is also the fifth largest island within the Caribbean, and full of white sandy beaches and warm waters.
Why Opt for Jamaica as Your Wedding Destination
The Island is perfect for those who want to wow their guests, while getting the wedding of their dreams. Negril is one of the locations to choose on the island due to its 7-mile, infamous beach. If you fancy saying your vows up high, Dunn’s River Falls is somewhere to visit. This is also an excellent spot for your honeymoon after your wedding day.
While Negril has the perfect beach location for your wedding day, another option would be Montego Bay. This is located in the northwest of the island, and is surrounded in beautiful crystal blue waters. Ocho Rios in the northeast of the island is another option, and great for those who love to shop!
There are a number of colonial estates surrounding the island. Rafting or sailing down the country’s Black River is the best way to get there, and will be perfect for romantic and intimate shots. Finally, when it comes to the night, the beach bars will add to the overall experience. Do not leave without trying one of the country’s popular rum cocktails.
Getting married in Jamaica is also an affordable option. Many of the hotels in the area offer their own packages that will include your full holiday. You get to save money, while getting breathtaking shots from different points on the island. There is also the option to go straight into your honeymoon on the island.
What Makes Jamaica Famous?
When you think of Jamaica, it’s easy to forget that it is the nation of an infamous bobsleigh team. You have likely watched the film Cool Runnings, which was based on a true story. Four runners joined forces to become the island’s first bobsleigh team, and made history despite not winning.
It is also known for Bob Marley, a reggae musician, as well as Heavy D and The Notorious B.I.G. While the latter two do not come directly from the island country, they have Jamaican blood running through their veins. You could create your wedding day around the popular music of the island, and include some of these big names. Rap and punk music were developed based on the ska and reggae sounds from the country.
For literary fans, Ian Fleming will be a name that many remember. He is the author of the James Bond novels and lived in Jamaica. This is why many of his novels have elements set on the island, including Doctor No and Live and Let Die.
