Getting married in Jamaica is simple – visitors can be married 24 hours after arriving provided all prior paperwork and applications have been approved.
Jamaica does not require any blood test, but the following documentation are required:
All documents that are not issued in English must be translated by an Official Translator and subsequently certified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country of residence and by the nearest Jamaican Mission or Honorary Consulate.
The processing fee for the Marriage License is Four Thousand Jamaican Dollars (approximately US$50.00). The marriage license is valid for 3 months and the application is a same day process.
We choose to work with resorts and venues who we are confident can host your wedding, after all, it is one of the most special days of your life!
The resorts and venues we work with offer great wedding packages, add on options and have create incredible events to make your wedding day the best day ever!
One important thing to know is the resorts and venues we choose to work with not only offer amazing wedding packages, décor, florals, food, entertainment, etc… but they also are prepared for back up options – while no one wants rain on their wedding day, some elements are simply out of our hands, but rest assured the venues we recommend offer beautiful back up locations just in case!
The island offers resorts to suit all needs – adults only, couples only, family friendly and anything in between. Most often wedding couples choose to stay at All Inclusive resorts, to make the vacation seamless and easy for their loved ones. These resorts are plentiful in Jamaica with a variety of price points and amenities.
We highly recommend and advise wedding couples to choose a resort that can accommodate their needs and wishes for their wedding events as not all resorts can, but don’t worry – we are here to guide you through that and help make selecting the right resort easy!
