    Brides going to be in Ocho Rios Jamaica in the next couple weeks - are you concerned? Weather.com forecast rain every day in Ocho Rios. April is not suppose to be a rainy month, I am really bummed if it really is going to rain every day What are your back up plans going to be? I really wanted everyone to have a good time!

      I wouldn't worry about it. Usually when it rains, it rains in the mid afternoon and dries just as suddenly as it comes. I think Mother Nature does this to balance the heat. I'm sure you'll have great weather for your wedding. Jamie

        we just got back... when it rained it was for 10-15 mins, and in the early am. It rained one day for most of the day - and the weddings that day were in the Plantation & the Mammee Bay restaurant. Both are on the beach with open windows/walls - so it's a nice back-up! :)

            The forecast will often say that for Ocho Rios and all the locals say you can't trust the forecast! They will forecast rain even if it will shower for 10 minutes the whole day. It was like that before we left too and we had beautiful sunny days, with the odd quick shower. One day there was a downpour but it was over in an hour and was in the morning!

              That's soothing to know, I am hoping it will continue having short period of rain only next week. I am just looking at the 10 day forecast and the hour by hour forecast on weather.com and it shows raining every hour, that made me very nervous.

                it said the same thing for us last July and honestly it just rained a few of the afternoons for a while, only one day did it really downpour. The majority of the time it was beautiful.

                  I agree with everyone above, the rain comes and goes quickly.

                  By the way, the flowers in your siggy look gorgeous. I got my flowers last year and I still look at them everyday and smile. :)
