    HELP! I just checked the 10 day forecast out of curiosity for Ocho Rios (we leave next week) and it shows rain every, single day leading up to the day we get there. My hope is that it will move out but I just found out May is a rainy month I could CRY!

    For anyone that's been - do you know what back up plans are for weddings if it rains? Has anyone been there while it was raining? Does it rain all day long? I am so upset! I knew that there was a chance it could rain, but looking at the forecast has me so depressed right now! Every day? What if we're stuck in our hotel rooms the whole time? We paid all that money to be stuck in the hotel. I'm so bummed (((

      I don't think it rains all day long in the carribean....I think it just goes in spurts lasting a couple minutes to an hour. I think they will do your wedding indoors at ROR, but you could always email Chandlyn and ask her what the plan is. Good luck!

        Hi Elisa1126, we have been to the carribean a few times now and it has always given out rain, but when we got ther it was brilliant sunshine, but when it did rain it was only for about 5 mins and it was over, people didn't even get out of the pool. I have also read a few reviews where the bride have said it has rain and they have moved evrything inside and they said it didn't ruin the day. Good luck x

          I agree with both above-- almost every time I've been to Jamaica, rain has been in the forecast, and it's usually a short shower, then right back to bright sunshine.

            I wouldn't worry. Like everyone else had said, you are in the carribean and it will rain. My wedding is the day after yours and everything planned is outside. But if it rains, it rains...nothing much you can do about it. Just be sure to enjoy every moment!

              It showed it was to rain all week when we were there too and it only rained one day... I would not worry too much!

                If it rains, sometimes they will wait to see if it passes. This happened to the wedding before ours ..and it did!!
                If they decide to move your wedding, it will be in the Mammee Bay restaurant.
                Here's hoping it behaves for you!!!
                We had a lot of rain in our second week in Jamaica.

                  Don't worry too much about it. If you do have to move it inside I have heard they docorate it beautifully for you.

                    Thank you ladies soooooo much!!! I could have cried last night when I saw the forecast. Okay - I'm going to stop worrying about it. My fiance' is already in Jamaica mode - he's like "no worries mon" LOL!!! But I can't help it! I agree with you all that it should just be a quick rain here and there. And it's not like it's going to be cold and miserable. And DRBrainfreeze that is so cool that you will be there the same time as me! Maybe we'll run into each other!
