Hi, congrats, welcome, and all that good stuff! I agree that you may want to consider weather in Jamaica and Mexico as a big part of your decision. Weather in Jamaica in November | jamaica-guide.info is a website for Jamaican weather in November. For Mexico, you'd be better off looking it up by the region. Mexico is a lot bigger than Jamaica, so its weather varies more by region.


I am getting married in Negril, Jamaica in May. Here are some of the factors that helped me make my decision:

1) the "no problem, mon!" attitude of the island - my fiance and I are very laid back, and like this theme for our wedding events.

2) my fiance is black, and the majority of our guests are white (70%). So I wanted a larger black presence in our wedding like the minister, the hotel wedding coordinator, etc. I also thought his parents may appreciate it, though I never asked.

3) Negril is on the west side of the island, so the sun sets on the water, which i think will be very pretty in the pictures.

4) We wanted to be on an island.

5) Bob Marley!!

6) We fell in love with our resort when we went for a visit last December, so it sealed the deal.

7) I love the accent of Jamaicans. it's so cool! Yah, mon!

Maybe one of these reasons will help you make your decision for or against Jamaica. Either way, wherever you end up going, I'm sure it will be magical!

I remember trying to decide on that one myself! Mexico is beautiful as well as Jamaica.. Mexico has a lot more preperation that you have to go through in order to get married (blood work!) and Jamaica doesnt. We chose Jamaica.. but it came down to alot more then just blood work! lol. We picked Jamaica because of the resort, it fit our guests a little better then our fav place to travel in Mexico.. which is the same resort just a lot bigger in Mexico then it is in Jamaica. We have a lot of travelers that have never been out of the country and we didnt want to lose them in a big resort! lol.... sorry if this doesnt help you any lol.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
