I'm planning to do a legal day here first like a week before my DW and just have our parents come and then do a symbolic ceremony in Jamaica.

The advice I am about to give may sound redundant (in fact, rather silly): Do Not Get Married Before You Arrive At The Resort. I received a phone call last night from a bride (who did not book with me and btw, in this case would not have made a difference). Last year, she booked her Weddingmoon at one of the resorts to be married sometime later this year. The both of them wanted to move in together but felt that they should wed before doing so. A few months ago they legally got married. They did not realize by doing so that they would void the terms of a weddingmoon, leaving them only with the option of a renewal of vows ceremony. Sandals/Beaches Resorts cannot provide a weddingmoon to a couple that is already legally married because they will be fined. This runs into many complications esp if having a large wedding party (i.e. rehearsal dinner and the rest of the amenities on the Group Weddingmoon Package). Hence my advice: Do Not Marry Before Arriving At The Resort!!
She went on to say that the only issue was not the wedding itself but the fact that the bride had many guests attending and had lots of group amenities attached to her package that would be applicable to her guests became nullified because she married before she arrived at the resort. Of course, it is still a personal preference, just a word of warning in case you are getting amenities tied to an actual "wedding" (especially at Sandals!)

But unlike everyone else.. I think Im gonna wait and firstly get married in JA since all this hard work, excitement, tears and joy have led up to that special day...I think we will get married firstly there ... Then Hop back home and hitch again once we get back home just for legality reasons.
At our 99% chosen resort (lol) they warn of having to wait for up to a year for your legal docu's to arrive... Or for an extra 60$ u can expedite it around 6 weeks but why when u can hitch back home for around thirty ? lol
Then its faster ... I personally wont have two dates. Ours is the day we made it in yamaica =)
