    So in October 2009 we got married at what was Grand Lido at the time (now it's Breezes). It's in Negril, Jamaica. We had a wonderful NOT NAKED wedding under the gazebo overlooking the ocean. It was all we could have ever hoped for.

    Our friends across the way got married at Hedo II, a resort notorious for it's "party" ways including a popular nude beach/pool area. We attended their wedding as they attended ours. Notes, they were not naked but got married on the beach hook of the nude beach, so there were naked people 50 yards away watching the ceremony, a few standing closer.

    So the question begs: Is it wrong on you wedding day to do this? For them clearly not, but what about the Jamaican minister? This is an element he had to endure. Is that fair?

    End notes - it was a nice wedding for them too and we're very proud of them, just curious about the nudity reaction of this board.

      I'm not sure if it is right or not.. I guess it depends on the couple... I know that we wouldn't do something like that... but each couple is different..

        Well, it's not for everyone that's for sure! I think it's the couples duty to make sure all their guests feel welcome and not awkward...but at the same time, if they tell you the wedding is at the Hedo, that's a warning in itself! Each to their own I suppose! :-)

          definately not cool bc they had an actual minister...i'm surprised he actually agreed to do the wedding. i get that your wedding should be the way you want, but in that case they should have asked a friend to get ordained out of respect!!

            In Jamaica the minister has to be ordained in Jamaica. While it would not be for me, I am fairly sure that the minister that officiated was fine with it -otherwise he could have declined. he would have been told the location and time prior to making the committment to officiate!

              Ha! that's pretty funny. I would like to think it would never happen at my wedding, but we actually had some nudity... Our wedding day was also a friends 40th birthday, he got the idea after dinner and a few drinks that he wanted to go for a swim in the ocean (which was about 50 yards from the house and out of direct view of the wedding dinner) in his birthday suit. In the mean time, the rest of the guests went to the roof of the house to watch the sunset. Only a few of us knew what was going on, and found it hilarious... especially since the mom's had no idea. We really couldn't see anything, so it wasn't so obvious.

              So no I wouldn't want nudity at my wedding, but sometimes is just happens and you go with it. I would think the minister would have a clue about the place... but maybe not.

                  In my opinion I think it is abosutely hillarious. I mean I don't know if I would say it's wrong but it's definetly different and I think I could say that majority of us bride to be's would never consider it. And if the minister did this, i'm guessing it was okay but he probably was NOT happy about it!

                      haha to each their own, eh.

                      as hilarious as i think it'd be to have some naked people lingering in the back of my wedding photos, i don't think i'd plan to have a wedding that way.
