October in Jamaica

Recommended Posts

Certainly could! I have been watching the forecast lately and it is nothing but rain rain rain (and thunderstorms). I am not too worried though as I know the rain is usually quick and the sun comes out after. Only 12 days until we leave!

The forecast has been a bit freaky, but so far it looks like it might be okay.  We are leaving in a few days (the 4th) and the wedding is on the 10th... hoping for the best :)  We aren't doing our wedding at a resort, so while we do have a plan a, plan b, and plan c... I don't have a resort with a plan :)

I was asking around, from what I understand it will almost always have rain in the forecast because of the tropical showers, but not to worry unless it says "heavy" rain or something.  Best wishes to you!  We are leaving tomorrow and it does look like its improved from what the outlook was last week.  That was kind of frightening.  Where are you getting married on the Island?  We will be in Runaway Bay at one of the private villas most of the trip.

I went to Jamaica (RIU Ochos Rios) around this time of year in 2008 and yes it rained but it was usually around 3:30 in the afternoon and lasted 20 mins max then the sun was back out and the party started again. There is usually somewhere that the wedding can be moved to indoors and the stormy skies can often make fabulous photo's

 

Good Luck I'm sure your day will be amazing !!

Hi lovely Jamaica brides!

I am in the same position you all were in a few years ago... getting married 10.20.13 in Ocho Rios, and a teeny bit worried. How did your wedding weather turn out?

We are getting married 9th October too, I would love to hear how the weather turned out for other October weddings too. My travel agent advised the rain is nothing to worry about, her words were "it usually bubbles up for 5 minutes in the afternoon and passes as quick as it comes".

We are getting married in September of next year...the weather...mainly the fact that it will be hurricane season really worries me! Would love to know if anyone had any weather related issues while they were there!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
