    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 !!

              The weather is clearing up.  Just pray that no more systems go that way.  Jamaica can't handle anymore rain right now.

              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".

                  I'm getting married at the ROR on October 15th and I'm a bit worried too. A little rain I can handle though. Just hope nothing more!

                  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!
