Congrats and welcome! October is a nice month to get married in Jamaica. I was married nearly 4 years ago (October 20, 2011) at the Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica in Runaway Bay. We loved it, and the Jamaican people. The resort was wonderful, and even though it was only the two of us, they treated us like a king and queen. We were married in the gazebo on the beach and then went off resort for photos afterwards. It rained for about 10 minutes right after our ceremony then it dried up just as quickly. It's still very warm in October - our ceremony was at 1:00 pm - but for some reason that resort and the gazebo have a wonderful breeze that comes in off the water and it's gorgeous.

 

There are several past and present Jamaica brides on the site so there will be no shortage of information for you to dig up.

 

Good luck and happy planning!


I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

      Thank you everyone for the replies. We havent decided on a resort yet. My fiance is interested in Riu Montego Bay or Ocho Rios. I would love feedback on either one or any other recommendations. Also on costs associated with the wedding, formal invitations for am affordable price, and basically everything else. Lol

      Thank you again in advance

      @IzzyDeee recently got married at RIU Montego Bay. I'm not sure how much she checks in on here anymore, but here is her planning thread! She really loved it and said everything was perfect.

      Cost vary pretty dramatically by resort in how they price what - especially when it comes to extras. How many guests do you think you'll have? I am happy to give you my breakdown for Iberostar Rose Hall Suites in Montego Bay, but it may or may not be a good benchmark for other hotels.

       

      We skipped formal invitations all together as a place to save money. We used paperless post for a save the date and then had a website and a facebook group for attendees.
