Weather? Wedding In October?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

We are so back and forth. We were initially going to have our wedding in October because we were told its hurriance season but it "only rains for a little bit" and therefore, is cheaper, but when you look at forecasts, its like thunderstorms everyday. Those who have travelling or have had weddings in Jamaica in October, is it okay?

Hello and congratulations on your engagement! Typically hurricane season in the Caribbean is June - October but rain in general in the Caribbean is not uncommon. We've been there in the fall and the weather has been pretty mild, especially compared to the heat in June/July. A storm can come in and move out pretty quickly too, one-minute clouds & rain and then blue skies. Rates are typically lower end of August through October.  Please let us know if you have any additional questions or if you'd like a BDW TA contact you just click on the link below.   TA Patty

I'm an October Jamaica bride and we had spectacular weather the week we were there. We had a brief shower - about 15 minutes - on our wedding day but other than that, it was fabulous.

 

On the flip side, we're renewing our vows next week in Mexico (Riviera Maya) and the forecast looks horrible. But we've been warned that radar picks up humidity as rain. It can't distinguish so we're hoping that's what is being picked up for next week. No matter what you make the best of it and enjoy it! We had a fabulous rate on our package because it's October so definitely worth it.

Hello- we got married in Montego Bay last week and I was worried about the weather as well. The daily forecast called for 80% chance for thunderstorms every day! It rained once, for 14 minutes, all week :)

 

In speaking with the locals these quick, early afternoon showers are common but the sun quickly dries everything off.

 

I'd also add since this is part of their low season the resort wasn't overly crowded which was great for our guests!

 

Good luck and please let me know if you have any other questions!

It is definitely true that you may get spectacular weather. However, my husband grew up in Jamaica and locals will tell you May and October are definitely their rainiest months. We were there in May before we had set our wedding date and it rained all day everyday, so we picked June instead of May because I was scared of May!

 

So my point is you just have to be comfortable with the risk, which is slightly higher than normal in October, and be okay with it maybe raining. If rain will ruin your trip, maybe go for a less risky time.

This makes me feel a little better about the forecast for our wedding next week.  Hoping a week out, there could still be some changes in weather.  Glad to hear you had nice weather for yours!

I've been watching it too, here's to hoping we get better weather than what they are reporting!

I was just married in Jamaica on 10/2/15 and was scared of the same.  Let me just say that out of the whole week we were there the morning of my wedding was the only morning that it was pouring down raining.  However as the day went along it began to clear up.  So yes like you've heard, I believe they if and when it rains for the most part  it just passes through and clears up.  Don't worry, your October wedding in Jamaica will be just fine.

Oh also I would say may sure the resort you choose has a nice indoor back up option that you would be happy with. I did that for ours too because I didn't want to get stuck inside in an ugly banquet room with no windows. Ours had a stunning grand staircase off the lobby as a backup location and, as much as we dreamed of getting married with our toes in the sand, we would have been completely fine with that alternative.

 

But I've seen some brides who had to have their ceremony indoors and were really unhappy with what was available. So just be sure to vet that with your resort so you're comfortable with it!

KG1990 I've tried to download some pics but I need to take the time to download them again.  I thought it was successful, but it wasn't.  I'd even love to download the video Secrets created.  I'm working on it.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?
