    I am looking into a destination wedding in Jamaica for May 2017 most likely in Montego Bay. Has anyone attended or had a wedding in Jamaica? Or stayed at a great resort that is affordable? I would like to get recommendations for all inclusive resorts in the area. If anyone could tell me both good and bad things about different resorts, it would be very helpful! Thanks!

        Hi TA Babs

        So far I have narrowed down to these resorts:

        Royalton white sands
        Iberostar rose hall
        Sunscape resort
        Grand palladium
        Sea garden beach resort

        Any good or bad feedback about any of these? Thanks!

        @kristendelpin  Congrats and welcome! I'm a Jamaica bride from 4 years ago. We got married at Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica in Runaway Bay, which is about an hour from Montego Bay. We loved the resort and found it very affordable. The WCs were great, the food was wonderful and the resort has this perfect beach gazebo for their weddings. It keeps it more private for you and your guests and there is an area beside it where your pictures can be taken that won't have the gawkers in your photos!  There is a full thread here for the resort - just do a search up top and it will give you some reading if you want.

         

        TA Babs will definitely be a great help for making your decision. Wright Travel are destination wedding specialists so you'll be in good hands for sure!

         

        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

        Congratulations! I got married this past June in Montego Bay at Iberostar Rose Hall Suites and would definitely recommend it. They have a less expensive resort adjacent called Iberostar Rose Hall Beach that also gets rave reviews from brides. My husband is also from Jamaica so happy to answer any questions about either!

          Love to see all the resort recommendations because I am also looking into getting married in Jamaica in Oct 2016. Right now leaning towards The Jewel Resort at dunns river. Any thoughts would be appriciated!

          Also, was wondering about the legalities. A lot of the resorts there only do "symbolic ceremonies" and I want it to be 100% legal. What documents do I need to bring?
