Jamaica Wedding - Resorts?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married at Jewel Dunn's River on 11/5/16 in Ocho Rios. We have the Ruby package and chose the sunset ceremony. Jewel Resorts' website lists the documents that you need, which you upload online.

Hi @@LindsayHoward,


the jewels is a beautiful resort. I loved the time I spent there. The only reason I am not staying there is because they booked up early for next May. I cant say much for the weddings there, but staying there as a guest was a wonderful experience.


We are getting married in Canada first and then doing a symbolic wedding in Jamaica. All I need to show is my marriage certificate. There is a bit of paper work needed; but first make sure that a jamaican marriage is recognized in your country.


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?

    • 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.
