2018 Brides Saying Their "i Do's" In Jamaica

Recommended Posts

Hello!

My name is Ariane and my fiancé and I are currently planning our May 2018 wedding at the Royalton White Sands (RWS) resort in Jamaica.

We actually got engaged at the Bahia Principe resort in Runaway Bay back in 2012 when we were still university students, so Jamaica as our destination location has special significance to us. We are so excited!! We've reserved 50 spots at the RWS and have just sent out our wedding invites this week. Woohoo!!

I just found this website and can't wait to see what/how other brides are planning their destination wedding!

Any other brides tying the knot in Jamaica too?

Let share tips/tricks/ideas!!

Hey Ariane! How exciting!!!!

I'm also getting married @ The Royalton White Sands in Montego Bay in May 2018 :) :)

I am only in the beginning stages of planning... still TONS to do! I havent really decided on all the details yet, just chose the location of our ceremony. Our budget is pretty tight so we need to read through all of the options and see what works best financially. 

Maybe we can give each other advice/tips/ideas along the way... I am trying to think of ways to cut costs, so may not be using floral arrangements as center pieces, instead might be coming up with a cheaper option as long as it is lightweight and will travel well packed in our suitcases haha. 

Happy Planning!!! & Congrats!

Hi ladies!

 

I am in the beginning stages of planning our July 2018 Jamaica wedding. So far, I've gotten prices/packages for Iberostar and Royalton White Sands in Montego Bay. I like Iberostar a lot better because it seems to offer more in its all-inclusive. I am looking for lots of activities, entertainment, and non-motorized water sports. lol  I'm considering Ocho Rios, too. I really want an awesome beach and some of the reviews for Montego Bay mention rocky beaches :(. Also, it must be kid friendly for our little one and Riu Ocho Rios has a kids club/camp. What other resorts have you all looked into?

Hi ladies!!

 

I am just beginning my planning as well for our April 2018 wedding in Jamaica. So far, I've looked at Iberostar, Secrets Wild Orchard, Moon Palace and Half Moon. Our top two our Iberostar and Secrets. I'm so torn between the two. I looking for similar items, all inclusive with alot of activities and a great beach.  I originally looked at resorts in Negril because they are known for their great beaches, but it seems like it has more of a relax vibe and we were hoping to have a good mix of relax and partying.

Hi Ladies,

 

WE are finally booked in the Iberostar Suites Hotel after much much research and comparisons.

Definitely wasn't easy based on the many options.  Still shopping for decorators since the flowershops that are offered by the hotel is super expensive! Vidography and photographer still looking in that.  So excited!!!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
