Get Married in Jamaica

Known as one of the friendliest places on earth, Jamaica is the perfect backdrop for saying your "I do's" in the Carribean with a smile on your face! Known for its golden-sand beaches and free spirited atmosphere, it's little wonder that so many people are on the hunt for a Jamaica wedding venue. The legal requirements for getting married in Jamaica are to simply be in the country for over 24 hours, a clergyman or marriage officer to serve as your officiant, passport, birth certificate, the occupations of the bride and groom, and two non-familial witnesses. You can also get legally married before your destination wedding to simplify the process. Currently, same sex destination weddings in Jamaica are frowned upon. However, there's hope that the openness of other Carribean countries will eventually influence Jamaica to become more LGBTQ+ friendly. Still, this laid back island can make for a truly breathtaking and relaxing getaway for any couple.
