There are hotels in Montego Bay, Negril, and Ocho Rios such as Half Moon and Sandals that provide excellent wedding packages for happy couples. Jamaica has been proud to witness many weddings. Couples from all over the world make Jamaica the island where they make their most important union. In fact, I married my lovely wife in Kingston, Jamaica. Apart from becoming the husband of an incredible woman, I enjoyed not having to travel very far to honeymoon. We arrived at Sandals in Ocho Rios within an hour and a half of leaving Kingston.

When it is high season in Jamaica, hotels can host several weddings per day. The hotels can arrange for someone to officiate the wedding, a photographer,champagne, and a wedding cake...Jamaican wedding cakes are decadent and quite appealing.
