Destination Weddings are a wonderful way to start your new life off.

 

What better way to begin your new partnership than to have paradise as your backdrop. Fastly becoming the more popular way to say "I do" destination weddings are an easy alternative to a traditional wedding. Or at least they can be. Resorts all over Jamaica offer some sort of wedding package. Some are included in the price of a five, or more, night stay. You can make it as simple as just the two of you, a few friends or a weekend of fun with family and friends.  

 

Jamaica has made it easy for you!
