If you're going to have a destination wedding, there's no reason you shouldn't go all out. Against a beautiful backdrop of tropical scenery & surrounded by your closest friends & family, it might be hard to think of a way to take the experience even further. However, Jamaica has plenty of options available to make the most memorable day of your life even more unforgettable.
When people picture island weddings, images of the bride & groom standing on a sandy beach with crashing waves & a beautiful sunset in the background come to mind. A wedding in Jamaica can either shatter these perceptions of grace or take it down a more exhilarating path instead. One thing is for certain though, you'll quite possibly have the best wedding story to tell out of everyone you know.
A scene straight out of a fantasy
If you've ever dreamed of that fairy tale wedding full of luxury & beauty, there's a destination not far from Falmouth that may fit the bill. The Good Hope Estate is made up of over 2,000 acres of land with it's yard stretching out toward the Queen of Spain Valley & the Cockpit Mountains towering in the distance, according to USA Today.
The wedding couple can arrive to the historic plantation house in style with a horse-drawn carriage pulling up to the door with guests all around.
Originally built in 1755 by Colonel Thomas Williams for his wife, the location seems destined for love & weddings, accepting all who desire the ceremony be held there, stated the source.
The thrill of a lifetime
Elsewhere on the island at the Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios, couples have the chance to get their hearts beating for a whole other reason than nervousness. Aboard the Sky Explorer chairlift, the bride & groom can exchange their vows hanging 700 feet in the air, according to the Rainforest Adventure website.
This wedding package comes with photos as well as witnesses if need be in case any of the guests aren't as brave as the soon-to-be newlyweds. The "I Do at 700 Feet" offer takes the scenery of destination weddings to a whole new level – literally. Couples will have a view unlike any other as they gaze out at the expansive rainforest below before turning to each other to begin their lives together hanging from the top of the world.
For those looking to make their wedding experience even more unique than the standard tropical ceremonies, Jamaica has a host of locations suitable for any wedding album.
