If you planning a destination wedding in Jamaica, you will need to bring a copy of your birth certificate and plan to be on the island for at least two full days before your nuptials. There is also an age requirement. Couples must be at least 18 years old. It’s required that proof of divorce, a copy of the divorce decree be handed over if either the bride or groom is divorced. Both parties should present passport copies. So now, you need to find a place to have that romantic destination of your dreams. Here are a few suggestions.
