    The best part of a destination wedding is having a getaway with your nearest and dearest. Plan a 'welcome' cocktail party with little extras that incorporate the culture, like a tequila tasting, a cigar roller, or a Mariachi band. Host a day-after brunch where everyone can recap the amazing time they had at the wedding before they tee off at the nearby Tangolunda Golf Course.

    Boasting Negril's world-renowned seven-mile beach, majestic waterfalls, lively locals in Montego Bay and the untouched South Coast, Jamaica is an exhilarating destination for weddings and honeymoons. The warm tropical climate, mouthwatering jerk cuisine and thrilling activities also make it one of the friendliest hosts in the world and truly an authentic Caribbean experience. Immerse yourself in the island’s laid back, “No worry" attitude or explore countless adventures.

    Imagine getting lost in a lush utopia where the beauty of the sea meets the awe-inspiring landscape of the mountains. Your tropical dream wedding and honeymoon will come true in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.  Rich greenery, mountains that loom over white sand beaches and the world-renowned Dunn's River Falls are what make Ocho Rios such an extraordinary destination. Beautifully nestled in the center of Jamaica's North Coast, Ocho Rios is home to natural wonders and colorful craft markets alike. The best way to experience the real Jamaica is to get up close and personal with it. Tour companies like Island Routes Adventure Tours offer a range of excursions to help you do just that. 

    One of the prime destination wedding and honeymoon hotspots in Jamaica can be found at Sandals Grande Riviera Beach and Villa Golf Resort.  Their philosophy: it’s “Your Wedding. Your Style.” is a concept that allows you to plan the wedding of your dreams. With Sandals' exclusive online inspiration board tool you can design to your heart’s desire and at your own pace! The resort also offers an impressive list of complimentary wedding amenities and services.

     

    At Sandals Grande Riviera, you'll have direct access to the natural splendor in the Ocho Rios region of Jamaica’s St. Ann Parish. Considered to be the true Garden of Eden and the largest Sandals Resort, it is situated on the slopes of over 100 acres of beautiful hillside gardens overlooking the Caribbean Sea.  This grand resort presents the most diverse wedding and honeymoon experiences by offering more accommodations, dining options and activities than any other Sandals Resort. In fact, you'll benefit from their careful curation of three unique experiences in one: the vibrant beach culture of the Ochi Beach Club, the private Riviera Villas with pools nestled along lush gardens, and the Great House with a sky-sized zero entry pool and swim-up pool bar.

    Does a luxury spa honeymoon sound right up your alley? It sounds like perfection to us, which is why we took a dreamy photo tour through Cancun's ultimate spa resort, Secrets The Vine- an incredible locale for romantic and relaxing honeymoons.

    This contemporary, adults-only resort is situated along a white sand beach with crystal clear views of the Caribbean Sea. Offering an adults-only Unlimited-Luxury® experience with gourmet dining, top-shelf spirits, 24-hour room service, daily activities, nightly performances, elite services and superior amenities, this elegant haven is the ideal escape for honeymooners.

    Honeymoons are about relaxing and being pampered – and Secrets The Vine accommodates. The exquisite, 12,580 square foot Secrets Spa by Pevonia is boldly inspired by cave-like structures and natural cenotes of the area and hosts fourteen treatment rooms with spa suites for couples. A full-service beauty salon provides haircuts, styling, manicures, pedicures and make-up application for a romantic night out.

     

    And, like the name implies, Secrets The Vine Cancun’s signature element is wine. Enjoy Sommelier-led wine tastings and infused spa treatments. The Spa carries a line of products made from the finest wine and grape seed essences, evoking the richness of a vineyard.

    Specialty treatments include The Vine’s Diva Ritual Spa Package: a Bordeaux manicure, a facial, a massage with a blend of antioxidants, and a mélange of pomegranate and grape wine.

    Talk about a toast-worthy honeymoon!
