When to Visit and Other Basics

The best time for weddings in Jamaica is in the winter that starts in December and lasts till April. The average temperature during these months is 75 °F so the term "winter” may be somewhat confusing! The pleasant climate at this time of the year is a big draw with tourists as well as couples tying the knot. 

You can encounter windy conditions in March and April that may prevent participation in many watersport activities. June to November is the official hurricane season and unless you are particularly adventurous, best avoided for marriages. 

Casual linens and lightweight cotton are best for the entire year. Raincoats, umbrellas, sunhats should be kept handy as rain is never too far away. Do carry a jacket or a sweater if you intend to visit the mountainous regions. Despite seasonal variations, Jamaica has strictly no off-seasons.
