You’ve found the love of your life and have decided to tie the knot with a destination wedding in Jamaica, now how do you choose the perfect wedding venue for your big day? Here are the top things to consider when choosing the ideal destination wedding venue to fulfill all your needs and make your dream day a reality.

Choosing a wedding venue: Guest list and capacity

Intimate party of two or a grand fiesta for 200? The size of your guest list is essential for all the “next steps” of wedding planning. The Palm Terrace has welcomed cozy elopements and big celebrations for up to 150 guests in our lush garden and our Terraces In Montego Bay, Jamaica.

A big resort wedding may make you feel lost in the shuffle, a private villa wedding ensures that no matter the size of your party, YOU are the center of attention. Our team of Local and International wedding coordinators are experts in celebrations of all sizes and are 100% devoted to one wedding per day at The Palm Terrace. An intimate tiny wedding for only your nearest and dearest or a big bang fiesta of epic proportions, choosing a wedding venue like The Palm Terrace is the best way to manage a guest list of any size.

Define Your Destination Wedding Budget and Get the Most Out of Every Dollar

Once you have defined your guest list, you need to set a wedding budget. The Palm Terrace offers rental options from $2,500, depending on the number of guests and your time requirements. The Palm Terrace knows that every dollar is precious and therefore we have ZERO VENDOR FEES, let’s use that budget for magical things!

Church Wedding Or Civil Ceremony?

The Palm Terrace welcomes weddings of all denominations and we are happy to connect you with an officiant that best reflects you.

Prioritizing Views and Backdrops: Choosing a Private Wedding Venue

Wedding factory or VIP attention and service?

Unlike resorts that may churn out multiple weddings per day, we only cater to ONE. Our services are dedicated 100% to YOUR wedding and all the love is on YOU. You should be the center of attention, not just one of many brides and grooms wandering the grounds of a big hotel. Choose a wedding venue that focuses on personalized attention and service and rest assured that every detail will be perfect.

Choosing a Wedding Venue: Can You Bring Your Own Decor?
