For the most part, the reasons are the same as those that make Jamaica a top vacation destination; the warm tropical climate, the scintillating beaches, the array of beautiful flowers, the delectable food, the unique culture, the hospitality and sincerity of the people and of course, the darn natural beauty of the country!
In this world where divorce seems to be the norm, a couple managing to stay together through thick and thin deserves some celebration, and a romantic tropical destination may be the ideal.
In Jamaica, you can do it on a beach at sunset or reaffirm your love in a local church or synagogue, it doesn't matter. Your vow renewal is an opportunity to imprint YOUR personal taste, creativity, and style.
And actually, besides the usual anniversary celebration of the wedding itself, some couples do it for the freedom to have it their way. Couples who marry young for example, often have a wedding heavily influenced by their parents. In a vow renewal, they can have the ceremony they always wanted.
Since they'll be paying for it this time they are free to do it their way. And yes, some do it too simply to make it right, if, for example, there were any glitches or something was missing in the actual wedding.
By the way, your wedding vow renewal does not require any additional paperwork,likewise the ceremony need not be officiated by a recognized authority.
While many priests, pastors and ministers are glad to preside over this exciting event, you can also have a judge, notary public, or even a close friend do the honors. And like a destination wedding, you can choose to invite your closest friends and family to witness it -- or keep the event intensely private.
Much like couples planning a destination wedding, those having a vow renewal can avail themselves of the services of the many resorts' wedding planners available. They are usually very good here, but as you guess, that too can get quite pricey, so you'll need to shop around.
However, a personal friend of mine, Michelle, who has a well established and popular wedding business in Ocho Rios, offer these services as well, and her prices are very reasonable. She takes care of everything you need here!
I have recommended quite a number of persons to her who have been very happy with her services.
