The Caribbean has a great deal to offer with regards to wedding practices. While many people just know the modern day commercial part of Jamaican marriages, there are still a couple of interesting pre-colonial techniques that stay popular in some rural areas.

Traditional Food

The Jamaican wedding ceremony tradition of serving a goat curry with rum has existed for centuries, and the couple generally chooses their own goat to prepare it for the ceremony and reception. The meat is carefully cooked for hours and is also packed with taste!


The wedding dessert is an important part of any kind of Jamaican wedding, and is dished up on the day of and also the night before the very ceremony. This kind of rum treat is made from flour, eggs, rechausser, rum and dried fruits. It can be then baked, with the high end given to the priest who all performed the service and the underlying part tier towards the bride and groom.

A dime

To bring luck and prosperity for the marriage, a Jamaican bride will usually slip a dime in the bottom of her shoe. This is not just a pretty and lovely custom, but it also helps the bride to stop negative moods that may influence her enjoyment and well-being on her big event.

Family members Walkdown the Aisle

One of the most interesting aspects of a Jamaican marriage ceremony is when the bride’s mother and father walk her throughout the aisle to give her away. This is a very emotional moment in time, and it’s a one of a kind way for the family to connect together with the new bride.
