Can you get married at the court house first in the states and then have a ceremony in Jamaica?

I second kristiew417.  Get legally married stateside and then have your ceremony in Jamaica.

I agree, much easier to have the legal stuff done in the US, since it always takes a while for them to recognize weddings in other countries.

We got married in the U.S. before our wedding in Mexico. Just made everything easier. 

And we don’t even count the courthouse wedding. The “anniversary” of it was a few weeks ago and we honestly forgot. We count our wedding as our anniversary.

We are doing a legal ceremony when we return from our Destination Wedding. You could do it before or after just like the others have posted.

We didn’t want to deal with the legalities of other states before our wedding “at sea”, so we are getting married in NYC or DC before we leave for our wedding. It might be easier for you. In some cities and states you can have your marriage certificate before you leave the courthouse–I know NYC is one of these cities.
