Did you consider Vegas?  I dont think there is a waiting period there.  I, too, was looking for a destination that didnt have a huge waiting period and Jamaica was the shortest.  According to http://www.visitjamaica.com you can get married 24 hours after arriving provided that you have already applied for a marriage license.  However, my Fiance and I are getting married at a resort in Jamaica and we were told we needed to be there at a minimum 48 hours ahead of time (2 business days).  Which is better than the three business days for Mexico.   I would check with the wedding planners at the resorts and see what the say first.  Good luck to you!

I believe that Antigua has no waiting period at all. Antigua as in Antigua and Barbuda.

I’m pretty sure if you go somewhere “American” like Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands there is no waiting period. I could be wrong, though…

Florida also has some beautiful resorts.

You’ve waited two years, what’s two more days (if a Destination Wedding is what you really want)? And is your honeymoon going to only be four days, if two days is half of it? I’m a little confused about that….

I can understand the frustration, but I guess that’s what happens if you go to another country to get married. @RayRayFurious had some good “in-country” Destination Wedding hotspots, though!

We are getting married at a resort in Jamaica. I think Jamaica was the shortest. Our issue was the length of time AFTER waiting to receive marriage certificate. Depending on the island it takes 8-12 weeks to receive marriage certificate which you need to change name, health insurance, banks, etc. We decided to have our legal wedding at courthouse and then a vow renewal in Jamaica which will be our “real” wedding. I am not wearing my wedding dress for the courthouse ceremony. To me it is just another special day. I know it doesn’t answer your “waiting” question but it was an issue we were NOT anticipating and it caused some frustration.
