Getting married is, of course, a rather
significant commitment between two
people. In Jamaica, the wedding
ceremony is an integral part of the
celebration, with elaborate plans and
large gatherings of family and friends.
While many of the old-time traditions
are no longer practiced, some have
survived the test of time.
A traditional wedding in Jamaica
typically meant the whole village or
community where the couple lived was
involved in the ceremony. Relatives of
the couple, along with members of the
community, prepared for the ceremony.
While today’s modern couples often
seek the assistance of wedding
consultants or planners, once upon a
time the responsibility for planning fell
naturally to those who lived nearby and
knew the couple.

Current issues
• Heavy rates of deforestation in the country
• Coastal waters polluted by sewage, oil and
industrial waste.
• Large of unemployment
• Depends heavily on tourism
• I think that depending on tourism is a bad thing
to do what happens if all them buildings get
washed away how do they plan to make money.
I think that they should do a little more trade then
depending on tourism.h
