DestinationWeddings.com and the Jamaica Tourist Board Declare “Love Is Not Cancelled”
In an effort to celebrate love in a time of crisis, DestinationWeddings.com, the leader in the romance travel industry and the Jamaica Tourist Board, the Caribbean’s Leading Tourist Board, announce, “Love is Not Cancelled”. DestinationWeddings.com and Jamaica will host a virtual, symbolic wedding ceremony for up to 100 couples who have had to cancel or postpone either their domestic or international wedding as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our hearts break for those who’ve had to postpone or cancel their wedding due to the pandemic,” says Jen Avey, Vice President of Marketing for DestinationWeddings.com. “So, we wanted to do something special for these couples and give them an opportunity to experience a destination wedding, albeit virtual, at a time when they are unable to hold their own ceremony.”

This event is a new twist on this promise, and we are excited to be hosting this symbolic virtual wedding and look forward to welcoming these couples when they visit us for their bona fide celebrations, when the time is right”.
