Add elements of local music, food and crafts
Getting married in the Caribbean means much more than wonderful weather, sensational sand and sea.
It’s an affirmation of cultural diversity and embracing a tapestry of African, East and West Indian, French, Spanish, Danish and English traditions.
Think about adding some island accents to your celebration, which can include local music, foods and original hand crafted gifts for your guests.
Consider steel pan or reggae music, a few side dishes of fungi, sweet potato stuffing or mofongo. Forgo the mass produced mementos, in favor of a one of a kind made by hand from a local artisan.
Depending on your budget this can range form hand crafted jewelry to locally woven baskets, photographs or original art.
