The Caribbean Romance Pavilion

IMG_0915

 

In honor of Caribbean Week in New York City, the Caribbean Romance Pavilion was hosted on June 3, at EZ Studios.  Over 200 brides, grooms, and loved ones came together and planned their dream destination weddings and honeymoons.  Before grabbing their gift bags and heading out the door, we asked couples to describe what was the most important element in planning their destination weddings and honeymoons.  This is what we found:

 

1.       Resorts with Top to Bottom Wedding Packages: Many couples planning destination weddings want a carefree getaway wedding that doesn’t require the planning involved with elaborate local weddings. Couples are loving resorts that offer full blown Destinations Wedding Packages that include an onsite wedding planner, makeup and hair services, onsite wedding officiate, advance wedding certificate planning, decorations, hotel stays for guests and the rest of their wedding needs.

 

2.       Adults Only Resorts: Couples want to relax and enjoy their wedding vacations with other adults in a calm, slow paced environment. It’s an avenue for joining close adult friends and family without the stress of planning and caring for children.  The destination wedding becomes a vacation for all.

 

3.       Exotic Elements: Just as couples seek memorable elements in local venues, couples are seeking exotic atmospheres for their destination weddings. Couples gravitate toward white sand, clear waters, striking resorts grounds, exotic food, and luxury exotic accommodations. Because couples are saving money with a smaller guest list, they splurge on a unique atmosphere.

 

4.       Privacy:  Bungalows, private suites, and secluded cabins have become a must for destination weddings. With family and friends in the same location couples find it romantic to get-away to their secluded accommodations with a view.

 

Do you agree?  What do you think is most important in planning your destination wedding or honeymoon?  Let us know by commenting below!

You know when you are really nervous and shouldn’t be laughing but it makes you laugh more and you just simple CANNOT stop? That’s what happens here, understandably laughable.
This bride just can’t stop, it’s the wedding moments like these that translate into long happy marriages.


2. Sometimes staying closer to land is the safer option

Getting photo opportunity on a beautiful dock in Michigan sounds wonderful, right?  Well after seeing this entire wedding party go under, you might think twice about that waterside photo.


3. Talk about an unforgettable wedding moment! 

Hopefully all of your groomsmen have themselves pulled together for your big day.  Tip for groomsmen: wear a belt!


4. Have bridesmaids are smart enough to stay hydrated, get sleep and wear comfortable shoes!

You don’t need anyone, especially one of your bridesmaids passing out on you while you are trying to say your vows! KEYWORD “trying”!


5.  If your fiance is the funny guy, you will be sure to have one of these performances on your big day!

Surprise dances for brides and grooms are super popular now-a-days.  This wedding moment is all about the groom…. AND  all of his groomsmen showing off…


6. And lastly, those moments when your MOH does something completely unexpected

Making the most of your maid of honor speech is something that your guests will appreciate as much as the bride and groom.  This MOH really stands out with her rap to her older sister on her big day.

Please share your favorite funny wedding moments with us!
