Real Wedding – Caribbean Elegance

Last year August I had the pleasure of planning a wedding for a wonderful couple and 400 of their closest friends and family! I am so excited to finally get my hands on some photos. I’ll share more details in an upcoming post but for now here is a glimpse into the overall theme of the wedding and how it all came together.
The happy couple wanted their culture to shine throughout the wedding. The bride’s side was Belizean and the groom’s side was Jamaican. The food was the biggest and most important element of their wedding. They wanted to enjoy the delicacies of their culture, so we put together a menu of traditional foods from both cultures. It was delicious is all I could say!!
The design of this wedding had to cover two very important things. First incorporate the theme of Caribbean Elegance and second, transform the venue to fit the color scheme of ivory, gold and orange. We started with the floral design of orange, yellow, ivory roses mixed with lilies and leaves. The end result was a perfect blend of bright Caribbean colors mixed with the bride’s preference of for traditional flowers. The venue’s décor was all burgundy so to camouflage some of this we covered all the chairs with ivory chair covers and gold sashes. This simple change of the chairs gave the venue a new look that worked perfect with the wedding theme.
This was wedding a perfect example how to incorporate your culture through simple and subtle ways. There are many ways to accomplish this and you can find the best way that fits your style and your culture.

Happy Planning,
