Is Barbados for you?

Barbados could be the perfect choice for your DESTINATION WEDDING abroad,

 

The scenery of Barbados

Barbados has stunning seascapes and landscapes and an abundance of golden beaches, you will have no trouble finding the perfect location and venue for your destination wedding. With  miles of powdery, white sandy beaches, year-round sunshine and tropical sea breezes. Barbados has a plethora of beautiful hotels and villas, many right on the beach.

It will be hard to resist the temptation of a bare foot wedding and walking on  white sands. A cool sea breeze blowing off the Atlantic ocean, relaxing to the sound of waves breaking on the shore.

 
 The people of Barbados

As a ‘Brit’ you will feel right at home on this Bajun island. The people are friendly and care greatly about making every visitor feel special. It is a charismatic island with a unique charm and warmth, unlike any other Caribbean island.

Barbados was once part of the British Empire before Independence, some 50 years ago. Cars drive on the left hand side of the road and the whole island has a distinctly British, rather than an American, or French vibe about it. Barbados, has a rich and fascinating history. Its people are praised for being some of the friendliest in the world.

The climate and weather of Barbados

Barbados stands alone in the Caribbean Sea, to the East of the other chain of volcanically formed West Indian islands. It is unique as it was formed many thousands of year ago by the buildup of coral. It is this coral that gives Barbados beaches their glorious golden sands.

Barbados weather is generally warm and sunny all year round but although warm, it is cooled by the North Easterly trade winds. Barbados has over 3,000 hours of sunshine each year, making it an all round holiday destination!  However being a tropical island, it does rain! This is usually the time to visit the rum shack or bar maybe!

The Romance of Barbados.

Whether you are planning to invite everyone you know, or just your nearest and dearest in a small intimate wedding, you will be sure to find a suitable venue on  the island of Barbados. Only you know what will make your dreams come true.

A sunset wedding is indeed the most romantic time of day to celebrate, taking place away from the heat of the midday sun. A cooler venue may be found in one of many botanic gardens or old plantation houses, spread across this island.

 

LOVE THE IDEA but you are on a tight budget?
Then let’s chat. There are ways that this could still work for us both.
Interestingly after all, the costs of having me attend your wedding ceremony, may be equal to the cost of  having another couple at your wedding celebrations. So having your own celebrant makes such good sense !

 

What to wear at a Caribbean Wedding 

Bare feet or top hats that is the question!

If you are wondering what to wear to your Caribbean wedding, as a Bride or Bridegroom then I suggest the following:-Barbados is a tropical island and the temperature remains the same into the evening.

A cool mountain or sea breeze may require a shoulder wrap, but a jacket will most probably be too hot to wear unless you are in an air conditioned hotel. Elegant Tropical wedding fashions offer comfort through the day and into the evening.

If your ceremony is on the beach, then flat shoes or no shoes is the best option. Comfort must come before vanity in this climate of warmth and humidity! A lavish traditional English wedding in a plantation house may demand a greater elegance and top hat and tails may be just the ticket!

Some young Bridegrooms favour lightweight, white linen trousers or chinos, worn with an open cool shirt. A jacket is a challenge in the heat, unless lightweight and unlined. Brides will feel most comfortable in natural fabrics such as a soft cotton, tulle, silk or lawn and my advice is to avoid the tradition nylon and synthetics of European style dresses.

I have seen Bridegrooms and Brides on the beaches in  Barbados in English style suits and dresses which are often most unsuitable. They can’t wait to get out of them as soon as the ceremony is over, which is such a shame!

Choose sensible clothing suitable for the hot climate, that is light and comfortable.
