With historic churches and synagogues, centuries-old sugar mills and forts, romantic resorts and glorious palm-fringed beaches, the U.S. Virgin Islands provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic island wedding. Brides-to-be can plan a unique USVI wedding, complete with ceremony and reception full of the local Caribbean flair. Working with a resident wedding planner is an ideal way to incorporate many USVI traditions into a romantic destination wedding getaway on St. Croix, St. John or St. Thomas.
While the beach is a beautiful setting for a romantic Virgin Islands wedding, those looking for the unconventional can “take the plunge” in a service orchestrated entirely underwater. Couples can also explore the many cultural locations for a ceremony. From Fort Christianvaern on St. Croix to the Annaberg Sugar Mill ruins in the Virgin Islands National Park on St. John, to a wedding at sea off the coast of St. Thomas, cultural and historical locations provide an unforgettable backdrop for a wedding.
Traditional madras fabric is the perfect accent for a Virgin Islands wedding. Incorporate the fabric into the bouquet or the groom’s tie. Add indigenous flowers, such as the hibiscus, into the decorating scheme. Ensure that your guests take home a special souvenir with handmade party favors from local craftsmen. Serving local fare is a must for any wedding in the U.S. Virgin Islands. A traditional black cake, a rum cake blackened by molasses and a variety of liqueurs, is a unique custom at any Caribbean wedding.
To try out all this first hand, book the USVI’s “Test Drive Your Wedding” package. Brides-to-Be will spend 3 nights in the USVI visiting local venues, inspecting hotel properties, participating in bridal training seminars led by celebrity wedding planners and meeting with local vendors. The package includes your hotel stay, round trip airport transfers, bridal symposium registration, along with dining and shopping certificates. Best of all, have the price of your package reimbursed if you book your destination wedding in the USVI after your “test drive!” The Test Drive Your Wedding” package is available July 9-12, 2013. This special package for brides-to-be is bookable only on www.VisitUSVI.com and must be booked by June 30, 2013.
