Tropical wedding bliss in Grenada

Romantic spots on the island range from ornate gazebos at the edge of a beach to historic plantation houses. Some of Grenada’s hotels and resorts offer wedding packages complete with license, legal fees, decorations, cake minister, photographer and even witnesses, if necessary. Lush mountain waterfalls, glorious beaches, tropical gardens and grand plantation homes are just some of the special locales that can be used for your Destination Wedding on the romantic island of Grenada.

After the wedding the honeymoon, of course, and some hotels and inns on Grenada offer newlyweds a complimentary room upgrade, along with a basket of the island’s famed tropical fruits. To help them begin their first day of marriage, a complimentary champagne breakfast is also usually provided. A variety of complete honeymoon packages is also available. Officiates are available to perform religious and personalized non denominational nuptials. Local flowers, foods, music and handcrafted wedding favors can help make a Grenada wedding like no other.

There are many ways to personalize a wedding on Granada. A catamaran might transport the couple and their guests to a secluded offshore island beach backed by a forest of coconut, sea grape and almond trees, with a floral arch and a backdrop of surrounding islands for the ceremony. A walk through a spice plantation, scented with cinnamon and nutmeg, might lead to a flower bedecked wedding bower in a private garden or a lawn of an elegant manor house. Couples also might opt to exchange their vows in front of one of Grenada’s cascading waterfalls, surrounded by wild flowers and lush rainforest vegetation.

Special local touches can start with elegant locally produced invitations featuring a visual floral theme that might be echoed in the programs and wedding favors. Live steel band music, special foods, and fragrant local flowers used in floral arches, fresh hair flowers for the bouquet and boutonniere, and petal confetti add local flair to a wedding. Individually sewn hand painted spice bags and handcrafted spice necklaces, a traditional local gift, make unique wedding announcements or wedding favors. Gift baskets packed with island made items such as rum, organic body oils, soaps, scents and spices, along with a music CD or guidebook, enhance the happy memories of both the island and nuptials for the wedding party and their guests.
