The Caribbean Tourism Organization is once again injecting a little romance into Caribbean Week New York. For the second year running, the region’s tourism development agency has retained Wedding Salon, the planners of United States bridal tradeshows for the luxury market, to organize a Romance Pavilion at the grandest Caribbean tourism event in New York.
The Romance Pavilion is an opportunity for engaged couples seeking a romantic honeymoon or destination wedding to connect with renowned Caribbean resorts, countries, and travel agents.
Wedding Salon, a partnership between American event planner, Tatiana Byron, and Martha Stewart Weddings, organizes high-end weddings and luxury bridal shows. Their shows attract thousands of brides-to-be, celebrities, and socialites seeking to discover the latest trends and meet with the top vendors.
“Destination weddings are on the rise with one in four couples getting married in a locations far from their residence. The Caribbean Romance Pavilion provides couples with the opportunity to speak to vendors and decision makers that would otherwise be a flight away. It’s comforting getting to do some of the planning face to face,” said Ms. Byron.
Over 300 couples have already registered to attend the event, where they will meet the top local vendors from the Caribbean who will help plan these couple’s destination wedding or honeymoon.
It will be held on Wednesday 3 June from 5:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. at Ez Studios on 325 West 37th Street, New York. The programme will include a refreshment station, Beautini makeup trials, a flower adorned canopy by QG Floral , Glamour Closet designer gown previews, Artemix Tattoos, M2M DJs, door prizes and luxury swag bags with surprise products such as Essie and OPI.
