It’s hard to believe that the holidays are just around the corner.  It seems it was just yesterday that it was the beginning of the summer!  One thing that’s great about the holidays is family getting together to celebrate and enjoy each other.  The holidays are also a magical time to celebrate a wedding.  Family is already gathered together and everyone is feeling festive, the feeling of love is in the air.

Christmas in Trinidad

Trinidad is always alive with cultural festivities and Christmas is no different.  All of the cultures represented on the island influence the many celebrations, music and foods.  At Christmas, music and church play a large role in the holiday.  As families gather to celebrate the birth of Jesus it is a wonderful time to start a marriage.  A Christmas time wedding is a special way to end a year and get ready to start a new one.  Better  yet, a New Year’s Eve wedding is a fun way to begin a new life with someone special and with the people that matter most.

Weddings Carnival Style

If something more festive is what you’re looking for then Carnival is what you need.  The official carnival days are the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday every year.  However, festivities really begin after Christmas.  After Christmas Calypso tents are opened and they offer many types of cultural shows from limbo contests to soca concerts.  The official Carnival is made up of soca and calypso bands, masquerade costumes and musical competitions.  Every one joins in the festivities, it is an explosion of color, music and revelry.  A wedding during this non-stop party could go anywhere your imagination takes you.  If the traditional white gown is not for you, let the vibrant colors of Carnival inspire your color palette.
