Ideas for a wedding reception

I am planning a wedding in St. Lucia in May. I've just started the researching and I am getting really excited! I'm wanting to have the ceremony with the Piton Mountain view and we will have about 30 guests. I'm wanting to do something unique or different for the reception. I'm thinking the ceremony will be around 2:00pm. I just don't want to have the same kind of reception that I would have back here in the states, I want to do something memorable and fun. Any ideas? Maybe something with the local tradition??? Thanks for any help!!!

How about hiring a Catamaran. You could pick it up at Soufriere docks after the wedding. There are a number of company's who do charter in St Lucia, Endless Summer, Carnival to name a couple. They will be able to arrange music,food and drink for you in a package.A steel band would be fun!

I'd second that suggestion, hire a catamaran with steel band and rum punch, and tell guests to wear swimwear under their posh frocks :)

Mystic Man has sail boats and catamarans for rentals/parties right in Soufriere - would be a bit less expensive than bringing one down from the north and returning it empty.

I would second a boat trip for the reception. I would also second checking with Awesome Caribbean Weddings for coordinating reception details, especially meals, entertainment, etc.

congoman's beach party is a great idea too. If you want to stay on land, consider also La Haut - beautiful B&B on the hill above Soufriere - amazing sunsets, beautiful gardens, stunning views, and excellent food. You could have steel pan and the like also.

Enjoy!

What great suggestions. Mystic Man is awesome and would be my first choice for a boat reception. Congoman would provide you with a very unique experience that you definitely would not get anywhere else. La Haut's setting is incredible. Can't go wrong with any of those choices. Hard to choose one over another but the boat would probably be my first choice -- even on that trip it would be unique as the Pitons only exist in St. Lucia and you would be sailing right by them. Nice to have such wonderful choices and all located in or close by Soufriere.

Where will you and your guests be staying?

There are many... very lovely spots to choose from, in and a around Soufriere/ Piton area for a wedding reception.

Personally as a wedding planner here in the states, I'd nic's any idea of a boat ~reception~ in St.Lucia, with 30 guests...!?! Unless your for sure the weather gods are always on your side...;-)

A very, very lovely outing to take your guests on at some point, but... as your wedding reception!?!...you would certainly, also... need to line up an alternative location, that is weather/water conditions permitting.
