A different wedding journey

Shareen vintage

Dress: Shareen Vintage but you can find similar vintage dresses on eBay here.
I’ve never been one to fuss about weddings hence why mine was exactly what we wanted: easy and relaxed. We had some meaningful love sayings & quotes hung up around the venue and the whole day was simple and minimalist.

If Michael and I felt like doing another one day, these images remind us of what it would include:

st lucia

Michael and me would go back home to St Lucia (where I am originally from).    Everyone gets flown there on a private jet (may as well go all the way) for a ceremony on a secluded beach.  I would wear two ‘something olds’ 1. My grandmother’s rose gold ring on my right hand (I still wear it now – it’s just seen in the above pic)  2. A re-worked vintage dress from one of my fave vintage spots.

Shoes are optional.  Hammocks are everywhere and St Lucian rum and coconut water mixed drinks are on tap for all. We’d have a chartered yacht trip around the island and would be married by Michael’s father, who is an ordained minister.  The whole day would feel like a party.  The cakes (yes more than one, I have a sweet tooth) would be a gift from a girl who loves baking (this really happened for us).

Ring wise I’d go with an emerald solitaire Forevermark diamond.   Forevermark diamonds are rare (less than 1% of world’s diamonds qualify).  Each is uniquely inscribed with a number so it can be recognized for generations to come (and can be registered to you online).  Plus they’re responsibly sourced (an important bonus).

Actually I’ll keep this post for wedding anniversary ideas to show Michael….

    Bliss, what a beautiful idea to get married at your birthplace. I’ve lived in st. Marten for a while and I cannot forget the Caribbean and it’s life.

      Hi – I got married last year August – this is really a post on if we did another one what we’d like it to *maybe* involve (minus the private jet unless I win the lottery)
