Bermuda | Caribbean

Truly, Bermuda is one of the world's greatest travel destinations may be the perfect choice for your destination wedding! World—class resorts, soft white sand beaches, gorgeous flowers, serene local population, first rate-services, and a wonderful tradition of courtesy and respect make Bermuda a perfect choice for couples. Indeed, the combination of island hospitality, sophistication, genteel British flavor, and incredible natural beauty make the Bermuda wedding destination oh-so inviting.

Impeccably manicured golf courses, pastel-hued homes set back on lovely green lawns, quaint churches, pink sand, a mild climate with few extremes, well-spoken locals with old-world manners, a never-ending quiet and comforting sea-breeze, sophisticated yet vivacious nightlife, excellent transportation opportunities and proximity to the U.S....how can you beat it?...Bermuda is one-of-a-kind. Bermuda is especially popular among older couples who may appreciate civility and service more than all-night party options. Plan your Bermuda destination wedding in the summer if you appreciate teeming activity and hot weather; in early fall the crowds dissipate, the prices drop, and the temperatures remain heavenly.

Bermuda | Currency

Bermuda | Introduction

Bermuda is a self-governing overseas U.K. territory situated 570 miles east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. With a land area of less than 21 square miles and a population density of nearly 3,200 persons per square mile, it is one of the smallest and most densely populated countries in the world. It is a land of yachts, pink, blue, and yellow little cottages, beautiful white churches, world class resorts and soft white sand beaches. But contrary to popular misconception, it is not a tropical paradise full of glorious rainforests, exotic volcanoes, or towering mountains. Golf and tennis are the most popular pastimes, symbolizing the quiet way of life here. The speed limit is 20 mph, restaurants are very expensive, and casual attire in public is frowned upon. The Island hospitality with its very genteel British influence is very inviting.

I often think fondly of the first time I visited Bermuda. I arrived aboard a 72 foot Hinkley sailing yacht as one of an all female crew. It was inspiring to watch our lady captain navigate the boat into the harbor as male bystanders watched in disbelief when they say the blond lady sailers dock seamlessly. They were equally amused when we set sail again because we had washed our clothes in town and hung them on the lines to dry as we motored out of the harbor. What a site to behold!

Design Ideas

You can welcome your guests to Bermuda with any number of little surprises (www.bermudagiftideas.com)-- perhaps a “Bermuda Triangle” pendant made from local sea glass or a handmade trinket box of indigenous cedar. Many jewelers offer necklaces created from sand dollars or replicas of early Spanish coins once found throughout the many coves and inlets in Bermuda. Be sure to also include some of Bermuda’s many culinary treats, such as Black Seal rum, honey, or rum cake.

A walk through a moongate promises a life of everlasting happiness. Another popular custom is to wear Bermuda dress shorts—the universal attire in Bermuda. Bermuda shorts, which come in a variety of colors and fabrics, are often worn with dress shirts, jackets, and loafers with tassels. At wedding receptions, two cakes are usually served; the groom’s cake is a plain pound cake wrapped in gold leaf and the bride’s is a fruitcake wrapped in silver. Your menu could include Bermuda lobster, or shark and fish chowder with sherry, peppers and rum. For native entertainment, you might hire the Bermuda Gombey Dancers, a source of great pride on the island. Gombey dance, derived from the island’s African slaves, incorporates West African, Caribbean, and Native American influence.
