Has anyone had their wedding or attended a wedding in either St. Lucia or the Cayman Islands in October? How was the weather? Were there any restrictions on activities due to it still being in the hurricane season? Thanks in advance for any feedback!

- Wedding: May 2013 - Pavilion overlooking golf course scenery, reception at banquet hall
I have not been to a wedding in Cayman, but I have been there on vacation twice, and my inlaws have a timeshare there! They were just there October ’13 actually. The weather was wonderful and since there were no hurricanes at the time, nothing was restricted that I know of.
If I were you I’d look into having the wedding on the East end of the island. It’s more secluded, natural, and only a 30 min drive from the other end/Georgetown.
Be sure to plan around Pirates Week… it’s tons of fun but also a very crowded time for the island. I think it’s in early November.

@aggie2010: That’s awesome that they have a timeshare there! What a fantastic place to vacation. Thanks for the info! I will definitely check out the East end of the island in my research. I’ve read about and seen pictures of the Pirates Week and it looks like sooo much fun! You’re right, very crowded, which probably means harder for accommodations and more pricey. Our main issue with the wedding is trying to get family on the same page with early October or end of October. The struggle :/

FI and I looked at St. Lucia but ultimately we decided to go with Turks & Caicos. From what I read, October was more toward the end of hurricane season (in the Caribbean) with the peak being in September so hopefully the weather won’t be an issue.

I’ve been to St. Lucia and it wasn’t all that crowded, so that’s a plus. The natives were very friendly too. We did have to take a cab through all the slums. They were literally shacks, and that was a little uncomfortable. It was a good time though, and the food was great. There seems to be a French influence in the food. We had thick, homemade bread French toast. It was soooo good!
