I have never done or planned a traditional Indian wedding in the Caribbean but I would suggest looking into doing it on an island that has a significant Indian population. That would probably make it a lot easier for you.  Look into Trinidad!

hello! i was visiting san juan puerto rico this past new years, and i met with the event manager at my hotel–the conrad:  http://www.condadoplaza.com/

 

she mentioned that there was going to be a traditional desi wedding in march or so.  i’m sure if you contact them they should have pics and suggestions.  

 

best of luck!

p.s. i know that whenever i get married, i’m also hoping to have a caribbean wedding!

Hi SChica927,

I am not having a destination wedding, but I am marrying a caribbean man and while doing my research I did come across this website that has some information on an indian destination wedding in Punta Cana, DR which is I have visited and is a very beautiful place. It may not have tons of information, but I hope it helps. It does mention a resort, wedding and reception venues and the name of their planner.

I am having a Hindu ceremony and a Catholic ceremony in the Caribbean. We are looking at either the Dominican Republic or Jamaica – my planner says those two countries are the easiest to accomodate a fusion wedding.

I would definitely look into Trinidad & Tobago, they have a huge Indian decent population and so they would easily understand what certain aspects of an Indian wedding are necessary. Is there any particular religion that you are planning on incorporating? I just ask because certain parts of the ceremony and traditions vary geographically, so make sure to that into account as well!  Best of luck!

Trinidad! Try the Hyatt Hotel, Its fairly new and decent ( normal Hyatt) AND there is a HUGE Indian population so you would be able to find everything you need there.
