Valentine’s Day in the Cayman Islands

Valentine's Day in the Cayman IslandsThe biggest day of the year for Marriage Officers is just one week away. February 14 is Valentine's Day, and it's a busy day for me with one Commitment Ceremony (25 years together), one wedding renewal ceremony, one Destination Wedding beach ceremony for a visiting couple, one cond0-beach wedding for a resident couple, and one wedding gazebo ceremony for a local couple.

The day as planned reflects our services very well, the thing they all have in common is that they have been booked weeks, if not months, in advance. This is not the day to try and have a spur-of the moment wedding!

Valentine's Day is very big in the Cayman Islands, and the florists will have hundreds of orders to fill. If you go into the offices in George Town you will see bouquets of red roses all over, as the ladies show off their tokens of love and affection. I hear that the in-thing for this Valentine's is a helicopter ride over the island, supposed to be breath-taking and affordable.

So, the champagne will be flowing...its a great day to be a marriage officer, and one thing for sure, your spouse will always be able to remember your anniversary!
