Saint Lu­cia Tourist Board Says ‘I Do’ at 2016 WedLuxe Wed­ding Show

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Saint Lu­cia Tourist Board kicked off 2016 with a bang, par­tic­i­pat­ing in one of the most sought-af­ter wed­ding shows of the sea­son, show­cas­ing ev­ery­thing that is ro­man­tic about Saint Lu­cia.

The WedLuxe Wed­ding Show, now in its sixth year, took place on Sun­day, 10th Jan­uary, 2016 in Toronto, Canada. The event is by in­vi­ta­tion only to sup­pli­ers and this year wel­comed some 2,000 vis­i­tors.

Part­ner­ing with the WedLuxe Wed­ding Show – hailed as one of the best, most lux­u­ri­ous wed­ding shows in the world – guests were treated to the Saint Lu­cia Sweet Life Co­coa Bar, an in­ter­ac­tive area where newly-en­gaged part­ners and their guests sam­pled de­li­cious co­coa treats in­spired by Saint Lu­cia.

Vis­i­tors had the op­por­tu­nity to win lux­ury gift bas­kets and the ul­ti­mate prize of a hon­ey­moon in par­adise at Ladera Re­sort in the world's lead­ing hon­ey­moon desti­na­tion, Saint Lu­cia. This is the se­cond year in a row that Ladera Re­sort has part­nered with the Saint Lu­cia Tourist Board at the WedLuxe show. This is a fit­ting grand prize as the Caribbean Tourism Or­ga­ni­za­tion has of­fi­cially de­clared 2016 to be ‘The Year of Ro­mance in the Caribbean'.

More than 300 en­tries were re­ceived. Those who en­tered will be in­vited to at­tend a pri­vate in­for­ma­tion evening with the Saint Lu­cia Tourist Board and part­ner New Wave Travel for desti­na­tion wed­dings and hon­ey­moons.

“This was our first year par­tic­i­pat­ing in the WedLuxe show as an ex­pe­ri­en­tial part­ner and we were im­pressed with the qual­ity and cal­i­bre of the event,” said Ali­son Theodore, Re­gional Mar­ket­ing Man­ager for the Saint Lu­cia Tourist Board. “Our Sweet Life Co­coa Bar was one of the most pop­u­lar at­trac­tions and the In­sta­gram and hon­ey­moon con­tests were well re­ceived. It was a suc­cess­ful event and fun for all in­volved.”

The Saint Lu­cia Tourist Board will be par­tic­i­pat­ing in other wed­ding shows this year.
