~ Luxury bridal trade show planner Wedding Salon to organize and manage Pavilion on CTO’s behalf ~

NEW YORK, New York (24 May 2014) – Luxury and amorousness will come together in a marriage of sorts at the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO)’s most romantic event during Caribbean Week New York.

The CTO has retained Wedding Salon, the planners of a bridal tradeshow for the luxury market, to organize this year’s Romance Pavilion, a special show for engaged couples seeking a romantic and idyllic setting to get married and honeymoon, and married couples still deciding on their honeymoon.

Wedding Salon, a partnership between American event planner, Tatiana Byron, and Martha Stewart Weddings, organizes high-end weddings and luxury bridal shows. Their shows attract thousands of brides-to-be, celebrities, and socialites seeking to discover the latest trends and meet with the top vendors.

“We are delighted to have Wedding Salon on board to help organize and execute the Romance Pavilion,” said Sylma Brown, the head of the CTO’s New York Office, which organizes Caribbean Week. “They will bring a high level of star power and luxury to the event which is only in its second year. Their association with the CTO is a reflection of the popularity and attractiveness of the Caribbean as a wedding and honeymoon destination.”
The event, which will be held on Wednesday 4 June at the elegant 404 on 10th avenue at 31st Street in Manhattan, New York, will be open to engaged couples and honeymooners. The programme will include a refreshment station, a spa and relaxation area, a beautifully decorated arbour and wedding fashion displays, as well as door prizes and specials.
