I’ve been meaning to share this for awhile now – this wedding took place last month at Havana Blue. Actually, the wedding was in Our Lady of Perpetual Help (remember the post with all the rose petals….40,000, yes, 40,000 rose petals to fill the aisle!). The cocktail hour and reception were hosted by Havana Blue, at Frenchman’s Reef. Our bride’s family was Peruvian and it is a Peruvian tradition to have a “La Hora Loca” during the reception – a “crazy hour” and crazy it was!
We started with these Caribbean Carnival Dancers entering the reception and showering the guests with Mardi Gras-esque hats, masks, boas and pulling everyone out onto the dance floor.
We then had Princess Diana come and amaze the crowds with her fire dancing.
We ended the night with the Carnival troupes dance routine…absolutely the coolest thing. You don’t have to be Peruvian to have a la hora loca. It’s a great way to bring in island traditions and expose your guests to some of the local culture. It is totally worth every penny and something your guests will remember for a long, long time.
