Well the bride was late….or was it the groom?…the reason behind this was funny to listen to which was best told by the storyteller! Whether it was the groom’s ill-fitting shoe or the bride’s seamSTRESS that caused the delay, it was definitely worth the wait.

The procession was led by the mother and father givers who gave their blessing to the bride and groom who drank from the cups given to them. Next rice were thrown to usher in the couple. The “chariot” as well as the ladies and men balancing artifacts, breadfruit and bananas on their heads followed the bride and groom. Some dancers even broke out (or ‘bruk’ out as we now say) at the very end in some very dramatic moves which had the audience cheering for more. This was followed by the first dance as the production ensued on stage. All in all, it was a day well spent in Moriah! Tobago Sweet ‘too bad!’
