Celebrate Sprinkle (and Sip) White Rum at Your Wedding to Ward Off Evil Spirits
Upon arrival in Anguilla, where the natural rhythm of rolling aqua waves, slight ocean breeze, and gentle sunshine ease a tension that you didn’t even know you had, it’s hard to believe how this paradise could get any better. However, on your wedding day, white rum begs to differ. A Caribbean tradition, white rum is traditionally sprinkled around bride and groom before their ceremony to ward off evil spirits and start off the celebration with good intentions.
Originally as a way to honor the union of two families becoming one household, white rum is also traditionally sprinkled at the front door of a couple’s soon-to-be-shared home with both sides of their family present. At Malliouhana, couples enjoy their own version of this tradition prior to their wedding ceremony. Symbolizing unity and blessings for bride and groom, this tradition is a beautiful way to incorporate local culture into your event.
