Anniversaries

Still, how about re-marriage with a sweet twist? Tahitians encourage visitors who want to renew their marriage vows through a re-enactment of a traditional Tahitian wedding ceremony, although the events has no legal standing. Bride and groom don Tahitian costumes - pareus  (sarongs), flowers and shells. He makes a grand entrance by outrigger canoe. She tops that , floating in on a rattan throne on the shoulders of best-men. The couple receive Tahitian names and another Tahitian name for their first born. This is not a church wedding, unless you consider the towering palms along the beach a natural cathedral, but it may bring new blessings to the marriage.
