Mirla-Samuelle Pierre, 32, a reggae singer, puts on a tiara, as she gets ready before her wedding to Duckyns St-Eloi, better known as 'Zikiki', her drummer and composer bandmate, at the Church of the Adventist University of Haiti, in Diquini, Carrefour, Haiti, December 28, 2017. If a couple has relatives abroad willing to be the 'godparents' or witnesses, these will typically make a financial contribution to the wedding, including buying and shipping the bride's dress, usually a bouffant white gown. Pierre said her cousin who lives in New York and was her wedding godmother purchased her dress, shoes, gloves and tall sparkling crown, "I wanted to be different to everyone else so I got the tallest one there was," she said.

Marriage is not as widespread in Haiti as in other Western countries, given the long-standing creole tradition of 'plasaj,' an informal marital relationship that is common in rural areas but not legally recognized. Yet marriage has greater prestige and is particularly favored by Haiti's wealthier, cosmopolitan urbanites, according to Haitian sociologist Tamas Jean Pierre - not least because it is recognized abroad. Still, in a country where more than half the population lives under the poverty line of $2.41 per day, only the wealthiest of Haitian couples can afford the full shebang of a wedding ceremony, lavish dinner reception, and honeymoon. Most have to get creative. Sometimes multiple couples get married at the same time to save on church fees. They might skip the reception or, in the countryside, offer a simple meal of bread, fried plantains, rice and coffee. Sometimes, the whole village might provide food. Disputes can occur when there is not enough for all those who turn up, or when guests try to take home dishes or drinks. Despite tight purse strings, the showiness of the ceremony is the one element of the Haitian wedding that never lacks.

Pierre and Zikiki wed in church, mainly to please Pierre's parents. But the theme of the wedding decoration was 'rastafari,' reflecting the culture of the dreadlocked groom. Like all but the wealthiest Haitians, they chose not to spend any money on a grand reception or honeymoon. "Instead, that same evening we went out to a nightclub," said Zikiki, "and we had a lot of fun together." REUTERS/Valerie Baeriswyl SEARCH "HAITIAN WEDDINGS BAERISWYL" FOR THIS STORY.
