Destination Weddings Discussions

St Thomas, St John, St Lucia???

Hi girls! I'm new to the DW board...just got engaged a few weeks ago.  My FI and I said we were going to enjoy being engaged and start planning at the end of the summer, but I'm just too excited!!  We know we are going to do a DW, as we have both always wanted to get married on the beach.  We are thinking the Virgin Islands, but when I did some quick research I didn't see a lot of resorts that fit our criteria so I thought I'd see if anyone had suggestions.  I want to stay at an all-inclusive resort, that isn't too expensive (I'm thinking <$1000 per person, without airfare).  Does anyone have any suggestion?Thanks so much!

    FWIW at this point, to my knowledge, the limited number of hotels/resorts on St. John do not offer an AI option. We have no regrets about doing our wedding there, though.We rented a villa and got married on Trunk Bay. There are some larger villas that will accommodate 10 - 12 people (you don't mention the size of the crowd you're expecting) and a limited number that will let you do a small reception as well. Let me know if you're interested in more information.

    Congrats!  My FI and I are getting married in St. Thomas in February 2009.  We are taking a cruise with close friends and family and will be married on a beach (still trying to decide which one) while we are in that port for the day.  We considered AI but soon realized that it was going to be too pricey for our guests if we had it in St. Thomas.  We thought the cruise was a nice idea (my sister did something similar with a RC Bermuda cruise).  The cruise is about $750 per person (without airfare) for an interior room. The cost includes all food (you pay for your drinks).  If you have any questions feel free to email me bav4 at pitt dot edu.  HTH!
