  1. Hey, we booked through a travel agent so was really easy. After we booked we had a call from Dania. She's the Sandals Wedding Coordinator & is absolutely useless. She's sporadic at responding & seems only interested in upselling. On the plus side, the wedding coordinators on site are fantastic. Once you get there, you have a meeting with the wedding office where they talk you through your ceremony & ask you to choose the cake. On the day, you can have your hair done in the salon but I chose to have mine done in the villa. Be careful of timings, nothing happens quickly.
  2. Hi Jennifer, Our wedding cost just over £10,000, not sure what that is in USD though. That price included flights from the UK & we stayed in a private villa with butler service. Not sure if that helps you. Let me know if you need any other info.
  3. Hey, I hope all's good with you. We've been so busy with one thing & another since getting back. We had the most amazing time & loved every second. I'm sure you'll love every second your in St Lucia. How's everything going?
  4. Hi All, We've just come back from our wedding at Sandals Grande Antigua last week. We opted for the gazebo opposite the reflections pool & also had our evening reception there. We had 6 people in total & it was an ideal size. We stayed in the private villa with butler service & couldnt fault it at all. Absolutely loved every second. If you need to know anything, let me know & I'll do my best to help.
  5. Hi Welcome & congratulations. Your ceremony sounds fantastic, as does your suprise helicopter ride. We get married at Sandals Grande Antigua in 17 days, also with the BB theme. We only have 4 guests coming with us. We were going to go with the steel band but thought it may be a bit loud with only 6 of us. How far have you got with your planning? You'll find so much invaluable information on this site.
  6. Thanks Nancy, Viki, OMG get you. You look A..Ma..zing!!!! Bob will be totally gobsmacked. Totally stunning hun.
  7. A few pics from my Hen Night. Sorry they're so big. I couldn't make them any smaller.
  8. Hi Vicki, How did you get on with the wedding dress? I'll bet it was fantastic. I have mine in 2 weeks time....forever to wait! I've been reading your FB posts & you're certainly working out hard. How you getting on with the veil? We're staying in one of the rondovals with a butler. Your suite sounds fantastic. You must be so excited now. I'm sure the weather will be fine, but I hear that they talk to you about an alternative just in case it does. Part of me thinks it would be quite romantic to walk down there with big brollies & have the ceremony in the rain. Hav
  9. Hi Sarah, I think I've got my posts out of sequence. Thanks again for sending the butler info. I hadn't read this post when I said to Viki about forwarding her a copy. You loose track really quickly on here if you dont log in every day. Hope you're having a good evening.
  10. Evening Ladies, I hope you're all well. Sorry I haven't been on for a couple of days. Things have been so hectic over the past 3 weeks. I've just started a new job & it's a pretty steep learning curve. I also hate being the 'new girl'. By the time I've got my head round things I'll be off to Antigua for 2 weeks & probably forget it all. LOL. So glad to hear you had a great weekend Viki, we did something similar here for Father's day. OMG you get the dress soon. How exciting, I'll bet you cant wait. I'm sure it'll fit perfectly. I know exactly where you're comin
  11. Hey ladies, I didn't know your get a special dinner at Mario's or Bayside. That sounds great. We've also booked the beach candlelit dinner for our last night. I know it was expensive but we thought it would be such a lovely way to end our 'weddingmoon'. Sarah, I did chuckle when I read your post about them trying to sell you things whilst you're still naked.
  12. Hi Viki, We went for the cheap photo package. $375 for 19 images on a cd. We thought we'd print our own off once we got home. I'm pretty sure our guests will also be snapping away. We decided against having a video. Mike's dad is bringing a video camera but I'd rather he enjoyed the service rather than being busy filming. Also it might be a bit difficult given that he's walking me down the 'aisle'. LOL I'm not really using the spa. I'm going to do my own make up & I'm having my hair down in the villa / bungalow (or whatever it's called). I will be going in there for my
  13. Hey Sarah, Loving the pics of the conga line. You all look like you're having the most amazing time. Thanks for the info re the reception set up & so glad to hear the photographers know exactly what they're doing. I worry about the photos although I'm sure they'll be just perfect.
  14. Hey Sarah, Thank you so much for taking the time to post your review. It’s a great help. From the pictures of your wedding on FB, it looks like that was the site we were thinking about because it looked a little more private (and shaded). We also liked the idea of having the reception in there. Do you think that with just 6 of us it would be too large & look silly? You said you also had your reception in there, how did that work? Once the ceremony is over do you then go off & have pics taken whilst they set up the table etc? We’re having the 30 min hors d’eou
