Which US Territory to get married?

Recommended Posts

Ladies,

I am just starting the planning.

So far we know that we want to elope on the beach by ourselves. We will later have a party at home/reception for friends and family.

But, we are not sure where to get married.

Feedback on Puerto Rico, St Thomas, and St John would be appreciated.

I have read through some of the threads. I was hoping that some of the world travelers around here (that have been to PR and USVI) could sort of compare the two as we have not been to either.

Thanks!

GiGi

I haven't been to either, but have you checked out tripadvisor.com yet?

 

From what I know about the USVI I would go there. It sounds a little more exotic and with there only being the two of you, cost might not be as much of a factor.

I have been to all 3 places and St John was by far my favorite. The others are great but I think they are all different. What kind of place are you looking for? Quite beautiful beaches (St John) or old world meets new world (PR)?

Can't go wrong with STT or STJ!

Both are wonderful! You can choose to have your own villa and all the privacy you choose, to hotel with extra amenities! Good Luck with your choice and CONGRATS!

I have family in Puerto Rico, have stayed in St John several times, and own a rental villa in St. Thomas. All 3 islands can provide you with the wedding of your dreams. St John has pristine beaches and we consider it to be the more layed back of the islands. St Thomas, can provide you with a bit more activities, a greater selection for fine dinning (my favorite subject!) and activities. Puerto Rico is fun!fun! A lot more night life - but I would not choose it for a honeymoon location. Not romantic enough for me.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
