We are planning a wedding on the beach at the Windjammer... have you tried emailing the wedding planners- Melanie and Simone... they usually respond to my questions pretty quickly. Let me know if you have any questions :)

Hi everyone! I am going to be a St Lucia bride also. We are getting married on

I have not picked a resort yet.
Hi Paulette! What are you looking for in a resort? AI or not? Maybe a private villa instead? Do you want to get married at the resort or offsite?

My advice is to get married in St. Lucia! I am so happy I did!

I agree with Kristy! St. Lucia is an amazing place and you will not regret your decision one bit! I went the resort route so if you have any questions let me know :)

I would like to be a St. Lucia Bride. Planning to have a wedding July,2010. I am so overwhelmed by everything I have no idea where to start. I am on a strict budget and I want everything haha. I would like something all-inclusive looking at having around 15 guests. I have very little time to plan so I need a wedding consultant or planner to help out with most details. I have never been out of the States and neither has majority of my family. So suggestions on where to start who to contact anything would be appreciated!

 

Good luck and Congratulations to everyone!

Hi Callie! Welcome to the St. Lucia brides thread!

 

Here are some AI's on the island:

Windjammer

Sandals (adults only)

Rendezvous (adults only)

Almond Morgan Bay

Almond Smugglers Cove

Coconut Bay (pretty secluded, but I've stayed there)

Rex Resorts

 

I've stayed at both AI and non-AI on St. Lucia, and personally, I liked non-AI better (there are so many awesome restaurants on the island). Many non-AI places come with wedding coordinators, so I wouldn't totally count them out. I lucked out because our private villa came with one who was just phenomenal.

 

But anyway, I'm not here to change your mind! I would recommend avoiding the Soufriere area since you're on a tight budget because it tends to be more expensive. Will you have children at your wedding?

 

Just to let you know, you're choosing a great place to start your outside-of-US travels. St. Lucia is a very friendly island and I felt totally safe there. You're going to LOVE it!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
