Is there anyone out there still who has any advice on a wedding at Ladera Resort?  I am not having good luck speaking to their wedding coordinator(s).  It seems like they are in transition, because I keep talking to several different people and they all have different answers.  Not only that, but when I asked for a proposal that included pricing for everything, they just sent me the cost to rent out all of the rooms, not anything about food or alcohol.  This has been going on for nearly 2 months!  I know they have a different approach to these things in the Carribean, but this is getting very frustrating.  I don't want to book my wedding there only to find out they changed their mind on something later.  It seems that even if I have it in writing, they contradict themselves.

Hi Speidelk,

 

First of all, congrats for your upcoming wedding and for choosing Soufrière!  This is a real paradise and you won't regret getting married in that exotic part of St.Lucia.

 

Ladera is located not far away form the resort I got married (Jade Mountain.)  It looks like a nice place.  I just want to let you know that it is not normal to experience so much contradictions.  I find that my communications for my wedding was very clear and professional. I do not know about all the details of your experience, but since a wedding is not something I would play with, I would not risk getting married in a place that is desorganized or in transition of any kind.  This is just my opinion.  Believe me, you will have so much more things to worry about, you need to have a resort that won't change their mind every minute. There is few similar options around Ladera, you may want to look at them.

 

Hope this help and that you are not too sad about it.  The good news is that if you can avoid trouble before hand, you are a winner already!
 

Keep us updated please!

 

Sincerely,

 

LilyRose

Hi ladies!!

 

My fiance and I have been globe trotting for months trying to figure out what's the best location for our wedding and we keep coming back to St. Lucia. I really love Soufriere, I think the Pitons are so beautiful and the Jalousie Plantation is absolutely perfect for our wedding. We're expecting around 50 guests and accommodations at the resort are way to expensive so I'll have to find another option but I'm scared that the cost of having the entire wedding there would exceed our budget so I'm looking into just having the ceremony there and I'm working on reception venues. For anyone that's getting married at the resort could you give me a rundown of pricing, I contacted the resort but nobody's gotten back to me yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated and if anyone could recommend a reception venue not to far from the resort then that'd be great as well. Thanks!!

TropicalBride10: I'm getting married at Jalousie in May, but it will be a very small wedding. Marcus is their wedding planner and has been great to work with so far. He was in Africa for a few months and just returned, so that may be why you haven't heard back from someone. Anyway, they sent me a price sheet that I can forward along, but they said that with the remodeling and name change (they are now called Sugar Beach) that the pricing would change. Here's what I was able to find online: http://www.viceroyhotelsandresorts.com/en/sugarbeach/weddings/wedding_packages

 

If you send me your email, I'll forward you the price list they sent me. It includes all the details... bridal spa services, cake, photography, etc.

 

Cheers!

Just wondering if there are any other brides who will be getting married at Windjammer Landing. I'll be married there this November! We stayed there last year and actually got to see a friend's wedding at the venue. It's really beautiful. My only worry is that the beach isn't as private as I would have liked so we may choose to go with a ceremony in the garden.

HI Mpresid,

 

I just came across the Windjammer Landing and I am wondering how it went.

Thanks in advance!

Hi! I was wondering if anybody has had trouble reaching wedding planners recently. I have sent emails to Tropic Isle Weddings, our hotel wedding planner, and the Wedding in St. Lucia planner and have not gotten any responses in a week. How long do they usually take to respond? Thank you.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
