I am planning on it. Since Sandals doesn't allow outside photograhers, I will only get a few pics of the ceremony and am going over to Pigeon Island (since it's in walking distance) after the wedding for our photos.

I'm getting married at Pigeon Island, so I was hoping to go somewhere else. I'll probably find some little cove or something while I'm down there and shouldn't worry about it ahead of time. Definitely let me know if you see any good spots though!

I definitely will!

I am keeping my fingers crossed. I really want the direct flight. Did you booked your flight yet with AA? How much are you paying?

 

Did you find your dress yet? I haven't even start to look...

For the zipline thing, I know the combo one is newer. My guess is that Sandals would offer the all ziplining one (which is the one I think I'd prefer). Do you know if the tour starts in Dennery?

Really, I did not know Pigeon Island was only walking distance way. That is good to know since I will be staying at Sandals for my Honeymoon too. I was thinking of getting married at Pigeon Island, but I chose to do at a resort to make it easier and less expensive.

But from the looks of things I don't think it is going to be any cheaper. Kristy did you book direct or did you go thru a wedding planner in St. Lucia? Although I am getting married at the Windjammer I am getting nervous that is not going to be the way I want it. Maybe I am just worried about nothing.

Villa Capri comes with a wedding coordinator, Kris Wagner. I just love her! We're having the reception at the villa.

 

As for the flights, I was going to book them last week, but then a new flight popped up for our honeymoon (we're going to Excellence in Punta Cana from St. Lucia), so I had to discuss with FI which one we wanted. Now I should be booking tomorrow. The direct flights to/from JFK and St. Lucia are on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays. Definitely try to book your travel on those days. We did the layover in San Juan last year and it just kills your whole day.

 

One other thing about traveling...check out American Airlines' group travel discount. We're getting everyone a 10% discount. The round trip flights from JFK will be under $600.

 

I hope this helps!

One other thing...There are 3 different Sandals locations. I believe the Grande is the one that is within walking distance of Pigeon Island.

Kristy,

 

Thanks for the reply. Your responses have been very helpful. I am glad I found the site, you guys have been very help.

 

Thanks for the info. I will try to book soon with American Airlines, cause I really don't want the layover and I diffently want to get the group discount.

 

I am staying a Sandals Grande, so that will be cool to walk over to Pigeon Island.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
