Welcome to the St. Lucia Brides Forumâ€¦.. I am glad you have chosen St. Lucia like the rest of us. I have heard and seen beauticful pictures of the place and sure you wonâ€™t regret having your wedding there. My Fianc© and I as well have never been there, so first time for us as well. I am so excited my wedding is in June only 4 months awayâ€¦ Canâ€™t wait.â€¦
Congrats and good luck with your planningâ€¦ We are hear to help anyway we can. There are a few brides to be that have been before so they can help with more info if needed.
Anyway, here are a few comments on your questions asked. I am using Awesome Caribbean as my wedding planner, so good choice. They are grate!! They can help with planning your accommodations. At first I planned on booking with Windjammer because it was AI, however considering the price and location and that everyone would have to take a shuttle bus, I canceled and booked with Bay Gardens Beach Resort for my wedding accommodations, recommended by AC. Bay Gardens is located near the Caribbean sea beaches and is close to all shops- restaurants, if you are looking for that. Not all-inclusive, but very reasonable As far as Almond, I did a few research and from what I heard it is not all that, especially if you are looking for a nicer beach, reasonable price for all-inclusive though. My Wedding Ceremony will be held at Pigeon Island. My honeymoon is booked with Sandal Grande. I spoke to few people that been there and they had all postive things to say., so great choice... I will let you know how it is when I get back....
I am sure the others would like to comment and give there recommendations as well for consideration.

We will be travelling from London, England and have already started looking at prices for hotels and accomodation and it aint cheap. Both me and my FI have never been to St Lucia, but wanted to get married in the Carribean. We both fell in love with the pictures of St Lucia. Given that it is expensive for our guest to join us for our wedding we are trying to make it as cost effective for them as we possibly can. we are planning on staying at the Almond Smugglers Cove, as we have children in our party and its looking like this is one of the cheapest AI resorts for families. I have decided to go with Awesome Carribean weddings to plan my wedding day and wanting to get married at Pigeon Island on either a private beach or cliff view.....any recommendations? We are unsure about our reception at this stage but the beach party looks good. I have heard some of you mention that your booking resturants, do they include a party for you also with music etc?
We are planning on going to Sandels Grande after 7 days at ASC for a further 7 days for our honeymoon.
Could anyone please offer advice on are plans so far we havent booked anything yet and just wanted to make sure where doing the right thing. Does anyone know anything about ASC or Sandels Grande? We need to keep the price down for guest, but are happy to pay whatever it cost for our accomodation for our honeymoon, is Sandels a good choice or is there a better option?
Sorry for bugging you all with my questions, but just really anxious about my decisions and want to be sure before we book.
