Yes we have a date, wedding will be 8th Oct 2010 at 4.30pm,
We will travel out on 3rd and stay for 2 weeks. We then have a party at home after we get back.
We have booked through Dreamy Weddings.
Not booked actual holiday yet, as the brochures aren't out til July. I am spending all my time on trip advisor reading reviews.
I am also trying to find an affordable resort. I was thinking AI, as they will have more going on during the day. Also I understand that eating out is actually quite expensive, so at least this way everything is paid for and all people need to bring is spending money. I am thinking either Almond or Rex, depends what I can find cheapest. Both seem to have good and bad reviews, so I guess each as is good/bad as the other.
Feeling a bit guilty about a destination wedding, or at least St Lucia as it is one of the most expensive places! Our guest list has taken a bit of a hit. What with the economic problems, but we hope to still have between 10 and 20 come with us. Group discount is also high on my agenda but I think that is going to be a bit extra work for me. It would be good to know what you get arranged and manage to wangle if you don't mind sharing?
Reception wise, we will go for a meal, and then I have cunningly chosen a Friday as our wedding date so after we have eaten we can go to the jump up!
Not sure where yet, my WP is going to send me some menus nearer the time. I have spoken to another St Lucian bride, and she said they went to Jacques and it was lovely. I shall wait and see as we have a couple of fussy eaters coming with us.
Have you got a dress yet? I am making my first foray into bridal shops next weekend. EEK.
Trini bride - Congratulations. I am glad you had a great time and I look forward to reading your review. Interesting to read about the flowers, I am considering taking silk, but if you have found somewhere good they may be worth me remembering.
