Julee : I found that often, the resort/hotel where you'll have the wedding might impose their own photographer. You can chose your own, but there are fees to pay to bring in your own. Sandals is particularly stiff (of course they say you can do WHATEVER you want...you should have to pay extra for it ;-))
Kasia : I can't help, as I am in Canada, I can have all the documents done in English...my guess would be to call a notary and ask if they can do it in an official way, and if they can't, who could. Hopefully they won't charge you for asking a question over the phone :-)
So I am no longer looking at a villa. The different personnalities of our guests makes it very complicated for the room sharing and meal planning.
There was the National Bridal Show this weekend in Toronto, and we went. (Yes, we! My man wasn't too hard to convince). Most vendors were totally in your face, almost stripping you down to make you try a gown/tuxedo whatever it was that they were selling. Awful. BUT...we found our travel agent. So it wasn't pain for nothing. It's a company that specializes in Destination Wedding. It's called Wedding by Oceans. Something like that. We talked to what we learnt afterwards was the founder of the agency. I did a lot of research already, as we all did. And so I was asking lots of questions about specific resorts and hotels in St.Lucia, and I can tell you, there was no BS. She's been to St.Lucia and has years of experience in the travel industry and destination wedding coordination. (my gosh, I sound like I work there and trying to pitch it :-)) FYI, their facebook page is better than their website. She was praising Jade and Anse Chastanet, but she knows not everybody has that kind of budget and so is also very good recommending other venues such as villas or family-owned smaller hotels and the likes.
BBSL : seriously, you are going MIA now, leaving us all hanging as to where you had your wedding and how it was!!! PLEASE!!!??? ;-)
