    We had the best time at Sandals Grande for our wedding/honeymoon.  I'm working on a full review, but I wanted to post some pics in the meantime.  If you want a low-stress wedding and gorgeous spot for a vacation, then this is the place.  Everything was absolutely perfect.

        Thanks for the review LilyRose! I also founf Mikael Lamber and am interested in hiring him. I am glad to hear you had a good experience. Sandals is pretty nuts about outside photographers and I haven't decided yet if I want to take on that drama, but I at least am thinking of doing a TTD session with him. Did you do one? Any input on him would be really appreciated as I am anxious to move forward with a photographer. And by the way, you and your wedding look gorgeous. Congratulations and I can't wait to officially join the St Lucia brides club :)


        Staying strong through a cancelled engagement/wedding. Thankful for all the ladies here and hoping the best for everyone!!! xoxo

          Hi Stlucia bound,

           

          Congrats and welcome on the St.Lucia's page!

           

          I am so glad about Mikael!  I received my pictures today, they were sent out form St.Lucia yesterday!  Awesome! I do have 3 full CD of high resolution pictures! 1225 pictures total for my 5 hours package!

           

          The service Mikael and Julie (his wife) are giving is amazing.  I always had an answer-email within few hours, even on weekends.

           

          Mikael did photograph before the ceremony (getting ready), the ceremony and the after ceremony-cocktail hour.  We did not went with a trash the dress (we don't have that in our french culture) but I know he is doing that a lot!  You can go on his website to see all his previous work.

           

          A lot of brides getting married at Sandals do not choose the photographer provided because is it too expensive.  If you ask Mikael, I am pretty sure he will bring you somewhere outside the resort so you do not have to worry about extra fees for Sandals.  Write to him and Julie will tell you what is the best option.  Good luck with the planning! Keep us updated on your decision!

            Hi!  I am recently engaged and looking into a St. Lucia wedding!  I am super excited and still trying to figure things out and want to thank you all in advance for all the ideas and advice! I contacted a travel agent-- which was no help and is only making this decision harder.  If anyone has any tips on just getting started I would love to hear them!!!!

              Hi britmitros,

               

              I'm getting married at the Windjammer Landing in St. Lucia next June.  When I started planning I thought the best thing was to go through a travel agent, but I also got no help from the travel agent I met with.  I have planned everything myself with the wedding cordinator at our resort.  You really don't need a travel agent!!  Good luck with your planning!!

                Hello St. Lucia brides :)

                 

                I'm getting married on May 9, 2012 at the Jalouise Plantation.  Can't wait!!! So much to think about....

                 

                Today's question:  Does anyone have any recommendations for hair and makeup in St. Lucia.  Someone that would travel to me would be great.

                 

                Thanks!

                    Hi britmitros! Congratulations! I had a destination wedding last year in Mexico but honeymooned in St. Lucia. Have you ever been to St. Lucia? Do you know which hotel/resort you'd like to be married at? Keep in mind that St. Lucia has two different airports as well when you're booked your hotel. After you choose the hote, I would suggest getting your STD (Save the Dates) out months in advance (I sent mine out 9 months in advance but some have sent them closer to the date). It may seem overwhelming at times but a destination wedding is incredible. If you have any specific questions please let me know :)

                      Hi nicc80! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding :)

                       

                      I had my honeymoon last year in St. Lucia! I would say the beaches as a whole do not disappoint but it can really depend on which hotel/villa you choose. We honeymooned at

                      Hi my name is Nicole and I am possible Saint Lucia Bride.  I am very interested in the island.  I am looking for a nice 4 star resort or villa style place to have about 40 guests maybe.  I am still not sure on anything.  Places are expensive, but I want it to be a nice resort since I plan on having my wedding there.  I love what I have researched on Saint lucia so far,but I am afraid the beaches will disappoint.  Also it could be very buggy.  The Windjammer looks amazing.

                       

                      Nicole
