Beach/Villa wedding questions

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I'm a newbie. Having trouble picking a wedding spot-- thinking about USVI. Beach wedding, then head back to a villa for dinner, drinks, and dancing. Pretty casual. Anyone have any experience in the beach/villa route? Any insight into the cost of getting your wedding reception catered at a villa in St. Thomas or St. John? Our group may be pretty large for a destination- max would be 80 pp-- are there any particular villas that cater to that amount? Ones that I've found online are Silk Cotton, Bellagio Estate, One Beach Road, Blue Serenity, and Villa Ventana. Absolutely gorgeous! Love to hear your thoughts! Thanks!

First, Congrats to you!

Looks to me that you have already done some good legwork! I know all of the villas above, except one and don't see One Beach Rd as an option for that many people! Ventana is questionable, Bellagio and Blue Serenity seems to me like they would work!

Other options are: Villa Bratanica and The Bratanica Great house. They can be rented by the hour for these types of functions! (forgive my spelling)! :)

Your wedding consultant can make suggestions for caterers, there are lots to choose from!

Good Luck and hope I've helped a little!

I'm not getting married in the USVI, but I'm doing the same format in St. Lucia. You'll love the freedom it gives you to plan that the all-inclusives don't.

 

Good luck with planning and congratulations!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
