BVI? who has been there? need info :)

Recommended Posts

I just did a bunch of different searches and only found 1 or 2 posts about BVI.

 

My MOH may be having a destination wedding (EXCITING!) in 2009 and told me last night they are considering BVI - i want to try to help her and obviously since my wedding is in 3 weeks i need another project to come back to LOL!

I just got back from St. John 2 days ago and took a trip to Jost Van Dyke. It's my favorite place on earth!!! Alys, look into Jost, you won't be disappointed!

I sailed around BVI last March and LOVED it! I think my cousin went to a wedding on St. John but we only stopped there (at a beautiful restaurant called the Equator!) Like others said, Jost van Dyke is very fun but beware of travel books that suggest that you "must see" the Bitter End and some cave thing as they are both built up tourist traps. It sounds like there are a few of us on the forum that can help out, so let us know when you get to seriously searching. Best wishes for YOUR wedding, too!

I love the BVI!! I've been to both Tortola and Virgin Gorda, the two main islands. On Tortola there are several wonderful hotels and condos to rent as well as some awesome villas that have multiple bedrooms, pools, maids, cooks, etc. On Virgin Gorda, you have The Baths, a place where it looks like a giant tossed up huge room-sized boulders which have made shallow pools filled with tropical fish, grottos, secluded areas, etc. In general the BVI is more laid back than many other islands, not having casinos nor huge hotels. Very intimate and beautiful!

Anyone still seeking info on the BVI, feel free to PM me. My wedding will be on Virgin Gorda in October, but I've grown up spending several weeks a year in the BVI and know most of the islands very well so if I can help, I'd love to!

Sorry I missed this, but I've been to BVI several times and the USVI once. I actually got married in the BVI on Tortola so if you still need info please feel free to PM me!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
