    My name is Barbie, my wonderful FH & I are getting married May 26, 2009 in St. Thomas, USVI. While on vacation on Provo Island, in Turks & Caicos for 2 days, we got stuck in on the island (and bad weather) for 4 straight days because of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Hanna! We managed to get a flight off the island the day before Hurricane Ike came to the islands. The day before we left (Sept 4, 200, my honey surprised me and proposed!

    We'll be cruising onto the island via Carnival Liberty with our close friends and family. We have been to St. Thomas before, but we went straight for St. John's Trunk Bay, which we absolutely loved!

    Anyway, we're still trying to figure out which beach we will be married at, so far Magen's Bay is winning, with Emerald Beach a close 2nd. We are considering using Paradise Bridal Consultants or Fantasiaweddings.com. If anybody has any comments about either of those two vendors, or any other St. Thomas wedding planners or recommendations, please let share. Thanks!

    My fiance and I are super busy professionals with our own businesses, so it makes it kind of hard to find time to really research everything, but we're doing our best.

    Anyway, congrats to all the brides to be newbies!

            I'm SOOO with you on the no-stress wedding planning! Who has time for that? I want this to be about preparing for our marriage, not one day! In fact, when people ask if they are invited to the wedding, we say no, you are invited to a party! Congrats and I hope this site it helpful to us all!
