DW in Anguilla

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies!

 

Bklynbridetobe - it's great to hear you are thinking of Anguilla! Anguilla has a huge selection of villas, and I found them to be a really cost-effective option. Like Janis, I just did a search on the internet, and narrowed it down based on the number of bedrooms we needed and price. Good luck with the decision-making. Its certainly not easy!

 

Janis - we are still at the fairly early stages of planning. We have booked our villa (also a 6-7 bedroom one - I wonder if its the same one!), Susan for photography, and have ordered my dress and my FI's outfit. We still need to sort out food, music, flowers and decorations. It would be really good to hear about what you are doing for food - I'm really stuck on this one!

 

Good luck with the planning everyone!

Hey Cabs!

 

Wow- you did a lot already - that is great!  My fiance has yet to buy an outfit :0/  and he only has 2 months left!  lol  but just like a guy to leave it unitl last minute... hehe. 

 

For food - The staff at the villa is able to cook and provide our breakfasts as long as i give them a list of things to buy ahead of time, for lunch and dinner, we opted to get a chef at the villa.  So the cost for 2 meals a day is 600/day + the cost of the foods and for dinners likely they will have a helper there as well that we will have to pay by the hour.  But the chef provided sample menues to me and i just sent them back my different dinner ideas.  For lunch i'm leaving it up to him because for the most part we will be out and about, but i just wanted someone there in case some of us stay in and want some lunch made.  Also the chef takes care of making us some mixed cocktails etc.  I also opted to have the same chef cook our wedding dinner also instead of having it catered.   We are only there for 5 days, so I have the chef booked for 4 days since one day ,we will probably have dinner out.   

 

Hope this helps - the foold planning for the villa is a bit of a pain because not everyone likes or can eat the same types of food.  I'll keep you posted if i come across anything else that might be helpful to you. 

 

Happy planning!

Janis - great to hear from you! Yes, I hear you about men tending to leave things to the last minute. It was actually really lucky we ordered my FI a shirt so early as it arrived and it was absolutely huge on him. We've had to re-order it so at the moment he still has nothing to wear! I haven't really done much more planning actually. I originally contacted my wedding planner about 14 months before the wedding and wanted to get as much done as early as possible. I've come to realise now that everyone is on 'Anguilla time', no-one seems to be in any rush, and I'm just assuming my planner is on top of things. So I'm feeling very laid back about the w'hole thing at the moment which is nice - I just hope this feeling lasts. Still, we're gradually getting there. We still haven't sorted out food but I've been promised some menus from private chefs so I think we'll just wait for those to arrive and then choose one of them. Anyway, what stage are you up to? Am I correct in thinking you are getting married in December? If so that's not long at all - how exciting!

 

 

Ilulko - welcome to the Anguilla thread! Unfortunately I haven't been to Anguilla before so I'm not sure how much help I'll be. CuisinArt does look amazing though - perhaps a good starting point would be to contact the wedding planners there as I am sure they'll be able to help organise things and suggest vendors for you. Good luck!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
