New St. Thomas bride with questions
Posted 11 May 2009 - 08:53 PM
I'm Mandie and we're planning our wedding for next May 2010 in St. Thomas. I need some reception advice. I originally wanted to get married at Sunset on the beach but the photos looks so much prettier in the morning! So now I'm leaning toward a morning ceremony on the beach on the East End. I originally wanted my reception to be at Oceana but I can't afford to do the lunch buyout. I'm leaning toward Agave Terrace but see a lot of mixed reviews. Have any of you been to or have had an event at Agave?

Blue Moon Cafe looks GREAT for prices though! I'll definitely be eating there!!!

Crystal, I was thinking about Mafolie as well. I've been to Havana Blue and loved it but thought it was a bit pricey. Are you staying near Mafolie? That seems like a great place as well.

I might actually stay at Mafolie. I'm waiting to get some info from them, Secret Harbour, and Bolongo Bay. If I can get decent group rates from Secret or Bolongo for the guests I'll stay with them, but if not, I'm recommending Mafolie to everyone.

Now I'm on to the rehearsal dinner and I'm trying to find a place that we can afford. We'd like to invite everyone that's coming to the wedding but our numbers are growing! Any suggestions are appreciated!!

We had a lot of people arrive on Friday for our Sunday wedding, so Friday night we just organized for everyone (who wanted to go) to hop in taxis at the Marriott and go to Duffy's for dinner/drinks. Duffy's had another party that was 30 ppl that night, so we ended up having dinner at Dos Amigos (sister restaurant to Molly Malone's) and then going to Duffy's for drinks after dinner. Everyone paid their own way and had a great time! Dos Amigos was great about separating checks (3-4 ppl per check) and gave us 2 servers for our table of ~20. There are taxis in the parking lot right there and people ended up going back to the Marriott in groups as the night went on.
We had too many guests to pay for a rehearsal dinner for everyone and couldn't really split out a group without hurting feelings. Our Duffy's trip wasn't expensive and people could either do their own thing or come out with us. It also served as our combined bachelor/bachelorette party, since our guests are scattered all over the country and we couldn't get everyone together before the wedding. Hope that helps!
