Carnivale Week - St. Thomas

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been there during Carnivale? I was planning my wedding for the last week of April 2010, but I just found that is during Carnivale. I've heard mixed reactions from people -some say room rates are higher and car rentals are impossible and the island is really busy, where others say it's basically a local celebration so it's not that much busier and mainly contained to downtown. I'm just trying to figure out whether to move my date. Grrr.


Any advice would be great! Thanks!

This is my understanding of Carnival too. I know that hotels do raise rates for Carnival.


I remember reading that the court is closed during Carnival, meaning it'd be difficult to do your license stuff.

I would avoid having a wedding on St. Thomas during Carnival...my in-laws live on St. Thomas and they always say how crazy it gets during that time! I think you'll also run into higher hotel fees and possibly flights?


Even though Carnival may only be concentrated to downtown areas, that means your guests won't really be able to explore those shopping/dining areas very easily during their stay. Also, the route from the airport to almost all of the hotels is through downtown (headache!). I would be wary of possible delays that could result for your vendors or guests during Carnival...you'll have enough to stress about as it is!


Good luck planning!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
