    I want to do a simple wedding in St. John. I picked a photographer and know what flower shop I want to use...still trying to decide on an officiant. Would I really need to pay a coordinator too?

      I would say if you're going for simple and you don't have a big guest list, then do it yourself and save some money! It's really all about what you're comfortable with. I chose to have a WC because we'll have about 35-40 people and wanted her island expertise as well. But again, it's all about what you're comfortable doing.

        Hi - I am in the same boat and also don't have a planner. We have booked the rooms and are close to booking the restaurant, still working on the photographer and flowers. I would like to have a planner but my fiance thinks it's unnecessary. How many guests will you have? I think that will be the difference in needing a planner or not. I'm worried that I'm going to be a spaz when we get down there (we have 58 guests). Well, this doesn't answer your question at all but you've made me feel better knowing I'm not the only one! I can give you the specifics of what we are doing if you want! I would love to hear about your plans.

          If you do want a WC, I highly recommend Janelle Scott from Island Bliss weddings. She's fantastic to work with!

            I think there will be about 15 people. I have just started looking into things and how much they cost...we don't even have a firm date yet. I do know that I want Greer Rivera to do the photography. We probably won't get a cake so I still need to find an officiant and flowers. What vendors have you found?

            I did email Island Bliss and found out it was $100 more for a wedding on St. John.

              I'm a St. T bride also using Janelle/Island Bliss and she's been fabulous so far. I'm using her al la carte, officiant and beach site fee only, I won't have her there the day of the wedding as an on site coordinator. I'm expecting about 25 people and I'm just going to manage everything myself.

              Island wedding service is a al la carte wedding coordinating site also, you might try them for vendors in the USVI - they have links to people they recommend.
              I have a fabulous photographer I can share in the United States Virgin Islands in late April/early MayP.M. if interested!http://img.weddingco....pvbh7hxc5u.png
