    So I am planning an 8.9.10 wedding in St Thomas, but I feel torn between the Marriott and Emerald Beach. We initially were thinking of inviting 100+ people, but after we realize that was crazy especially since we were paying for 99% of the wedding we dropped it down to 50-60 invited. I looked at Emerald Beach and the prices are great, but the reviews from tripadvisor have been swaying me. I looked at the Marriott and the ceremony prices are great, but the reception prices are crazy. Does anyone have any other reception sites that are near by, but still offer true Caribbean food? ( I have an issue with going to the caribbean and eating italian or french food)

      If you're using a St. Thomas WC, they may be able to help you find a venue and caterer.

        The prices for the marriot receptions are crazy!!!! I've heard really good things about Havana Blue Restauraunt which is on the Marriot but privatley owned. I have hard that you can walk there from the wedding gazebo at Marriot. I went on their website HAVANA BLUE - Passion - HavanaBlue story and their prices are reasonable. I know my fiance and I are planning a St Thomas wedding for October 2010. We are going down this december and staying at the marriot so i figured we would have the reception there but the prices are crazy!!! Its more expensive the my venue at home were Im having at reception when we get back!

            I'm also planning a wedding in St. Thomas for April 27, 2010. We've rented a villa and are having the reception there with a caterer. Good luck!

              Thanks everyone we have definitely decided on the Marriott for the ceremony and we are thinking of offering our friends the option of both hotels and the timeshare as they have bigger suites for families. We are now debating whether we should do Havana Blue or the Marriott food, I am waiting to hear back.
