Hi from Philly! USVI or Puerto Rico Wedding

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!

What a great forum - i just spent some time reading through some of the posts and i am grateful to have found this site and community. i hope i can share as many resources as i have already found. We are currently negotiating pricing with 2 resorts - one in USVI and one in P.R.

Can anyone recommend a travel agent on the East Coast who can handle airfare and bookings?

 

Thanks!

Hey, welcome to the forum. Where in the USVI and P.R. are your negotiating prices?? Well, I'm using the forum host as my travel agent. Her name is Tammy (username: host). Not sure how her schedule is for next year, but she's awesome. That's the only T.A. I know of that I can suggest. :)

Hello & welcome4.gif! I am also in the Philly area. I am using a travel agent who is based out of the Lehigh Valley. She specializes in cruises & destination weddings and ONLY deals with the Caribbean. If you want, I can get you her information.

Hi - Thank you for welcoming me. We are talking with Carambola Beach Resort in St. Croix and Normandie in P.R. We were also looking at Caneel Bay in St. John but their wedding coordinator and sales department took 2 months to send us an email that basically said Hi and still hasn't returned any of phone calls or messages so their out (and pretty expensive so probably for a reason!).

I recently was married in St. Thomas. The USVI is beautiful! Puerto Rico would also be an amazing option. I actually wanted to get married there over the USVI, but my FI's family was too scared to go there (ugh!).

 

I didn't use a travel agent though. Good luck in your search!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
