St. Thomas - Weddings the Island Way

Recommended Posts

As an update, I have found another planner and I am very satisfied so far. Instead of just responding to email, my new planner actually picked up the phone to call me and we have already had several conversations about my wedding. I actually like her ideas. She is not only arranging a ceremony on the beach along with the reception but we will also have a mini island tour for my group. I think I can breath easy now.

 

For the record, I don't know if it was just timing or me being impatient for things not working out with the other planner. I am in no way trying to speak badly about any one.

Shake may I ask if you are now working with. I know my WC is already doing 2 wedding on my day. I'm wondering if she added a 3rd.

 

Also just to chime in on the "Weddings the Island Way issue". I looked at what Scubadiva noted and it does show that Shake says she's working with Angela. Guess there's another Angela that's a WC in St Thomas lol.... I'm sure Scubadiva wasn't trying to create a problem. But in the future if we don't want things that we say to be quoted or remembered in a forum... we probably shouldn't say them....

 

Happy Planning Ladies.

Again I stated please correct me if I am wrong. The way she put it really sounded like she was using them as a WC. I am glad I am wrong because I have had nothing but great communication from them!

I'm sorry if I caused confusion. I didn't realize that there was an Angela at Weddings the Island Way. Repeat, I did not originally contract with Weddings the Island Way.

 

Ashley, my new planner is Leslie Dawson at Perfect Weddings of St. Thomas. So far she has been beyond great!!!! Let's hope this remain that way. If they don't then I am afraid that I will have to classify myself as a bridezilla which I'm trying to avoid with every fiber of my being...lol.

Great Shake no offense to you but I was gonna be pissed if my wc took on another wedding on my day. I'm like darn isn't 2 enuf lol. But hey there wouldn't be anything I could do about it. I would have def made the transition into bridezillahood lol. Congrats I hope everything works out. Where's your wedding location, maybe we can get a pic together or something. There are like 3 St Thomas brides on my cruise so we all plan to take a pic together once we get back on the ship.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
