St Thomas Brides - What Time?

Recommended Posts

I have to schedule a few vendors and I have no clue what time to pick for our ceremony. It is just him and I. I love the look of the sunset pictures but also want phots when the water is bluest which I have been told is in the morning. So what time are you getting married and what look are you trying to achieve?

 

Thank you

Since we're cruising, we're only docked from 7-4 so unfortunately sunset was not an option...although would have been our first choice for sure. We're scheduled for 10am ceremony, this way we can tour the island after. My wc recommended earlier morning because it's cooler and yes the water is bluest. But we will be doing sunset pics the night before at another port.

 

Are you doing trash the dress? That may be a way to have the best of both worlds!

I'm doing 5. We originally planned for 6, but the WC said that might be a little late, we too wanted the sunset, but I like FatCrackers idea of doing it in the morning and at night...

We're also cruising and thus are limited in terms of timing. We'll be getting married at 1:00pm, although we would have preferred at sunset.

 

I really don't think you can lose at any time- as St. Thomas is gorgeous period. :)

Although I'm not a St. Thomas bride, I am a St. John bride! We set our ceremony for 4:30 p.m. Although I much prefer the water that brilliant turquoise blue color, I just couldn't imagine having to get up so early to get ready for a morning ceremony!

Hi Everyone,

 

I want to pass information along to any brides that are cruising to St. Thomas. Apparently, they do not adjust their clocks on the island like we do so your ship's arrival may actually be an hour later than you expect. For example, our ship's itinerary has us docking in St. Thomas at 10:00 am on the day of the wedding. It will actually be 11:00 am island time. As you can imagine this will really have me in a whirlwind to try to get my license and make my 1:30 ceremony. If you haven't checked it out, I suggest you ask your WC. Just wanted to pass this along.

Although I am originally from the States, I now live in St. Thomas. For the bright colors I would suggest 10am-2pm. What time of the year are you getting married? I ask because the sun sets around 7pm late spring thru summer but now it's setting around 6pm, i.e. by 6:15 its pitch black. And yes, we do not follow daylight savings time. Hope this helps.

    • Congrats on finding the perfect person for you! Love is a journey of patience and time Where are you guys planning on getting married?
    • This coming November, I will be marrying the woman I don't truly deserve but I was so blessed that God gave me her. Half of my life, I have been a douchebag. I have played with different women’s hearts. I thought I would never be able to meet someone who will love me wholeheartedly, until this woman came. I don’t deserve to be cared and loved by such an angel. No matter how bastard I was, she still accepted me for who I am. Loving me sincerely is what she has done since the first day. Because of that, I know deep within that she deserves someone better, but she chose to stay and love me. And I was beyond grateful for that. 
    • Have you decided? We just booked a wedding and stay at Azul Sensatori Negril for December 2019!
    • Nicole, did you decide which resort yet?  We are guessing anywhere from 25-40 people.  Shamil! Welcome and congrats!  We booked the twilight ceremony as well. How many people will you have? Who is your planner?  We still havent spoken to ours but finally locked down a date on the 29th of this month. Dying over here.  What locations have you looked at so far?
