St. Thomas Welcome Dinner Recommendations

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to plan a welcome dinner for the night before our wedding. Most of the guests are arriving on Sunday, and we get married on Tuesday, so rather than have a "rehearsal dinner" we want to have a welcome dinner. I think my fiance and I will be paying for it ourselves so I would like to keep it casual and inexpensive. There will probably be about 35 people.

 

We are having the reception at our villa (Sea Star) so I think I would rather have the welcome dinner somewhere else that way the guests still think the reception is special/different. I was thinking of having it at one of the bars on the east side of the island, near where we are staying, like Funghi's or Duffys. Any recommendations or suggestions?

I never went to Funghi's, but if you are looking for a super laid back party atmosphere, Duffy's is an awesome choice. I had a ot of fun there. I was pregnant during my wedding in St. Thomas so I wasn't able to fully enjoy Duffy's selection of beverages but it is a pretty awesome place and the vibe is great.

 

Iggies Bar and Grill at the Bolongo Bay Resort is also really fun. That's where I had my reception. Wednesday (during a specific time of the year) they have Carnival nights which is super fun. There is also various entertainment on different nights of the week. Prices are reasonable and everyone loved the food.

We are having our welcome dinner at Mafolie's- it is a little pricey but the view is awesome and it's a change of scene from the resorts. I'll let you know how it turns out! 1 Month away!

Hey Jess!!! I was thinking about doing my reception at Iggies Bar and Grill also. How was the pricing? I have a limited budget but this place looks pretty laid back. I left msgs from the number on the website and havnt heard back. How did you get ahold of them to set things up?? Thanks for you help!

Vanessa - I'm having my welcome party at Iggy''s, and Lorie the catering coordinator is sooooooooo hard to get a hold of. Honestly, just keep calling and e-mailing her.

 

I had always heard that island vendors run on their own schedule, but it's so unbelievably frustrating!
