HELLLPPPP!!!! St Thomas wedding soo sooon!!

Recommended Posts

Hi all!! I am new to this site ... ive been looking around some and I could REAALLY use some help!!! Im getting married on Oct 10th of this yr in St Thomas at Frenchmans Reef Marriott Hotels resort.

 

Has anyone personaly stayed there? How is the beach? Which places would you suggest for a welcome/rehersal dinner? How about fun activites outside the resort? Our budget is pretty small but I was wondering if I could find a less pricey place for the welcome dinner and or also the reception following the ceremony. I was thinking of doing the reception at the resort where everyone will be all inclusive anyways.

 

Any and ALL help would be MUUCCH appreciated!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks a bunch!!

 

Vanessa

First off congrats on your wedding! I was a guest off a cruise at this resort and it's gorgeous!!! I can't speak to any of the questions you asked other than to let you know how beautiful it is. I know my friends who were married there spoke highly of the people they worked with. Best wishes!

Here's the website for Havanna Blue HAVANA BLUE - Passion - HavanaBlue story

 

and she used DJ Eric Snow Eric Snow DJ At Large | Mobile DJ Services for St Thomas & St John who according to the photographer the party went on late into the morning because everyone loved him so much

 

Elisha Orin www.elishaorin.com was the photographer and she lives in St. Thomas. I love her work, she took the above pics of Havanna Blue and below of the Water Front Bistro.

 

I also featured another wedding where the guests all stayed in St. Thomas and for the reception went over to St.john to the Water Front Bistro, the menu makes my mouth water at this place lol Home

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
