    Hey everyone! I just got engaged a week ago.  We are planning on getting married in St. john island of USVI. 


    I feel kind of lost on where to start.  was wondering if anyone has been married on the island that can help me with the ins and outs of everything.  I have been to st thomas but never st john


    Does anyone have any good reccomendations from: caneel bay, gallows point resort, or westin? 


    I am inviting about 30 or so people to the wedding....so expecting about half that (around 30 total or so when everyone brings guests) to show up. 


    Would it be better to get a villa and hire a wedding planner on the island or use the hotel's wedding planners? If I use the hotel wedding planner, should i still hire outside of the hotel for a cake/photos/flowers?


    If I end up staying in a villa and hire a wedding planner on the island, how much does a spot on the beach usually cost? 


    I am planning a beach wedding with a SMALL informal cocktail type reception after the ceremony, then a couple of weeks after, have a big reception in Nashville. 


    I am on a limited budget so I dont want anything TOO fancy, but still nice :)


    thanks for any info ya'll can help me with!

        I'm pretty sure there is a thread somewhere on here for St. John brides.  Try searching St. John or USVI and see what comes up.
