    Hi,

     

    We have been looking at a few places, and trying to cover everything. We are on a budget. We have contacted a few places (Havana Blue, Bolongo) and got prices. We also liked Bluemoon Cafe, but they aren't sure they will still be operating there come next June.  We are likely going to have about 24 guests. Havana Blue and Bolongo seem to be priced about the same, but you get more food at Bolongo. Havana Blue is a much nicer place.  So we can decide between those two for now.  Each also has a 20% tax/service charge.

     

    Does anyone know if we could rent a smaller villa (maybe 2-4 bedrooms), and would allow us to have a party for 26 people there?  We could then cater in food and get our own drinks (Wines/Champagne seem to have a 2x markup at Havana and Bolongo).

     

    Thanks

      This is what we did for our wedding/reception in April 2010.  We rented a villa and stayed there for a week and they let us have our reception there.  The villa I rented (while I do NOT recommend it), I ended up negotiaoting with them to waive the $1000 fee they normally require for parties like that.  If you do decide to go this route I recommend using a wedding planner and I HIGHLY recommend using Passion Fruit Chefs.  The food was AMAZING.  Good luck!

        Not sure if you've booked a villa yet but my fiance and I just booked the Stardust Villa at Mahogany Run.  It is absolutely beautiful, will allow you to host an event, and is reasonably priced.  The website is www.stardustvilla.com

         

        Hope this is helpful to you.

          Thanks but the dates are booked for our wedding.  We are actually going down to St Thomas this week for a few days to check out a few things.
