Hi and welcome! I am getting married at Sandals Grande St. Lucian in July. We have several guests sharing rooms, and it has not really been a problem. I wouldn't worry about that aspect...
If price is a factor though, you may want to look elsewhere. Many of my guests thought they would be able to go, but when the actual cost was figured, they couldn't afford it. I like Sandals in St. Lucia, because you can choose between the three resorts, but most wanted to stay where the wedding would take place, and that is the most expensive resort. The flights are also very expensive compared to other islands. I don't know though... if you're looking at November, the prices might be cheaper because of hurricane season.
All that said, I am really looking forward to my wedding, and I know St. Lucia is one of the most beautiful and adventurous islands...it will be perfect. I just wish I could have more guests come with me! My awesome TA did offer me a piece of advice when I was planning....she said often she has brides plan for huge destination weddings, and then they are disappointed when not many guests can come. She said to plan the wedding as if the bride and groom might be the only ones there....so that's what we did! Good luck!

Possible (hopeful) wedding location Sandals Grande St. Lucian
Having guests come to Sandals St. Lucia for my wedding in (hopefully November 2011)...I have learned they only have king beds. Some of my friends and his friends are single and I suppose would have to shack up with someone they may or may not know. I haven't told anyone yet as we are deciding between St Lucia and Cuba...but I was wondering what everyone else has done in this situation.
Many thanks for your opinions and advice
