Any other St John weddings?

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

I am new to the forum and getting some excellent ideas on here for my Aug 2011 St John wedding- thanks!

I would love to hear of anyone's experience with bringing their gown on a plane, a little worried about that one :)

Congrats!  Happy planning:)  I haven't gotten married yet but I know some relatives who had destination weddings and they said that it really depends on if there is room in a closet to hand the dress, and if not, they had to store it in the overhead bins.  Something to consider when choosing a dress!

Hi Kim,

 

Congratulations on your forthcoming wedding. Like you, I'm new to this site & have found loads of great information.

 

We're also getting married at St Johns - In August this year. Is your ceremony in a resort?

Hi Kim,

 

I've been looking into the idea of a 'Travel Box'.  They seem quite a good idea & you can take them on board as hand luggage. They come with layers of tissue paper etc.  Let me know if you want any further details.

Thanks Alex- I'll definitely have to look into the travel box!  Are you planning to use it for your dress?  Our wedding is also in August!  It is Saturday the 6th, how about yours??

Our ceremony will be up on Peace Hill and then we'll have transportation to take everyone back down to Cruz Bay for the reception at Ocean Grille (in Mongoose Junction).   Would love to hear your plans!

Hi Kim,

 

Good to hear from you. You're location looks absolutely fantastic.  Our wedding is August 4th so only a couple of days before you.  I can't wait but it still seems soooo long away.

 

Do you have many guests?  Our's is only small with 6 people including us!!

 

Thankfully the boxes are approved to be used as hand luggage so I can take my dress on board with me.  I'd be devastated if it got lost.  Have you got your dress yet?  I'm on my third choice now.  The first I got off Ebay which turned into a disaster.  Cheap material, wrong sizing etc.  The second I thought would be ideal for a beach wedding but then decided it didn't feel weddingy enough.  The third, is perfect & definitely 'The One'....Thankfully.

 

We've decided to go for the Martha Stewart wedding with Sandals, the Beautiful Beginnings package.  I thought it would be so stress free, but am finding it difficult being so far away & not being able to clarfiy many things until we actually arrive on 1st August.  I'm sure it'll turn out fine & I'm just worrying for no reason.   How are you finding your planning, have you organised much yet?  I'm looking for a photographer to take TTD pics.  We're not allowed to bring outside photographers onsite at Sandals & I'm not convinced as to the quality of the ones we have to use so thought it might be a good idea to go out & about in Antigua & get more pics, we didn't think it would be too much of a problem getting dressed up the next day & you can never have too many wedding pics right?

 

I'm so pleased to chat to someone who will be on the island the same time as us.  There doesn't seem to be many Antiguan Brides on here. 

 

Looking forward to hearing your plans.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
