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.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
