       I found my perfect dress in the destination collection for maggie sottero (rd1044) - she is fabulous!  perfect beach dresses...in case you are still looking!  Have any of you sent out save the dates?  i have designed a boarding pass one, but thought id ask what other ideas you may have...:-)


      omg!! this is the dress I want too, I did not get into shopping dress phase, but it is the one I want to try first. How did you like a fit? Also I was trying to find a price for it and cant seem to find it anywhere. How much did you pay?(If you dont mind me asking)

      I am thinking about getting married in St. Thomas as well.

        ya, this was the first dress I tried on...and the last!  I dound it when I started looking online and made an appt to try it on locally.  it fits amazing...well they pinned it for me since it was too big in the store, but it is gorgeous in person!  it is around $800-850 for the real designer dress.  They make a lot of cheap 'fake' ones online, so be careful of that!  If you go through a local bridal store or the actual Maggie Sottero website, that is probably the best bet - but they are taking up to 6months to get in - so plan for that!  Go for St. Thomas...it is so gorgeous and still the US so no passports are necessary!

          Awesome, thanks a lot for the info. I think once I figure where and when we will get married. (Not that easy when my fiance is in Military with crazy schedule. So hard to plan, when you dont know where he will be at that time in the future.) I am going to go dress shopping. I already found a store. I am Canadian, but I sitll think we should not have to many issues getting married there.

             I am so excited to try this dress. I had a question. Are you planning to get off the cruise in your dress? Or how would you do it? Because we would need to go to the court to get our papers too. I was just wondering what other people think about that.

              We are getting married at Lime Tree Beach, and Janelle (from Island Bliss) told me there are facilities there to get changed into your dress, but nothing elaborate.  That is fine by me!  I was not crazy about wearing my dress off the ship and then to the court house, and finally to the beach.  The facilities will work for me!  Maybe you should check where you are getting married to see if there are facilities that you can change into your dress.

                sorry it has taken so long to get back to you!  we are going through perfect weddings of st thomas and they have a package where they pick you up in the morning to bring you to courthouse (bride and groom) then we will go back to the ship and change...i will arrive to limetree beach with my bridesmaids after everyone else gets transported over.  if you are interested...i am working with celestina and the web site is www.perfectweddingsofstthomas.com and she has been fabulous! always responds within a couple hours and she will give you her direct cell# so she will answer you calls even on weekends or at home with her family.  otherwise it just depends on if the place you are getting married has a changing facility...i know emerald beach rents a bridal room for $90 in their hotel...but let me know if you have any other questions :-)

                  @Linzbrea425 , we chose to do a very informal, relaxing and not so expensive island lunch since we are having a formal dinner on the ship that night. Janelle from Island Bliss recommended WiKKED it is located right by the ship dock. The coordinator has been really great at the restaurant. Since the cake comes with our wedding ceremony package they will allow it to be delivered and served at the restaurant. They also have a really flexible menu and many options for purchasing alcohol packages too. I was very pleased with the price per person and they even offered ideas as to how we could lower the cost per person if we wanted to. Hope that helps!

                  We are doing a cruise wedding too and have decided to go with Janelle from Island Bliss. Haven't worked out any details yet. Will probably get married on Lindquist Beach even though there are no changing facilities I just love that beach, looks so georgeous.

                    Hey ladies! I'm new here but I stumbled on this thread. I will also be getting married in St. Thomas on 3-12-12 on Lindquist Beach and I'm also using Janelle with Island Bliss! I can't believe it's already January. March will be here before we know it!!
