Jessica's St. Lucia Planning Thread, July 2011

Recommended Posts

Hi Jessica, thanks for the wedding wishes!  We are back, and everything was PERFECT.  You will not regret your decision to get married there.  We had a small group, and I finally adopted the attitude that people could come or not come...all that mattered was that my husband would be there.  Our closest family members and a couple of friends made the trip, and the size of the group really worked out. 

 

Good luck, and feel free to inbox me any questions!  I will post a review later, when I have my pictures.

This all sounds FABULOUS and very close to my ideal wedding. Would you be willing to share how much you ended up spending at Sandal's for the ceremony with extras and everything? I'm trying to get an idea of the realistic cost, because i realize the prices on their site don't cover everything you need. Please review the resort and wedding staff when you get back.

 

Also, how many people are you expecting? You can private message me if you don't want to share publicly and forgive me for asking such a personal question, but it's just that St. Lucia is super high on my list right now...

 

Thanks and I hope you have a wonderful time! :)

Welcome home Jessica!! So glad to hear that everything went perfectly!! And thanks,too, for the moral support. I came to the same conclusion as you as far as guests/family coming, I am just hoping that his family will stop torturing him so he can start to get excited the way I am. I am sure to him it seems easier for me to say, since my parents and best friend is already booked, but I am sure it will all fall into place along the way. But, enough about that.

So, I am so anxious to hear about your final choices!! What location did you choose? What reception options did you choose? How was the steel drum band? That's the way I am leaning,but would love to hear your feedback!! Any info, pictures, advice you can give would be SO appreciated!!! St Lucia brides are already fairly scarce, but you are the only other bride I have found that ultimately chose the Grande. I just think it looks perfect and am so excited not only to go, but also to hear about your experience there. Thanks again for all of your wonderful information!!!!
