Caribbean Wedding-St. Thomas

Recommended Posts

Thank you! We're starting to look into the package the cruise provides, but will definitely also look into WCs outside :)

We're getting A LOT more for our money by going with Janelle, especially since we have about 22 people joining us! Plus Janelle is 4000x more responsive than the cruise wedding people, who have some of the worst reputations i've ever seen for responsiveness and having their sh!t together. Just my opinion about what I did to keep my sanity through this :-)

Janelle originally went on my list of three planners to contact. One didn't respond, one basically told me I was too early and to call her in a few months, and Janelle was the sweetest, most responsive, most polite person to whom I spoke.

 

Throughout this process, she has been amazing to work with. If I send her a list of questions, she sends the list back with her answers in a different color underneath. No matter how trivial my question, she responds with thorough and clear answers, giving me all my options, and she doesn't work on "island time," the eternal excuse for delayed responses. I always recieve an answer to emails within 48 hours, unless there's a storm or a trip to the mainland, which she posts in advance on her facebook page.

That's great to hear. As of now, I've narrowed down to comparing Island Bliss w/ Janelle and Perfect Weddings and I'm working w/ Celeste there.  Currently though, I feel like Janelle has a more "genuine" feel in regards to fees and payments and she doesn't so "businessy" and make it more of a personal connection. But I have yet to compare both along w/ the cruise line pros and cons. I'll keep you updated as well Beachbunnybride! :)

Sorry, I haven't been on here in a while. But as Erica stated, her email response time is quick and not only is she very helpful, but she's also knowledgeable with little details or questions you may have. I've asked millions of questions it seems, but she's answered every single one of them. :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
