St. Thomas ceremony location and resorts

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

So we are trying to decide a few things about our wedding in St. Thomas.  First, which resort to stay at.  We want to stay at an all-inclusive resort, and I think we're leaning toward Bolongo Bay, but I would love to hear where you guys stayed, and how you liked it.

 

Also, we know we want a beach wedding, but can't decide on a beach!  In pictures, they all look so beautiful.  Im curious, do you know if beach weddings are private or are there random people walking by during your ceremony?  Hopefully, you can share where you had your ceremonies/receptions.  It would help so much!!  Thank you!

Hi Dominique-

 

I am looking at a St. Thomas wedding too. I have heard good things about Lindquist & Lime Tree Beach. While Megan's Bay is nice, since it is a popular public beach - I have heard it can get quite crowded by the afternoon.

 

As far as resorts, I've heard good things about the Marriott Frenchman's Cove and Bolongo Bay.When in doubt, Tripadvisor has good reviews of people who have actually stayed there. 

 

Good luck in your planning!!

I'm getting married at Sugar Bay Resort in May 2013. We chose Sugar Bay(all inclusive) over bolongo because it has more choices in restaurants and there is a spa there.  We will get married right on the beach of the hotel and plan on doing a sunset catamaran cruise for our reception.  The resort has wedding packages so everything is included and you can upgrade things as you want.  I like that I will be working with the resort wedding coordinator and not all the vendors.  Makes it easier for me.

Good luck with your planning!

Hi! I would like to hear about your sunset catamaran reception. Which company did you go through? Was it a hit? Do you have any pics you can share? 

 

We will staying at Marriott Frenchmans Reef and getting married in St John on Trunk Bay, but we are still deciding on a reception location.

    • 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.
