St Thomas May 2013!!

Recommended Posts

        Hi Ladies,...Just wanted to introduce myself,...been lurking and surfing some of the great info on this site!! My names Jackie my fiance and I have decided to "make it legal" after 10 years and get married.

We took a cruise approx 5 years ago and loved it, so the plan was hatched to cruise Eastern Caribbean and be married on St Thomas after I fell in love with some wedding photos I came across of another cruise wedding. After lots and I mean LOTS of hashing out of dates and "discussions" with family,...we have settled on a cruise leaving Miami on May 5 2013 and getting married on St Thomas May 8 2013.

 

Hope to find some other brides maybe doing the same thing and we can bounce ideas!!

 

Take care and Happy Planning!

Hi Jackie!

 

My name is also Jackie and we're doing the same thing, cruising the Eastern Caribbean and getting married in St. Thomas.  Are you using Island Bliss weddings for your on-island wedding planner?  I would love to hear about your plans and bounce some ideas off of you.  Congratulations on your engagement!

Hi congrats!!! My fiancé and I planning a June 21st wedding in St Thomas in 2014. I can't wait to read your updates. Are you going thru the cruise line or did you hire a coordinator in St Thomas?? It's so hard to plan something in a place I have never been.

Congratulations to all of you. 

 

I'm sure this journey can be scary planning a wedding to a place you may have only visited once. We have some suggestions of great beaches to get married on, on this page: http://blueskyceremony.com/st-thomas-wedding-locations/

 

Hope it helps and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. 

 

Much love and many beautiful wedding wishes,

Amber Ambrose Motylinski

Yes we're using Janelle from Island Bliss and she has been absolutely fantastic,Responds to emails so quickly and full of helpfull advice,...did I mention patience of a saint?LOL

Carnival Glory out of Miami is the plan. Booked at Villa Botanica, which I can't wait to see!

The ship doesnt dock til 11 so I'm hoping to be able to get hair and makeup on the ship before we port. Anyone had experience with this??

Anyone have any ideas on dress travel?

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
