I'm new to the site but I gotta say I really love it so far, what a great community!! My fiance and I are in the very beginning stages of planning and are currently looking for the perfect location. Ideally we'd like to rent out a villa for our family and close friends to stay at instead of doing a resort wedding - this sure makes research difficult though, everything destination seems to be geared towards resorts! lol
We also really wanted to find something with a bit of European charm in the Caribbean, so far we've found two potential options:
1. Cloisters in Nassau, Bahamas. We LOVE this ceremony site and versailles inspired gardens but it sure comes with a price, and unfortunately we can't find a suitable villa in the area
2. La Sikwa Sugar Mill in St Lucia - Again beautiful gardens and ruins, but not much info about weddings there online so currently trying to get details.
If you gals have any suggestions I would love to hear them! Or just to say hi too! I'm so excited to find a venue!
