Newbie! 2014 Anguilla wedding

Recommended Posts

Hi! Newbie over here! I got engaged in St. Martin this past March and I'm now planning my wedding for 2014. My fiancé and I want to get married in Anguilla and so far the planning is stressing me out! If there are any other brides here planning an Anguilla wedding or a wedding at a destination that doesn't offer all inclusive resorts I would love to hear about your experience.

Ah Bigcitybride, my sister is having her destination wedding at the Viceroy Anguilla in July 2015!!!  They are going down July of 2014 to book the rooms, plan the menus, events, etc. & put down the deposit, but they have already been in touch with the wedding coordinator at the hotel, the photographer they are using & their florist.  She's a little crazy about planning, but they're giving their guests a welcome/rehearsal dinner at Picante, which is a great mexican restaurant on the island.  Then they're doing ceremony on sunset deck, cocktail hour around one of the pools & reception at Coba.  They are then treating their guests to the breakfast buffet the next morning.  Half of their guests are staying in two villas including them, family, bridesmaids, groomsmen etc. and they are having the kitchens stocked so that there is always food available.  I know some people hire private chefs though, but that gets pricey FAST!  For the guests not staying in the villas, they are giving each one a $100 resort credit to help offset cost of food.

 

She is using Derrys Richardson for photography, his work is beautiful & prices are very reasonable, susan Croft is wonderful as well.  She is also going to use Black Orchid Florists for flowers & lighting, but has spoken to Couture Concepts about a few things as well.

 

Anguilla is absolutely stunning & if you do go with it, I am sure you are going to have the most beautiful wedding!

Hi, I got married in Anguilla in 2011. I used Black Orchid Florists and they were INCREDIBLE! Literally, they handled everything for me! My photographer was Susan Croft from Susan Croft Photography and she was worth every single penny. We look at our amazing wedding photos every single day! I had my reception at DaVida in Crocus Bay, ceremony at Bethel Methodist Church and welcome dinner at Picante. Feel free to ask me any questions!

    • 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?
