St Thomas bride update....ROLL CALL

Recommended Posts

Ashley,

 

Just so you know, the Tuesday party begins at noon and ends at 3 or so. It's not a HUGE party, either, especially in November, which is still low season. There's usually some steel pan music and a grill cooking back off the beach. Some people will be on the beach, but most hang around the pool and pool bar. I know this because I stay at the resort on Limetree Beach every August.

 

Ask your coordinator about Lundqvist (Smith Bay Park) also. It's a beautiful stretch of beach that is not overly crowded. Brewer's Bay is nice, but right across the bay is the airport, and I'd be afraid of a jet taking off just as I was about to speak my vows. Your coordinator will know best.

 

Where will you be staying on island?

 

I'm not sure what we will be doing. Our wedding isn't until August, 2010, so a lot of it is up in the air. When I go back this August I'll probably have a better idea, make some contacts, etc. I'm not, at this point, using a planner. That may be the biggest mistake of my life, though. Sherri, don't go too far away.

 

Sherri, as I mentioned, I'll be back in August. Looking forward to a bushwhacker with you, too. It would be nice to have a chat.

 

Wedding reviews can be found on this thread: Wedding Reviews - Best Destination Wedding Forum I haven't checked to see if there are any St. Thomas reviews, though.

 

Seasons Greetings to all as well.

Hey Petunia

She did mention Lindquist as well but we haven't really made a decision. ut U'm thinking that Brewer's may not be the best idea. If you had to pick any beach there that offers a quiet laid back atmosphere with shaded areas which would you choose? I have decided no for St Peter's. We will be cruising to the island so i won't be staying anywhere lol. I was gonna book a hotel room but my wc says that bc of the late check in times it would almost be pointless. So I'll unfortunately just have to get dressed on the ship. I really didn't want to do that but oh well lol,

Ashley,

 

If you weren't expecting a relatively large group I'd suggest going to St. John for some spectacular beaches. However, I think if I were you I'd go to either Lindqvist or the far left side (facing the water) of Magen's Bay. Here is a pretty good guide of the beaches on St. Thomas, including some pictures. If you read this you will have some idea of what your wc is suggesting. Let us know what you decide.

Ashley, I'm glad you have made your decision. Lindqvist is lovely and I'm sure you will be very happy with it. I hope you'll stick around and show us pictures after you've returned.

 

Sherri, is it possible for you to post some pictures of weddings you've done at different beaches? There are never any St. Thomas wedding pictures posted on these forums.

I'll defintely show you pics after the wedding. Also if you go to my wc's site there are numerous pics of st thomas weddings it's Island Bliss Weddings. I'm sure if you research other wc's they''ll have pics as well. I only know this because when I was trying to find a wc I looked at the pics on the different wc's sites lol. Good Luck.

We got married on December 9th at Lindquist and it was AMAZING. We were the only people on the beach. It was beautiful and Janelle & Ashley (my photographer) did a great job. If anyone wants pictures you can email me -- ashleycharee @ gmail . com. When I have more time I'll post a full vendor review but everyone I worked with was great!

We were married on Lindquist Beach on November 5th 08...it was PERFECT!! Only a few local people on the beach but nobody got in our way at all.

 

We also worked with Janelle from Island Bliss Weddings - she was amazing & was always quick to reply & sooth my stress (including the night before the wedding when- in a panic -we realised there was a time difference between our cruise ship & island time!).

 

Her doll of a husband Stuart married us & really knew how to make the ceremony personal as well as humorous.

 

Ej Johnson from Paradise Pictures was the absolute BEST to work with - everyone who has seen our pictures (inlcuding our TTD) is blown away by his work.

 

Let me know if you would like to see some pics & I can email you some - I'm not sure how to post them here. You can also check out St. Thomas, St. John, Virgin Islands, Caribbean Wedding Photography by photographer Eric Johnson , if you select Weddings under the 'looking for your event?' section...we are the Gauthier Belanger Wedding.

 

Hope this helps!
