I agree with this!

Hi St Thomas brides

My names Beth and my FI and I will be married on July 3 2010 at Magens Bay at 9 in the morning. We just booked our WC today... went with Weddings the Island Way. I'm very excited and can't wait to get advice on the planning. I was originally hoping to do a catered brunch with eggs french toast and pancakes at one of the pavillions there but have now found out that Magens does exclusive catering (meaning they will not allow any outside caterers) and they don't really a brunch menu. The catering guy assured me that they can make pancakes etc but I would have to just get them from the concession stand they have there, not their catering department...which doesn't sound like it would be the best quality breakfast food. So, I'm now wondering about a restaurant that may do a catered brunch on a Saturday at 1030 or 11 am. Either that or waiting till 11 am at Magens and get their lunch catering (which would be something like hamburgers, dogs, and bbq chicken with potatoe salad and rice and beans). But if we get married at 9, pictures will probably be done by 10 and then we would have to wait about an hour for lunch, which I know people could swim and stuff but would it be weird to do the reception after some people have already got in their suits and everything? Any thoughts gals? Has anyone had breakfast at Magens or the catered Lunch there? Has anyone had a brunch receptions somewhere else on the island? Thanks for any ideas.

shakeimap,

Thank you very much for clarifying that Weddings the Island Way is NOT the wedding coordinator who responded to you like that. What they said to you is very unprofessional. I hope that everything works out for you.

 

BethGrubb, My suggestion is to have your wc set this up for you! Happy Planning and Congrats!

BethGrubb,

Congratulations on your wedding. How many guests are you planning on having?

 

I was looking at the Wedding The Island Way's website and I have a few questions, but wasn't sure about hours when someone could be reached. It's just hard for me to call during your regular 8am to 5pm CST since I am working.

 

I might needs to just send an email with some of my questions.

Hey girls!

 

I need help! A few of you have talked about Blue Glass Photography in past posts, and I am going to be using them for my wedding this December. I believe that some of you had negative experiences with some photographers while some had great experiences with others. Can you please post which are good/bad, so that I can request from my wedding coordinator?

 

Thank you!

Amie

Hello St Thomas brides,

 

My name is Tamika and my FI name is Steve

I was born and raised in Miami, Florida

I plan on having my wedding at Magen's Beach on August 14, 2010. The date is not set yet.

I am already a little overwhelmed so finding this site is a blessing.

I haven't chosen a WC as of yet but I am looking at Angela and Weddings the Island Way.

So far 75 people have expressed that they would like to come but I'm hoping it will not be more than 50 people (my family is huge.)

Tiffanyan02,

 

I am actually working with a planner here who is helping me with things as well. I am giving my guests the choice of AI or not as some people are familiar with the island and some are not. I plan to have about 50-75 guests and we are planning on having a travel agent organize everything as well as have a reception on the property. We were looking at the Mahogany Room.

Westtxgrly,

 

I am using their vendor for the florist only. They stated that you can not use vendors from STT who are not on their approved list. I plan on bringing my own photographer because he is amazing and they said that was fine.

Sorry for the confusion. And thank you for your best wishes. I feel good that I'm back on track now that I am working with Leslie Dawson. She has been amazing so far and I've received great references from her past clients on her work.

AND AGAIN FOR THE RECORD WEDDINGS THE ISLAND WAY WAS NOT MY PREVIOUS WC...LOL.

    • 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?
