    The grassy area is next to the restaurant and bar, but it is a very quiet one. Very few people go there. The bar does not typically have anyone sitting around it at sunset, but is used to make drinks for the one or two tables that might have diners at that time. That end of the beach is not where any beachgoers sit. It will be very quiet, especially in October, which is low season. The pool is a distance away from the grassy wedding area, as are all resort rooms. The grassy wedding area is pretty, with lots of shady palms.

              I have been online researching resorts .We were originally thinking going with an all-inclusive resort but I can’t really decide among them.
              These past few months have been a little rocky financially and now I’m not sure if I’ll be able to plan a trip to St. Thomas this year. So I would be grateful for any first handed advice or thoughts.

                I feel kind of silly and have to apologize b/c I'm still new to this forum. I went back through and re-read from the beginning of the posts and got my answers to my last post.

                I do have to say that I did contact Bolongo Bay Beach Resort and after talking to my FI he agrees its sounds like what we had in mind. But I do wonder if a villa would be the way to go. I think we are still planning on inviting the same amount of guests to the DW as we originally had plan for a local wedding but I would guess maybe 20-30 ppl will go. But who knows, I may have my head in the clouds, lol

                  I, too, am probably going to be a St. Thomas bride. My fiancee and I have decided to wait until early 2011 to get married so we can save money before the big day! We are thinking about we'll have about 50-60 guests. We'd like a simple beach ceremony and then a typical reception hopefully on a beach area or poolside. I guess I'm just trying to decide to do it on a public beach and hire a wedding coordinator or do the whole thing at a resort, such as the Marriott. I know we are still 2 years a way, but I'm so excited to start working on small crafty details such as save the dates, etc. that I want to at least get date and location settled :) Am I way too early? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
