      No coordinator. Doing it ourselves. I have a friend who'll do the ceremony, and we'll throw a party somewhere, perhaps Coral World.

If you want, I can send you some pictures of the beach, that may be easier to help make your decision.
          I would appreciate that so much!!! My email is goodtoglow @ gmail.com
          I wish that when we were in St Thomas in February we stopped by Lindquist so I could picture it. We were determined to go to Gibney Beach & Skinny Legs on St John instead!!!

            Has anyone seen Silk Cotton Villa? We are considering it as a reception venue and would be curious to know everyone's opinion. Thanks

                Leslie was my WC for my November 2009 wedding.  I'm not sure if you wedding has taken place yet, but you are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE her.  I actually hired her 2 months before my wedding after my first WC wasn't working out.  She is amazing and so professional and responsive.

                  I'm getting married in St. Thomas in November and am using a WC - Leslie Dawson. Found my florist through her and prices seem very reasonable. Good luck and let me know if I can be of any assistance. :)

                  Happy planning!

                    I just have to say that you did a fantastic job with all your wedding planning...your website was phenomenal and full of great info for all of your guests. I am looking at doing the same type of destination wedding like you. We estimate to have at least 20 guests joining us and cruising out of NY on the Carnival Miracle and marrying on St Thomas. We still haven't decided whether or not to use Carnival Wedding Coordinators or do like you did and book directly with the vendors on the island. May I ask, what was your deciding factor in doing it that way?


                    I was married in St. Thomas in November 2009.  I decided against using the Carnival planners because they told me that they couldn't give me details about my ceremony until 2 weeks before the wedding.  That was just too nerve wrecking for me.  I hired Leslie from Perfect Weddings.  She was actually my second choice after my first WC didn't work out.  Hiring Leslie was the best decision I made.  The woman is absolutely fabulous!!!!  The cruise lines will tell you that it's better to go with them if they have to re-route and don't go to St. Thomas but you can always book with them at the last minute if that happens and you can purchase insurance cover any loses with the other planner.
