    Yeah, I have a few questions if you dont mind...As far as the Wyndham, can you find out about the beach..I heard it had a huge reef you had to cross to get into nice waters...and as far as the Marriott, are you heading to Frenchmans Reef on the hill or the one on the beach..if the one on the beach, Im just curious if the rooms are musty and old...

    sorry, Im heading down there in April, but I wont be able to meet with Angela as she will be on vacation when I go there but Ill meet with her mother instead. are you meeting with the photographer and flower people too?

    Keep us updated

      I just stayed at the Marriott in late October and stayed in the rooms in the MorningStar section which is right on the beach. Our room was beautiful and was not musty or old at all. Hope that helps from someone who just stayed there a couple months ago!

        So who is this popular Angela chic? No I don't have a wedding coordinator at this time. I am trying to save money. But, if it is reasonable maybe I would look into it!

        So LadyP where is your reception? I am going to be meeting with the BC from the Whyndham Sugar Bay and the Frenchmans Marriott. Then we are going on an excursion to Megan's bay. So I am going to try and pack in as many photo's and info as possible in 7 hours! Agh!

        I guess I am going to have to learn how to get pictures on this site! :)

          ok so I just checked Angela out on the web site... I guess it raised some quesitons for me.. do most people have a ceremony and an actual reception with a meal for the guests? Or forgo a reception alltogether? We are attempting to keep cost down and Im just concerned that if I get a Wc it will raise the cost.. But if she can set it all up and there is no real recpetion then I guess we can afford it... I am torn as to what the typical timeline / day looks like for a DW..

            My FH and I are also trying to keep cost down. I have yet to contact Angela or any other WC as I don't know the cost and am not sure if it worth it. I just want to stay somewhere where everyone is comfortable, where i can take beautiful pics of my big day etc. etc. I was also thinking of the Marriot so any pictures from there would be great. No pressure.
            Hoping my New Year's wish comes true.

                After looking at doing the wedding myself vs using a coordinator, I found out that it was cheaper to go with a coordinator. Then I looked around, and like LadyP said, Angela had everything...I wanted the arch, chairs, ailse decorations, music, video, photog..and she has all that.

                You can also customize your wedding as well, and she will work with you for what you want..you dont have to do one of her packages.

                Here is the link: pearl wedding, st thomas wedding, st thomas weddings, stthomas weddings, st thomas wedding packages, st thomas wedding sites

                Just email her, she will tell you the prices, I cant remember now what they were.

                She was the only coordinator that got back to me immediately.

                As for a reception, we actually want to do a sit down at a restaurant or facility but I havent looked into it that far yet...
                ....but if anyone has any ideas, would love to hear them.

                  S2BLennon, I think you can do whatever you want as far as a reception. I know you can have small finger foods to some huge bash if you want...there are no rules. I think if you want to keep costs down, maybe a hour'd orvers may be the way to go, or maybe just have some cake and punch/wine. Its your day, that is the beauty of it!!

                    I'm not looking at wedding coordinators for my own wedding yet, if at all, but I noticed a new posting by a wedding coordinator in St. Thomas on the Newbie thread. Her name's Sherri. You might want to send her a PM for some comparisons or perhaps different options. I know that different coordinators use different locations around the island as well for both ceremony and reception.

                      I didn't use Angela, but I did use a wedding coordinator. If you can afford it, I say try and get one. It was very helpful. I was going to school full time and working full time when I was planning my wedding. My WC made all the calls for me, got everything set up, distrubted the payments, etc. All I basically had to do was say "I want this, this and this."

                      Plus my WC was a sweetheart and I had non-WR questions about the island that she was able to answer and helped me locate a villa and helped me make maps, etc.

                      At the time I used her, her fee was only $175 and it was so worth every penny!
