@lucy29:  My hubby and I spent a day in St. Thomas! Gorgeous place! (though the driving was a bit confusing). Also, I know you said you want a smaller more intimate wedding, but there are alot of places in the Chicago suburbs that would be much cheaper than Chicago proper to host a wedding. I lived in Gurnee a few years ago, and they have alot of nice arboretums and things. You could even go an hour north to Kenosha, and things will be priced MUCH cheaper. Just a thought!

Congrats!  I got married in St. Thomas this past December.  We also got engaged in USVI (on St Thomas) and was running into a very similar problem as you because we both come from large families and would have ended up spending a fortune on a wedding we didnt really want.

My advice is to get a wedding planner from the USVI.  I used Janelle at Island Bliss and it was perfect and super easy.  She took care of everything and i didnt have to worry about alot of the details.  We ended up cruising to the island and getting married at Lindquist Beach while we were docked.  Feel free to message me with any questions!

@lucy29:  Welcome to the bee! I got married in St Thomas in October at Sugar Bar Resort and Spa! There were 25 of us in all……..lots of work planning a Destination Wedding but so worth it in the end!


If you get married in St Thomas Blue Glass Photography is amazing! Also High Def VI for video (hes pretty much the best on the island) and Sugar and Spice for hair and makeup……..they are all GREAT!


Good luck and happy wedding planning!
