I hope you get some responses! We have considered the usvi as well and I’d love to hear from a bride that got married there! Our biggest question is where do you find a good travel agent to help with the guests planning… we are having a hard time finding a travel agent in the days of the internet they seem virtuatlly non existant!

I’m getting married in St. Thomas in October!  We didn’t use a travel agent, because like you, we have so few guests, it really didn’t seem like we needed one.  We did save our guests a lot by getting a block at our hotel.  They’re getting rooms that are $250/night right now for $114/night.  

We booked a package through Marriott Frenchman’s Reef, but I’ve heard really good things about Janelle at Island Bliss (http://www.islandblissweddings.com/) for a local planner if you plan on not getting a package at a hotel.

I’m using Sugar & Spice Artistry for makeup & hair.  Blue Glass Photography is the photographer that’s included in our package, & I like the work on their website, so I’m happy with that.  Though Elisha Orin has some amazing photography work as well.

@BeeG35:  I am getting married in St thomas in Octiber as well @ sugar bay resort and spa. It’s all inclusive but you also have the option to go the non-all inclusive route. We only have about 20 total going. I am doing a lot of DIY stuff and taking it with b/c the resort charges a FORTUNE for almost everything. I got one of sugar bays packages wihich had a photographer and video in their package but I did some research and found out that who they use Chic photo and bill payne video just seemed dated to me. After researching I booked photo on my own with blue glass photography….LOVE their work! I also booked High def VI for video! From what I have seem of High Def’s work it is AMAZING!

Good luck and happy planning!
