US Virgin Islands – Weddings

Have you thought about a tropical location for a wedding, but are worried that exotic may not work for your guests.  They like hotels they know the name of and what to expect inside, they like being able to order food in English and know what they are going to be getting and eating, and they like feeling safe.  Well …. the US Virgin Islands may be the place for your intimate or large wedding celebration.

Easy to get to from anywhere and easy to travel inbetween if needed.  I happen to have visited each of the three islands several times, with the last trip to all three at once this past summer.  St Thomas, St John and St Croix.  All different which means there is something for everyone.  Take the Marriott complex in St Thomas, not far from town and there are three properties that have a shuttle service inbetween them, a vacation club (so you can have up to 8 in a unit with full kitchen facilities for those that want to save money or just be together), to the Reef on the hill with great views looking down the harbor to the town, to the Morningstar Resort that has a more quiet/tropical feel for those that want to be out of the hub bub but visit the hub bub when they want, then retreat easily.  You could get married at any one of the three, have your after celebration at a different one of the three, and then people go back to wherever they are staying of the three, or even elsewhere.  Perfect for all.

For a destination like this, you could have St Thomas as the key place, but charter a yacht and do a day trip for just your group over to St John, or even a jeep convoy trip around the island with a stop in Megan’s Bay, one of the top beaches in the world. 

St Croix may be where you go after leaving everyone else behind.  It’s a seaplane/plane flight to get there, so that may hinder some folks and keep them from following you, but here you have a nice mix of smaller town feel from  St Thomas, and then head to a resort where you have rainforest all the way down to the buildings you are staying in, with beach and ocean infront, very unique.  Some really nice accommodation options in St Croix depending on what you are wanting to do, where you want to be, and whether it is just the two of you or a whole group.

As I know these islands and area well (you can even take a boat over to the British Virgin islands which I love also and can help you with planning a wedding at any of those islands), this can be a nice easy process for you and you will never be wondering what it is like, is it what the pictures on the internet show etc.

Let’s do it

Till next time
