vacation rentals, ranging from resorts to humble dwellings, you will be spoiled for choice when
planning where to spend your wedding or honeymoon.
Here we give you some tips on what to do, where to stay and how to plan your special day.
1. Make sure you are fully prepared for the island weather:
St. John usvi is an island in the Caribbean, so it's subject to tropical storms and hurricanes.
These storms can cause power outages and flooding, which can make your special day go
haywire if you are not prepared.
2. Choose a location with multiple venues:
Many locations on St. John usvi have multiple venues, so you can choose the one that fits your
theme best (or just whichever one sounds fun!).
3. Get ideas from other couples:
You might not be able to use their exact decorations or themes because of their personal style,
but looking at other couple’s weddings will give you some great ideas.
4. Research local businesses:
There are plenty of local businesses on St John that offer event
planning services; make sure you know who they are and what they offer before booking
5. Get creative with your ceremony location!
You don’t have to get married in a church—you can get married on the beach, or at an
abandoned sugar mill or plantation house. Just make sure that whatever location you choose
has the appropriate permits for your ceremony and reception.
5. Don’t forget about the food!
Make sure that you order enough food so that guests won’t go hungry during the reception
hours (and don’t forget appetizers).
6. Consider hiring live music for both before and after the ceremony—it’s a great way for guests
to relax before heading into the reception hall, and it’ll keep them entertained
Hopefully, we’ve convinced you that St. John is a great choice for your wedding or honeymoon.
Whether you’re thinking about booking a package or just using one of the many resources we
mentioned above, it’s worth at least considering this island paradise for your nuptials. We think
