I need help deciding on a honeymoon/wedding Location

Jump to last reply

I really would like to honeymoon/wed at a nice resort in the Caribbean but I am having a hard time picking the Island. I am driving myself crazy trying to make a decision. I really want to go to a place by word of mouth, not by resort brochures because we all know how that can be. I have been doing extensive research via the Internet and have finally started to narrow down the choices. Unfortunately, every time I start to make a decision, some comment or information I find makes me change my mind. As of now, my choices are USVI, St. Lucia, and Grenada. Night life is not necessary but TV is a must per my fiancé. I am looking for more of a main stream resort. I don't know how much of the local customs we will actually get to see. I hope we will get out some, but if we don't, I want the resort to have enough to keep us busy. It will be a very small wedding (me and the groom). I want to be able to snorkel, swim and do all the cool beach stuff. I am interested in 24 hour room service. We want to be pampered! I definitely don't want to go somewhere that has an extreme amount of crime.

I like the big resorts that St. Thomas has to offer, but it seems so crowded there. St. John seems quiet and beautiful, but not allot of choices for accommodations. St. Croix, I have found a few resorts, but don't have much info on them. I am interested in more information on the Buccaneer in ST. Croix. St. Lucia seems nice, but it is so hard to get to the nice resorts and I have heard the beaches are nicer in the USVI. My other choice, Grenada, has a few nice resorts, but I keep hearing allot of negative talk about Natives and public beaches with rude vendors. I am looking for people with experiences getting married and honeymooning in these places. First hand advice is what I am looking for. Has anyone been to any of these places that can offer me some information! Any help is much appreciated. Sorry for the long post, but I am looking for specifics! Thanks
