Wedding/Honeymoon

We'd like to get married in the Caribbean, and stay for a week or so for the honeymoon. There is so much info, I'm getting overwhelmed. Does anyone have a recommendation for a great all-inclusive resort? I kind of favour the Virgin Islands, but any help is much appreciated.

on st. thomas the only true ai is wyndham sugar bay resort. bolongo bay and the marriot frenchman's reef & morning star resort offer an ai option. i have been to a wedding at sugar bay and it was lovely and all details were nicely attended to.
i don't know of any ai's on st. croix or st. john.

the vast majority of ai's are on the maya riveria coast south of cancun, dominican republic or jamaica.
the same couple who married at sugar bay honeymooned at couples swept away on jamaica. they totally loved it.
however to give you any really helpful advice you need to tell us your personal budget and an idea how much your guests can spend, (unless you're treating) how many guests, what you and guests want to do while on island, and time of year can be relevent.

it is not necessary for you to go to an ai to get a great wedding. almost all resorts have a planner available these days.

you may wish to consider honeymooning at a different resort than the wedding. otherwise you may find yourselves running into his cousin or your grandmother when you want to be romantic.
in particular what to you & intended want to do on your honeymoon. different islands offer different experiences.

Thanks so much for your advice. I'm not worried about the budget and there are also no guests. My parents will stay for a couple days, and then leave us alone!

I will definitely check out the Sugar Bay resort. Thank you.

Idratherbeparisian,
Of all the places Iíve been in the islands, if I was to do a destination wedding I would pick Stonefield Resort in St. Lucia. The backdrop of the Pitet Piton with the sunset is amazing. Check out stonefieldvillas.com, and the link to my pix is below. You rent private villas with private plunge pools, but theyíre all part of the resort that has a main restaurant. Itís by no way like a Sandals, so if thatís what youíre looking for then this isnít for you. But if you like low key, raw pristine beauty, then this is perfect They also have different packages you can do that include food/activities/etc. Itís nestled into the mountain, but you can take a short free cab ride that the resort offers next door to Jalousie, which has a gorgeous beach. Congrats, and good luck!

if budget is not an issue you should look at http://www.caneelbay.com/ on st. john, which does have ai packages available. this is a gorgeous resort with 7 beaches on its property.
of course kellybeaches pictures make st. lucia look very very nice.
those sunsets are to die for.
