wedding help
      #1717043 - 12/27/16 10:22 AM (50.255.146.249)

Hello-

My fiance and I are planning on getting married this August, we stay at Royal Islander. There will probably be 20-30 people joining us, so I will need to find rooms, etc.

Does anyone know of a wedding planner that could help us assist in ensuring everything goes smooth.

good morning. i had my 25th wedding renewal of our vows in july. i spoke to many wedding planners and ended up with

Maressia Baily-Mohamed, Artemia Event Planners, Sint Maarten Mary –Me.

They went out of there way for my perfect ceremony on the beach. they didn't charge so much as the others and i probably got just as much if not the same. Asking around the others didn't have as great of a reputations as they did. I couldn't have been happier! Met them the morning before to go over all the details. One of the girls actually took my phone to video the ceremony for me. Wonderful company and people!!! Good luck

We had a friend get married in SXM, though they legitimately got married in the states afterwards. But as far as rooms, they rented several houses for all their guests. I think you could get some great rates for an August wedding. You could have the wedding at one of the houses you rent, possibly. Our friend's family would love to go back and re-do the event it was so much fun. Best of luck to you and your planning.

Many villa rental companies have rules prohibiting parties/weddings/etc. on their property. I'm not sure I understand exactly what the issues are, but I guess it has to do with damage from drunken guests, noise, etc. Before planning a wedding at a rental villa, you need to check with the company.

That is true, Carol. She was inquiring at all the houses she rented if they allowed marriage ceremonies there, and she got more than one "NO". But she did get married on the pool deck of one of the houses that did approve it. She hired catering company, photographers, and videographers. Family flown in from all over, it was quite the event.

I recently spent three weeks in a condo at Blue Marine in Maho, where all the units are individually owned. Several of them are available through VRBO. Blue Marine has a huge pool and lovely grounds. Whether or not a wedding would be allowed on the grounds, I don't know. However, this is the contact information for the manager of the C Building, who likely could answer your questions: Marianne Finney, dreamhomesbymarianne@msn.com.

Hi,
My sons wedding was in 2011. We blocked rooms at the Flamingo thru Diamond Resorts for $99.00 per night. We had like 20 rooms. He did not use a wedding planner. Good luck on your upcoming wedding.

It was beautiful but so expensive for what he had. We did my daughters wedding in NY and had so much more for the money. The venue was on the water.

Happy Holidays Carol. To clarify, there are plenty of villas that will allow a wedding and special event. They are quite popular since they are the ideal destination wedding venue. Spacious, large, private and can handle up to 150 guests.
St Martin is becoming increasing popular as a destination wedding spot.
Personally, we have about 35 villas in Terres Basses that will allow an event.

Happy new year.
Rob

That's good to know, that there are a lot that do allow it. I know that there are some that do not allow it, so it is a good thing to make sure your villa rental agent, like you, knows that requirement up front.

My son and his wife were married in St.Maartin several years ago and used a wedding planner that was very helpful. Marry-me.com
