WEDDING BLISS

st-omerLooking for a great vacation getaway is one thing. Looking for a great vacation spot for a wedding of a lifetime is something else altogether. Make it easy on yourself and consider St. Lucia. Voted several times as "Caribbean Wedding Island of the Year" and "Honeymoon Island of the Year" by readers of the Caribbean World Magazine, St. Lucia is truly the idyllic spot for your wedding of a lifetime. Having made the decision to tie the knot here, there are many romantic locations that are available for your wedding. The traditional church wedding is always popular, however, there are a number of new spots that are emerging, sparking a different level of interest. Consider a waterfall or forest location; or even a theme wedding, with cuisine to match.

While many of our hotels on island offer wedding packages, our research reveals that Bay Gardens and Bay Gardens Inn, both situated in Rodney Bay, offer an intimate package to satisfy your needs. Now sometimes when there is choice, the decision becomes much harder, because each site has a little of the something you desire. We will not pin it down specifically for you, but we can suggest that you check out this short list.
