Additional Answers & Advice:  

1. Hire a professional wedding coordinator. Planning a wedding is difficult enough, but compounded by distance and “island time” - it’s enough to ruin anyone’s day. Having a professional on your side to deal with your local vendors will make things run smoothly and easily. 2. Wear a bathing suit that matches the neckline of your wedding gown. And pass this tip on to mom’s and bridesmaids. I remove a lot of odd tan lines on women, which can incur an additional artwork fee. 3. SPF 30 is a must! The Caribbean sun is very strong and can sneak up on you, especially if you don’t have any tan to start. Burnt skin just isn’t pretty in your wedding photography. You can get as much sun as you can after your wedding day, but be cautious beforehand. 4. Bug spray is also mandatory. Our biting insects down here are vicious and the prey on fresh tourist blood. ;) They will drive you and your guests crazy. Not to mention leave little red welts all over your body which is just as bad as a sunburn in your photography. My favorite is Deep Woods Off - sorry if you’re not in to Deet, but it’s the only thing that works. 5. When choosing your date, be aware of our peak season as well as hurricane season. The most expensive time to come to the islands is from December through April. Of course, that is also the nicest time of year, with afternoon temperatures barely past 80 degrees and evening temperatures comfortably in the 70s. Hurricane season is from June through November, the worst month being September, historically. The the VI has had hurricanes in August, October and November. That is our rainy season, too. 6. Check the time of sunset for your wedding date. The sun sets very quickly so close to the equator. If you’re planning a sunset wedding, check what time sunset actually is then have your ceremony at least an hour, if not 90 minutes, before that to allow time for formal photography afterward. Sunset can be anywhere from 5:40 AST in December to 7PM AST at the end of June and beginning of July. 7. And don’t forget we’re on Atlantic Standard Time. We don’t observe Daylight Savings, so we are one hour ahead of Eastern Standard Time in the winter but the same as EST during the spring and summer. This little wrinkle can cause confusion with travel from the mainland. 8. Getting a marriage license is easy, but make sure you know the protocol. Proper attire is required - you must cover your shoulders in the court house when applying for your license. 9. Don’t sweat the small stuff. That’s why you’re coming to the islands for your wedding - to relax and have fun. If you flowers aren’t exactly what you were expecting, or the cake doesn’t look exactly like the picture you emailed the baker, you will still have a wonderful destination wedding. And don’t foget . . . you’ll have lots of great photography to remember your day!
