September 2015 Wedding Advice!

Hi all! I know this topic has been addressed a couple of times before, but I dont see anything since 2012.

We're planning to get married in September/October 2015 and I need lots of advice. We're expecting about 30 people to attend. I'm from Barbados but haven't lived there in over 10 years. I currently live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Does anyone have suggestions for

-Wedding Planners?

-Venues? This is MAJOR! There are sooo many beautiful properties,. I'd like to have a location where the beach is visible but not a ceremony on the beach. I'm looking primarily for either Christ Church or St James area.

-Good makeup artists?

-Photographers?

-Florist?

Any input at all would be appreciated!

Hi, I can't help you with wedding plans, but the above link takes you to many threads on this forum about weddings, planners, etc. the first one being in July 2014. Your research will require a bit of reading, but there is a lot of information on this forum.

Good luck with your plans.

I have watched several lovely weddings arranged by Little Arches Hotel in Christ Church. They are typically on the grassy area across the road from Little Arches, overlooking the ocean. I'm sure if you worked with Emma, at Little Arches, she could handle everything for you.

Tamarind Hotel on West Coast has a spacious lawn/garden area over looking the beach, which would be a lovely setting for a wedding. Romantic beach front dining. Great staff and hotel.

Thanks so much for the suggestions this far, I decided to work with destinationweddings.com so Im going to see what they come up with in terms of resorts for venues.

These resorts are so gorgeous, but I must admit, i do feel bad that the room rates are so high for my guests...

I was in a party of 3 couples who stayed at Villa 201 in May and we had a fab time there. A superb villa and setting. Sonya, the cook/housekeeper looked after us so well. The manicured garden with its lovely swimming pools and beach just in front would be a great setting for photos.
