Getting Married in the USVI
Caribbean Destination Wedding
Do you dream of a destination wedding? Selecting the location to tie the knot is one of the hardest decisions in the wedding planning process. Considering hometowns, churches, venues, and travel can be overwhelming. Many couples choose to host a destination wedding and invite their guests on a journey to an exotic locale that combines the honeymoon and wedding location.
St. Thomas and St. John in the USVI are stunning wedding destinations with tons to do for every guest. With the wide variety of venue and activity options available, you are sure to please everyone in your group. At Cruz Bay Watersports, our special events team is more than just adventure specialists. We work in tandem with the Ritz Carlton St. Thomas and The Westin St. John hotels to ensure wedding events go smoothly, from rehearsal dinners and intimate wedding ceremonies, to receptions on our catamaran, the Lady Lynsey.
Ladies, grab that tiara, the pink feather boa, suntan lotion, and your group of closest girlfriends and board the Island Spirit for an on-the-water bachelorette party trip to the BVI. Start that day off with a light breakfast before heading to your first snorkel stop. After swimming in the turquoise waters and getting some sun, we’ll head to the beautiful beach at White Bay and grab a drink at the Soggy Dollar Bar. Try their famous “Painkiller” drink, play games, and then wrap up the day sipping cocktails on the way back to the USVI. It’s more than just a night out on the town, it’s a fun day spent with friends and family making memories and sharing new adventures.
For the fellas, rent a private boat for a completely unique day at sea. Our private boat rentals are equipped with snorkel gear, sodas, mixers, and beer. Your captain can help you create a custom itinerary that combines snorkel stops, fishing destinations, and secluded islands to explore. And don’t miss the historic Callwood Rum Distillery in the BVI. It will be a one-of-a-kind bachelor party!
Unique Ceremonies and Receptions
The USVI offers plenty of unique wedding ceremony and reception options from white sandy beaches to the deck of a luxury catamaran. For barefoot weddings in the sand, Cinnamon Bay and Trunk Bay in St. John are considered the top beaches in the world. On St. Thomas, The Ritz Carlton offers a variety of wedding venue options that can accommodate any style of wedding, including an ocean view pavilion for large weddings, an intimate beach gazebo for smaller parties, or on the deck of the Lady Lynsey, a luxury 53-foot catamaran. Say “I do!” at sea underneath a stunning Caribbean sunset.
Caneel Bay home to some of the most secluded beaches on St. John is another popular wedding destination. For a unique and romantic way to see the secluded beach board the Island Dream catamaran for a sunset sail complete with champagne and hors d’oeuvres.
Guest and Family Activities
Modern weddings are often more than just a ceremony and reception. Couples often provide detailed lists of things to do for family and guests. Instead of the traditional tourist excursions, take advantage of a unique way to explore the Caribbean. YOUR WAY! Private yacht charters allow groups to customize their own unique trips. From exploring the white sand beaches and snorkeling under the sea, to exploring remote caves and swimming up to island bars. Your guests are treated to customized itineraries by the staff and crew taking you where you want to go and when.
