Changes to our St. Thomas Packages

I spent the morning cleaning up some of our packages, making some additions here and there to our St. Thomas & cruise wedding packages….AS ALWAYS, whenever we make changes to our packages, if you are already booked with Island Bliss Weddings, you have your choice to keep your old package or choose a new one.

The majority of the packages have stayed the same. We have made some changes to our Caribbean Dream Package (add rum punch for guests, removed the photography) and eliminated the Blissful Celebration Package…which may make a return later on.

One of the major changes is that we removed wedding cakes from our packages. We have no control over the wedding cake once it has been ordered. We have the cakes delivered to our venues so we do not see them until delivery (or often times not at all if you are having them delivered to a restaurant). If something is wrong with the cake (color is wrong, flavor is wrong), it is often too late to make any changes. We will still allow for cakes to be delivered to the beach for beachside weddings and of course assist our brides with their cake orders, but the process will be changed a little and we will no longer include them in packages. It’s a measure to ensure the best quality of service we can provide to our clients.

On the St. Thomas wedding packages and Cruise Packages pages, you will now see a list of add-ons that can be added to any package as well.

To make it easy to review, I have copied our old packages here below:


 

Marry Me in the Islands — $250 (this package has not changed)

This is our most basic package. We will assist you with filing the marriage license application and an officiate will meet you at the location of your choice for the ceremony. We will then mail you two certified copies of the license within 30 days of the wedding date, eliminating the need for you to visit the courthouse twice. We’re happy to add on additional services such as photography, music and more. You will receive a customized itinerary a few weeks prior to your trip to confirm the details and timeline of your wedding day.

 


 

Simple St. Thomas Wedding – $495 (this package has not changed)

This package is the same as the Marry Me in the Islands Package but it also includes transportation for the bride & groom  in a luxury SUV from your ship or hotel to the courthouse, to the ceremony site and then return transportation to the location of your choice after the ceremony. This also includes a bouquet for the bride with our signature seahorse charm and a boutonniere for the groom. You will receive a customized itinerary a few weeks prior to your trip to confirm the details and timeline of your wedding day. The officiate is happy to take photos for you with your camera or you can add a photographer package. Photography packages start at $275.
