Planning a Wedding ?


When considering venues for your wedding, reception or other event, there are many things to consider, including your budget, your personal vision, and available options. Here are some questions to ask before settling on a location for your special event 

  • Does the view match your goals for sunrise or sunset as a backdrop ?

  • How will guests find and get to the location?  

  • Can this location hold the number of guests I will have, even if that number changes before the event?

  • Will my event include catered food and if so, does it have tha accessibility the caterer will need? 

  • Are there homeowner association, National Park, or individual property owner rules that will prevent making my personal vision come true?

 

Want to save $$?

   > Have a simple beach ceremony and consider a catered barbeque on a St. John beach

   > Hold the ceremony surrounded by history at one of our VI National Park plantation ruins

   > Skip the tuxedo and designer gown–go for a more casual look graced with island flowers

   > Limit events at the villa to a dinner for the parents or bridal party the night before the ceremony

   > No matter what your dream is - ask the VIVA team for ideas. We've all been there ourselves! 

Considerations For Any Event:


  • How will you transport your guests to the event location?

    • Taxi or 4WD jeeps?

    • What is the driveway like?

    • What is the parking capacity?

  • How can you coordinate villas with your guests?

    • What if their budgets are all different?

    • How can you make the fussiest friends and relatives happy?

    • How will everyone find each other?

  • What are fun activities for water lovers and those who need something more than a day on the beach?

Let our VIVA! Villas team help you sort it out. Our staff all live on-island and have first hand experience working with groups of all sizes and needs.
