USVI | HAPPILY EVER AFTER

Lynda Lohr

Once you’ve found your perfect partner, wedding bells might ring for a destination wedding. Whether a simple ceremony or an all-out event is on your mind, the U.S. Virgin Islands beckon. The islands boast a veritable army of wedding planners and other event professionals that include officiants, photographers, caterers, florists, musicians and much more.

Various hotels and resorts have also joined the celebration. Many offer complete packages that include everything from standard wedding components, including photography and flowers, to highly personalized details that will make your moment as distinctive as you.

Whether you choose to hold your ceremony on the beach or amid the historic ruins of a sugar mill — this is the place to make your fantasies a reality. Few places offer more romantic scenery for a destination wedding than the U.S. Virgin Islands, and fewer still grant couples the comfort of getting married in a location where the language, the currency and the laws are all familiar and conform to those back home. Plus, once the vows have been said and the reception is over, you can make a seamless shift from bride and groom to “happily ever after” in this idyllic honeymoon destination.

Tie the knot, renew your vows or profess your undying love and commitment to each other on the U.S. Virgin Islands. It will undoubtedly be a highlight of your trip.

SPECTACULAR SPAS

If there’s anything more gratifying than a Caribbean getaway, it’s an island escape that includes an appointment at one of the U.S. Virgin Islands’ lush tropical spas.

Few experiences can match the invigorating indulgence of a well deserved day of pampering Virgin Islands–style. Lie back at an oceanfront massage cabana for a papaya and coconut oil rubdown, or settle in to one of the serene spa treatment rooms for a mango facial or a seaweed wrap.

From cozy treatment lodges to opulent oases, spa aficionados can sign up for tried-and-true ancient techniques as well as the latest in body refining technologies. The U.S. Virgin Islands’ spas come in an array of sizes,Themes and price ranges. Many resort and hotel spas, as well as independent retreats, offer extensive menus of body- and soul-soothing services that focus on regeneration, relaxation and rejuvenation. For a heavy dose of royal treatment, add an afternoon at one of the many spas to your itinerary. You’ll go from strolling on sand to walking on clouds.

If the natural beauty of the islands isn’t enough to soothe your body and spirit, a trip to one of the heavenly spas here will certainly do the trick.
