The U.S. Virgin Islands are an exceptional destination for weddings due to their captivating tropical beauty and the convenience of being a U.S. territory. The three main islands are, Saint Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas. With their pristine beaches, lush greenery, and crystal-clear waters, these islands offer a stunning backdrop for ceremonies. Couples can enjoy a seamless planning process, legal simplicity, and a wide range of accommodations and activities, making it an attractive and stress-free choice for a destination wedding in the Caribbean.
St. Thomas is a bustling and developed island known for its stunning beaches, making it a popular stop for cruise lines. In contrast, St. John offers a more rugged and unspoiled experience with fewer resorts, often considered the most beautiful of the three islands. St. Croix, the largest island, is distinctively located 45 miles to the south, offering a multicultural, laid-back atmosphere. The high season for these islands spans from mid-December to mid-April, providing delightful mid-80s temperature highs and mid-70s lows year-round. However, the hurricane season is a force to be reckoned with and should be avoided; the devastating impact
of two Category 5 hurricanes, Irma and Maria, striking the area in September 2017 serves as a stark reminder of the region’s vulnerability.
