Beautiful pictures and your outfits were gorgeous. I have already added St. Lucia as possible honeymoon locations. For now, wedding planning is the priority then honeymoon afterwards. So exciting!

Looks like you all had a wonderful time. We were at the same resort in March 2010. I loved the nightly music by the pool and amazing sunsets.

Beautiful pictures! Did you ever write a review of the resort you stayed at? I’m getting married in August of 2011 (7 months away!) and in March 2012 we want to go to Sandles in Antigua (which is right near St. Lucia!)

If you have wrote a review can you send me the link?

Unfortunately, we never did get around to writing a review, but we both have nothing but POSITIVE things to say about our resort. We stayed at the Sandals Grande St. Lucian. If you ever have any other specific questions, feel free to email me! :)

Hi Courtney, I just found your blog and love it. Your honeymoon in St. Lucia looked amazing… loved all your pics. I can relate, when I went on my honeymoon I didn’t even have a blog, but yet I was clicking away on all those pics.

OK, so I have to ask, how do you have such gorgeous skin? Your skin is like perfectly glowy, bronzy, without it looking greasy, but it has that glow. What makeup do you use? You look amazing!!!

Hi! :)
Thank you so much for the kind complements! I keep my makeup fairly simple for my skin – Bare Escentuals mineral makeup, plus I just started wearing NARS bronzer in Laguna. I also use Laura Mercier powder blush, but that’s it for what I use on my face. :)

Hi Courtney, I’m going to St Lucia this Friday on my honeymoon, but we are staying at the other resort LA TOC. Did you do any of the excursions? Any tips?? Thanks!

Reply

15 Courtney October 9, 2011 at 10:01 am

Yes!!! We did a full day excursion through Simon Says tours. They aren’t through the resort so they told us not to trust them, but it was by far the best thing we did!! Have a blast :)

Hey Courtney…my fiance and I are going to be booking our honeymoon shortly to St. Lucia. We are looking at the Halcyon resort as it is the cheapest! Which resort would you say had the the most “nightlife” and FUN people! (haha) Also…do you remember how late the shuttle service would run from resort-to-resort? What excursions did you do? Thanks!! :)

17 Courtney December 3, 2011 at 9:30 am

Hey Rachel! Honestly, we didn’t partake in much “nightlife” – most of our days started early on the beach/poolside and ended around 11. Where we stayed (the grande) there was almost always something going on at night, whether it be dancers, a beach party, or something else. We hit up one of the clubs one night with another couple we made friends with at the grande but it was pretty dead. Excursion-wise, definitely look up Simon Says tours. We did 1 excursion while we were there with them and it was phenomenal. Volcanoes, snorkeling, lunch at his house(!), hot springs waterfall, tour of the island. It was the best!! Hope that helps! Have a blast! :)

I’m so glad I found this! I’m getting married in May and we are going to St. Lucia for our honeymoon. I’m so excited to go and looking at your pictures made me confidant that we made the right choice!

So I realize I’m a few years late on this post, but I just found it!! My fiancé and I will be traveling to the Grande St Lucian in just a few short weeks for our honeymoon and i was wondering if you had any packing advice? We will be at the resort for 10 days and Im slipping into packing panic mode!! o_O

Thanks!!
Angelica

I’d say to just keep it simple! Most of our days were spent at the beach or pool, so bathing suits and cover ups are a must. For evenings, our dinners ranged from nice to casual, so I’d say a couple maxi dresses, a couple pairs of shorts or skirts and some tops. Nothing crazy!

I love your postings, to me photos say a lot more than words and you looked like you had an incredible time.
