Say "I Do" Amid the Romance and Pristine Beauty of Scrub Island

Old-World Caribbean Charm and Modern Day Luxury at the BVI's Newest Destination Create the Perfect Setting for Your Fairytale Wedding

SCRUB ISLAND, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) - Your wedding day deserves an enchanting setting, exclusive accommodations, gourmet culinary creations and impeccable service -- all things that are possible on Scrub Island, the British Virgin Islands' newest luxury destination. Book a wedding here and all who serve you will strive for perfection in every detail, whether your special day is just for the two of you or for a large gathering of family and friends.

A tropical sanctuary discovered nearly 500 years ago by Christopher Columbus, Scrub Island encompasses 230 acres fringed by natural beaches that shelve gently into the azure sea. Protected coves, panoramic views and breathtaking nature trails invite exploration by guests. Scrub Island resort, the first BVI development to open in more than 15 years, includes luxurious ocean-view accommodations, a full-service marina, an upscale spa, a state-of-the-art exercise facility, retail shops, boat rentals and excursions, and private beaches.

Here on Scrub Island, the bride and groom can choose from several breathtaking tropical settings to say their vows. Hold a cliffside ceremony, overlooking the turquoise waters of the sea against a backdrop of the Great Camanoe. Say "I do" on a soft-sand beach with the soft sounds of gentle waves mingling with wedding music. Cement your commitment to each other in a grassy island meadow. Or, move the ceremony indoors to a 2,145-square-foot ballroom, the BVI's largest, which can accommodate up to 120 guests or can be divided into three smaller rooms for more intimate gatherings.

Before the ceremony begins, the bride and her wedding party can pamper themselves with relaxing massages and beautifying manicures and pedicures amid the natural splendor of The Spa Villa. With spectacular treatment rooms overlooking the crystal blue waters and a private soaking lounge, the spa is a place unlike any other. Highly trained therapists deliver masterful experiences enticing the senses while rejuvenating the mind -- all perfectly timed for the bride to prepare herself for her special day.

Scrub Island's friendly, helpful staff will also help coordinate all aspects of the wedding, making the planning process effortless for the bride and groom. Let staff make arrangements with vendors, including florists, photographers, ministers and musicians. Someone will accompany the engaged couple to fill out the necessary paperwork to obtain your marriage license. Plans can also be made to ship special gifts or amenities for guests, or to schedule daily room deliveries to the guests' rooms during their stay. Staff can also suggest and plan outings for the wedding party or arrange any activities for your guests.

Finish your perfect day with a flower petal turndown on your king-sized bed, adorned with plush, comfortable linens. All rooms unite old world Caribbean charm and understated modern luxury, with rich woods, natural stone flooring, vibrant colors, bamboo ceiling fans, wood-beamed ceilings, and verandas with timeless teak wood furniture.
