USVINice: BlackBridalBliss.com in St. Croix (Part 3 of 3)

A picturesque view of Buck Island, USVI.

The last stint of Triple B’s USVINice Tour was St. Croix. While I had a great time in St. Thomas and St. John, I enjoyed my visit to St. Croix most.

USVINice: BlackBridalBliss.com in St. Thomas (Part 1 of 3)

Triple B's Bridgette Bartlett-Royall hit the ground running in St. Thomas!

Last month I had the pleasure of visiting the U.S. Virgin Islands as part of a USVINice initiative. (!)

It was a wonderful opportunity to visit St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix. There’s so much useful information to share about destination weddings, honeymoons and bachelor/ette getaways that I’m giving each island their own post. Find out what people, places and things in St. Thomas are now on the Triple B radar and why they should be on yours, too! [Read more...]
