Virgin Island Wedding Availability
The best time to get married in the Virgin Islands is April, May, June and July. Fortunately, our venue is available all year round. Having all-year availability at the Hills, St. John helps you better plan anything from the large formal wedding you’ve always wanted, to spur of the moment, intimate elopements. Other types of wedding venues we book include vow renewals, second marriages, small family weddings and commitment ceremonies.
As far as planning for the best time to marry “weather-wise,” the Virgin Islands have a tropical climate. That means that the weather pretty much stays in the 70s to mid-80s most of the year, but expect more rain during October and November. Also, the ocean waters of these gorgeous isles are warm enough for swimming year round.
Nothing quite compares to the “Beverly Hills” of the Caribbean, St. John. During your stay at our gem of a villa at The Hills, you will think, “This is where I belong.” Outstanding, friendly service, luxe accommodations, lovely amenities and epic views will make your stay during your wedding venue or honeymoon a memorable and romantic paradise escape.
You can stay and relax in the air conditioned comfort of your own private villa, and our mesmerizing ocean views allow you to watch ships traversing the sapphire waves, catch fiery sunsets on the horizon and marvel at seabirds soaring overhead.
Whether you are honeymooning in a small villa such as our heavenly 3 BR Guavaberry Villa
, or kicking back with an island cocktail with your wedding party in our more spacious 6 BR Passion Fruit Villa
, you will be amazed at the array of special amenities The Hills offer.
When you finish with all the hustle and bustle of your wedding activities, our helpful staff at The Hills can assist with booking en suite massages, facials and hair & nail services through several fine health and beauty spas nearby.
After enjoying all the villas have to offer, you can stroll along any of the island’s white sand beaches, snorkel among hundreds of species of tropical fish, or enjoy browsing through the multitude of USVI outlets that USA Today
has labeled a “shopaholics paradise.”
