  1. i just sent you a pm with links to my photos. ;-)
  2. Hi Linzayr - The airline was great- as soon as they saw the dress and the tux bags, they were very eager to help us. They reccomended the first class closet for the tux and the overhead bin for the dress due to the size. The only other items we carried on were our personal items (my purse and his backpack). I loved the adult jacuzzi deck for our wedding reception - it was the perfect space, quiet and over looking the ocean. I had 32 people, so your 24 guests should fit just fine. Tables have 8 people to each, so you should have plenty of space to dance. All the formalities, cake cutting, first dance, father/mother dance, are all done before dinner is served. Our MOH/BM gave the speeches during dinner. As for the reception, I think our guests were seated for about 20 mins before the ceremony started. They all met at 3:30 and walked over to the ceremony and I was pretty on time, so I estimate I walked down the aisle pretty close to 4 p.m. I honestly don't remember how long it took to sign the papers, I know the steel drum player was playing a song, but I don't remember what it was. Basically you and your groom sign 5 of the same document and then the BM and MOH (or your witnesses) also sign. then the officiant signs and seals and then he announces you as Mr. and Mrs. Hope this helps.
  3. Hi Ladies - Sorry this is a few weeks late, but I finally posted my review. Can be found here: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/products/beaches-turks-caicos-resort-villages-spa/reviews/5924
  4. i packed ours in my checked luggage- had no issues.
  5. Ladies - just got some of my pictures from TI! David is amazing and was awesome to work with. More to come this weekend, but here is the link to the blog: http://brilliant.tc/blog/2012/03/the-wedding-of-jillian-michael-nakano/
  6. For the trial it was $45 each for the make up and hair and for the day of the wedding it was $90 for the hair and $75 for the make up. Both my hair and make up lasted all day and night.

  8. I booked my hair/ make up trial and day of hair/make up in advance - like 2 or 3 months when I was doing a planning session with Dexter. Marilyn did my hair and make up and it was fabulous! She also did my mom's hair and make up. I don't think you need to book so far in advance though- I booked my hair and makeup for my session with TI (day after the wedding) right after I finished getting my hair/makeup done for my wedding.
  9. Hi Ladies, Just got back on Friday from my 10 days in Paradise! Will right a full review this weekend, but wanted to share a few pics. In short, Beaches is breathtaking, service was excellent, food was fantastic. We are frequent visitors to Sandals, so we knew we made the right choice by choosing Beaches. We used the Beaches photographers and videographers for the day of the wedding (Jimmie was our photographer and he was great- the photos below were taken by him) and then took photos with David from TI the next day. David was awesome to work with, I can't wait to see these photos! I have more photos on facebook and kodak. Please message me if you'd like the links. More to come soon! Best, Jill
  10. Hi Jessimd, I'm getting married in a few weeks, so have not gone though the whole process, but this is what I know: You will need to send the office in Miami the following documents: Notarized Affidavid of Spinsterhood (your planner can send you the template) Notarized Affidavid of Batchelorhood (your planner can send you the template) Notarized copy of Passport Notarized copy of original birth certificates Wedding Worksheet (the planner can send to you - asks for your names, arrival dates, wedding number etc) We also sent notarized copies of our drivers licences too. You mail the notarized copies to Miami and carry the originals with you to Turks. I sent our documents overnight with tracking and the Miami office sent me an e-mail the next day that they had all of the doucuments they needed to start processing. Good luck, Jill
  11. Lizzdee, Congratulations! You looked beautiful! Thanks for all of the feedback - I'm have the extact same set up as you did - 30 guests, 3 hour reception, 4 p.m. wedding. Thanks also about mentioning the spa letting you swap the mani/pedi for another service. I have this service booked - but since I do gel nails, I won't need it. Can't wait to see your photos on facebook!

  15. KristaKates - thanks for posting! I was planning on doing the sand ceremony too, but after seeing your photo I am going to buy my own and bring it down to Turks!
