  1. Thanks, Shannamarie! Bay Bistro will be great. We had dinner there once night and it was great. Our ceremony was at 6pm. We had about an hour and half before sunset. It was a little cooler by then. I ended up actually starting off with wedges, did a trial run on the beach, and found it annoying to have the sand get stuck in the shoes. I ended up wearing cute flat sandals and took off my shoes at one point and don't remember putting them back on. I would bring a pair of flat sandals just in case and test out the sand when you get there. The sand was not hot for us (sand was incredibly so
  2. Thank you! We had the best time. But, I think it was mainly because we were surrounded by our fabulous friends and family! We were debating between Riviera Maya and Turks...Turks was considerably more expensive! Your wedding will be beautiful. I'll post more pics once we get our professional shots! And yay for Philly girls! I actually was born and raised in California and am now a Philly girl. Good luck with your planning! It'll be great!
  3. Thanks, shannamarie! Your wedding is going to be great! I just posted my review (It's My May 2013 Turks and Caicos Wedding). Honestly, I had all these plans to check out restaurants and go on excursions, but my husband and I ended up just spending most of the time hanging out on the beach. Don't feel like you have to go explore the island if you don't feel like it! I think a must though is just take at least a night or so to spend time with your soon to be husband. Although we had so much fun with our guests, it was nice to spend time alone together and let it sink in that we just got ma
  4. Here are a few other pics from the wedding (since the main post was getting so long!): Programs and fans! Candy bar (yes we lugged all that candy over) escort cards and sunglasses favors! Hair shot Make up
  5. Hi Everyone! We just got back from our wedding in Turks and Caicos! It was absolutely perfect. This website was so helpful in deciding on a Turks and Caicos wedding (other contenders were Playa del Carmen, Aruba, Jamaica). We had never visited any of these places, so it was helpful to get the opinions from other brides! We had about 47 guests for our wedding. We stayed at the Sands and used Island Harmony as our wedding coordinators. Kissing Fish was our caterers and Environmental Arts were our florist.Here's a little bit about each of our vendors. Island Harmony I cannot t
  6. I just responded to your other post! I got married at the Sands too! I was also concerned about onlookers..the Sands doesn't have a major resort on one side of it, and that's the side we had our wedding. Diane from Island Harmony took us there to show us our ceremony spot (when we arrived to the island), and I almost cried..it was so beautiful and private. It was perfect. I also did not want sunbathers or random onlookers hanging out at our wedding (although we did have a boat decide to disembark right on beach front and center of our ceremony...it just made it funny and Diane chased them away
  7. I just got back from our TCI wedding and it wasn't at Somerset or Seven Stars. Do you want a beach wedding (like out on the beach)? If so, I'd go with Seven Stars. Somerset is kinda bunched in with the Sibonne and Regent Palms so it'll be harder to have a private ceremony. Seven Stars doesn't have as close of neighbors. We just got married at the Sands, and we were able to have a somewhat private ceremony on one end.It really made it feel like we were having a private wedding (which is hard when getting married on a public beach). We saw a few other weddings when we were there and it jus
  8. We just got back! But I spent all my time on Grace Bay so I can't say much about anywhere else. The beach at Grace Bay was absolutely beautiful! I'm sure the rest of the island has beautiful beaches too!
  9. Hi Paulinern! I just got married in Turks and Caicos last weekend (47 guests). Diane and Michelle from Island Harmony were our wedding planners. They were fabulous! I was a bit of a picky bride with how I wanted everything to look, and they exceeded all my expectations. Also, what I've noticed about some of the vendors on the island is that they are sometimes slow with getting back to you. Diane and Michelle were prompt each time (so was Kissing Fish actually), and answered all my questions/concerns etc..even if they were miniscule. And, I have to say, during the heart of wedding plannin
  10. Sooo, Danie! How was your wedding?!?! We had our wedding on May 26th and it was perfect! I will post a full summary/review on the board soon. I miss Turks and Caicos already!
  11. Hello brides! We're getting married in less than a month in Turks and Caicos! We only have on child at our wedding (my only niece) who is also our flower girl. I want to make sure she has enough activities to do during the reception since she's the only little one. She's 3. Any ideas? I will definitely have a coloring book and crayons, but have any other ideas? She's my only niece (or nephew for that matter) and I want to make sure she has fun. Thanks! Betty btw..the wedding is outside on the beach!
  12. I'm getting married at 6pm! My wedding planner timed it so it would be right before sunset (which i believe is around 7:30pm for me).
