    Our wedding is in 4 1/2 weeks in Providenciales, Turks&Caicos. We've figured out a lot of things in a short span of time but we still need to find a florist, cake and dj. Does anyone have vendor recommendations for Provo? We're going to do a visit to the island in the next week or so and would meet with any suggested vendors then.

    Thanks in advance!

      The best tasting and looking cakes hands down are from Diane Guess. You can email her at guess@express.tc

      Her cakes are gorgeous and are the most mouth watering things around. (all of the local expats use her for any and all occasions). She has lovely flavors and really yummy frostings and fillings as well. (she did my 40th birthday cake, 2 layers of chocolate cake with a middle cheesecake layer with gold flecked chocolate buttons....amazing).

      Every wedding we shoot her cakes, there is none left over...she really takes pride in her cakes not just from how they look but how they taste. Be aware that you won't get a Fondant covered option from her as working here and keeping a cake chilled so the fondant doesn't fall apart just isn't a great option. On the plus side her buttercream frosting is amazing and she really does a smooth finish on the cakes (can you tell I love her cake?) She doesn't have a website, but she can email you sample photos etc of things she has done. (she makes her own sugared seashells and pearls and also does this amazing bamboo styled cake as well). Very artistic.

      If you are visiting, she can meet with you and see what you are looking for. Florist wise, I haven't seen any that stand out more than others, but we have a new florist that has just opened on island at Christmas and they are located in the kiosk in front of the IGA and I think they are opening at the Ports of Call. The flowers that have been on display have been really unusual and lovely. I know through friends that the girl running it is very switched on. I'll see if I can find a name and number. I recently got some great lillies from there and the arrangement was really modern and well done. If your on island, it's to the left as you enter IGA.

      Can't help on DJ's, I tend to pay attention to cake at the weddings and shooting, but I would ask your coordinator or your hotel

      Hope that helps.

          Hi Karol,

          I was doing my grocery shop this morning and picked up Louise's card from the flower shop.

          The company is Flowers by Environmental Arts. The manager/florist is Louise Henderson and her email is louise@environmentalarts.tc

          She said they can get anything in (a first for this island!) and they also rent out their glassware etc...(which is really nice). You can give her a shout to see if the pricing works for you on what you want.

          Hope that helps.

          Krys
