    Hi! I am new to this site- I can't believe I never found this before! It's so hard to find other T&C brides. Well my wedding is in about 3 1/2 weeks and I am so so so excited. I am using Nila Destinations and I'm just working on the final details. We will be staying at The Sands and having our reception at the Bay Bistro. Anyone else do this? One concern I had before booking this venue was the size. We will be having a total of 34 guests.
    Also- I was not able to get any references for the Island Boys- but I booked them anyways. Has anyone used the Island Boys? Any comments or suggestions?
    Any thoughts, ideas, questions, recommendations? :) glad I found this site!

      Welcome to the forum!..This is an awesome forum and very helpful. I'm in the process of booking something for beginning of December, 2009. I'm waiting on quotes from different resorts and I haven't made a decision yet. I've heard that Bay Bistro is a great venue location and Nila Destinations always delivers great service. Have you booked your photograph yet? I'm booking Tropical Imaging and they have a blog where you can see pictures from previous weddings (including The Sands and Bay Bistro). Glad to hear from another T&C bride!

        Here are some links to wedding photos from Sibonee/Bay Bistro and The Sands.

        You can check our blog for other locations if you want to look at weddings around the islands for ideas

        On a personal note, Bay Bistro has done a curry night buffet dinner/fundraiser/silent auction for my kid's primary school for the past two years. I really love it for the location (right on the beach) and the intimacy as well. We usually have less than 100 people at the fundraiser and its a great spot (and the food is always fabulous), and tickets sell quick. It's not the high end, glamorous feel as some of the other resorts, but it has a real quaint Caribbean charm that I really enjoy.

        Hope that helps.

          Yes we are using Tropical Imaging :) Between Nila & Tropical Imaging- they made the decision SO easy to choose T&C. I was so torn on which island to choose and as soon as I saw both websites I was totally convinced that this is where we were going. We had our engagement photo shoot last June and we LOVED the pictures. The only thing I would do over- when we went to visit i was in the VERY very beginning stages of the planning and it would have been so much more helpful to have been further along in the planning to make the most of it. but we had a great vaca regardless. Definitely let me know if you have any questions- I have now been researching t&c for 1 year :)

            Your wedding is probably coming up soon! Yes, it's never enough time to plan a wedding; I'm sure every bride feels that at one point during planning:). Are you using any vendors for hair and makeup?

              Actually one of my bridesmaids is my hair stylist and make up artist so we didn't need to get anyone. Wish I had more info!

                My wedding planner Diane from Island Harmony recommends Geraldine from Maxime le Salon for your hair and Ann for make-up (she works out of the same shop).

                  I am also using Tropical Imaging for photographer. I am having Bay Bistro cater my Welcome BBQ the day before the wedding and our cocktail reception after the ceremony.

                    Someone has recommended me Sheque Perfection for hair and make up on this island (contact sheperfection@express.tc). It's good to hear that there are other options available. Do you have a contact info for Maxime le Salon? Just want to get an idea on pricing, location, etc...Thank you!

                      Maxime's number is 649-946-5093, I can't find a website, I'll check with Ann the next time I'm in for a pedicure.

                      April's Place also does hair and I think make up as well...April's Place - Hair - Nails - Skin care on Providenciales Turks and Caicos Islands or april@tciway.tc

                      We have worked with brides who have used all of the above as well as Sheneque, They have all been really happy with the services. You can check our blog under weddings, we always mention the make up artist or hair if they used one, so you can have an idea of what their work looks like, do a search for their name.
