Turks and caicos.. Beaches bride to be!!

Recommended Posts

Treeses- I am using both. OUr friends got married at Beaches T&C 5 yrs ago and their reception and ceremony pics were gorgeous.

 

I am using tropical imaging for trash the dress, boudoir, and before ceremony pics all off property. I am using Beaches for the ceremony and reception and to capture the important things I need to capture. Also everyone will be taking pictures. So Im not too worried!!!

I'm also getting married in T&C beaches resort. I have not booked the photography portion yet...they have a few different options. I was leaning towards the option of have a photographer with me thru the wedding and reception, however it's pricey! Any suggestions?

I'm glad to hear from another Turks & Caicos brides to be:)
I'm planning my daughter's wedding there and to use an outside photographer they require a work permit and license which add up to about $1,000.00 before the first picture has been shot.

I have not heard anything about this policy. Is this at Beaches?

I know Beaches does not allow outside vendors (photographers) on their property and given the current immigration climate on island, the proof of work permit statement etc is aimed at brides flying down a photographer to do their wedding. Immigration is closely monitoring all companies/resorts on island and are very serious at cracking down on unauthorized workers so Beaches is reiterating the government's policy to avoid trouble. (be advised that some temporary permits are being denied in photography currently so the fee isn't a sure thing if you are bringing someone from off island)

 

Companies like ours who are resident on island have all of the appropriate permits and licenses in place so the permit issue isn't a problem. However Beaches/Sandals has policy not permitting local photography companies on properties is to ensure income from their in house photographers. That policy is a business decision. We offer day after (or few hours after) sessions with brides from Beaches and take them away from the resort and the crowds to some of our favorite spots on island you might never see. And we find that's a win win situation for all. We'd love to work with brides who choose us on the property (and we know the place well as we provided all of their photography until 3 years ago when they decided to go with in house photography) but that hasn't been an option so we try to work around it to get our brides great photographs and as much stress free planning as possible.

Hi Everyone! I am also getting married in Turks & Caicos in May 2010 at the Beaches resort. My fiance & I are really looking forward to the time away & enjoying an intimate wedding with our family & friends that are able to make the trip with us. Does anyone have any tips on the packages, etc offered by the resort? I want the wedding to be nice but don't want to go overboard.

We loved Beaches in Boscobel so much, we want to try Beaches T&C in about 2 years. The photos are absolutely stunning! I'm sure all you brides will get gorgeous photos with all that scenery!

Does anyone know which airport you have to fly into for Beaches T&C? Or how far it is from the resort? I can't find any of that info on the Beaches sites.

Thanks, and hope everyone has a blast!!

You fly into Providenciales, Turks and Caicos to get to Beaches T&C. The airport code is PLS. Delta, American and USAirways fly there from the US. The island is only 22 miles long and more than 1/3 of it is undeveloped. The airport is less than 15 minutes from the airport (no stoplights on island either). Very quick and painless all around.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
