    Trip Advisor is full of the most negative, rude, under appreciative people in the world! I made sure to post about our trip as soon as we got back to prove that we had an a amazing time and to help so many brides out there! Hope the answers you are receiving here are helpful. I love Turks and Caicos and Providenciales island. We could not have been more happy with our choice. We wish we could do it all over again!!!!

      Hi Ladies- Although I'm getting married in Playa in October, I just attended a DW in T&C last weekend. We all stayed at the Royal West Indies (RWI) and the wedding & reception was held at the Seven Stars. First, I'm so glad the bride and groom asked everyone to stay at the RWI. Prices there are definitely reasonable compared to the other resorts. It was small, quaint and had all the amenities would could possibly desire. We loved that the group could gather at the restaurant or in the hot tub each night and chat. The rooms at the RWI were awesome. We had two couples in a 2-bedroom suite. The rooms were very nice and had a full kitchen and huge living room. There's nothing like making breakfast and having a cup of coffee on the balcony! (Btw- groceries in T&C are super expensive. Mustard was like $4!)

      Ok- on the ceremony. The bride had her ceremony at 5pm on beach in front of the Seven Stars. Great set-up...etc. We then had cocktails on the beach- super strong- and took a bunch of group photos. Next we moved to an indoor banquet room where everything was set-up very nice; however, still a casual feel. The spacing between the courses was a little long, but I don't think anyone noticed except the bride! We were all having great conversation! The reception was held at an open bar/lounge area between the pool and the beach. It was a great location for the reception...perfect space for our crowd of 25-30. (I wouldn't suggest more than 30 unless you rearrange the lounge furniture.) Since dinner was a bit long, they served the cake at the reception area...much appreciated...the chocolate raspberry cake was to die for!

      We had a great time and even continued on after at a local bar across the street- can't recall the name...this after several hours of drinking! Oh the photographer, I think it was Brilliant photography was super awesome! He was great to work with and knew how to liven the crowd and get some fab shots. The hair and make-up lady also did an amazing job. (Not sure her name/company, but I'll try to get the info if anyone's interested!) It was such a great time!! I hope my vendors are as great as the ones in T&C. Good luck ladies! The views in T&C were spectacular!
