Welcome to the forum!!! I began planning my wedding at the beginning of this year in Turks & Caicos and have everything booked and picked out other than my flowers and hair and makeup the day of!

After researching the amazing hotels on the island and speaking with the coordinators, etc. we chose Villa Renaissace to host our wedding ceremony! Most of my family and close friends will all be staying at suites there and it is an absolutely beautiful property!!

We are also using Tropical Imaging for our photography! Their blog just recently had a post involving a church wedding, and if you read through the archives there are other posts with church ceremonies, I am very certain there is at least on post with a Catholic ceremony!

We are using Diane with Island Harmony as our wedding coordinator, and she has been amazing! I highly recommend her, very organized and responds super quick: Island Harmony, Turks & Caicos Islands, BWI

We are having our reception privately catered by Kissing Fish Catering Company, they are setting up a private dinner with open bar, and a beautiful bonfire a few feet from our ceremony! We are very excited! They also own/operate Bay Bistro, so contact Joan (kissingfishcateringco@yahoo.com) and she will let you know what your options are and the pricing!

I am still debating about flowers, can't decide what I want yet. However I was quoted around $500 for bouquet of orchids, roses, and delphiums, very pricey, but yes, imported items are!

Let me know if you have any questions!!! Good luck planning!!!
Hi there! I was just married in T&C and our wedding day pictures were taken at Villa Renaissance. So gorgeous!

You should check out bringing your own flowers. T&C quoted me at $475 for a bouquet and I thought they were crazy! So I ended up getting clay flowers off of etsy and they came out perfect! We are on TI's blog (meagan and dallas) you can see the flowers there! I would highly suggest it!

Good Luck! T&C is beautiful!

You are not allowed to take flowers back into the US. And everyone wants to keep their bouquet. Now I have mine forever! I would highly HIGHLY suggest it! The woman I purchased mine from duplicated exactly what I wanted! I couldnt be happier and I get to see them everyday!
I know this is late, but as an fyi, you all may want to try shipping your bouquet back to your home. My friend did that when she got married in Mexico. I'm not sure if it's legal to do so, but it worked for her and she still has her original real flowered bouquet. : )

Your wedding pics are wonderful Meagan. I too plan on getting married in T & C and because of the help of your pics, I too will use Tropical Imaging and Shenique for hair and make up. Thanks!

I booked her for my hair and make up as well!!! But that was back in February. Now I am trying to get Anne (I think its Anne or Ana) who works with Maxime to do the make-up for the mothers. Bronze your big day is literally in about two weeks!! Yikes! You must be so excited.

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
