Awesome we will be bridal twins!! Lol! When is your big day by the way? Are you also doing the sunset cruise? Are you doing your wedding on the beach and reception on the lawn or did you go with the restaurant?

JanineA- I just received the email containing the different food options that are offered. We are not sure which is better (I need to do more reading on BDW) as to if Somerset is a better reception option than a local restaurant. We are only expecting <20 guests, so I want to find something that everyone will enjoy with a beautiful view.

 

The wedding will be on Thursday June 23, 2011 and none of my guests are staying at the Somerset. Our TA is pricing deals at nearby hotels for them. Once we recieve the information, I plan to launch our website to keep everyone on the same page.

 

I have no clue what the Sunset cruise is; I only spoke with Monique for a few minutes today so that I could introduce myself and ask a few questions. Is this something that you're doing?

 

The rehearsal dinner will be at a restaurant; luckily FI's parents will cover the associated costs. Yes, the wedding will be on the beach and the reception on the lawn. What music options are you choosing? I was thinking of a steel drum band. Due to the low numbers of people, I wanted to have something to keep the small crowd lively.

 

I would like to have more pictures of the available options on the property to that we can make a more informed decision of where we'd like the reception.

 

Isn't this exciting?

Ileana is a DREAM!!! T&C is a gorgeous island!!!! You will love it!!!! Good Luck!
I would also highly recommend Shenique from Sheque perfection for hair and makeup! AMAZING!

Here are some recent weddings at the Somerset to show you beach wedding and lawn reception as well as one lawn reception

 

The Wedding of Ryan and Marc at the Somerset | Brilliant by Tropical Imaging

The Wedding of Ryan and Marc at the Somerset | Brilliant by Tropical Imaging

 

Stephanie & Paul get married at The Somerset | Brilliant by Tropical Imaging

The Wedding of Raluca and Dean at The Somerset | Brilliant by Tropical Imaging

 

Just FYI there is only one steel drum band on the island, Provo Primary School (my kids go there and my oldest plays in it). Because all of the kids are between 8-11 years old, they don't really do receptions...way past bedtime (LOL) If you want low key, I would say an ipod, dj or ask the Somerset about Nada.

Bay Bistro is right next door to the Sommerset, just a hop, skip and a jump. Joan is the owner/contact for Bay Bistro/Kissing Fish Catering. I just have Joan's personal email it's joanandclive@yahoo.com (just tell her Krys gave it to you as I didn't have the business one on had...we're old friends)

 

Joan is top notch organized and type A personality (and a whole lot of fun as well) the space is lovely old rustic caribbean (one of the first hotels on the island) and they have done the restaurant space nicely (heading over there in an hour for a birthday lunch for a friend). Clive is an excellent top chef who has headed restaurants in the UK and here on Provo...and a really loveable guy.

 

The Regent Palms is on one side of the Sommerset and Bay Bistro/Sibonee is on the other side.

I second that statement!! Thank you Krys for all the detailed information and for taking so much time to answer questions from all the T&C brides!!! You have no idea how much we all appreciate it!! Especially since there aren't that many T&C brides on the forum (although the number is growing) and it can be hard to find exactly what we're looking for.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
