    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?

We are also working with a TA who is going to price The Somerset (which I LOVE!!!) and nearby hotels for our guests. Thank you both for such great information.
          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

            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.

              Wow, those pictures are absolutely beautiful. Krys do you have the contact information for the Bay Bistro? How far is it from The Somerset?

                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.
