    My Fiance and I are pretty sure we want to have a Destination Wedding in the Turks and Caicos. Just wondering if there is anyone on this forum who was married there?? Thanks!

      Not married there, but had great response from The Palms, Parrot Cay and from Grace Bay Club, all were very helpful!

        That's good to hear! so you called the resorts and asked about wedding packages? Because I called and e-mailed 2 wedding Planners (companies) that work in Turks and Caicos..no answer yet.

          Actually, I emailed them all. I had a very quick response from The Palms & Parrot Cay, but Grace Bay took a day probably (not too bad!)

          The Palms was great to work with, it's one of the nicer resorts and is pretty hip. We eventually decided against T&C b/c we had too many guests...the Palms can only accomodate up to 90 if I remember correctly. I think I posted what information I had from them on the Islands thread, let me find it.

          Here is Parrot Cay:

          I deleted the rest of my information after we decided on a location...sorry!

            I am not getting married there, but I lived there for almost 2 years, so if you have any questions about resorts, restaurants, or anything else local, let me know!

              I'm so happy i joined this board. Thanks for the info.
              AnnKaley: When the time comes I'll definitely be asking about restaurnts because we want our reception in one. Thank you!

              The wedding planner actually e-mailed me today and sent me so much info. I just need to sit down with my Fiance and discuss a budget.

                Just thought I'd chime in b/c I stayed at the Palms while a wedding was going on. The pool at the Palms is beautiful and obviously the beach and water are too, and T&C is great b/c there aren't many people on the beach - I was there in early December last year and could walk for a mile without seeing more than a few people! The wedding at the Palms was in a grassy courtyard area though - maybe b/c the beach isn't that big? I'd try to see if they have other options.

                Also there is a place right next door that is even newer (and pricier) - I think it starts with an S. Somerset? They do weddings too, and the staff there seemed a lot more genuine and nice (or better trained?). They will have fireworks for your wedding (according to a Tripadvisor local specialist who had a sister getting married there). Also pretty pool, more room for tables, but not quite the same as The Palms.

                  We went to t&c about 6 years ago, I think. We absolutely LOVED it!!

                  We stayed at allegro resorts, which I don't think exists anymore, I think its something else now, but the people were soooo nice, we really liked it a lot.

                    Sorry to highjack but my FI wants us to go to T&C in February. We were thinking of staying at the Palms. Does anyone know what the weather is like in Feb?

                      February is a pretty good time to go, if you are from somewhere cold. Dec, Jan and Feb are a little chilly, but if you are coming from the snow, I am sure you will think it is just fine. (while I was living there, I wouldn't put my big toe in the water in February...it is freezing!!!) Most of the storms come through from September through January. February isn't a big travel time down there, which is good for finding good prices.
